“OK, let me see if I’m getting this,” Peter said, frustration in his voice. “We were attacked…here, even though you have strong defenses around the Ten Pinnacles, because Kahrnahrgx and his followers are desperate.” He glared at Kimar, struggling hard with the impulse to blame someone for what happened to Freida.
“Yes,” Kimar answered.
“Well, it seems not so desperate as incredibly bold!” he said, beginning to engage his mind over his shaken emotions. “And your sentries, or guards, or whatever you call them, only became aware of the attack moments before it took place, because the enemy found a way to hide plans of his attack somehow.”
“Yes,” Kimar said again.
“And the reason for the attack was to capture…Danielle,” Peter continued, his voice catching at his daughter’s name. “But they took Freida, at great cost to their troops, because they’re convinced that Freida, not Danielle, is the Chosen One.”
“Given that Danielle was not here at the time of the attack, but with Lohxnahr and Zarentil, there was no question that they would take the one human female child they found,” the great gargoyle explained.
