    A Master of Many Pets

    The pet shivered as he realized he had forgotten once again to wear his cloak. Looking back, he cursed at himself for ever taking a shelter in this cold, damp cave. But, he had made his pact with the demon and there was no turning back now. If only that fool Casca has lived up to his potential. Enough of that now, the pet muttered to himself. Worry about your skin when you deliver this news. Bloody council!

    Approaching the faint glow, he knew what was waiting around the corner. For a moment, he considered making a run for it. Alas, he knew very well that it would be in vain for his very soul was now bound to the demon. But, that knowledge only made him shiver more.

    Turning the corner, he was surprised to find the great room filled with a strange mist. The light emitting from the rift that he knew was somewhere in the mist gave it an unnatural glow.

    What ill-news does my pet bring for me now? the now familiar hoarse voice said to him.

    Master, I-I-I… Well, it is not all bad news, you see we can still…

    SILENCE! Do you think you can butter up your rotten stench of failure? Tell me, has the council declared war on New Magincia?

    Looking down, wishing he could be anywhere else but here, the pet spoke again.

    Nay! The council is resisting the use of force. They have…

    Pause. Then, again with great trepidation.

    …started negotiating the proposal put forth by the New Magincian rebels. I do not believe that they will succeed thoug…

    Remind me again? Were you not convinced of a declaration of a war this very night?

    I-I-I-I… Forgive me, Master! I did not think…

    The voice roared in anger as the pet struggled to think of a way to mollify him.

    Fool, do not make the mistake of thinking that you are my only option. I have many other pets like you!

    In fact, one of them is quite capable of derailing these negotiations. Consider yourself fortunate that you might still be of some use to me. Now, leave and do not return till you are summoned!

    Bowing his head, the pet grovelled his way out. Glad to still have his skin (literally), he was surprised to feel a tinge of jealousy at the mention of others like him.

    [OOC]: Since 'no one' knows about this, yet... Edited for content...

    Here is hoping that compromise and level heads should prevail in all negotiations between the Brit Council and the New Magincians. Time will tell who or what is behind the seemingly illogical rantings of those that wish to war.
