Balinor walked with Gaius on his rounds. He was leaving in the morning and he needed to make sure Gaius understood that there was danger coming.
"I need to know that you believe me, Gaius." Balinor said as the walked through the lower town.
"I do. Alice and I have started to plan our escape. But are you sure that this is more than the usual superstition that follows our kind?"
"I am." Balinor nodded. "The change has already begun. Nimueh has caused it."
"What could she have done?" Gaius asked. "Yes, her magick is strong but is it strong enough to bring doom on us all?"
"Gaius, believe me when I tell you it is Nimueh who will bring on our doom. I have seen it in my visions. She has meddled with things she shouldn't. We may have less time than we think. You and Alice should leave with me in the morning."
"We aren't ready. I have patients to care for." Gaius explained.
"Who will care for those patients when you are burning at the stake?" Balinor asked. He grabbed Gaius by the arm to stop him. "You don't want to be here when the fires start burning. Come with me to Ealdor. Hunith will welcome you both."
Gaius looked away for a moment. "I will talk to Alice tonight. If she agrees we will leave with you in the morning."
"Thank you." Balinor patted him on the shoulder. "Pack only what you cannot bear to leave. We must be quick."
Gaius took a breath and started walking again. "Alice will want to go but he still had his doubts."
