Excerpt: Zevarik chuckled as he saw Sebastion's expressions change while he was putting it all together. Zevarik was so arrogant that he began to confirm all of what the elf was thinking. "Yes Sebastion I am employed Madam Rose and Lord Raven...but only because they are going to be the winning side. They have Morith's direct blessing, and as I began to see at how easily they were dispatching all the troops we were sending to attempt to secure the gem mines I knew who's side I had to be on." Sebastion spat on the ground then said, "You're a traitor to your own people...even dark elves do not betray their own." "Perhaps...but as I am sitting atop my mountain of precious gems and counting my thousands of gold coins I will try my best to feel bad about it." Zevarik said sarcastically. Sebastion's anger and rage could hardly be contained any more. He barked a command word and became fully visible again unsheathing his swords as he did. Zevarik raised a brow as he saw Sebastion raise his blades. Sebastion stared at Zevarik dangerously as he said, "Let's dance."
