"Cedric’s eyes opened slowly, his vision blurred. He blinked a few times and rubbed his eyes, and as his focus returned to him, he realised he was in a simple but warm and inviting building. His last memory had been of falling through the glacier – he had thought himself dead, though evidently he had (thankfully) been wrong.
A soft voice came from across the room “Ah, he is awake! Quick, fetch Master Kang and inform him our guest is awake”
A man walked across the room to meet him. He was an elf, with his hair tied up on top of his head. He was wearing a dark blue robe with golden yellow coloured garments visible beneath the robes. The prayer beads he wore in abundance on his person let Cedric know he was in the presence of one of the Warrior Monks of the Order of the Golden Lotus. He had met many monks in his years living in Oakesgate, where they frequently visited the markets to stock up on provisions. It was well known that they lived in isolation in the Drakespine Mountains in their fortified monastery. Is this where he was now? Had the Monks rescued him from certain death?
“Did you bring me here?” He attempted to sit up and pain wracked his body – clearly he had not escaped his fall unscathed!
The Monk jumped to his aid immediately, helping Cedric to sit up on the edge of his bed. “You were left at the gate of our monastery sir. We had thought you near death, but it would seem the Dragon King Bahamut smiles upon you as you not only continue to draw breath, but have now regained your consciousness”.
“how long have I been here?” asked Cedric
“You arrived here 3 days ago”.
“Who brought me here? My last memory was falling from the Ice bridge on the Glacier”
“That is some miles from here. Clearly someone must have found you and helped you here, but it was not one of our own.”
“Thank you for providing me aid and for saving my life good sir” Cedric said finally. Then he sat and pondered for a few minutes. The Barghest he had fought would have killed him if it had too survived the fall, and it was the only other living being up there with him to his knowledge. Who had Saved his life?
Then he remembered, his fading vision….the Dragon!"
