"What's the lettering on their cloaks?" Muroe asked Nara, noticing Aurora's curiosity and wondering himself.
"Elven invisibility runes," Nara replied. "Every cloak their warriors use is covered in them. While the runes are active you could look straight at an elf and it would be like they weren't there."
"Hence why they could get so close to us without us knowing about it," Barkeley said with a grimace. "Well at least they'll be a potent ally if they decide to help us."
The elves conversation finally ended, the elf the leader had been talking to seemed to vanish again as he turned to face them, a smile on his face.
"My apologies," he said, bowing. "We have had intruders attempting to enter the forest to discover our secrets so the Elven Sentinels have been on especially high alert. My name is Sangar, captain of the Sylvan Sentinels, some of whom you can see here," he said as the bow-armed elves finally lowered their weapons. "Who do I have the honour of welcoming to our forest?" he asked, kissing Aurora's hand in apology and revealing a pair of astoundingly blue eyes.
"I am Nara, daughter of Queen Elena of Shadow Glade," she said, bowing. "This is Muroe, Barkeley and Aurora, three young human wizards who have earnt the respect of the lord of Dragonblight himself so I'd like to think youcan trust them," she said, smiling slightly.
"My apologies Aurora," Sangar said, bowing to her. "If it is any consolation I went after you because I thought you were the biggest threat. I get the impression you are more powerful than you might realise."
