Making Their Next Move

David knew where he needed to be now.  It was there in his head, crystal, where a minute before had been cloudy confusion.  He had the steps imprinted; contours of the horizon; knew to the day how long it would take and who he would meet there.  The why was hidden from him but he knew enough not to worry.  That, too, would become clear when necessary; no need to question now.

“Close call with your piece!” a figure to the right of the board commented. “Thought you were going to have trouble deciding where to send him for a while.”

“Just toying with you,” the second responded, hand hovering over several figures not yet in play. “He was always set for war.”

“Tomorrow for that? We’ve still the rebellion in Argyn to stall and things are looking decidedly dicey over in Syll on board four…”
