Earlier that week !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Boris and Catherine ran towards the confrontation between Trinity and Desiree. He had not seen anyone so well trained in seduction and subterfuge before and both were baffled as the woman dove into the water and disappeared from sight. They ran up to Trinity who was also surprised how fast the woman disappeared. "Lady Catherine, Captain Trinity, nay worry as I will send Sergeant Millott after her immediately. If anyone can track her he can. Make the necessary preparations for the fleet readiness and I will go after her myself. This is personal now between me and that woman". Boris had Sergeant Millott summoned to his quarters on the "Dragon". He gave him the glove Desiree had given him with her scent still on it. Sgt Millott was prepared and took his tracking bird with him. This black seahawk could cover vast distances and would ensure a quick reply to Boris once Desiree's tracks and final destination were found. As Millott departed towards lands unknown, Boris stepped downstairs to the scene of the theft. Out of sight from the others downstairs on the ship tavern he unleashed his fury. "THAT *****". He ripped the cork off the rum bottle with his teeth and spat it against the floor in disgust , took a deep swig from it and threw it against the wall. The bottle shattered in a thousand pieces. He kicked the nearest chair and then flipped the tables leaving the place a mess. Razulah heard the commotion and feared the captain had lost his mind. He ran downstairs to see Boris kicking chairs, breaking bottles and in a state of pure rage. "Captain, I can bring more chairs and bottles for you to finish your outburst then regain your composure if you wish" Razulah stood here looking at him and then broke into laughter to lighten up the intensity. Boris looked back at him still in a rage with another bottle of rum in his hand, he grinned at Razulah then put the bottle down on the last remaining upright table. He saw the look on Razulah's face and he started to laugh himself. "Razulah, this has just begun. We must get the map back before she gives it to the Obsidians and I know they are behind this. I will deal with her personally after its over and she has no idea what I have in store for her. Boris stormed out of the ship and went to the shore. He found the highest area of Dragomir and sat there thinking and waiting for the sun to rise. He heard the voice of the Sea Goddess speak to him. "Do not let the woman they sent cloud your mind nor your heart. You were fooled with the oldest tricks available to mankind. You are human after all and your intense passion for life and women will continue to get the better of you. Control it and it will not lead to your downfall. Succumb to it and you will fail. Have faith and go to where your voyage in this land started and you will get your guidance and answers there" Boris heard the voice vanish from his mind. He was calm now and he knew of what land he spoke. He would travel to that secluded beach in Paxlair. He would find his answers there. For now he would look to the Coastline in front of him and gather his thoughts. The sun rose and he had a new purpose with the future of Novia shaped by his victory or failure. Desiree must be found at all costs.
