Lord of Small Magics – 29

Meck placed a spell to lesson Anders weight and bind his broken leg against jarring. He might not be able to heal Anders but he could prevent his injuries from becoming worse, or at least he hoped he could.

Anders examined his newly bandaged leg. “That’s a helpful skill.”

“I’m sure the healers can do much better.” Meck tried not to blush under Anders’ admiring gaze but he couldn’t stop a smile from spreading across his lips. He liked that the general never failed to compliment him.

“As much as I appreciate all this care I think it might go better if I transformed.”

“Can you really turn into a wolf?”

“Yes.” Anders nodded.

“Have you ever done it while injured?”

Anders paused as if considering the situation. “No.”

Meck considered the ramifications. “Do you think it will hurt you more if you shift while injured?”

Anders spent a few minutes looking over the battlefield. “In my wolf shape I can at least have three lets instead of four making it easier to get across.”

Meck was a bit disappointed he couldn’t argue with that logic. Worry had him frowning as he took in the scene of blood splattered bodies and battle cries. “Okay. I’ll be right behind you.”

“Or you could stay over here where it’s safe,” Anders argued.

“No where is safe, we’re in a battle,” Meck pointed out. He wasn’t trying to be difficult by pointing out their situation but there wasn’t any reason for Anders to rush off on his own when other people could be helping him.

Anders scowled. “Fine. Have it your way.”

“If I had it my way we’d be back in the tent having sex,” Meck said in a low voice.

The prince’s abrupt coughing spell told him he hadn’t spoken quietly enough. He frowned at the royal but only received an amused look in response.

“Stop trying to stare down the prince,” Anders scolded, nudging Meck.

“You have to get the general patched up before you worry about anything more strenuous.” The prince’s serious expression was only marred by his sparkling eyes.

“Fine. If you think it won’t kill you,” Meck gave in gracelessly trying not to show how much this idea worried him.

“Only one way to find out.” A feral light gleamed in Anders’ eyes.

Meck only had a few seconds to catch his meaning before a bright glow encompassed the general and he shrank from human sized to large wolf sized. Meck got an impression a gorgeous grey and white wolf before he was running away from him and across the battlefield.

“Look at him go,” the prince muttered.

“He is fast,” Meck agreed as the wolf tore across the field, dodging swords, kicks and the occasional bolt of magic shot toward him. He hoped he could follow as easily without getting injured. Casting a few more protection spells on himself he jogged toward the healers hoping no one tried to stop him. Halfway across something slammed into Meck sending him flying into someone else’s shield.

Meck grunted with the impact.

His ears rang. Shaking his head he tried to clear out the sounds ricocheting around in his skull. A strong grip pulled him to his feet. The prince’s white-toothed grin eased his concern.

“Go!” the prince shouted.

Stumbling more than running, Meck made it over to the healers. Luckily the tents weren’t so large that it took long to find Anders. He lay in the middle of the tent with four fawning healers.

“Glad to see you are feeling better,” Meck said. He looked away from the enticing bare chest. Now wasn’t the time to indulge in his fantasies.

“I made it!” Anders loopy smile made it all worthwhile.

“Yes you did. “

“Stay still,” one of the healer’s said. “We’ll never get you healed with you squirming around.”

Anders froze, a wry smile on his lips. “Sorry.”

Meck doubted Anders truly felt remorse if the teasing looks he gave Meck through his lashes were put into the equation. Whoever had reported Anders as an angry, volatile soldier hadn’t really known him very well.

  1. “Whoever had reported Anders as an angry, volatile soldier hadn’t really known him very well.”
    Or maybe they were right and Neck just sees the heart of Anders.

  2. I can’t wait for the full length of this. Thank for got everything this month Amber, Sheri and guests.

  3. I love this story… Looks like Anders is going to make it but what the heck it Meck.. Hope we get more of this story.. ❤️❤️

  4. I was thinking if this will be the time that Vedder and the prince will meet, they keep missing each other

  5. Silly Anders. Glad they got to the healer and that now the Prince has seen them together he might not try and separate them later.

  6. I do love your birthday books they are some of your best works must be the holiday season brings out the best in you. Here’s to birthdays. Hope you have many more!!!

  7. Yep, the healers gave Anders the good stuff, LOL. How badly is Meck injured? He’s still running on adrenaline and when he crashes he’s going to be in a world of hurt. Are the prince and Vedder going to meet soon? Love to see that–it’d either be a hissing match or a kissing match!

  8. Anders appears to not be in pain any more, but Meck is really going to hurt when he finally calms down…..and whats up with the Prince? So when will the whole story be out….soonish I’m hoping.

  9. Puppy Uppers anyone, or is it Doggie Downers. Either way Anders is one loopy pup, and Meck needs to get checked out before Anders recovers. Definitely need more of the Prince and Vedder:)

  10. I really love this story! I love how Meck is standing up to the prince and I can’t wait until Vedder meet’s the prince… but Anders and Meck are the best!!

  11. This is an awesome story; I both want the entire rest of the story right now, and don’t want it to end at all. I don’t want to say goodbye to these characters!

  12. Love this story, thank you. I like that Meck and Anders get along so well from the start instead of needing some sort of conflict to make them see that they are good together. I also like the mystery about whether the prince will turn out to be a good/bad guy and will turn out to be the one Vedder is looking for.
