Dawn was just breaking, but the newly risen sun had sent waves of scorching heat all over the Desert of Ante- much to the displeasure of the line of Red Army travelling across the horizon.
Many of the troops were scowling, while some whispered silent complaints and grumbles. Not surprisingly though, the one who showed the most displeasure was their commander- Vorpal Slayer. It wasn't that the young leader took the heat worse than his men, he merely did not conceal his feelings enough, and he saw no reason to do so.
Several of the braver soldiers who actually dared to question the Red Queen had tried to suggest other alternatives, all of which were bluntly declined by the latter. Queen Cassandra had stated that they would not be riding the Jubjub birds, as those large, brightly colored avians are likely to attract attention, while obstinately rejecting the idea of borrowing some ships from the White Queen to travel through the Blitz Sea from the ports of Celes. "I will NEVER ask any favour- or be indebted- to that upstart sister of mine!" she had said.
"I can't believe this! Of all the routes we could have taken, she just HAD to sent us through the worst one!" the Dark Avenger complained with a hoarse whisper to his mount, the Bandersnatch. The animal in question just gave a soft growl in acknowledgement, although it neither agreed nor care. The journey had lasted for several hours by now, but the soldiers are not anywhere near their destination. Either these people have to learn to adapt to the heat of the desert, or tire themselves by complaining for another 24 hours or so. For the frumious Bandersnatch, it does not matter eitherway.
((I planned to wait for Mira's response before RP-ing as Vorpal again, but until she actually shows sign of activity here, I'll just consider her 'gone')
(Hmm, which reminds me, I wonder when can I post Aidan... But I guess I'll have to decide what role will he playing first)
