Welkins was in mid change when he heard his phone go off. It was a text from Reia saying she made it safely. That was good he was a little worried about it. Once he got this professional guild uniform
on, he grabbed his phone and sent a quick text back. "Be safe."
He said. No need to worry her while she was on a mission. Once he was all ready, Welkins grabbed his rifle and new sabers then raced out of his house. This was probably the most he had ever had to run in one day. It didn't matter there was a problem and it needed to be dealt with. It took no longer than five minutes for Welkins to run full speed to the guild office. Once there he slammed his hands on the desk and startled Wendy. "Wendy we have a problem. I need you to grab Amleth and the others and have them meet me in my fathers office now."
Wendy looked Welkins dead in the eyes with confution. "Welkins what has gotten into you. It's past 3 in the morning why are you even awake at this time?"
She said gently, but alarmed. Welkins just shook his head and grunted. "It's a matter of national security. I've spotted a scout. I don't have time to explain just get the guild masters now Wendy!"
He was out of breath and ready to pass out. On top of running around most of the day, now he had to deal with the guild masters at 3am. They were not going to be impressed with him. Wendy just nodded and started to make calls to the other masters and Welkins made his way to his fathers study.
Once there Welkins grabbed a few more chairs and set them up. Kalona was the first to arrive and looked at Welkins. "What the hell? You look like you've seen a ghost."
Kalona stopped and looking in concern. "No, but I may have seen what could be an invasion."
He finished getting the three chairs set up and then sat at his fathers desk. "We'll wait for Felix and Amleth to arrive before I go more into it."
It didn't take to long for the other two to make it. Amleth
seemed tired, but awake enough to hear what was going on. Felix
never liked Welkins so he was just pissed. "What's the meaning of this Welkins. You do know it's past 3 almost 4 now."
Felix said grumpily. Welkins waited for them to be seated before he started. "Okay since we're all here now I think I can relax a bit. I'm sorry to call you three out so late, but we have a problem. I was finally able to get around to doing the watch that Amleth asked me to do a few days ago and I saw a scout that was not our own in the distance. As you three know I can use magic and can enhance my vision with my eyepiece and I'm telling you I know what I saw. It was a man in a uniform I had never seen before."
Kalona and Amleth seemed to get a little uneasy when Welkins was explaining what he saw, but Felix seemed to not really care to much. "Listen Welkins."
Felix started. "I know you may think you saw.."
Felix was immediately interupted by Amleth. "Felix shut the fuck up. You are the lowest rank here and we know damn well what Welkins is capable of. Just because you don't like him doesn't give you the right to start mouthing off or shutting down what he saw. If this is what we think it is then we have a really big problem."
Amleth really liked Welkins and would always take his side. Even though he was superior to Welkins, he still treated him as an equal. He knew that what Welkins was capable of and could trust him with his life. For this reason Felix didn't like him. "Okay fine."
Was all he was able to manage. Amleth stared down Felix then looked back at Welkins. "I'm sorry Welkins please continue."
Welkins smiled at Amleth knowing he was his favorite guild master. He was even told that he could take Felix's job if he ever wanted. Again another reason why Felix didn't like Welkins. "Thank you master Amleth. Now as I was saying I think we need to look farther into this or at least have someone on a night watch from now on. We would need four of us to cover all of Galia. I don't know if you guys have any idea's on who, but I will gladly be one of them."
He smiled then looked at the other three. Kalona had been silent this whole time and finally spoke up. "Well I agree with both Amleth and Welkins on this one. I think we do need to take this seariously and place a few hunters on watch at night. Welkins you do enough as it is I think you need to get some rest now and again. You can't save anyone if you are tired. I know your father would tell you the same."
Welkins knew he would say that so all he did was nod.
Felix seemed to just be annoyed at this time, but saw how the others were so he puckered up. "Alright well I think that we should hold a meeting with all the hunters and teachers tomorrow and see what they thing. We have a few on missions right now, but I'm sure there's still enough. Welkins I know you were just told not to worry about any of this, but if no one will stay up then we might need to take you up on your offer."
Welkins nodded again knowing that Felix was only being nice to him now because Amleth got onto him. "Alright well we will reconvean tomorrow. Welkins I want you in your fathers chair tomorrow for the meeting. You saw everything so we are going to need you to explain it again to everyone else."
Amleth said and with that got up and wished everyone goodnight. It was to be a long day tomorrow and they needed some sleep. Felix left right after Amleth and gave Welkins the stink eye. Kalona stayed back with Welkins for a bit and talked to him. "I really hope that it's nothing. We can't afford to get into this war."
He said gently. "I know Kalona, but if we do then we'll need everone's help."
Welkins said then started to clean up. Kalona just smiled then said goodnight.
