Simon Westerby stood on the balcony looking out over the city as he pondered what his next step was going to be. He had been rejected by the council to be governor of the Emali province. He would not accept that. The council overrode his right as ruler and he would not stand for it. He called for several rangers to go out into town and tell the people there would be a town meeting in the city square the day after tomorrow and everyone was expected be there. He dispatched them right away and they left promptly. Simon left the balcony and went back to his study in the city center building. The building is where the governor of Emali stayed and governed the province.
Simon knew he had several things to do. He was mad at the council for overriding his right to be ruler and something needed to be done about it. But what, he thought, what could be done? I need to get most of the people on my side first. The speech in two days will be written for that purpose.
A ranger by the name of Timons came into the room to talk to Simon. “Timons, you are my right hand man correct? I can trust you with anything correct?” Timons nodded and said “Yes, sir!”
“I am going to write a speech and give it at the town meeting in a few days. I want you to find Jorde and have him come here. I want to talk to him about doing a few things. I am going to have him take care of the counsel, and get them to say publicly that I am the governor of Emali. I want you by my side. There could be big rewards in it for you if you stick by me. I trust very few people, but I trust you. Thank you, that will be all.” Simon sat down to write his speech, when he was done, he got up and walked back and forth thinking about the speech making certain modifications to it here and there. Simon sat down. A plan is coming together, I think I can make it work.
About the Author
Growing up all over the United States, all in the northern states have given me a great knowledge of different climates. I grew up traveling all over the U.S. also Canada and Mexico. Right before I turned nineteen I joined the Navy. I was stationed in Japan and traveled all over the Asia and the Middle East. Once I was discharged from the Navy, I returned home and and had a few odds and end jobs here and there. Five years after returning home from the Navy, I met what was at the time, my greatest challenge ever, Marriage. Turns out now it was really not a challenge, but one of the easiest decisions I made. Little did I know at the time, that my greatest but most rewarding challenge was to come ten years later. Ten years after I was married, our first child was born. I thought being married was a life changing, but having a child is, a hundred times more. A month before my son was born, I quit my job. It was decided I would become a SAHD (Stay at Home Dad). This provided me with many opportunities to do a few things I have wanted to do. Six months after my son was born I enrolled in college. A few years later, I received my degree in Parks and Recreational Management. To this day, I am a stay at home dad to a my two kids. All my life I have been a outdoor person. I love camping, hiking, canoeing and whatever else I can do outdoors. I am big on environmental education and making people aware of the impacts of our decisions on the environment. I am not a Tree Hugger by any means, but I do believe that we do not need to uselessly waste our resources and we need to cut back on what we use. You will see, in my books, my love for the outdoors, different environments, cultures, and many things that I have experienced. I have also incorporated many things I have an interest in, Celtic gods, Dryads, and science. Thank-you for purchasing my book. I am sure there is a character in the books that everyone can relate too, or maybe you can relate to multiple different characters in the books. I encourage you to read the books and tell me what you think. Please visit my website at www.mrkuhn.net
