Suqqu steeled her nerves, stopped crying and dried her eyes, she would grieve for her protector later. She first had to avenge his murder, all the two of them ever did was what the leader of their country had asked them to do. And after everything they did for him, they were betrayed. And for what reason? she wondered; I’ll be sure to ask him after I poison him, maybe let him see someone he loves die, see how he likes it.

She crept along the branches jumping from tree to tree as she made her way to the where the Crowmen were celebrating their bounty and successful hunt. Perched up on the branch above them, she kept her emotions in check, stifling her tears as she heard them say all the things about the human who had saved her life and kept her safe all these years. No, he was a good man, and I’m going to make you pay for what you did to him. Good thing for her the Pandor are only 3 inches tall and no one had ever known that she was partners with Racker, being so tiny she could hide anywhere, but how she would miss hiding in Racker’s shirt pocket, it made her feel so safe, like nothing in the world could ever harm her.

Standing on the branch a few feet above them, she stayed silent as she waited three hours until the drunken partying of the Crowmen died down, patience was definitely a virtue. Two of her enemy lay down to sleep, and then she began her move. In the dim light of their campfire, she could see that one of them was standing on watch. From her pouch she gathered the powder and materials necessary and she prepared her spell, and as soon as it was ready the white mist came out of her fingers and her adversary fell to the ground unconscious.

Suqqu squinted her eyes and tilted her ear towards the sleeping Crowmen and waited a minute to ensure the others were not woken by her spell. When she was satisfied they weren't she climbed down the tree and from her little pouch she took out some powder and one by one sprinkled it on to the lips of the sleeping Crowmen.

In less than a minute all three of them went into convulsions that lasted several minutes until they stopped moving. With a little smirk on her face, Suqqu once again climbed into the trees, this was a safest place for her to travel until she gets to bring her vengeance on to the man who ordered her savior's death.

She got high enough in the tree to settle down on a branch, pressing her back to the tree. With several more days of travel to the capital of Genuous, her tiny legs simply didn’t cover the same amount of ground as Racker’s did, a good reason for a three-inch-tall Pandor to have a human as a friend. It was now time to grieve for her human protector, she wrapped her arms around her legs as she pulled her knees to her chest, buried her face in her arms and let the tears flow unchecked. Suqqu was tempted to let out the Pandor death shriek of mourning, but there could be any number of predators lurking by and she would be an easy meal.

Suqqu let everything out over several hours, all the while vowing she would avenge what her leader did. Since he did not know that Racker had a Pandor as a partner, coupled with how tiny she is, she figured she would have no problem getting close enough to him.
