Khonour stepped backward through the portal from that place of mist between worlds. All at once he saw the glowing ring of the gateway before him, realised he was back in his kingdom and recognized the danger of this. He glanced back and saw his two old friends standing, their welcoming faces filled with joy at his return. They did not see his drawn sword still burried in the mists before him. 'Draw you weapons! There is...' he shouted to them in warning but his words were cut off... Just figured I'd toss that in to explain the scene a bit.
