Sableana gazed intently into The Orb of the Fates. She was waiting for the mists of fate to dissipate and reveal the source of her fear. Only moments before Sableana had been hit with a sudden wave of terror, because her master, the tribe mystic, was gone to assist a fellow mystic in another tribe. Sableana hesitantly approached the orb, because she was not yet trained in how to use it. Also it could turn on the one who tried to summon forth its awesome power, but she knew that she must. The mist cleared and Sableana fell to her knees stunned by the horror that lay before her. The Slayers had returned. Her master’s worst fears had been realized they had returned.
