Sword of Runes Chapter 11

As Sir Byron  kissed  Leona’s lips  so red.

He slipped the ring of life on her finger, their agreement to wed.

“Oh! cried out the Faery Queen ” Had I forgot  my ring

I could not use my  magic, for I am not not whole without this  thing”


Restored she rose up and grew in stature and from the ring came light

“Thank  you Bryon,  my  love . I summon  all that  is good and right

To  come now and assist me. To save  not olny Andrew Bold  but the whole universe.

I must keep you safe now my love, while I  put back good and all evil things  reverse.”


Sir Byron tried to argue  but Leona  was too quick for him to move

She made a safe ring in which  to keep her  love, a spell no evil could remove.

Quietening  Byron’s protestations she put him to sleep.

Leona Faery Queen was ready or battle now,  knowing  Bryon was safe in her keep.

Out on the Tor Bold Andrew was fighting  for his life

This was his fate, the reason he had  been born to rid all strife.

Blinded  by blood from a grievious wound, Andrew trusted to his Sword of Runes

His thrusts  and lunges  found their mark  but made no impact The Evil Dark Knight saw victory was to be his soon.


Leona could not believe her eyes. The child that  she had help to raise, lovingly  taught

Was attacking evil  with all his might . The sword that he had forge for good,seemingly counting for nought.

Of  a sudden The Evil Knight of Doom  turned away  from Andrew , his eyes locked fast with Leona’s

“No” said the Evil Knight “you shall not rob  me of what  is mine.” Leona called across the  miles for Susan’s  help  but Lady  Susan was in a coma.

    How well this story weaves a tale. The tension is high. My nerves are taunt. Can’t wait for what comes next. 🙂

    Oh Lordy, I shoulda known – just got the Faery off her derierre and now Susan is in a coma? Bold Andrew’s pit crew just ain’t comin’ thru for him in this fight against The Evil Knight of Doom. And what’s with The Sword of Runes? Andrew spent all that time and energy and poured everything he had into making that sword – when’s it gonna show some respect and start doin’ its part? My foot is starting to tap in annoyance at the showing the forces of Good are exhibiting here.You guys gotta get your manure together here. the forces of Evil ain’t just ginna stand aorund and wait while you get it together. Buck up forces of Good! Get in there and whoop some Dark ass. We’re waiting…

      Yes I know Paul but to be fair. Lady Susan has been in a coma since just before the faery Queen left …. The wolves are on their way to help .. All will be well. Andrew’s sword is working fine but the sneaky snikey Evil Knight of Doom is on a roll right now but all is about to change .All will be resolved but not tonight I need to watch the Good Wife then get some sleep. Be patient and watch out for the wolves. <3. <3. xxx

      Hi Ned sorry to hear that you are in so much pain so glad you can still manage your post I would miss my daily fix of Gigoid. Never leave us you are needed and loved xxx

        Ah, Willow, luv… Pain is a part of everyone’s life; some is mental, some physical, and all a bit of both, I’m afraid… Mine just happens to be imbalance a tad on the physical side, which is annoying, but, not something I can change… (“tad” of course, means, in this instance, “quite a lot”…. you know, the second, sarcastic definition….)

        But, as Epictetus is so bloody fond of reminding me, whenever I think about that, “Happiness and freedom begin with a clear understanding of one principle. Some things in are within your control. And some are not.”

        Oh, by the way, the word “gigoid” is ONLY capitalized when used as the first word in a sentence… My true user name is caps free, as a tip of the cap to internet protocols, (it’s the geek in me….), to wit:

        I am gigoid, the dubious…..

        Luv you, milady… You know, I thought of it the other day… I believe you are the follower who has been with me the longest here at ECR; you certainly are the longest running commenter, save perhaps two other folks, who I haven’t seen in some time… Any who, I’ll be around, and, I assume you will be too, to give us places to go away from our own spaces… from your mind to ours…

        Take care, luv….

        Ned, aka you know who….

        As soon as I agreed the capital on your name I knew it was wrong but because it was predicted text (using my mobile) but hey I am being a slob. I understand pain as you know I like you I am on first name terms with it. I am honoured to be one of your longest followers you are my hero. Be big be brave be gigoid ❤ ❤

    I certainly understand the thing with the texting; I’m still bad at it, and my phone is so smart it lets me talk to it… I still make mistakes when I text…. I know you know, so know you, I know you… how well I know…

    Whatever that means…. 🙂 I DO know about your pain, and you know where to send it when it gets to be too much…. I can help you spread it thinner, if naught else, just by the sharing of it…. you can always use the email I believe I sent, if necessary…. Ta then, I am done for the day for sure, now…. I’ll be back in the morning….
