Sword of Runes Chapter 13

So quietly the seconds passed, Leona fought to open her eyes.

She lay crumpled in a heap upon the damp grass. Silence except for her sighs.

Andrew stood with mouth agape horrified at what he saw.

The Evil Knight of Doom had attacked his Faery Queen and left her at hell’s door.

On a sudden Andrew rushed forward and smite the Evil Knight a blow.

This maddened the Evil Knight and his demon hoards below.

Too late, too late you turn young man too late you find your fire.

Forget her now, your Faery Queen. My minions will build for her a funeral pyer.

Andrew’s rage was now full thrust and his eyes were bright with tears.

He lunged and   his sword found it’s mark. He felt lead by the knowledge of years.

The demon hoards  now  rose up as of one desire

To save  their Demon Lord and to snuff out  for good young Andrew’s fire!

The scene was one of horror

Would Andrew and Leona ever see a tomorrow.

The demon hoards advanced and the Evil Knight of Doom

Wiping  the blood from his chest,smiled as he raised his sword under the moon.

Fearing all was lost Bold Andrew  swore to die with honor

He wanted his  mother to be proud, not to bring shame upon her.

The noise  was thunderous, and the ground shook, the sky above the Tor was black

 Andrew  thought Leona was  dead and he was soon to follow on that track!

Just then Susan arrived on the Tor with the  glorious wolves at her back!

    Leaves it a bit late to get exicted, this Andrew does. Now he’s depending on others to pull his ass out of the fire, so to speak. Lord Thunderin’ – you’da thought he’d be a bit more on top of it before the roof fell in wouldn’tcha?
