8 Sentences from: Choices

Thank you for stopping by. A brief blurb about the story: A traitor hides within a group of women and children Ranger Thaenad rescues from the clutches of enemy forces. He must decide if he is willing to pay the greatest price to ensure the safety of those he came to help. The snippet this week immediately follows last week’s post. Hope you enjoy.

choices3The smoke, billowing further down the hill, told of the tragic end for many other Kalieri. Twinges of guilt assaulted him for rejoicing in Gwenneth’s survival. Again he wondered how the Halurdow sustained their hate, and why they thought burning living Kalieri would diminish the Twin Gods’ power?

Frequent enemy patrols had slowed his progress for the past two candle-marks. The journey would be for naught if he led the Dark God’s followers to those he sought to help. A horseshoe struck stone nearby, followed by the sound of muffled voices. Thaenad shifted further beneath the dense thicket of koblisk bushes, ignoring the pricks of sharp thorns. He quieted his breathing when the sounds of mounted men moved nearer.
