We exchanged blows, hot and furious, and from the start I knew I was heavily outmatched. Our blades sounded together with a great reverberation that echoed against the walls around us, and the crowd that circled was hardly a footnote in my mind. There was only him, and I had to stab him, as quickly […]

The Dragon, Bard, and Physician

Images bubble up, unbidden. I can hardly stop them, but when they come I am attentive and tense. Time moves, or it doesn’t move, I no longer know… but I crave these short bursts of light. Sound. Voices…   “You should of had breakfast with me. The mouthful a woman gets in prison is much, […]

From the Start

We moved together like two mirrors facing each other on the dance floor, gliding like thin little swans on two straight legs. It was beautiful, I suppose, to be watching us – nobles, young, obviously in love. Seeing it now it’s like something out of a fairy tale. Her blonde hair cascaded behind her and […]

Southbound Letters

Three of each and not a one more handsome than I, right? But in honesty, it calms my heart hearing about the Knights traveling with you. While I do not fear Farin responding to the assassination of one of their baron’s brothers, I do fear whatever group assassinated him attacking you and making it seem […]

When the Music’s Over

I promised you I would try, did I not? Here is proof; a written letter! Quite beyond my habits usually – thus, let it be the ultimate reflection of my undying love to you. After all, who needs a ring, a hero, or a muscular Knight when they have letter writer!   Sorry, love, I […]

Turn the Page

They rushed through the woods, black and gold clothing upon a dark green mosaic of plants and underbrush. Casimir went left, and Joseph turned right, both men panting heavily but unfaltering. Ahead of them a black shape pierced the growth, faster and faster.   The men burst into a clearing, each on opposite sides of […]

When the Sun Goes Down

“We’ve been sittin’ out ‘ere all Arien night, Cas. Ain’t caught a glimpse o’ nothin’ ‘cept frostbite!”   Joseph sat on the cold stone floor of the cave, his head nestled in his hands. Before him was a jagged, old knife and a piece of malformed wood that was supposed to be a horse. It looked […]

It never comes oft; Only in waves and crashes. Sometimes I lie in bed, Only to think of your ashes. It’s been many years now, And I still recall your touch The taste of you in the air The feel of my fingers in your hair…   Casimir Aldair slapped the book away, his shoulders […]

A Day in the Life (Part I)

“We will commune soon that you might continue your path back to spiritual rightness and you can then offload some of these feelings you have been carrying around. I suggest writing a diary of your daily experiences that I can better understand your perspective.   It is perhaps hard to imagine, but the Holy Inquisition cares deeply for those […]

Gold Lion

Year 362 SC, Belasdes, Quintilis.   Still no closer to finding him. They have all but disappeared – no more attacks under the false facade of banditry, no more villages mysteriously burnt to the ground in a single night, and no more odd nightmares… aside from the usual.   Was it all just a dream?
