Chapter 2: The Trap Is Set
Elizabeth stood in the clearing, frozen in fear. She could run no further as the bandits had outflanked her. They closed in from every direction chuckling under their breath.
Elizabeth's hand slid down to her waist where a long thin dagger was resting against her soft skin. Waiting to be released on one of the five bandits surrounding her. She knew who needed to die in order for her to survive. She had to kill the leader.
But all the bandits looked the same. Big, harry, and stupid. All but one of the bandits had a rusted broadsword in their right hand. The fifth bandit bore a long handled battleaxe.
“Well now,” said the man with the axe in a rough voice. “You've had your fun, but we really must be going.”
Elizabeth laughed desperately. “You would only kill me, why should I listen to you?”
“Well the way I see it you have three options,” the man spoke. His voice had shifted slightly into a sinister overtone. “You can run, and die. We can leave you with the shifter and he'll kill you...”
“Or I can come with you and die!” Elizabeth screamed.
“You would rather be destroyed by a monster?” the man questioned. “You heard the explosion you know what is on it's way, thanks to your cries for help. The damned have a thirst for blood that is never ending, and I hear they enjoy nothing more than a slow and painful death.”
Elizabeth looked around her wildly, her eyes finally meeting the blue sky. Would it be the last time she saw the sky? Would this mean the end.
As she continued to stare a black figure suddenly became apparent, a deep blue light centered at it's head.
She smiled softly at her brothers. “He's here,” she said nervously. “Be ready my friends...”
