Result of the Quickwrite

Oh hey!
Not only did the quickwrite here go into Johnny's contest, but it came out as FIRST PLACE! Thanks so much, Johnny; and great job everybody - I read through all the stories, and I don't know how I came into first! Today's post also honors the next segment of SKYWAY LIGHT, the title of my quickwrite series! :) Enjoy!

“STOP THIS INSTANT!” I heard the same patter of footsteps towards me, just many years back. Turning around, I lost track of where my father had fled. I wielded the glistening blade and the dust on it seemed to fly off as I held it upright. I swept the blade in front of me, creating a radius of space between me and the Armada. I turned a circle doing the same action, creating a 30 square foot circle around myself. Thanks to peripheral vision, I saw one soldier draw a pistol. I bit my lower lip and took a single step in my circle, knocking the pistol out of the soldier's grip.
“What, may I ask, brings the party? Did I miss the memo?” I seemed to squeak, a ball of quick-talking and what felt like fire burning in the back of my head. “And I do believe this is my sword that I just reclaimed, thanks.” The soldier growled, and I lunged forward.


“Extraordinary.” Lafitte whispered, patting my shoulder. I regained awareness to see a mess of bones before me, the fog taking all other things out of sight. There was a 30-square-foot circle around me, mind the part where Morgan trudged through the bones to get to me. In the misty distance, I could see the violet-orange tinge of the Skyway floating calmly above the edge of the ship.
“How far are we from the barge?” I whispered, as to not disturb the silent day. I glanced down at my free (sword-less) hand and studied its scabs and blisters. Morgan took my notion and handed me my scabbard and sling.
“The barge is a ship, too. It be close-by, or on the other side o' the Spiral. Some say it doesn't even end there, that there's more...not that we'd be botherin' to look.” One day, I promised myself, I will look there, and map everything seen.

Miscellaneous Updates:
  • due to the plot creation, Destiny does not have a last name anymore
Also, as a result of getting first (1-3 places got this prize), I won 5,000 Crowns! I need to make a decision, quick! Either:
Spend it on myself so I can get henchmen to help me with battling Volkir RimeAxe, so I can get Snow Angel, OR save it for a possible blogoversary contest. Comment with any (comments...and) opinions! ^.^

Keep Traveling!

  2. I would use it on yourself. Henchmen are very useful especially when you get to some of those harder bosses in Zafaria! Or maybe just buy a couple of Hydra Hoards!
