The wind breezed through her green hair and the rocky ground crunched from beneath her heavy metal boots. Her armour clanked against her as she walked forwards and a bloody battle axe was in her gauntlet covered hand. Bodies of soldiers surrounded her and she could see them everywhere she went. Seeing fallen comrades made her want to curl up into a ball and cry, but she gritted her teeth and continued onwards.
Her eyes looked up and narrowed when she heard the footsteps. Another woman who was much older than her stood there, a malicious smirk on her lips. She had wavy dark brown hair and scarlet red eyes, and wore robes that were a little too exposed for what they were meant to be. “Do you admit defeat?” She asked the other woman.
The axe wielding girl scowled. “Never. I will never admit defeat. Especially to one such as you.”
The older woman smirked. “Then let me end your life right now.” She lifted up her sword which had sharp, jagged edges to it and stood in a battle stance.
The younger girl’s lips set into a thin line and she held her battle axe up. “Not if I do it first.” And with that, she charged at the white haired woman.
Sorry for so much inactivity, I’ve been busy for so many reasons and I’ll probably get even busier, but I’ll try my best to post things as often as I can! ^_^
As Aurelia’s sword struck down the last of her enemies, she let out a shaky breath and pulled her blade out.
The thundering sounds of hooves stopped as Castor skidded to a halt in the middle of the bridle path, tossing his head and neighing loudly. Aurelia panted as she held onto the reins of her stallion tightly, her face flushed red from the exertion of riding and the wind battering against her skin. Her lips were cracked from all the dryness and her hair, loose and wild, was blown back in a windswept look. Aurelia rubbed at her eyes, getting rid of all the moisture that had gathered in there. She caught her breath back and looked up at her surroundings.
Aurelia and Castor had stopped on a stone bridge connecting from one side of the river to the other side. Waterfalls sprang out from cracks in the cliffs above them and flowed all the way down into the river. The river below them was streaming all the way to the bank and from there Aurelia could see the stone steps travelling upwards, passing through the large arch that towered over them. She eyed the ruins in front of her carefully; she could see the remnants of ancient pillars and walls. “Looks like we’re at the Synagogue Of Silence, Castor.” She spoke to her horse, reaching down to stroke his flank. “How about a little adventure?”
Castor whinnied in agreement and Aurelia nodded. “I agree. I’m curious about what’s up there too. Let’s take a look then, shall we?”
Another neigh of agreement. Aurelia squeezed her thighs together and urged her stallion into a gentle gallop. Soft hoofbeats sounding on grass turned into harsh thundering hoof noises as Castor moved off the bridge and onto the stony ground before the archer and the horse began the long trip up the steps to the Synagogue of Silence.
As exams approach, the shorter my writing gets. Mind you, I’m getting really into this flash fiction writing, it’s good when you don’t have much spare time ^_^
