Time stopped in the beat before the gasp.

King Arnie’s call to assemble shook the woods as the few remaining reds scattered to the north with the wolves ripping at their heels. The entanglement of Marauders watched their foes’ run, first with cautious recoiling, then with a surging attack on the retreating Knights of Service.

Immediately, flapping, biting rain pelted their eyes with relentless teeth, tearing at their scales, spilling their cold, black blood.

“What are those things?” Barry’s question quaked with fear.

Trevor only shook his head, eyes round in terror.

“Knights of Service! Attend to me!” King Arnie commanded. “Do not fear the Vamphibians. Our ancient, nearly forgotten allies of the Kingdom of Bog have answered our call for help. This battle will be their victory. We must press on to join our brother Knights fighting against even greater odds than these to protect Bog’s citizens in the north. Onward!”

To be continued. . .
