Glad you could join us for the next courageous episode of Elliot’s Adventures. If you’re new here, you can catch up by returning to the beginning, and reading really fast…
Captain McWatt of the Light of Day Aero Squadron struck and tore, shredded and tossed every Marauder within his reach. Sirehta’s brothers turned on their captors with unleashed hatred.
The sergeant ducked away from the captain’s talons, clamping down on Sirehta’s neck to drag him toward the field, back to his commander. But Sirehta, with a twisting wrench of his body, jerked free to plunge his fangs through his assailant’s throat.
“Brothers, hold!” he yelled over the Marauders’ screaming as more members of the Aero Squadron descended upon them. “Did the King send you?” he called to the Captain.
“Yes. We are to clear the way for your escape.”
Looking first to his kin, Sirehta shook his head. “We will follow you back into battle and finish this.”
“Well, Princess, shall I address you as ‘your Supremacy’?” Elliot asked with a grin. The morning warmth had welcomed them on a long walk after breakfast in the bower.
Giggling, Cassandra tossed her head. “I was thinking, ‘your Elegance’ would do.”
“Would you settle for, ‘my only love’?”
“Oh, Elliot, that’s all I could ever want. I don’t know anything about being a princess, much less a queen. How am I supposed to do this?”
“Let’s wait till the war is over and Queen Lilian tells King Arnie you’re his daughter. Then, whatever you decide to do, we’ll do it together.”
She pressed against his chest. “Yes, my only love. Together.”
The kiss they shared eclipsed the rustling of the leaves just off the path.
