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.

King Arnie recognized Duggla’s discordant croaking. “Let her in,” he sighed.

The flubberous green mass of anger burst through the doorway, stumbling to a stop at the King’s feet.
