The Libertad Chronicles: Book one, Chapter one, Part three

The Shadow Warrior ran swiftly and Gwendolyn couldn't stand up. Her leg felt like it was on fire and she knew that at any moment she would again be staring into the deep nothingness of that face. The Shadow Warrior drew his sharp, shrewd dagger and drew himself to his full height, Jesus Protect me she prayed silently. The dagger came down like a falcon but Gwendolyn couldn't move she closed her eyes, expecting that it would be all over the dagger shone in the moonlight, and then it stopped. Gwendolyn opened her eyes she was still in the forest. Gwendolyn saw the Shadow Warrior shrinking back in terror, she wondered what he was hiding from. She looked to her right, there was a young girl around ten years old but tall for her age, around her waist was a sword and on her back a bow and a quiver of arrows. She was saying something, Gwendolyn couldn't understand the words. Everything seemed muddled up and spinning, like a child's top that has been wound up and released. Then, she saw blackness.

"What do you mean you didn't kill them?" shrieked Lynnette "They are a threat to The Evil One's plans!". "They are protected by a higher power. We can hardly get within two yards of them." replied a hollow voice that made you just think of evil when you heard it. "I don't care! I want them dead!" screamed Lynnette "If you do not kill them soon I--" "But we can't." interrupted the Shadow Warrior. Lynnette mumbled a spell under her breath. The Shadow Warrior turned to dust! "Those christians don't know who they're dealing with." she muttered.

When Gwendolyn awoke she found herself in a small hut with the girl sitting next to her. "Finally! I thought you'd never wake up!" she said "You took a bad blow to your head....". Gwendolyn was confused, "Who are you?" she asked the girl quickly responded "Oh my! I'm so sorry I didn't tell you earlier! My name is Isoka.". "What happened to my--" a sound came from behind the door, "Is she awake yet?", "Guess that answers my question." she said to herself.
