Second Sun #64


Rallumi did not take her eyes off her Lord, but she was well aware of the blade trembling dangerously at the cusp of her two different futures. She made no move but she saw the muscles in Triu's right wrist tense and knew that one explosive reflex of muscle and sinew and the blade that lay as if sleeping along Triu's thigh would sleep in Urqin's breast.
Out of the corner of his eye, Urqin saw it, too. Saw also Jibrith's hand reach for his own sword.
Urqin spun away and roared his frustration high up into the vaulted ceiling.

    Sounds like a stand-off to me. Pity, I would have liked to see Urqin laid out.

    I did consider killing him off at this point, but you never know he may come in useful against the Fire warriors or whatever they were called (I've been away too long lol)

    Good call, Drew. You mustn’t kill off the really nasty villains, (well not TOO soon) otherwise how can you ramp up the tension really tight?
