Pearl and Quasit #73


Baron Nicaise walked his castle's causeway. Pacing actually. Pacing in the pouring rain, oblivious to the soaking. Waiting. For you see, on this night, he'd hired another sorcerer. But no matter how many sorcerers he hired, magic didn't seem to be the answer.

Pearl struck the Juadzai in the hamstring, and his leg buckled at the knee. He swung his axe wildly. Pearl exploited the opening, bringing her full weight upon his neck. The beast went limp. The BQSBots ended the simulation.

Baron Nicaise had three wives. Each more beautiful than the last. But each had only given him sons.
