CHAPTER TWO (Part One); A New Home

Far to the North East of Maelem, in the Keep of Hamke

Baron Braug sits upon his thrown, the room glowing amber with the light of his great fire… Baron Braug is a large man, perhaps six foot four, weighing close to two hundred and forty pounds… Upon his face is a blond, red, grizzled beard… His eyes a light brown. He isn’t all that handsome to look at, but he’s never short on maidens. If they wish to live that is.

Suddenly a thin, sharply bearded fellow, dressed in all black, flings into the room, and to his lords side, with much expediency. In his trembling hands, a scroll… But he does not speak.

“Speak…” issues the Baron.

“It is not good news my lord, as Maelem’s Armies, lead of course by Sir Tyrian, have defeated the last stand of Lord Brirocks Northern Army…”

“Hmm…” the lord mustard.

“The Great Wars are over my lord… We are… Defeated”.

Lord Braug stands and snatches the scroll from Ryme, his Advisor’s, hands.

He hands it back to him and stolls infront of the Great Fire Place. Oh how the fire roared.

“Fetch my sons…”. Ryme quickly departs.

“So be it…”

The next day is bright, and beautiful, especially in the depths of the Corian Forest, just outside Maelem’s city walls…

Where a girl, some twenty three years in age, with long red hair, and startling green eyes, stands blind folded in a patch of open wood surrounded by trees, with a short bow, fully drawn, in her hands.

“Throw it…” she says with a slight smile.

Behind her stands Tyrion, also with a bow at his side, this one a Long Bow. In his hand he holds several small stones.

“As you wish fare Jade…” with this, he throws one of the stones at a distant tree “SMACK!”, and as soon as it hits Jade turns and releases “THUUUM”.

“THUNGG!!” the arrow strikes the tree quite closely to where the stone hit.

“Another!” she says gleefully, as Tyrion obliges her.

“SMACK!” “THUNGG!!” she does it again. This goes on for several minutes.

“You are quite good my lady…” Tyrion touches Jade’s shoulder.

“You have no idea…” she playfully replies.

Suddenly there is a “CRACKK” in the distance, and all seems to slow down, as Jade turns and draws back her bow…

It is a deer…

Still blindfolded, “THUUUM” she releases.

The shaft shoots through the air, and just as it is about to strike the deer, another arrow strikes the first, and snaps it “SNAP!”, both fall to the ground.

Jade tears the blindfold off only to see the deer run off, then looks back at Tyrion whose bow is drawn, as he has just shot.

“Gasp” tears come to Jade’s eyes. “It’s okay Jade… It got away…” with this she falls into Tyrions arms. “I’m so glad you’re home”.

THIS IS THE END OF CHAPTER TWO (PART ONE)

One Knight (Chapter One) – Homecoming

ONE KNIGHT

A Novel

by DarkJade (Written In 2011)

CHAPTER ONE; Homecoming

As the Knights of Maelem entered the city walls, they were greeted by wives, family and friends.

Tyrion, who lived inside the castle walls with his wife of one year, Jade, waved and nodded to the people of Maelem, but inside he ached to see her.

As he reached the castle he dismounted from his dark chestnut steed, Kalos, removed his great gauntlets, and handed them to his squire, Enre.

Making his way down the great hall, the knights on guard would nod, and he in turn would glance their way and acknowledge them. Tyrion himself was a good sized man, six feet three in height, weighing perhaps in the two hundred twenty pound range, he was strong, and walked with a great deal of confidence. His Eyes dark blue, and hair a medium length, fairly wavy and dark brown in color.

Inside the Royal Chamber, King Maelem sits upon his throne clutching with an old and weathered hand the glowing blue crystal attached to a silver chain around his neck.

“We did not need you after all my sweet…” he mumbled. The Kings Royal Guard acted as though they did not notice, but they did. When Tyrion at last entered through the Royal Chambers great doors, the King tucked the necklace underneath his shirt, and motioned for his guard to leave, and so they did. Tyrion went to bow, but King Maelem stood and grabbed both of Tyrion’s arms instead.

“You should be with your young wife my son…” he smiled at Tyrion.

“It’s good to see you my King…”

“As it is to see you…”. “Now make your way to your wife, we shall talk more tomorrow night at the celebration… As I have much to say”.

With this Tyrion nods, turns and goes.

Prologue;

In a time of  Knights, Kings and Dragons… Our story takes place in the Kingdom of Maelem. Long Ruled by King Maelem himself, though his Wife has passed, and she had bore no children, he always felt that the Leader of his Armies, the Knight Tyrion, was as close to a Son as any man of non-royal blood could be.

Over the last fifteen years, Tyrion has lead his Kings Knights into battle with many a Fine Warlord, and in all cases, has been victorious.

Now as the King nears the final years of his life, he has but one gift he wishes to bestow upon Tyrion and his new Wife. But will it come too late.

(When You Wish Upon A Star)

by Leigh Harline

When you wish upon a star
Makes no difference who you are
Anything your heart desires
Will come to you.

If your heart is in your dream
No request is too extreme
When you wish upon a star
As dreamers do.

Fate is kind
She brings to those who love
The sweet fulfillment of
Their secret longing

Like a bolt out of the blue
Fate steps in and sees you through.
When you wish upon a star
Your dreams come true

When a star is born
They possess a gift or two.
One of them is this
They have the power to make a wish come true.

When you wish upon a star
Makes no difference who you are
Anything your heart desires
Will come to you,

If your heart is in your dream
No request is too extreme
When you wish upon a star
As dreamers do.

Fate is kind
She brings to those who love
The sweet fulfillment of
Their secret longing.

Like a bolt out of the blue
Fate steps in and sees you through.
When you wish upon a star
Your dreams come true.

Joy… Troubled

Hope… Doubt

Fear… Boldness

Love… Loss

Rain… Sunlight

Run… Walk

Terror… Exuberance

Triumph… Fallen

Night… Day

Truth… Lies

Resentment… Forgiveness

==================

Balance in all things

Love yourself

Ask for help if you need it

Let it go… Whatever it is that is burdening you

Let it go…

And enjoy the Clouds

And the Sky

And the Cold of the Winter

And the Heat of the Summer

My Review of “Captain America: The Winter Soldier”

1705780-captain_america_3Captain America; Let me start by saying, Captain America was my Favorite Super Hero growing up… Him, and The Flash. So when The “Captain America: First Avenger” came out a few years ago (There’s A Review Of That One On This Site Somewhere As Well), I was really looking forward to it. Especially since I really like the Actor who played (Plays) him, Chris Evans. That said, I wasn’t all that thrilled with that movie. Many liked it, but for some reason it didn’t hit home with me. However, I did like the way Captain America was later portrayed in “The Avengers”.

Captain-America-The-Winter-Soldier-Captain-America-and-BatrocStory;  The Story is good. I don’t want to give away more than that. This isn’t ‘just’ an Action Film, there are hints of mystery involved.

Directing; At the beginning, I felt that the Directing was a bit dry… But then it picked up, and I thought they…
