Tales Of The Dark Rider – Wounded Heart

THE DARK FOREST OF KERN

IN THE SOUTHERN PLANES OF RHO PLAS

Dark Rider sits alone by a Campfire…

He senses something

“Vengeance then…”

The oh so familiar voice of Elsya suddenly breaks the Night Silence…

He responds without raising his head from the Fire… As he cooks some sort of meat on a stick.

“Justice…” he replies.

Elsya steps into the light…

Dark Rider looks up at her “Hungry?”.

She nods, and sits across from him.

Dark Rider stands, and hands her a stick with some meat on it.

“Thank you” she responds.

Several moments go by as they both eat, and then…

“You know your Son is Following you” Elsya suddenly speaks.

“Theliad…” Dark Rider plainly states as he continues to gaze into the fire.

“Yes… Theliad… He is your Son… Right” she states more than asks.

He looks up at her “I do know that he’s following me…” he replies.

Elsya acknowledges with another nod.

“He’s brought along his Warrior Companion Axxafor–” she starts to say, but Dark Rider interrupts.

“Aye, with Axxafor’s Scent, all of the Southern Valley knows they’re here” Dark Rider smiles at Elsya, and they both begin to laugh.

“Ha Ha Ha!”

Soon all is silent again, as they both look into the Fire.

“I’ve Missed you…” Elsya suddenly says.

With this The Dark Rider looks up at her, and her lavender eyes darken a bit.

“Two years…” he plainly says.

She smiles slightly, and replies “Two years…”.

“How did the Woman you Loved Die…” Elsya suddenly says, and The Dark Rider Freezes, but does not reply.

“Who were you Dark Rider… Before she did” she states more than questions.

FLASHBACK

2 PLUS YEARS EARLIER

THE NORTHERN COUNTRY

HOME TO THE RET’BOR LEGION

PROTECTORS OF THE REGION

Dark Rider rides in with some 30 Ret’Bor Legionnaires, back from their 100 mile sweep…

Lead by their “Fearless Leader”, Ogo’Mon.

Dark Rider rides into the Village, and straight to the Flower Girl where he purchase a Bright Yellow Flower… Never dismounting from his Horse…

He then continues further into the Village to and dismounts at the Blacksmiths…

A Foreign looking, Dark Haired Blacksmith is hard at work.

“Greetings Dark Rider… You’ve come to see Sasha…” he says to Dark Rider, without looking up from his work.

CHING! CHING!

THE PRESENT

“She was the Blacksmith’s Daughter…” The Dark Rider said without looking up from the fire.

“Sasha” he finished.

“She had Dark Hair… And Dark Eyes…” he spoke, but it wasn’t coming easily.

“I understand” Elsya replied.

“It’s time to sleep…” he suddenly says, and stands.

“No problem…” Elsya stands as well, and is about to leave…

“I would rather you stayed…” Dark Rider says, which catches her off guard.

She turns to face him.

“This next Assassin…” Dark Rider starts to say.

“Ah… He’s a tough one, eh” Elsya replies.

Dark Rider smiles slightly “Lets just say, I’m not against “Raising The Odds” that he will fall…” he explains.

Elsya smiles “Ok then… I’ll stay…”.

Dark Rider sets out a blanket for Elsya.
