THE SOUTH LANDS
Dark Rider continues to search the forest for the Assassin that Slayed Largoth… (If You Missed The Last TDR, You Can Check it out Here Tales Of The Dark Rider – Retribution)
“IF YOU’RE SO GOOD AT WHAT YOU DO VILLAIN!! THAN FACE ME!!” Dark Rider yells out into the trees surrounding him.
“OR ARE YOU JUST GOING TO KILL THE WEAKEST OF US ONE AT A TIME!! LIKE A COWARD!!” he finishes.
Meanwhile Elsya and Theliad have removed the poison from Axxafor’s back.
“I’m going after My Father…” Theliad says “You take care of Axxafor” he then runs into the Southern Forest.
“CHING CHING CHING!!” the sounds of Dark Rider’s and The Assassin’s Weapons meeting as they battle.
They than stand apart.
“YOU’RE NOT BAD FOR A MERCENARY!!” bellows the Assassin.
“CHING CHING CHING!!”
“THAT’S WHAT YOU ARE RIGHT??!!” he continues to speak loudly at Dark Rider as they begin to fight again.
“CHING CHING CHING!!”
“OR WAS IT A RANGER??!!”
Suddenly from no where four arrows strike the Assassins outfit, pinning him to a nearby tree.
“FOOMP! FOOMP! FOOMP! FOOMP!”
“And what’s wrong with being a Ranger” speaks Theliad as he steps forward into the patch where they’re fighting… His Wolf at his side, and Bow Drawn.
“STAY BACK THELIAD” Dark Rider yells, and at that moment, once again in a puff of smoke, the Assassin Disappears.
Dark Rider and Theliad position their selves back to back peering into the forest around them, but all they can do is listen to the Assassin continuing to yell.
“YOU’RE NOT A MERCENARY, NOR A RANGER, ARE YOU DARK RIDER!!” he yells, but Dark Rider and Theliad are unable to tell where it is coming from.
“NO… YOU’RE A HERO!!” suddenly he appears and is about to throw two poisoned daggers at Theliad, when The Dark Rider jumps in front to take the hits.
“GLARK!!” he grabs his throat, and falls to the ground… Dead.
From out of the wood steps Iloh “Hello Boys”.
And right behind her is Ukorian carrying a Large Chest (Iloh and Ukorian were introduced way back here Dark Rider – Shores of Evalon).
Dark Rider slaps Theliad on the shoulder, and approaches Iloh “I must say you have good timing…” the two of them do an arm embrace.
“Eh, I still owed you one for saven me from that Demon in Wogtay’s battle two years ago (Dark Rider saved Iloh Here Dark Rider – Man Down).
Ukorian sets down his Chest, and Dark Rider and he also shake arms.
“Good to see you Ukorian…” says Dark Rider, as he looks down at the Chest.
“What have you here?” he asks Ukorian.
“A Gift for you” with this Ukorian opens the Chest, and the Scarlet Bandit’s Head is in it.
“You aren’t the only one whose been out Avenging Em’s and Largoth.
Dark Rider smiles slightly.
