An Unbreakable Force
"I can't wait to see her again," Rokai says to Daeden.
Daeden wakes up.
"Huh?" He says as he tries to figure out what's going on. "Are we almost there?" He asks.
"Nope," Rokai says. "Home is still a ways away."
"Ah!" Daeden shoves his face into his arm.
"These Jeckle Horses can only go so fast," Rokai says. "And they have to pull this wagon with us in it. Not an easy task. Especially, since you ate all those puffs at our dinner stop."
"Ah!" Daeden yells out again.
The wagon stops. Rokai looks ahead at the road to see a few shadowy figures moving in the dark.
"Hello?" Rokai says.
He throws on a cloth to cover his face and steps onto the road.
"Who is there?!" He yells.
"Quiet boy. You wouldn't want to wake your tired friend, now would we?" A deep voice says from the dark.
Rokai hears Daeden snoring in the wagon.
A spark of fire lights up to show, what looks like to be assassins standing in the road. Rokai steps back.
"What do you want!?" Rokai yells out.
"I was given orders from the princess to kill you. Pig! What? You didn't think that all those crimes wouldn't end in consequences?" The man says.
The man chuckles.
"You are funny," the man says.
"How did you find me?" Rokai says.
"Why would I tell you that boy?" The man says.
Rokai expels a great amount of fire onto the road to keep them from getting close.
"I will kill you if I have to." Rokai says.
The man chuckles. He takes a fighting stance and blasts fire out of his hands.
