EXCERPT

A shadow disengaged from a tree and moved into the twilight. It was a hooded man in black, one of the three that were chasing him. In his hand glinted a curved sword. Jack turned to run but froze when the second hunter approached from the other side of the clearing. He too held a curved blade. Both men trained on him, stalking him.

"What do you want from me?" Jack cried out.

Silence filled the forest.

The black clad hunters continued to advance from both sides through the underbrush. When they came to the grass of bluebells, they entered without hesitation and raised their swords in unison.

A strange melody danced up from their knees as they moved to pin him in. Fear blinded Jack's mind as he scooted to the center of the glade. The taste of bile came up into his mouth. He was going to die. He knew it.

The hunters tightened their grips on their swords, ready to strike down, when a silvery point suddenly jutted through the chest of one of them. His stormy blue eyes bulged in shock as blood spurted out around the point and poured down his black tunic. A grunt came from his mouth. His sword fell to the ground as he grabbed the steel point sticking out of his chest.

Behind him stood the pale-haired man. In his hand, he gripped the sword that was thrust through the hunter's chest. With a jerk, he pulled it free, letting the man drop to the ground in a heap at his feet.
