Night Star stroked the Arabian horse she would be riding into battle, black as night and fast as the wind. His name was Jarrah. Night gave
him an apple and she chewed on some dried meat she had in her satchel. She needed sustenance of some kind if she were to perform efficiently in this
war and she knew they wouldn't be dining in luxury today. Some of the warriors were restless and wanted to rush into battle, but the elven race were
poised and waiting patiently. Luckily the weather had warmed up and the sun was shining brightly in the mid day sky.
Back at the cave the pixies and faeries danced and sang for the children. They gave them teddy bears and candy after a quick lunch of simple
sandwiches and milk. The mothers tried very hard to be brave and smiled in spite of the rising fear within them.
Wanderer was still animated and angry, arms flailing as he spoke.
"We can't stay here Storm, no we cannot stay! There is a war to be fought, lives to save, evil beings to kill. How you can stay so calm and just sit
here on your huge leathery butt?"
Storm rolled his ice blue eyes. "WE have an obligation to guard the castle and that is what WE are going to do. It is just as noble. It is an honor
to be chosen. Now calm yourself and get your armor and the weapon of your choosing and shut the hell up!"
The chubby purple little man was getting on Storm's nerves and it took every fiber of his being not to breath fire in anger.
The Royal army was ready and with great speed their horses would lead them toward the Castle, their castle, their home.
After a time, Aria made sure that her armies were ready and led them towards the battle that would save the good people of the forest and all that was
sacred to them.
Night Star quickly jumped onto Jarrah's back, rose her hand high into the air and shouted.
"It is time! We ride forth proud and brave!"
The horses sped forth, a furry of hooves pounding the earthen floor. Wanderer, after suiting up and grabbing a sword had snuck onto the back of one of
the horses without the rider even noticing.
