“For the Lake and the Sword!” the knight cried, holding his giant sword overhead.
“For the Queen!” the other responded, raising his ax.
The clash of arms rang through the forest, sending the birds into the air and the foxes into their burrows. Eventually, the knight with the ax fell, his weapon flying from his hand and disappearing into the underbrush.
The sword-wielding knight wrested the prone knight’s helmet from his head.
“Traitor!” the Queen’s knight shouted when his face was exposed.
“Traitor!” he continued, his opponent raised his blade.
“Trai-“ the word was cut off by the plunging blade.
