    Joh’an watched from a safe distance as the troops garbed in black searched the woods. Inside the hollowed tree that once stood proud before the ice giants stormed the land, leaving it but a shell of a tree it once was, he scantly breathed a breath. He wished his beating heart would stop just in case the demon spawn warriors could hear it, like the one who passed a few feet from him.

    He emerged from his hiding spot and caught movement on his right. He froze, fearing that his life was over. He closed his eyes and wished he could see his family once again.

The large man crashed into Joh’an and leveled him flat. Looking up at his attacker, Joh’an begin to flail his arms and drew in a breath to scream. In a quick move, the stranger was on him with a sharp stick pointed to his throat follwed by a massive, dirty hand covering his mouth. “Quiet or they will hear us!” hissed the stranger.

Joh’an once again slowed his breathing and beating heart before he moved. He looked in every direction before making that first step home. His wife would never believe he just saw the man everyone was looking for, especially the Baron of the Misted Hills……
