I could see him holding the blade to her chest. I knew what was going to happen. My heart was dying along with hers. But my love had some fight left in her. She made a move that made me smile but he was quicker, sloppy but quicker. She fell to her knees and that brought a smile to his face. I stepped out from the trees and startled him. His silver blue eyes looked shocked but then fell away to a smile that was fit for a dying heart of the one you hate. “Bryony, come to see your love?"
I was unmoving and with a flash I flung an arrow at him. It nailed him in the shoulder and I flung another arrow at him this time aiming for the chest or head which ever way the fool jerked. It seemed he was faster than anticipated. He hissed and flew in the air and turned to silky white mist. I ran to Ash. She was still breathing. He hadn’t killed her but she was still dying. Something was out of place. I gently rolled her over. It became visible to me. Blood ran down a small spear that she had been hidden inside her vest. It seemed when she fell it pierced her heart – just enough. I recognized it- the invisible spear of Lug. She never told me about it. I shoved the spear all the way in.
