Fantasy Drabble #46 “Not The Fairy Tale Ending.”

I’ve been running from the Circle for so long, it’s become a way of life. The amulet protects me from their locator spells, but not from more prosaic forms of manhunt. I’m the only one left.

How did it come to this? Our attempt to overthrow them was right, just. We were brave and true, as heroes should be. We never expected to be betrayed by the very people we were trying to free. Their fear spelled the rebellion’s doom.

Fine. They can rot under the Circle’s heel forever, for all I care. Their cowardice has bought their everlasting oppression.
