Fantasy Drabble #55 “Master and Student”

The duel has gone on for nearly seventeen years now. Sometimes the action is furiously quick… spells flying, explosions of fire and light, teleportations. Sometimes it goes maddeningly slow, searching for each other or for advantage of position by cloud, by ship, by balloon.

She’s powerful, I underestimated her. Not because she’s a woman, and beautiful, but rather because she had been such a poor apprentice. I suppose it wasn’t due to a lack of aptitude, but rather a lack of respect.

It will be a shame to kill her. It’d be a bigger shame to die at her hands.
