Where We Go From Here Part II

Axton attacks; his barbaric tone a feint for a more calculated defend and strike tactic. As our opponent engages him, I flow out of the shadows behind it and strike deeply. Our opponent's eyes go wide as it's brain attempts to process how it was crippled and Axton beheads it in one smooth blow. 

Without moving and still holding his stance from the follow through, Axton looks up at me in defiance. I hope he didn't see me startled for a brief moment but I glare back at him as ominously as possible. He breaks eye contact, sheaths his sword and takes a more compliant stance.

Blast and curses to Athelstan and his lord. 

I eye the corpse for a second, turn and move further on our journey. She will do the looting.
