It had been decided the previous day that Damien the doctor would be executed. The people of the keep went to there beds feeling confident that they had got another traitor.
The following morning, on this, the first day of the second week, the people gathered in the Grand Hall to witness the death of their foreign doctor. Lady Suzanne looked particularly flustered that morning, as did Rotrigous. Kyle looked a tad pale as well, if in relation to his upcoming task or too something else, nobody knew.
Damien was brought out struggling from the dungeons, and led towards the executioners axe. This would be a public death, so all could see what happened to those suspected of being a traitor.
Suddenly, Damien gave a cry and pointed upwards. Look up there! He shouted, and the guards looked. In that moment Damien bolted, up the stairs and into the keep. The guards gave pursuit, with Kyle well out in front. It seemed that Damien was making for the rooftops.
And so he was. Once there, he pulled himself up onto the battlements.
Standing, he surveyed the kingdom from his high perch. Grim was following close behind.
Damien made a quick prayer to his spirits, and he put his tribes faith to the test. Leaping from the castle ramparts, he willed his guardian spirit, his mighty Eagle, to help him fly away from the place of lies and deceit.
All Kyle could do was stand and watch the poor doctor plummet to his death below.
After all the excitement had calmed, Damien was searched, as were his rooms. It was discovered that he was a loyalist. The people cried out in anguish at having been thwarted again. When would they be rid of the traitors? Or were they doomed to be picked off, one by one, until only the traitors remained? Only time would tell…
