The troll took me by surprise, luckily it's roar gave me just enough warning to evade what was probably a fatal blow. This thing is much faster than it looks, how could I have been so careless? I see Tate running this way, I just have to not get hit for a few more seconds. I duck under another swing of the trolls club, this one I think could have easily uprooted a tree. when I get to my feet Tate has reached the troll and is hacking away at it, the slashes seem to have little effect. I take a step towards the battle and hear Tate.
"Get out of here! Move!!"
He doesn't want my help, probably just doesn't want to risk me getting hurt. I notice my hammers are no longer glowing, the effect must have wore off. Without that extra power my hammers will be next to useless against this troll, I just don't have the strength to effect such a powerful creature. But I refuse to run, I will not leave Tate alone, I can't. If I can sneak behind the troll maybe I can distract him enough to give Tate some kind of advantage. As I make up my mind I see Tate jumping and flipping, slashing the troll between every move, graceful doesn't begin to describe his style, the way he flows from one move into the next is something you only hear of in legends. I make it around the troll when I hear it scream, I move back around the beast to see what has happened and Tate is standing directly under the troll, his sword straight up into its throat probably piercing his brain. I take a deep breath feeling relieved its over when suddenly I feel a sharp pain over my entire body, everything fades to black...
