Deeper into the forest I ran, hoping to reach safety before she got too close.
My next tree climb was coming up as a blue bolt passed before me striking the tree trunk and exploded, throwing me across the forest floor into the trees, I took a big hit to my back and legs, I was in serious trouble now.
I started trying to claw my way along the floor to a tree to get up into, she was on top of me now.
She stopped running as I turned to look at her, the biggest smirk I have ever seen cast across her face.
"You should never have come back!" She said, laughing "stupid girl"
She threw her staff to the floor and started to walk closer to me.
She looked at me, she had given up her staff, she looked up to the sky.
"I don't need magic to suck the last breaths from you" she smirked as she drew in closer.
She rolled me over and threw herself on top me putting both hands around my throat and started to squeeze the life out of me "You took a life from me and now I will take a life from you!" I was starting to struggle for life, grasping at her arms to try get her off.
She smiled and laid right on top of me, she was going to kiss me goodnight as she took my life away.
As she forced her body into mine to place her kiss of death upon my lips, I drove Red's dagger deep into her heart, twisting it to make sure the wound would kill her.
Her wild smile turned to shock and horror as she realised what I had done.
She released my throat but I couldn't get her off me as she put her hands to her chest, she looked at the dagger in my hand "That dagger?" I pushed her off me and rolled her over so she could see the sky "yes that dagger, Reds dagger!" I said to her.
Her eyes closed for the last time, looking at the lightning overhead, I sat down by a tree next to her.
Her guard came round the corner, looking at me sitting there next to the Sorceress, she picked up the staff and walked over to look over the Sorceress "she nearly killed me to save herself" she said, looking at her dead Queen, I looked at her "from the cave?" she looked back and nodded at me.
She took the Sorceress placing her over her shoulder and looked at me, tossing me the staff "our world doesn't need this" she carried the Sorceress away with her.
As she left I slowly got to my feet, I was beat up, I used the staff as a walking aid as I made my way slowly back through the forest, that dagger seeping her blood all down my leg. Through the remains of the night I dragged myself along, through the mass of trees and tortured lands, I was going to keep my promise to return home to the Queen.
As the sun began to fill the forests with colour, I had managed to make my way back to the Queens camp, I couldn't get any further than the altar that I had been sent to die on all that time ago. That altar was like the start and end of my journey, I was going to end my journey in the forests here.
I laid on top of it, battered, bruised and bleeding with that staff by my side as the sun rose, I heard her voice call me. I wasn't sure if I was seeing my final light as I heard their voices all around me, the last thing I recall was a light so bright it couldn't be of any world.
