Unusual Allies |OPEN|
Maximus was sleeping soundly in the stable with the rest of the royal horses, when suddenly he awoke to the sound of a twig snapping. His head shot up to attention scanning the edges of the forest for any kind of disturbance, he slipped through the other horses and entered the dense, dark woods. It was midnight, sleep was still clinging to Maximus though he tried to shake it off. He stared into the black of the trees but nothing seemed unusual.
After several minuets Maximus was satisfied and returned to the stable, “Must be getting paranoid..” he thought as he returned to a particularly pleasant dream about free apples in the marketplace. Suddenly he heard a sharp piercing scream emanate from the woods, Maximus didn’t hesitate as the other horses were emerging from sleep Maximus was sprinting into the woods. He followed the noise of the scream deeper and deeper into the woods. Suddenly it stopped. Maximus was now in one of the densest Forrest areas. He stopped and looked around. It was pitch black, he breathed heavily, none of his fellow soldiers had followed. He turned to look suddenly he bumped into something… Or rather, someone.
