shield drabble: At Risk

At Risk

November 15 2003

Scattered, divided, leaderless, my companions dispersed in all directions. What had made me think I could hold them together? Faith? Will? Love?

When I heard the high wail of the horn, I threw myself headlong into the fight, desperately trying not to see that I had already failed.

Why did you go off without me? After so long, what made you pick this moment to leave your shield behind?
