To the Mountains

I let out a battle cry as I shoot another arrow at the humans castle. I grab another from my back and slip it into my bow, aiming once again at the castle. We'd been doing this for hours, and the sun was soon to set. I call down to my father,

"Father! I must go find rest!"

"Fine Son! To the mountains then!!" he calls back, stabbing another human in the chest. I didn't know I had winced until I'd realized I'd dropped my bow. I fly down to retrieve it then fly off towards the mountains.

I watch the war beneath me. Everyone is yelling, swords are flying and blood covers the ground. I see bodies laying strewn across the ground and watch as more add to the total. I shed a tear and watch as that too falls to lay amongst the carnage.

The End
