As the month marches to an end, I push my stories out to my patrons. With Infiltration and Onslaught complete, my attention shifted from successful defense to the breach by Jameson’s family. Despite all of Samuel’s secrets and sorcery, the sheer numbers of Jameson’s family are too great to overcome. While our hero protected the jail and the criminal for a while, eventually the unstoppable nature of the criminal family broke through his defenses. Unfortunately for Samuel, he’s still waiting for Pearl to return with the calvary.
Settle into a comfortable chair with your favorite device and join me as we detail the conclusion to this series featuring Samuel, a Dragon Rider.
As Samuel fires his last enchanted bullet, he stares into the oncoming foes, wondering where his allies are
“Do you have any more spells, enchantments, or whatever?” The sheriff asked as bullets slammed into the wall over his head. With splinters showering down upon him, he loaded his final round into his weapon’s magazine. In a single motion, the lawman cocked the rifle, positioned it in a growing hole, and fired at the first combatant he saw. “Cause the rest of your magical defenses are failing!”
Samuel worked his Winchester’s lever and cursed when he glanced down at the empty chamber, staring up at him. With a sigh, he laid his weapon down as the barrage of gunfire coming from outside increased. “I used my last bullet enchanted to deal with dragons, and my regular bullets are out of reach.”
“Nope, they’re gone.”
Samuel’s hand fell to his holster and his tired fingers wrapped around the comfortable grip of his pistol. “We just need a little more time.”
With a sneer plastered across his face, Jameson crept forward and lifted his chest off the floor. “That’s unfortunate for you, considering your defenses are withering away to nothing, while my family’s resolve intensifies.”
