A young girl stands on the brink of war and peace, childhood and adulthood. Anchoring her in place is a single bright idea that she must cling to...hope. 'But Father...I don't understand. Please...' The girl kneeling on the cold packed-earth floor clasped the old man's age-apotted hand in her own, willing the tears to go away. He smiled fondly at her even as he lay dying, his eyes fogging and blurring her sweet face. 'Never fear, child. Inspiration will come to you. Promise me...you will never let life interfere with your music.' 'Father...' 'Promise me! You must remember there is one...one...' 'I promise, father. One what?' 'One ideal above them all.' 'Yes?' 'Hope.'

Myndd Glenvale

I don't know...I had a weird inspiration to write about an epic battle...and this is the result. The first chapter...I know most of it is not accurate, and I had to condense the fight, but usually this is not my subject of choice...
