The knight picked his way through the rubble of the ruined city dragons had hit it hard.  Smouldering corpses littered the streets and squares, so much loss, not a one was alive, not a one.  Stepping into what had once been a sunny courtyard the knight noticed a tiny mangled body strew about the stones, a childish foot here, the scalped skull bleaching in the sun there, and lying just a few feet from the knight was a tiny hand outstretched, as though trying desperatly to reach something, or someone.  only inches from the tips of the tiny fingers lay a tumbling pile of rubble and poking out from it's base was a small patched paw.  The knight kicked away the stones, his eyes gleaming with a mixture of morbid curiosity and tears, he pulled gently on the paw revealing a well worn, heavily patched teddy.  his eyes shone with tears remembering his own daughter standing outside their little house crying as she waved goodbye to him with one arm, and hugged her little old teddy with the other....... This little description always kinda makes me sad, so if you don't like being sad, meet the alternate description (not from my story like the above one....) Ronald the great shouldered his huge ax and then scooped up Harold with his other hand, even he, the great brave warrior couldn't bear the thought of entering the battle without his beloved friend Harold The Mightiest Teddy Warrior of all........
