Liam stood before the Dark Mage. 'You won't take my sister! Do you hear me!?' His side felt as though it was on fire and his could feel the warm trickle of blood run down his cheek. His arms were burned and cut up, but his side was giving him more agony than the rest of his wounds.
I'm not going to make it out of this alive., he thought and turned to his little sister. 'Alyse...you must run. Run as fast as you can.' He watched as she gripped her teddy bear tightly and shook her head now. 'Please, Alyse,' he whispered and smiled softly at her, 'I can take care of this bastard. I'll catch up to you at the next town. I promise.' Liam watched as she mouth the words 'I love you' and reluctantly fled.........Alyse never saw her brother again.
I know, sad isn't it? I had to put a little story behind the picture. I think it needed to be done, that I did. *nod nod* Oh well..enjoy!
