Moonlight and steel

Not real happy with this one. It's another inspirational piece for me though. The story behind this one is of a Captain who is made to choose between his duty to his wife and his duty to his king. He chooses his obligation as a patriot, but the thought that he's chosen wrong haunts him as he rides away. I wrote a short story to go along with this that serves as something of a prologue for Fallen Gods. On the eve of the birth of his first child, Captain Korukai is ordered to put down a rebellion in the neighboring village of Sienlo. His wife begs him to back out, but he views such a move as cowardice. When he reaches Sienlo, he finds the town deserted. As he and his soldiers investigate, an evil fog envelopes the town. His warriors fall clutching their throats. Korukai escapes, fearing he's been set up, and spurs his horse back to his estate only to find his mansion aflame, his wife and staff murdered and his child missing. Who is behind all of it? Heh, heh. That would be telling.;)
