Gunther turned towards the forest and slowly guided down between the trees. He let us off. I looked around. It was a gorgeous jungle. However, I was visibly shaken, I had my sword in my hand and sat upon a tree trunk. Kanani came over and put her head on my lap giving me comfort. Gunther put his paw beside me and stared into my face. Merlin climbed a tree and looked behind us to see if anyone was coming our way. It was very peaceful here. Would the others find us? Were they still alive?
Lamorack heard me screaming and came running back, he threw the door open and grabbed me. Looking around he saw what I was so upset about.
“Who did this?” I cried, running over to my backpack. I scrambled and throwing everything out! There was no phone! It had been taken! All of my lovely dresses had been slashed!
“I have a pretty good idea,” said Lamorack angrily.
Bryn walked in with Kanani. Kanani ran over jumping on me and crying.
“What happened? We were just here half an hour ago! This is horrible! Let me go get some help and we will get this cleaned up for you, my Lady.” Then she ran out of the room.
“Thank you,” I called after her sitting on my bed. I was upset about the phone, now I was really out of touch with my world!
Everything was cleaned up and Lamorack insisted on coming back and sleeping on a cot that he had them bring into the room. He informed me that he had to be in Camelot tomorrow and I needed to go with him. If I could just survive until that time, I would be happy.
I slept fitfully, tossing and turning. I couldn’t believe this was happening to me. Maybe when I woke up I’d be back home in my own bed.
The Unsuspecting Spy
Fiction based on a real person and how no one knew not even his family what he really did. His wife thought he worked for the railroad, when he actually was a spy for Britain.
It was 1981 and my grandmother had just died, I was on my way to England to go through her things. When I arrived I met a cousin I had not seen since a child. She let me in with her key and we went up to the attic of my grandmother’s little two story yellow cottage in Surrey, England. I pulled open boxes; all of them were from my grandfather that had died long ago. I knew nothing of him really; he died before I was born. My cousin and I pulled out boxes and boxes of letters and photos, then drug them downstairs. The old desk that I was never allowed to touch as a child was just sitting there in the parlor. What was in the locked drawers? I was going to find out. I picked up the key sitting in the metal dish on top of the mahogany desk and put it into the lock. When I opened it, my life and my cousins’ live were changed forever. This is my grandfathers’ story; he was a spy for the English government during World War 11. Why did he die with his secrets? What was he hiding from his family? Where was his other family? He told my grandmother he worked for the railroad. I read on and this is his remarkable story.
Lamorack lead the knights deep into the forest, then suddenly put up his hand for complete stillness and quiet. They heard horses riding through the Forrest. “Get your arrows ready,” he whispered.
He positioned everyone off the main path on two sides. They came closer and closer; he put down his arm for charge. The battle was bloody; many of the Dark Bandits were killed.
“Where is the child?” Lamorack commanded of a fallen Bandit with his sword ready to kill him. “I will spare your life if you can tell me where she is!”
“She is tied up a mile from here in a tree,” he spat out.
“Show me,” commanded Lamorack jerking the captive to his feet.
Lamorack followed the man leading his horse while Richard and a few knights followed. The others were waiting for their return on the main road.
“Daddy!” Screamed Leila when she saw them coming. “I’m up here.”
“I see you baby, were coming.” Richard shouted back hurrying as fast as he could.
They got there and Richard climbed the rope ladder to cut her loose.
“Oh Daddy,” she sobbed, “I was so scared.”
“I know honey, but your alright now.” He hugged her then brought her down and placed her in front of him on his saddle.
Lamorack pushed the bandit and told him to go away.
With that they caught up with the other knights and rode back to Camelot.
