#44 - Before Anvil Part 2

Hellä’s heart thudded in her chest as she looked at Master Topani. Blood dribbled down his chin and onto his leather jerkin. He let out a shuddering gasp as Kai began to inspect the wounds, and then saw Hellä. Even the master artificer’s voice sounded injured as he spoke.

“Girl. I told you to leave me.”

A short fantasy story set in the LARP world of Empire. While healer Kai tends the wounded Master Arto Topani, Hellä prepares to meet the fury of the night head-on.

We're off to our LARP now, but this is the second and final part of mine and Sue's characters' backstory!

As always, I would love to collaborate with you! If you have short fiction that you would like me to include as a standalone episode of Pocket Fiction, drop me a line!

Each track is also available as a podcast through the iTunes store.
