A cruel chuckle escaped from Drake's lips at Russell's words. "Good," he remarked. "You know the plan. Take a group of the men and flank their southern gate. My company shall attack their northern borders. From there we will trap them between our forces from whence there will be no escape," he remarked. Dismissing Russell he went to ready his own group, leaving his friend in charge of the second company.

Russell chuckeled, imagining what he would soon be doing before he went and spoke to his half of the men to tell them of the plan.

Walking among his men, Drake informed them of the plan. They were to attack from the north while Russell's men struck from the south and thus trap their enemies. From there they were to kill all the young men and take the women for their own. Once he was certain that they were ready, he ordered his men to move out and gave the signal to attack.
-----------------------------------------------------------
Glancing toward the hillside, Calista saw a cloud of dust steadily move toward them. "Heaven defend us," Calista muttered under her breath, her face paling at the sight. "Get yourself in the house. Your love will protect you," she said softly. "I must try and warn my people," her father's condemning words echoing through her mind.

"Whats going, on, what is that." Rosalina asked, she too had seen the cloud of dust but did not know what it was.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Russell saw the signal and sounded the charge.

"Bandit attack," Calista said softly. "As of late, their strikes have become far more frequent," she whispered noticing the cloud of dust getting larger. "Gareth," she added quietly, a small smile tracing her lips at his name, "normally protects us, but he was sent on a mission today," she added choking out the words. "Hide yourself. I must try and warn whomever I can. It is my duty to do so. Father would have it no other way," she added the last sentence to herself as she picked up the skirt of her blue dress and ran through the wooded path connecting to the village, a path that Gareth showed her all the secrets of in case she should ever need to escape.
------------------------------------------------------------
Smirking, Drake and his men broke through the northern entrance of Andestea, the steel from their bright swords glimmering in the mid-day light. Soon screams started to fill the air as the bandits poured through the village, burying their swords through the flesh of young men and grabbing what women they could and tossing them like dolls upon the backs of their horses.
Laughing wickedly as the carnage began, Drake urged his men onward, determined to see Andestea ruined before their might.

Rosalina bit her lip. the woman wouldn't be able to help the town folk herself, so she ran after her, knowing Darius would both be proud and think her foolish. "Wait, let me help." she called to the woman as she caught up.

"Go back," Calista said softly. "This isn't your fight," she whispered as she continued to rush along the path praying that her strength did not give out. She was utterly terrified but she had to try and help. If not, then her father was right. She was nothing more than the spoiled daughter he thought she was. As they neared the main village, Calista pressed her back against the bark of a tree as a bandit charged past her. Closing her eyes, she held her breath until she was certain that he passed. Arriving at the village, Calista nearly fainted at the sight. Bodies of men littered the ground and the wailing of women and screaming of children pierced the normal tranquil air.
"Burn it! Destroy Andestea!" Drake shouted after burying his sword through the chest of a young man who had tried foolishly to outfight the dark mage. Smirking as the mortal crumpled to the ground at his feet and a small trickle of blood flowed from his mouth, Drake simply kicked the body aside like trash, feeling no remorse as he stared into the boy's sightless brown eyes.
"Nolan! No!" a middle-aged woman screamed as she ran to lifeless body of her son. Cradling his bloodstained body to her chest she let out a wail as she turned her tear-streaked face up to the heavens and screamed in anguish for the death of her only child.
Wanting to vomit at the sight, Calista placed a hand on her stomach and sank back against the nearest tree away from the line of sight. The stench of blood mixed with burning wood and flesh assaulted her nose nearly causing her to gag. This can't be happening, she thought to herself, her face paler than a white sheet.

Rosalina froze at the site of the village, where was the humble buildings with the wary people. "Why, why would they do this?" Was all she could say as she watched.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Russell smiled as he grabbed some young boys who had tried to stop him. "I'm going to enjoy teaching you a lesson you'll never forget." He snarled as he raised his sword with acouple of other people.

"I don't know," was all Calista had the strength to choke out, the sight of the villagers being butchered sickening her to the very core of her being. She could hear Drake's maniacal laughter ringing through the air, a sound that she knew that she would never forget. Hearing the screams from a terrified child coming from a hut in flames, Calista broke from her covering and toward the hut. Placing an arm over her nose to try to block out some of the smoke, she felt tears fill her eyes as the billowing smoke stung them. Choking on the thick fumes, she sank to her knees and began to crawl around the hut, trying to keep low to the ground. "Where are you?" Calista called out her voice hoarse, to which a whimper was her only reply. Finally spotting the trembling form of an eight-year old boy, she quickly crawled over to him and scooped the child in her arms just as a part of the thatched roof collapsed and would have landed where the child sat paralyzed in fear only second ago.
"Mama's gone!" the child wept as he grabbed on tightly to her neck. Glancing behind her, Calista saw the charred body of a woman and shuddered despite herself.
"Shhh," she told the boy gently as hugged him tightly against her and half-ran, half-staggered out of the flaming hovel. Sinking to her knees as she made it outside, a violent coughing fit seized her as she struggled to breathe while the boy still clung tightly to her neck. Her face was now covered with soot and ashes matted her blonde hair. Her once clean blue dress was now stained with both dirt and soot. "It's going to be all right," she whispered to the trembling boy in her arms as she tried to catch her breath.

Rosalina watched the woman go off one way, and upon hearing screams, she ran the other way. She was not going to let people suffer. Hearing screams, she went and found a group of bandits surrounding a you woman a few years younger then herself. "Leave her alone." She called out, reconizing the lust in their eyes.

Holding the trembling child close as he clung to her neck, Calista just rubbed the boy's back. "Shh. I'll look after you," she whispered to him. "What's your name?" she asked softly, hoping to calm him.
"Damon," came his reply.
"It's nice to meet you, Damon. I'm Calista," she said softly as she gently pulled back from the child so she could gently dry his eyes. Giving the boy an encouraging smile, she gave him another quick hug.
"Come, we will go to my father, the Headmaster, he will be able to help you," she whispered as she rose again with the boy in her arms.

Rosalina started to approch the men, but froze when they looked at her. "Leave her alone." she repeated. Then men smirked at each other.

"Will you take her place then?" one said as he started to approch her.

Carrying Damon, Calista tried to make her way as quickly as possible back to the wooded path and to her father's house set just apart from the village. Yet, she did not know what protection would be offered them there once the bandits came after them. Perhaps that new man...Darius...would be able to help. If not, he looked as if he would be able to carry her father while she led them through the woods to hopefully escape. "Don't worry, Damon. Everything will be all right," she whispered, trying to keep calm for the child's sake.
------------------------------------------------------------
As he torched house and hovel one after the other, a cruel smile came to Drake's lips as he spotted a group of men surrounding one woman and another woman daring to command them to let her go. This woman was a beauty---no doubt one they could have fun with. Smiling to himself, he planned to grab her next.

Russell looked up from those he just killed to see a woman and child. "She's mine." He told the men and went after her.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Rosalina bit her lip, she was terrified, but it was too late now. "Let her go." she said again.

Pausing for a brief moment to adjust the boy in her arms, Calista turned her head for a brief moment and saw Drake approaching Rosalina from behind. "LOOK OUT!" she screamed at the top of her lungs but it was too late. No sooner had the words passed from her lips than Drake roughly grabbed the brunette woman and pulled her close to him. Hearing her cry, Drake turned and gave Calista a roguish grin as he scanned her up and down, eyeing her lustfully. The blonde woman couldn't have done a more foolish thing. There were many in their group that recognized her as the Headmaster's daughter and it would only be a matter of time before she too would be taken. Shuddering as she saw the lust in Drake's eyes, Calista just held Damon closer to her, wondering what to do for the briefest of moments.

Rosalina cried out, trying to free herself.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Russell smiled as the woman turned, he knew her. "BOSS! LET ME TAKE THE DAUGHTER!" He called as he eyed Calista.
