The War Cry

Epona stalks through the woods towards the sound of battle. A shriek of pain echoes through the mists as she steps into the clearing. Ahead, a huddle of warriors gather around their queen, fear in their eyes. They are losing the battle. The end is nigh.

Stepping through the crowd, Epona reaches the queen’s side and raising her dagger, she slashes across the dying queen’s belly. Reaching within, she drags the screaming baby from the womb, and into the light. She is not too late. The new king of the Horse Clan wriggles and lets forth his first war cry.
