there was once a man who was skillful with his sword

but in the comfortable absence of war he had developed a debilitating languor

then one day an enemy he had previously defeated came to exact revenge

bursting through the door, catching the man off guard

the enemy not allowing a minute for response and the man too slow to reach for his weapon

he was only afforded a split second to regret before watching his enemy shoot an arrow to his chest

before moving in close to decapitate
