Ch 4 - part I - Silent Promise
by Lattelady

He held her tightly, not wanting to let her go. Fifteen annuals under the Witch had taught him that if DG didn’t succeed, promises wouldn’t matter. She wouldn’t be returning to him. She would die and die ugly. He couldn’t let that happen. With resolve he didn’t know he possessed, he sent her on her way with a nod of his head.

He knew what he had to do, if he survived his part of their plan. With cool precision he put an extra round into his pocket. One bullet saved so she wouldn’t die ugly, he’d see to that.

Ch 4 - part II - Moment of Decision

He didn’t feel the pain of the wound in his shoulder, nor realize he was out of breath from running the stairs so quickly. The only things that were real for him were the cool metal of the weapon in his hand and the sure knowledge that there was one bullet left.

It didn’t matter what the Witch would do to him if he deprived her of another Princess, because if he pulled the trigger, his heart and sanity would shatter beyond repair.

As he charged through the balcony door, he aimed at the spot between DG’s deep blue eyes.

Ch 4 - Part III - Game Over

DG saw him scramble through the door. His weapon pointed at her head. For one moment it was as if a travel storm had shaken her world once again. Then everything cleared when she saw pain burning in his usually cool blue eyes.

“We did it,” she smiled.

His gun wobbled and slipped from his fingers.

“I’d have done anything to protect you from her wrath,” his voice shook, telling her just what it would have cost him if he’d had to pull the trigger.

Tears filled her eyes, as he swept her into his arms and their lips met.

Thanks, I've got 16 chapters so far and for some reason never posted them to my journal. I'm going to try and get them all up this weekend. They were written for the on going Timan100 Challenge here at LJ. I'm adding to them all the time.
