– Dusk or dawn

The Crimson Flagbearers in the forest had their formation broken. One by one, the crimson swallow-tail banners plunged to the ground.

Silence filled Lord Palas’s surroundings. The veteran general’s fingertips on his sword hilt whitened a little more—

[To think this enemy unit kept on waiting patiently even though their allies were in a disadvantage. They must be the Mercenaries of Lopes in the report.]

He closed his eyes, and there was a strong sign of fatigue that showed on his deeply wrinkled face. Lord Weld was one of the youths he appreciated, but regretting was not permitted on a battlefield. Aouine had shed too much blood.

There was only cold determination in his unlit face when he opened his eyes.

[Since the rebels have shown this card, then victory is all but confirmed.]

“The knights from Randner, go forth and add a victory stroke that’s full of ink on your achievements.”

Was it Elven pride or some unknown factor that supported her confidence to remain unfazed under this situation?

[If it’s confidence, then where does it come from?]
