The horn rang. Echoed.

He allowed himself a smile. Did the Great-man think his noise would avail him? Fool. Fools, the lot of them.

His eyes glowed with deadly light. The movement in his arms was fluid, suave--nearly graceful. He fit the arrow to the bow. Squinted at the gasping Great-man.

The horn rang again. Desperately.

For a moment, watching red-bright blood bubble at the other's lips, he felt guilt. A moment. Short, then gone. Guilt had no place in him.

The arrow flew at the Great-man's chest. Killed.

The horn fell from slack fingers. Silent. Cloven in two.
