“You knew, Erak!” Morgarath accused him. “You knew.” Then realization dawned on him. ”This is the one! Arrows, you said! My Wargals were hiding from arrows as the bridge burned! Ranger weapons! This is the swine who destroyed my bridge!” The voice rose to a shriek of fury as he spoke.
The dark lord hand shot forward and seized the ranger’s Oakleaf in a grip of iron, jerking the boy forward. He wanted to tear his gaze away but the man’s black eyes seemed to allure him, like the kalkar’s.
“You worthless ranger,…” Morgarath growled. “How dare you burn my bridge!” his ominous look was drilling the boy’s brown eyes inside out. The apprentice couldn’t say any word.
The chain where the bronze oak leaf was, started to encroach neck’s skin as the result of hard grasp. One tear flowed down his cheek

Chapter 1, part 1
Morgarath and his army were reaching the Three Steps Pass, from there they could go into the mountains from there. Wargals were walking and growling rhythmically, as they used to. Their scary grumbling had already given the creeps to more than one courageous knight.
Will was sitting on his bay horse and thinking about recent events. For all this time he had had Halt’s figure in his mind. Even if the man’s face was hidden by hood, the boy was sure he saw disappointment in his eyes. He was sure that his mentor had been angry at him. After all, Will was a ranger! Okay, maybe an apprentice but he still was a member of the Corps. He should not let it happen at all! And what had he done? He let Morgarath and Skandians kidnap him, as if he was a child! The youngster knew that he was over-whelmed and that was crushing him from inside. For some people it would look strange but the

Prologue, part 2
At the same time, near the Plains of Uthal, King Duncan was working out at the plan with his advisors. Nobody was sure, what to do. Create a plan assuming halt would be successful? What if the unthinkable happened and he lost..? But no one from the lords of the fiefs wanted to say their thoughts aloud. So far the grizzled ranger had never been overwhelmed.
Suddenly, everybody felt an agitation. The first line of Skandians appeared on the hill. Their horned helmets were shining when the sunlight fell on them. In front of the soldiers, was one, lonely, green-grey man on the small horse. A few warriors were running after him with lifted axes. At one moment, the blade of the weapon whisked really close to the pony’s tail. But the animal did not want to surrender and it sped up leaving the sea wolves in its wake.

So very dark....
Even now, it seems like darkness will forever consume my very being.
It encompasses me, delicately wrapping its' cold, invisible fingers around me. Around my heart.
"Dinner is prepared, Master."
It is amusing how a simple flick of my wrist sends them scattering away like helpless cockroaches.
No... it's disgusting. Absolutely pitiful.
"Would you care for anything else, Master?"
"No. Leave. Now."
"Yes, Your Highness."
Yes, Your Highness... Yes, Your Highness.... if only you knew how badly those three simple words pain me.
But you do know... Don't you, Claude?
Yes, of course you do.
It's obvious. Why else would you repeat that phrase over and over again?
To torment me. To drive me insane.
To inflict psychological wounds far worse than you could ever hope to understand.
They have the gall to wonder why I lash out at them.
It's because deep down....
Everyone seems to fawn over that Phantomhive brat. Even Claude.
