The Witch's Son - Part 2
[Continued from Part 1 HERE]
Suddenly Daven stopped short. A green light flashed in the window and a wicked laugh sliced through the air.
Genesis gasped. “Mama! Papa!” She started for the door. As soon as the cry passed from her lips, the door swung open and a tall hooded man swooped down on her, grabbed her throat, and suspended her in the air. Daven was so afraid, that he couldn’t stop himself from speaking.
“Put her down!” he yelled at the great wizard. Genesis was turning blue.
“So a little boy dare threaten me,” he threw the almost unconscious Genesis to the ground. The last thing she knew was a green light, a great shout, and strong arms around her.
“Good morning!” Genesis was coming to. “Or maybe I should say ‘Good afternoon’” Daven was speaking. Genesis fully woke and sat up.
“How did you-?” She asked, but Daven interrupted.
“It was a horseshoe!” he continued spilling out the story. After Dolthar had dropped Genesis, Daven had run towards the woodpile, where he claimed to have left a horseshoe. As he touched it, Dolthar reached into his robes and pulled out a long stick. Daven was going to throw the horseshoe at the vile wizard, but when he saw the magic wand, he had another idea.
Dolthar pointed the wand at Daven, uttered a few words and green sparks shot out of the end. Daven lifted the horseshoe, and the sparks bounced off and hit the wizard Dolthar. The wizard let out a howl like a sick dog and fell to the ground, dead. “And that’s the story!” said Daven, grinning big. “He kinda trashed the place though. Speaking of, Mr. and Mrs. Katidad1” he shouted into the other room. Mama and Papa rushed in. Daven left.
“You almost died!” said Mama, embracing her daughter. Papa smiled.
“I’m fine now,” said Genesis retuning the embrace. She stood up. “Let’s get this place cleaned up!” Quickly, she tied on an apron, picked up the broom, and started to sweep.
