I side step behind a tree and hear an arrow fly past me where I just was. “Is that all you got?” I reply getting way too cocky. He shoots again yelling at me in some language I’ve never heard. “You know I can’t understand you.”  

“I know, but I can understand you.” he yelled his voice echoing in the cold crisp air. “So when are you going to come out from hiding and face me?”  

“When are you going to give me the chance?” I yell back.  

“I’ll tell you what, if you come out we can see each other face to face for just a second.” he called out to me his voice sounding more innocent.  

“So you want me to come out into the open for a second just so you can just see me face to face?”  

“Yes, now get out here.” he said slowly getting annoyed.  

“Okay.” I say as I step out, he and I look each other down. Then he draws his sword on me, I draw my sword and we fight. You hear a ding here and there. He starts yelling in a different language again. “I have to learn this language if I’m ever going to find out why your trying to kill me aren’t I?”

“Atirga mev ogite eass otaivu ishokuto leesotoyuhf!” He continued yelling at me.  

“What are you saying?!” I say back. I’m running now; too out of breath to yell anymore.  

“Avifaminta aisheetogofuhyt atirga mev ogite eass otaivu ishokuto leesotoyuhf!” he  chased after me, drawing a knife and aiming to throw it at me. I start running faster than I ever have before. I dive into a bush and pull out my bow and an arrow. I draw the bow string back and fire at him. “Aveenatoga” he yelled as he threw the knife at me he misses by about 2 inches, but my arrow hits him in the arm

“What the hell was that for?” he yelled in pain and anger.

“That was for chasing me and trying to kill me, you...” a bird starts chirping really loud so he didn’t hear what I said. Probably for the best. I start running again trying to put some distance between him and I before he patches his arm up and recovers only to start chasing me again.

I start hearing noises in the trees around me. “Show yourself!” I yell. A beautiful woman steps out. She had long brown hair and bright green eyes.  

“Wha-aa-aat?” she replied shakily.

“What are you doing out here by yourself?” I ask.  

“I’m lost and I keep hearing fighting. Arrows flying through the air and swords clanging.” she said with fear and confusion in her eyes.

“Okay, well how about you stay with me until we reach the next town. I can protect you until then. Do you trust me enough just to let me do that?”

“I guess I have no choice. As long as you promise to give me space and not get too comfortable with my company.” she smirked while saying that like I was going to get too attached to her.  

“Okay but you better not get too close to me...” I give her that evil and mischievous smirk she gave me.

“Why are you smiling like that?” she asked.  

“Oh I think you know.” I replied with sass.  

“Don’t give me that, wow you are hopeless you’re already getting attached to me. This is going to be a long couple of weeks.” she replied with a lot of sass.
