I stared him in the eye, and he stared back. The blue moon rose up over my head, and the black night sky above his. He had an army behind him, and I had eleven people. Every single one of his men was armed with bows, arrows, knives, swords... and my rag-tag group of kids had only their hands. Doesn't seem fair, does it? "We should stop meeting like this! These midnight affairs are getting old," I called out. "I couldn't agree more!" he replied, with that cold voice I had grown to hate. I spread my wings, and fire enveloped my hands in fire. You're right -- it wasn't fair. This was going to be far too easy.
