Chapter twoI have been chosen for guard duty today,and it hasn't started out too well;already,I see black shapes gathering in the forest not too far away;possibly a meeting of the spirits that live in the Trees? No. By the looks of it,they have weapons. Lots of weapons. And they were coming closer. I then saw the unmistakable shape of a Rock Steed with a small figure riding on top of it. I knew it immediately. Skrall. I went along closer, and put my hood on;this would disguise me so that they wouldn't notice me. I got out my bow, I puled the string, and out came a yell. I've just shot one of the Rock Steed riders in the chest. His Rock Steed has ran away, leaving it's master to die. Then,the other's must've found out that I was here, but I quickly hid behind a bush before the Skrall's nocturnal eyes saw me. I then ran. I needed to ring that warning bell. i needed to. And then,right before I was about to reach it,i was knocked over by one of the Rock Steeds,and my mask hit the Bell. Hard. The villagers heard this,and they ran. The Skrall closed in on them. I had only 5 arrows left. There were 10 Skrall. Then,a plan hatched. I shot at one of the Rock Steeds and it fell on another one,killing them and the riders. I went on like that until only two were left. I only had one arrow left. I decided to shoot at one of the Rock Steeds. It's rider quickly jumped on another Rock Steed and those two Skrall quickly grabbed me,and rode away. I quickly realized: The Skrall came to kidnap me.
