The Gathering Storm
by Robin Bridges

Slowly, the footsteps got louder. The person was getting closer, and soon I could hear a soft grunting.

Mon Dieu! I looked around, realizing I was still in the middle of the thicket, too far away to run in any direction. And no one would hear me if I screamed for help.

“Duch-essss,” a young man’s voice whispered. His footsteps were right behind my tree. “My mis-tressss.”

I peeked around the tree at him. I felt sick as I recognized him. It was the soldier who had fall en at the Blessing of the Water. Count Chermenensky.

His face was ashen, his eyes a milky white. “Oh, no,” I whispered, shaking my head. “It cannot be.…”

“Duch-essss,” he said, holding a frostbitten hand out to me. “Help meeee.”

“What has happened to you?” I whispered. I wanted to run, but I was so scared my legs refused to budge. “You were dead.” He bowed his head. Some of his black hair had fall en out.

“You called me.”
