Finn must prove his worth to the Highlanders with a trial of vigor...
Just Once in a Verra Blue Moon
A Highland Gardens Novel
Finn warded off the first cut with the flat of his blade. Counterattacking, his feet firmly planted, he used his hips to bring power to his blow. The large two-handed sword was heavy. He heard Iain’s instructions in his head. “Bring the fight to an end swiftly, lad, before you become overly fatigued and are injured, or accidentally wound your opponent.”
Archibald grunted. The clang of steel rang in Finn’s ears. Sun reflecting off polished metal nearly blinded him. Ignoring the distraction, he reached within to pull forth his inner-warrior.
Lightning flashed. Rolling thunder reverberated in his ears.
Each clash of his sword sent vibrations shooting up his arms, thrumming inside his chest, racing down his spine, spreading through his nervous system. Instead of weakening him, the pulsating energy made him more powerful.
With every stroke, he wielded his sword with renewed strength, his senses enhanced. He moved from one blow to the next, his blade in constant motion.
A blur of silver fabric startled him, but he deflected the next strike with finesse.
