Finn continues with the fight, the trial of vigor...

Just Once in a Verra Blue Moon
A Highland Gardens Novel
Bk #2

Finn breathed deeply, dragging air into his lungs. Oxygen pumped through his veins.

He warded another blow, pushing forward as he did. Archibald stumbled, his chest heaving from the effort.  
Taking advantage, Finn released his left hand from the hilt of his sword and struck his opponent in the throat. Staggering backward, Archibald fell to one knee.
The crowd roared. Shock registered in the man’s eyes.
Finn dropped his sword and bent over, panting. Holy shit. He’d bested Archibald.
The other warriors pressed forward. Someone pounded Finn on the back, cheering him. His vision blurred. He thought he might lose his breakfast, pass out.
