Blinding White Light
I felt it before I saw it. The energy was going to implode and then explode. Moving the cloak a fraction, with one eye I looked out. Aed had moved me. I was looking through a different tree when the light was activated. Those in the open would be momentarily blinded. An advantage only the morally corrupt and cowards used. I heard the blade hit bone and Roland swearing loudly in 21st Century English. So he was having a killing hissy fit…with his own.
“Fucking rapist,” I muttered as I went back to sleep. “Burn in the fire you bastard.”
