Man of War – Excerpt No. 134

In the distance Marc caught the sight of a horse and rider racing towards the Keep. As judged by the appearance of the horse, it had been driven hard.

“This can’t be good,” Marc said.

Bertrand broke away and turned to have a look. Riders rarely rode through town at a full gallop, and as he approached the colours of King’s messengers were clear.

“He wouldn’t send a messenger to ease the transition?” Marc asked.

“I doubt he follows changes in his court that closely,” Bertrand said. “Besides, the hate your Father had for the King was mutual…”

Horse and rider wearings the Kings colours racing towards the castle gates. Background and scene appropriate to 16th century France.
