Man of War – Excerpt No. 36

“You didn’t bring me here for a history lesson,” Marc said and hit his tongue before adding that his governess handled that aspect of his education. 

“You’ll be getting an education,” Bertrand said before slapping the back of Marc’s head. “Just not the subject you are expecting.”

Marc followed his mentor further past the church to a clearing. It was on a hill, and there were stones protruding from the ground at regular intervals. Despite being nearly burried by time, there was enough left to identify them as  tombstones. Nearer to the woodline there was one gravestone that stood tall.

“Who was buried there?” Marc asked.

A man in his forties and a boy looking upon a hillside cemetery. Run along a hill, there were headstones protruding from the ground at regular intervals but are nearly buried by years of accumulation.
