Drabble Challenge #88

Prompt: sign

part 67 of the Expanded Blue Mountain Stories series: Blue Mountain


Goodie rode on a pony behind a red-haired boy named Wallace. Wallace and another English boy had been rescued along with Red-hand’s grandson, John Franklin. They and the warriors of Chagee rode north to rescue Goodie’s friends from the Raven Mockers. As they galloped north, a red-tailed hawk screamed and dived into an oak tree and burst through its branches, a raven gripped and dangling in its deadly talons.

“Look! A sign!” shouted John Franklin to the war-party. “Like that hawk, Red-hand will lead us to victory over the Raven Mockers!”

Goodie gripped Wallace tighter and prayed he was right.
