So, recapping the weekend that was, here’s everything Realmgard that happened over the weekend:
First things first, Friday was Chapter 13 of Charge of the Lyte Brigade:
Once again, Wulfbert the Handsome, the fiercest and best-looking bandit in not just all Realmgard, but the whole wide world of Terrace, is not in a good mood.
Glancing around the battlefield, he finds his bandits have proven themselves utterly unsuited to a task as simple as fending off a group of teenagers. What is he even paying them for? Clearly, they’ve gotten lazy. Have they really forgotten how to fight?
As for himself, he’s locking swords with a little punk who doesn’t have the simple decency to just let Wulfbert beat him to a pulp. And he’s got a raccoon gnawing on his leg.
“Get off me!” he growls, trying to kick Melisa off him. “Ugh. You stupid raccoon!”
“I’m. A. Badger!” Melisa reminds him, biting down on his leg even harder.
He manages to slip out of the grip of Melisa’s jaws and strike at Nolan, staggering him long enough to put some distance between them.
“You’re just a bully,” Nolan tells him, pressing forward. “And now you’re losing because you’re up against somebody who can finally bully back!”
Wulfbert glowers down at him.
“Who? You? You’re just a kid! With a pet raccoon!”
“Actually,” Matilda calls to him. “He’s six kids! We’re all in this together!”
Wulfbert soon finds Nolan backed up by the other members of the Lyte Brigade, making it a seven-to-one fight.
As far as Wulfbert is concerned, that means his odds are just about even.
“Come at me one at a time or all at once,” Wulfbert shouts back. “It won’t make a difference.” He glares at Nolan and hefts his sword. “Maybe I am just a bully, but I’m only getting started bullying you.”
But, also, I did two pieces of Weekend Writing this, uh, weekend:
