…All because…?

Getting in had been easy, the black ‘chute descending unseen in a dark sky, but getting out would be less so…

At the bottom of the White Steps on either side of the  archway were armed-guards: tall and beefy.

Was it luck that had spied the reproduction concave shield and long spear?

The spear skidded over the high wall clattering against the stair-well sides.

Up they came…  down went the shield… careering over the iced-stone, sending them both sprawling, and continuing on down the hillside and into the forest…

Shedding the shield brought a thought.

‘Hope she likes chocolates.’
