Prelude 8, The Battle is O'er

The Battle is O'er

Book Five of The Blue Bells Chronicles

Glenmirril, Present

time travel, medieval chapel, chapel with crucifix, chapel with statue, the battle is o'er, blue bells Chronicles
His crying settles to hiccups, that still manage to echo in the empty medieval chapel. He buries his face in my shoulder, and becomes still.

What just happened here?” Mairi’s voice shakes. “Where did they go?”

I take her hand in my free one, squeezing. “I’m not sure,” I say.

Shawn emerges from behind the crucifix, his face grim. He looks every inch the medieval warrior, in his trews and leine, his red-gold hair tied with a leather thong. “Wait here,” he barks.

In his sharp command, I hear a man who has become a leader, who has ridden with James Douglas and fought at the Bruce’s side. He draws knives from his boots, one in each hand. “Mairi, take James,” he barks. “There’s a passage. I’m going in. One of the tunnels leads to the water gate. He could circle back.”
