Hey guys, hope you enjoyed last week’s post.  Here’s part 2 of Blood of the Honored.  Enjoy!


“That’s Posha, Old Bringfok’s niece,” one of the locals who had gathered around said suddenly. “What happened to the poor girl?” the question was asked incredulously, but also with a hint of real anger. These people couldn’t imagine how anyone could harm a child. Pargnok could. He had seen it many times in his years defending Coalition territories and before.

“What happened, Posha?” Pargnok asked the little girl gently. “Who was the nice army man? Was his name Trugmuk? Did he where a uniform, like me?” While calming frightened children was not his greatest talent, the captain did have nieces and nephews of his own.
