This is my first story so please comment :D
Also, Part 2
All my life, I wanted to be the Hero, just for once, be the hero... am I one now?
Bodies around me like mountains, blood flowing in rivers, stench of rot and death everywhere... and then there I stood, alive, but I had done my fair share of the killing... ah yes.
You see, me and 419 other brave knights had grabbed our blades and we rode against 5000 undead.
We had them with surprise, timing and the advantage of the landscape.
We were like lions, warriors of the light and we made the dead feel scared. We lived up to our names, we went against a number of men by far greater than ours, we knew we couldn't win, but we still went.
As I was saying before, I was standing, was I the last one alive of us? Most likely No, but I was the last one standing.
My hands both held my sword, it was a one-hand sword, but I was by far too wounded to hold it with one hand.
I had dropped my armor, it was too heavy for my weakened body.
We had defeated the army scourge...but they would have sent more men by now and I, well I was just standing there, so that when they come, they see that while they have died, a knight is still standing.
A fellow knight crawled to me, he was wounded beyond imagining , in his face I saw, that he was ready to die now, as he saw that already there was a knight standing.
I shed a tear as he closed his eyes and died. I should’ve been dead, not standing, but I was a Knight and it was what I had to do.
Suddenly the land started to shake, the scourge had sent more men. I just waited, no matter what, I was dead.
As the scourge came they walked past the bodies and came to me. They surrounded me and looked at me, I raised my blade high, hell maybe I could even take just one down with me.
Then a high ranked death knight walked to me. His armor was too strong for me to pierce.
“Drop your sword!” he yelled and as his hand moved to his axe, I smiled wide,
“To hell with you...” I whispered.
The death knight grabbed his axe and in a blink of an eye, my head flew off...
so I'm dead... but I died as a hero.
