(surrounded by enemies)
He pulled the rein on his horse and the horse began to move ,from afar he saw loki standing at the middle of the field with a tied man, he rode for a few miles until he was close to them. He jumped down from his horse and he move closer to them.
“Hmmm! I see just a Lil boy with browny head”loki mocked
” I see just a tall old timid man, with lame soldiers ” ajadi smiled
“You know! Adigun should have killed you when he had the chance ” loki muttered
“And I should have chopped his head off his body when I had the chance also” replied ajadi
“Smart boy ” loki smiled
“I see just a man alone, I expect you to come along with my mother ” ajadi asked
” men first and lady after. If you want your mother back, we will have to trade her for something more precious ”
“To what do you want to exchange with my father? ” asked ajadi
“Nothing much, all I need is for you and your huge monsters to stay off my kingdom” loki replied
” You should know I have no interest in taking your kingdom, all I need is my parents . But the deal won’t work without my mom ”
“OK Then ,if that’s what you want I will take him back and keep your parents in my dungeon ” loki turn and head back to his horse .
Ajadi quickly rushed towards him.
“ok! Fine, I will take him for now, and I will be back for my mother ”
“Smart boy, I guess I will have no problem with you and your dragon anymore .. take your father ” he pushed adejare and he fell to the ground , ajadi quickly help him up and he untie him from the rope he was bundled with, tears gushed out of his eyes as he gave him a tight hug.
before he could realize what was going on, Adejare secretly pulled out a knife from his belt and try to stab ajadi but his horse jumped up and hit him down with his legs. The knife flew off adejare’s hand and he fell to the ground, before ajadi could make a move he saw thousands of loki’s men howling from the woods, advancing to the moan of warhorns and the roll of drums. Boom DOOM boom DOOM boom DOOM came the sound, a thousand hearts with a single beat. Some had spears and some had bows and some had axes.
Others rode on chariots made of bones, drawn by teams of dogs as big as ponies. Giants lumbered amongst them, forty feet tall, with mauls the size of oak trees.
“blow the horn ” ajadi called.
“Throw them back.” zillar screamed.
Immediately they start running towards the battle field,but ajadi stood amidst the field, alone.
“arrows ,” he cried,
“feed them arrows ,” but there was no one to pay heed. before he could realize what was going on, He was surrounded by thousands of loki’s men,he pulled his sword and fight back .
They are all gone. They have abandoned me. Burning shafts hissed upward, trailing tongues of fire. Scarecrow brothers tumbled down, black cloaks ablaze. “ajadi” an zillar cried, as foemen scuttled up the ice like spiders. Ajadi was armored in black ice, but his blade burned red in his fist. . He slew a greybeard and a beardless boy, a giant, a gaunt man with filed teeth, he tried to get zico but he was gone as quick as he disappeared . The world dissolved into a red mist. Ajadi stabbed and slashed and cut. He hacked down adigun and ogidan.
Ajadi stumbled to his knees, trying in vain to staunch the flow of blood from his neck. “I am the Lord of the wilds, the son of the dragon and the true son of adejare” ajadi screamed.
He look all over the field but none of his men where before him , his hair wet with melting rain. Someone hit him from behind and took his head amour off. Then a gnarled hand seized him roughly by the shoulder.
