The Skeleton General, impressed by the University Bishop, decided that he too should take an active role and almost to flaunt his independence rode in front of the King’s battle headquarters.
Seeing the Bone army move out was the moment the patient but blood hungry Black Army Leapers had been waiting for and they moved closer to the White Army’s fortifications and the prize that all those who served a master craved. Promotion.
The King’s Bishop, the Angel had been in conflict since the very start of the battle. Everything about the field had a familiar air about it, even the King all of a sudden seemed closer in spirit than before. If only he could remember, and lose the confusion that had made it feel useless so far. He had visions before reaching this place of leading the army alongside the King to an early and easy victory but nothing had been further from the truth. The King seemed confused and conflicted. Then as if its thoughts had been an omen, the King ordered the Angel to defend an attack from the Leapers that had taken both its priests and the Bone General’s men. This time he felt its King was right. The Angel sought vengeance for all those the Leapers had killed with a deadly hand.
