When he finally came to, the scene that greeted him was from a nightmare. Severed limbs were flung around burnt bodies in a grotesque parody of a dance.

Getting up on his feet with the help of a broken lance, he took a few mouthfuls of sooty air to clear his head. In the middle of the scorched black field, he could see a dark shape bent over the remaining patch of green. His boot made a squelching sound as he trudged past the broken bodies.

“Merlin,” he spoke over the keening sound. “They’re all gone. You can stop now.”
