A Clash of Swords in Scotland

An old-fashioned villain in an ancient castle… brought down by a boy! Rome closed his eyes. He heard the clash of steel against steel and felt the jerk of his arm as it struggled to support the huge weight of the steel sword with its sharp gleaming blade. Crash! Rome staggered backwards almost knocked off his feet by the blow. He lifted his sword again to defend himself as the enemy’s horse reared up next to him. He knew the next blow would be fatal! It was now or never. Rome raised his sword and struck with all his might.
