Weekend Writing Warriors: WHITE HART #13

Hello bloggers!

One last obstacle before Gawain and Gaheris face their final encounter with the allusive white hart.

“This place is strange Gawain. Unnatural. I donna like it.”
“Or natural for once.” Gawain said. The adrenalin had gone out of him from the fight and he felt wearied, drained and saddened by the loss of life. If it had been a life. He dropped his hand on his brother's shoulder, glad for the warm, solid touch. “Come on. We've got to get across the river.”
Gaheris nodded. “Right. We donna want to keep our watery graves waiting.”

Gawain of Orkney has not been to Camelot since before his father led a rebellion against King Arthur. Now that the war is over Gawain is sent to attend Arthur's wedding.

The night of the wedding Arthur bids Gawain to hunt a white hart -- a beautiful deer of unearthly purity. Gawain accepts the quest but the dangers of the wilderness become hard to battle when he is bound by Arthur's new ideals. Gawain realizes he may not be so different from the knights of the old, violent ways of as he had imagined.

Gawain does not have long to decide which life he wants to chase. Not all the rebels put down their swords when his father did. The knights of the old ways are planning an assassination and even King Arthur may not survive his own idealistic trust.
