“Grandma, I’ve never seen a cloud like that.” Rebecca said.
“That’s no cloud,” Naomi quietly replied. “That’s a fury!”
The wind had started to blow quite strongly as the twister had had reached the ground. Tree branches and other debris were swirling around the cloud. Naomi started barking orders.
“Rebecca, get in the basement. Lancelot, can you stop that thing?”
“We can try, M’lady.”
“Pip . . . Oh, Pip, where have you gone?”
Rebecca went to the basement as directed, but she found a chair to stand on so she could see out the small window. She could see her grandmother chasing the livestock out of the barn, in case the barn fell she assumed. She looked at the cloud. She was somewhat surprised to see what looked like flying horses. There were five of them. They had long wings and were struggling to fly closer to the cloud. Atop each one was what she assumed were Lancelot and his crew, each armed with a bow.
Two months ago this would have been quite shocking. However, in the last few weeks she had learned that her grandmother was sharing her body with a real dragon, met a gnome, fairies, a water spirit, a couple of elves and a gremlin. How shocking is a flying horse? So, she watched the flying archers and said to herself, “How cool is that?”
The mounted archers flew closer and closer to the cloud. Then they started shooting arrows into it. Rebecca wondered what they were shooting at. Then she saw it. A dark hand shape reached out and tried to grasp one of the fliers. The archer shot it at point blank range. The arrow stuck and the hand jerked back. Arrows kept flying. After a time, a large dark human shape tumbled out of the cloud and plunged toward the ground; the archers in close pursuit. “That must be the fury” Rebecca thought.
The wind started to die down almost immediately. By the time the fury hit the ground the cloud was all but gone and Rebecca was out the front door at a full run. She wanted to see the fury up close. As she rounded the corner of the barn, Naomi caught her in her arms.
“Not so fast.”
