100-Word Challenge, Day 320

“Apage!” The shout from behind me breaks through the cacophony as an arrow through the air. It is laced with power: ancient magic that has an immediate effect. The goblins surrounding me, both dead and alive, are flung back toward the tunnel. The pause in the onslaught is brief, but long enough for me to regain my footing. “Be careful, Justin,” Julius says as he steps over the head of a fallen goblin to stand beside me, “the blood is impossible to get out of your clothes.”

“I thought you were still in bed,” I say as I decapitate the first goblin brave enough to charge again.
