I sprinted forward with them, wishing I could help, hoping that somehow things wouldn't end up how I thought they would.
The raven flew overhead, cawing loudly at the Boar just as an arrow flew and struck the beast in the side. It squealed and spun around, looking for what hit it but quickly focused on the girl again as she started running.
I looked to the edge of the forest just as a horse and rider came bursting out and barrelled towards the girl. I watched as the white-haired rider reached down and grabbed the child's arm, dragging her into the saddle in front of her.
Estella arched her body around, drawing her bow and aimed at the Boar that was a few meters behind her. She released the bowstring, and the arrow struck deep into the Boar's eye. It dropped to the ground and slid to a stop. Spinning back around Estella reigned the horse to a halt and hopped off, leaving the young girl in the saddle. She walked over to the Boar tentatively and lightly tapped it with her bow.
"Whose that?" Agnar said, looking as if he were in a daze from the sight of her.
Haldor turned to him, an uncertain look on his face. "I think that's Magnus' daughter. I've heard she looks odd, outlandish."
"Odd?" Agnar scoffed. "She's Beautiful."
Haldor looked to his friend, his eyes wide, and he frowned. "Oh, no, no, no. You would be stupid to try and court her. Her father adores her and if he doesn't like you." Haldor dragged his finger across his neck.
Agnar just smiled and started walking towards her. Haldor groaned, throwing his hands up in the air before following his friend.
When he started to get close, Estella turned to the two men who were walking up. Her eyes narrowed, but she didn't move from the Boar she was studying.
"That was an amazing shot, Nyedlig," Angar said, smiling at her. I watched as she frowned and turned back to her horse, pulling the girl from the saddle.
"Yes, well, you two weren't doing much." She shrugged.
Agnar's smile grew, he stepped up to her. Her eyes growing wide with surprise and irritation, but before she could say anything, Agnar crouched down and spoke to the little girl. "Where are your parents, young one." He said to her, ignoring Estella's glare.
I opened my eyes, seeing I was back in my room again. I groaned, rolled over in bed and froze.
Edam was crouched beside my bed, eating a piece of toast. His eyes squinted at me, "Morning." He said, taking another bite of his food—crumbs falling to the ground.
"Morning," I grumbled out, unimpressed by his invasion.
His eyes got narrower as he stared at me. "You're having those dreams again, aren't you."
A chill ran over my body, but I sat up, causing him to fall backwards. "No," I said.
"Oh, please, I can tell. I have known you for so long now." He paused. "Are you okay?" He asked, concern in his voice.
I looked at him, "I'm fine, now get out of my room Edam."
