The Archeress, Part 15

_____________________________________
Retribution (Part 15 of The Archeress)


Chagga hadn’t known much about his mission, but he told her all she needed.  Her student had accepted his fate with dignity, which gave her pride…and deep sadness.
Now she would add his death to the list of wrongs to be righted.
The Temple was dark save for the guard towers at the five corners, and a tiny light inside the Master’s chamber.  He would be in his nightly meditations.  What mantra was he reciting?  A prayer for success?  Forgiveness?  Or had he assumed victory and forgotten his betrayal already?

She moved from the forest’s edge toward the nearest tower.
