whats up redwall fans…. this is my first post but ive been thinking about writiing this for a while
It was a cold and still night on the mountain of Salamandastron. Sunblade The Swift stared out across the sea, searching for the vast ship that had haunted his dreams the past few weeks. Sunblade was a large badger, but his strength was not the reason he had overcomed the obstacles and became Badger Lord. He was extremely agile, faster then even his best runners of the Long Patrol. His choice of weapon were twin broadswords that seemed like dirks in his large hands. These swords were special to Sunblade, as it is why he chose the name. Made from the metal of when a star fell into a mine of gold and bonded. Sunblade had found this metal and forged it into two swords when he was much younger. The blades had retained the gold color, and were as sharp as the day he had made them.
Sunblade sniffed the air, the night was to quiet for his liking. The hairs on his back rose as he scanned the horizon looking for what was causing these uncomfortable feelings. A bloodcurling scream, that only a massive beast could have created rang out on the far side of the beach. Thats when Sunblade sa the terrible thing he had sensed.
His wife Roseabel had been out collecting fruits and vegetables in mossflower country with a group of hare foragers when she heard the scream. She had about ten hares with her, all unarmed except for a short dagger, she knew she must get to the mountain or else there would be a serious problem. She grouped her hares and they started sneaking quietly back to the mountain to alert the other hares. A hare slipped and hurt his ankle and cried out loud. Too loud.
Bebar the Barbaric was a fearsome sight. He was massive even compared to Roseabel, and had long fangs and claws that were permanently bloodstained. He was a wolverine, a cannibalistic beast that was almost impossible to stop. Roseabel and her hares had no chance, Bebar and his horde of cannibalistic stoats and weasels were upon them and it was over as quick as it started
Sunblade was running through the tunnels of Salamandastron, looking for his wife. Instead he ran straight into Brigadier Ckrops and sent him flying
"Ckrops! I'm sorry I didn't see you there. Get you're hares ready as fast as possible, there is trouble in the forest! Have you seen Roseabel" Sunblade said.
Brigadier Ckrops was a middle aged hare that had a ferocious appetite, and the gut to prove it. All the large in the waist section, he was an experienced tactition and a fearless warrior, he was the very essence of the saying "Perilous Hare"
"Orders recieved sah! Roseabel was last seen with the foragin- oh bally she's out in the forest! Neva fear sah, the Long Patrol will be ready in a tick of a tack wotwot?" Ckrops responded before speeding off rousting his warriors
Sunblade follwed the tunnels until he got to the secret entrance to the mainland. He ran off screaming at the top of his lungs "Roseabel! ROSEABEL!"
He heard some rustling and saw a stoat that had been wounded in the battle. The blood rising in his veins he grabbed the stoat by the neck
"Where is my Roseabel? Where are my hares?! Speak or die!" Sunblade roared as he flung him to the ground. The stoat winced at first, then an evil smile slid over his face.
"Hahaha! I've always heard hare meat was a bit chewy. Never believed it until today haha! Looking for badger like you? Bebar has taken her with him back to the land of ice to be his wife and bear his child! Bebar will create the ultimate monster" the stoat responded
The BloodWrath had fully envoked Sunblade, and talking was no longer the option. He ripped the stoat in two with a single slice of his blades and ran to the beach to see the large black ship he had dreamed sailing away.
