"Welcome my loyal servants. You may be wondering why I have ordered you to come here. Recently, my guards have caught a spy from our neighboring kingdom. After putting the spy through rat torture-" a few despicable men snickered here, "we have found out that they are planning an attack on us within the next three days. Now we must prepare ourselves for war."
The next two days, I was ordering around soldiers and preparing for battle. The weapons were sharpened, the greek fire prepared, and the water was boiled. Finally, they came.
It was midmorning when they arrived. My squire quickly dressed me in armor, and we went to the king. He ordered each of the knights to a different part of the castle. I was on the northern wing, the side that would be attacked first. I was in charge of the archers.
I saw the enemies marching forward. The trebuchets loomed in the distance. Our men stood tense.
As the soldiers marched closer to us, the king and his advisors rode out to meet the enemy king. After a half an hour or so, they rode back. The red flag was raised, meaning we were still going to fight.
The attacking generals rode in front of their men. All of a sudden, they turned and charged. I saw one of my men flinch.
"Hold steady, men!" I yelled.
"Hold," I screamed as they got closer. One of my men accidentally loosed an arrow.
"FFFIIIRRRREEEEEE!!!!" The arrows blackened out the sky. The oncoming men fell by the hundreds.
To counter, the enemies unleashed a deadly array of fiery stone. The stones pounded our walls, but they held fast.
"FFFIIIRRRREEEEE!!!!" I yelled once more. The next series of arrows was unleashed.
The enemies had now begun to climb up their ladders.
"GRAB YOUR WEAPONS!". All the men took out their swords and spears. As the men came up, we chopped them down. Some of the ladders were covered in Greek fire. We pushed down the remaining ladders after that.
Next came the siege towers. My men were pegged down from behind protective walls. Finally, we were able to take them out.
I look at the trebuchets. One of them fired. I watched the stone sail through the air. It hit a large hole where an arrow slit had been before. I watched in horror as the wall crumpled.
The oncoming soldiers cheered, sensing victory was near. Then I had a brilliant idea.
I led my remaining men to one of the tunnels.
I yelled, "Protect the king!"
My men and I ran into the tunnel. We took a secret passage that led to a tower. The enemies thought that the king was there, and had kept going down the tunnel.
I listened to their screams as they were burned by the Greek fire thrown down by the men up top. They were trapped in a fake passage. Then my men and I came out and finished them off.
After the battle was finished, I was personally thanked by the king. Then I went back to my nice manor, and rested.
