"Now we can't have that now can we?" Ian grinned that same evil grin and delivered a round house kick to her face. "Her wounds are fatal, but I have seen weaker survive much worse". He took a moment to gather his wits and pick up her rune blades. He found a recently killed war stead and reanimated it. "This should last long enough to get her over to him." Ian licked the blood of his glove,"could use a little heating up I suppose."
That was when he saw the mage looking over at him. It appeared as though neither of them had the energy to fight the other so Ian shouted "You so much as raise a finger at me Mage I will take her head off." Ian put a hand on his blade to show he was not to be tempted, killing her or taking her alive either way his mission was accomplished.
