The Tournament at Gorlan, p.31John Flanagan
He closed his eyes again and added to the image. Now a black-clad figure, with long white-blond hair, strode in front of the Wargals to protect them and to face Duncan. His long, two-handed sword swung in a gleaming arc to block Duncan’s blade as the red-garbed warrior tried to kill another helpless Wargal.
The sword flashed quickly up and down, severing Duncan’s head from his shoulders and sending it spinning among the rocks. The headless torso remained standing for a moment, then slowly toppled over.
The surviving Wargals swarmed around the black-clad figure, bowing before him in gratitude and submission. Morgarath held the image in his mind for several minutes.
Then he felt a rough touch on his hand and he opened his eyes slowly.
The Wargal chieftain had moved closer and was kneeling before him. It took Morgarath’s right hand in both its savagely clawed upper paws and placed it on its own head, bowing before Morgarath.
The former lord of Gorlan smiled grimly, allowing his hand to rest on the bowed head before him.
“Oh yes, my ugly friend,” he crooned. “I think we’re going to get on very well indeed.”
