She doesn’t need the crackle of her teammates’ voices to know that she’s screwed. She’s known it since the first moment his face appeared in her mind. She gulps down the tight ball in her throat and moves her bird.
“Williams! They’re on your left wing!”
They’re on her right too, and somehow they’ve cut her off from her team. Someone manages to shoot the one directly in front of her, but there’s another one coming in behind that one and two more on her tail. She shakes her head. These are going to be her final moments. She’s not going to escape this one.
But she is going to go down fighting for her country, for her kingdom such as it is. This isn’t the life she’d thought she’d have. It wasn’t one she’d even known she waited until the war started. But this is the life she chose.
If she had it all to do over again, she’d make one change. She’d say “yes”. She’d take his hand and fight for another kingdom. But as she envisions herself taking his offered hand, she dances her jet between two others and knows this is her final magic dance.
