Writing Resources from Fifteen Minutes of Fiction
The Siege of Syrn: EpilogueBelgarn finished his story. It was late, but Gazma was full of questions. "How long did Dirk stay at Syrn? Did he help rebuild the town?"
"The government offered to make him the permanent commander of the castle, and the people would have supported him through and through, but he would not stay there."
"Why not?" Asked Gazmal, Gazma's brother.
"He helped rebuild the town, and then he left, a decorated hero. He joined the Celtarn, and our family line has followed him ever since, right down to you two boys."
"Why did he join the Celtarn when he could have continued living in comfort at Syrn?" Said Gazma.
"He could not bring himself to live there. Memories of the battle and of Arem haunted him. He thought that by leaving he could be free of those memories, but he never truly was."
Gazma looked out over the city that his great-great-grandfather had commanded. He felt a sense of pride in his legacy, and he wondered what he could do to live up to it.
