The Deadless Horseman (UN-C-819)
For several hours Christopher held onto the tree for his very life, while below the rider patiently paced around the giant oak, as if he had all the time in the world.
Christopher had been holding on to the tree for over six hours, when unexpectedly he was hit in the chest with his brothers severed head, though he feared he might fall, Christopher managed to rebalance and hold his position, when he dared to look down the rider was gone and the sun rose to herald the start of a new day.
It was several hours before Christopher had the courage to quit his hiding place and sprint to the closest house.
The occupants were busy preparing food to take to the continuing celebration on the village green that day. So Christopher helped himself to some money and tried to think a way out of his predicament. Slowly the coincidence of the death of the horseman and the annual anniversary of the revenge attacks first on Eldrith and then on his younger brother became clear to him.
