A Knights Purpose Essay, Research Paper The battlefield was quiet. Only a handful of men were left to tell the tale. Kelly, a tall man, tanned skin and silver hair, leaned on his sword, which was stained a crimson red. Kelly has now been a knight for eight years now, and was soon to become a father. His wife was nine months pregnant and was soon to conceive. Slowly, the four men rose to their feet, and started walking back to they’re town, they’re home, and the only place left for them. Silence could never have been so eloquently described, the way these men acted on it. You could hear a needle drop, if the ground was hard enough. As the men reached the top of the hill, they could see their town, Kidlen. Kidlen was a quaint, tiny town, with a lord and a few nobles.

They’ve been fighting for their independence for thirteen years now. Every war against Adbun brought on new hope, but that hope was then taken by the raiders of the east, when they did their monthly raid on Kidlen. Time after time, Kidlen was able to defend against the raids, but as food and rations became more and more scarce, so did their chances of living through another war. The military was bubbling with excitement as the squires greeted the four lone knights who came back from the war. Bursting with excitement, Lance, who was the son of Kain, was a young rambunctious little brat. He never did what he was told, and when he gets into fights, the other person usually comes out with a broken limb of some sort. Kain, the father of Lance, was a man of his word. Very stern,

extremely loyal to his friends but he’s also kind of paranoid. He had a medium build, blond hair, and was fairly tall. His face was scared with the years of battle that he participated in. Lance ran up and jumped on his poor father’s back. Kain being the paranoid man he is, threw Lance to the ground and punched him in the chest. Lance never forgot the face of his father at that moment. A face that was so innocent, so pure, and so goofy that Lance broke out in a hard laugh, only hacking a few times because his chest was in pain. Kelly got up and greeted the squires and made his way to the monastery, which was in the center of the military school. Kelly, and the rest of the knights finally got to the monastery, upon their arrival, Diane, the Lady of the monastery greeted them,

and motioned for them to come and eat with her. After a few drinks, and plate loads of food, they started to tell Diane about the war. A week has now passed and Kelly’s daughter had finally arrived. His hope of having a son was soon to be shattered, as for that very knight his life would drastically change. “RAIDERS! RADIERS ARE COMING!” Shouted one of the town guards. Sure enough, there was a full squad of raiders, not that well armored but very tough. Riding into battle like a swarm of locus’ attacking a farm. Guards from the town walls shot a few of them down with arrows, but the raiders still advanced. The military school was swarming with activity. Knights getting fitted with their armor, squires getting on their gear, along with archers and the cavalry. It was too

late though. The raiders broke through the city. “What’s this?” Kelly exclaimed as he saw the Adbun army close in with the raiders. “Has it been like this for ever?” He sat down, not caring what was going on. Never in his wildest dreams did he think that the two armies would combine to take out Kidlen. “KELLY!” Shouted Kain as he stumbled by in his armor. “Get up we have a war to win!” “Why, Kain Why?” Questioned Kelly. “Why do we have to fight? Is there a purpose to all of this? I don’t see one. Tell me wh ” He was cut off in mear sentence by a swift backhand on his head. “Snap out of it man!” Stated Kain. ” Fighting has no purpose, unless you have something dear in your heart you want to fight for. For me, it’s for Lance, and my wife. You
