The Iron Burned
written by: Zoey Xolton
The Ranger cursed through his teeth as the iron chains that bound his wrists and ankles burned his flesh black. They'd got exactly what they'd wanted. The verdict was unanimous. He was part fae and would burn at the stake for it, or so they presumed. He was a Ranger of the Wild for a reason. The hooded priests led him into the yard behind the church, securing him to the funeral pyre.
"Any last words, Sinner?" asked the Bastion of Light.
The Ranger smiled. "May your God be merciful."
Before the priests could react, the earth swallowed them alive.
