Blackguard Posted May 12, 2012 Share Posted May 12, 2012 The que to pass the gates into the castle stretched for many yards. It didn't seem to move any faster with a blind man at the front of the line, or at least what appeared to be a blind man, his brother and sister. The guards had turned away countless commoners who had hoped to enter the castle and gawk at the royal spectacle. This trio seemed to be no better, yet they had a paper inviting them into the castle. The Sergeant of the Guard came forward to inspect the papers and found them in order. The seal of Prince Rupert was well-known to the guard that served him. Somehow, these commoners had orders sealed by the Duke of Cumberland himself. The sergeant stared into the milky eyes of the blind man. He was either blind, or an albino. "Let them pass," he ordered. The pale blind man pulled the cowl further over his head to protect against the sunlight that was now only appeared from behind a cloud. With a big man on one side of him and a pretty woman on the other, the man with the colorless eyes moved forward. Strangely, a sly smile appeared on his face as he limped into the castle.
