By the time Jeil got to the fight, one had already split from the group, heading towards Pixie. He spared only a moment's hesitation. Let's hope she can handle herself. Gauging the situation within a split second, he determined that there were two threats heading towards him, another one, the one with a wounded leg, was limping back towards his horses. Two others were engaging Rekka. The ones going after Jeil were carrying a dagger and a sword. Unfortunately, they weren't coordinated very well. The man with the sword rushed Jeil first, attempting an overhead cleave. Pity, if they had worked together better, it might have been slightly more difficult. Right as the tip of his sword came down, Jeil stepped forward, into his guard, blocking the forearms from bring down the sword faster. The man looked surprised when Jeil maneuvered inches away from his face. A quick punch to the man's stomach winded him, and Jeil used his forward momentum to grab the man's right wrist, step past him, and hook his legs. A relatively gentle push against the man's back, and SNAP! The man tumbled forward, clearly unconscious, his wrist broken. The man with the daggers didn't even have time to process all of this, until Jeil closed in. He thrust his dagger in desperation. Big mistake. Jeil grabbed the hand that held the dagger with both his hands as he stepped sideways, getting out of the way of the thrust. He made sure to keep a tight hold so that the man couldn't drop the dagger. Twisting the arm upwards and inwards, Jeil once again used momentum to guide the dagger hand back towards the assailant's chest.
When the immediate threats were over, Jeil noticed that one of the man who engaged Rekka was running away. The other made it to his horse, and was getting on. Jeil ran quickly back to his horse and finally found the bow which he flung on the ground. By this time, one man was already riding away on horseback. Cursing, Jeil grabbed an arrow from the quiver, and fired. It shot past the man's head. Shit.
Jeil took a look around. The man by Rekka was dead. Another man he killed, while a third lay unconcious. Glancing in Pixie's direction, another assailant lay on the ground. Two more had run away or hid themselves. Great, I hoped we could have prevented them from spreading the news to their friends. Jeil made his way back to Rekka. "Are you all right? Let's go get Pixie. Hopefully we can at least spend the night here." Jeil took a look at the five remaining horses. "Tomorrow morning, you should pick one of them to ride."
