The near silence was shattered by a thundering retort. Birds soared into the air and the Goblins looked at each other in surprise. It was not a cannon but it was too loud to be a Ferach musket. Several troopers looked over the piles of furniture and at the distant tree line. There were a dozen more loud shots and two curious privates of the 6th Company died from massive wounds to the head and upper chest. Almost as one the rest of the company reached for and then checked their muskets. The enemy was upon them.
Carefully Sergeant Telgoba peered into the trees from behind a stout overturned table. He saw tall figures moving towards them carrying the biggest firelocks he had ever seen. Several of the figures stopped and raised their weapons and he saw the flash of the black powder igniting. A moment later the table shook as a large lead ball struck it. Telgoba looked at the large divot now driven into the thick wooden table. “They has bigga firelocks sir. Longa rods for dem too.”
Captain da Fartado grimaced and pulled a splinter out of the shoulder epaulette of his jacket. A drop of blood shone on the brutal end of the wooden spike. “Ci Telgoba, we must hold until da others arrive. To Arms!”
