She feels her heart flutter again with a mix of excitement and dread. She looks for her mentor, the one taking her through her trials, and feels a hand upon her shoulder, steadying her slightly. Without words they seemed to speak, the young woman suddenly remembering everything she was fighting for, that her sisters were fighting for; honor, tradition, vengeance, all for her people, all for the kaldorei. She hears the wheels of a kodo-pulled cart coming up through the pass, the heavy footfalls of orc soldiers, the tiny patter of goblin strides, the clop of tauren hooves. She smells them. They were almost in position.
For that one second before the call she was flooded with thoughts, images and voices. She remembered the pain of failing her one trial, the thrill of passing it after another attempt, the voices of her sisters cheering as she does so, their smiles, the sisterhood she was becoming part of taking her one step closer to becoming a full member. She runs her fingers over the drawstring over her bow, a weapon she crafted herself, as all Moonblade did, and her fingers lightly brush the raven feather fletching. She had named it, she could feel the bow ready itself for battle. She heard one last footfall, the clink of armor, the sigh of an exhale, and in that moment she heard it, the faint whistle of a bird call.
She stood up in tandem with her sisters, like a single being, a flood of movement. As they took a step from around their cover the sentinel saw the other half of the force do the same across the gap. Everything had slowed down, her bow lowering, the arrow pulling back, the throng of Horde filth coming into sight all at a maddeningly slow rate. She felt her sisters, the front line soldiers catapult themselves off the edge, shields raised, and she saw the foot soldiers on the other side come down as well, a wave of steel and bulwarks seconds from crashing down upon the caravan. In all their minds the same words rang, as if it were being shouted to the moon glowing above: "For The Moonblade! For truth! For Darnassus!"
And with that she released her arrow.
