“Hah!” Briana yelled as he turned his attention back to the fighting. “I told you not to be so quick to fight me!” Briana literally had Brice pinned to the ground with the point of her sword at his throat.
“Okay, okay!” Bryce conceded, holding up his hands, surrendering. “You win!”
A wide grin lit Briana’s lips. “Not before you say it.”
“Say what?” Bryce asked innocently, trying to get up, but Briana was quick to hold her sword tightly to his throat, backing him down.
“You know full well what to say,” Briana teased, a half smile pulling at the corner of her lips, as she pushed the sword closer to his throat.
“Okay, okay!” Bryce was quick to concede. “You’re the best … “
“The best what?”
“The best swordsman in all of Cambria,” Bryce mumbled.
Bryce sighed, then said loudly, “Briana is the best swordsman in all of Cambria.”
Briana laughed as she released the point of her sword from his throat.
