    Adventure of a Dark Elf Part 8

    As Talia and i leaped into battle, I couldn't tell what was going on. After about five minutes, all the bandits were dead. "What-what did you take care of?" I asked Nathan, out of breath. "I had to take care of a rival. I saw him earlier. I had to take him down." "I understand, but you had me VERY suspicious!" I replied. "So, anybody ready to fight Alduin?" Talia asked. "Yes!" I said. Nathan nodded. "Where is Alduin?" "Throat of the World." We ran all the way to the 7,000 steps. When we started climbing, I heard a growl. "What was that?" Nathan asked. I could tell he was worried. But he was also determined. All of the sudden, two Frost Trolls landed out of nowhere. Talia charged at one, but the icy beast whacked her far back. "Talia!" I exclaimed. NOBODY MESSES WITH MY TEAM!!! I lunged at the first Frost Troll and stabbed it so many times, it didn't even have time to attack. Meanwhile, Nathan was having no trouble fighting the other hairy ba<_>stard. He had wiped it out in three hits. When I ran out of breath, the Frost Troll slowly fell backwards. The two of us ran over to Talia. "You alright?" I ask. "Keep going. I'll go get some soldiers." We continued climbing, not knowing of the monsters ahead......
