The man staggered back, howling and clutching his wound, then tripped over one of his companions and fell. And, suddenly, it was over, except for the two knights. The shorter stranger stood in the midst of three fallen soldiers, blood staining his sleeve and running down the side of his face, but the grin he gave Coll was sure and strong.

Cavalrymen rode after him, laughing and whipping the donkey if it strayed off the road that led back to the royal demesne.

He, too, knew that serfs couldn't be allowed to fight back. Four soldiers came at Coll. Panic seized him; he knew his only chance was to kill them first. He leaped on the foremost soldier and swung high, but the soldier was ready to block now, so Coll kicked his feet out from under him and seized his spear as he fell, twisting it from his grasp. He slashed with it at the soldiers. They leaped back in surprise and caution, knowing what that honed edge could do and how little use leather armor might be against it.
