by Kat Jaske

kidnapped. Can Laurel and the musketeers find and rescue her without telling
King Louis XIII? And what happens to the musketeers and France if they
Section Two Excerpt
The man remained crouching, completely concealed behind
the trees, unmoving, waiting with patience until the musketeers and their
injured companion had disappeared.
Unfortunately, he’d been unable to hear their conversation
about the injured member of their party. All he knew was that the musketeer
called Porthos had called the lad Christophe and that the boy had not
been killed or injured too severely in his nasty fall.
When the sound of the horses faded and the meadow was once
again still, he pushed himself up from his stomach and checked each of
the motionless bodies.
All four of the mercenaries he’d hired were dead,
so he reclaimed the funds that he had paid them. It was only fair. They
had not successfully discharged their duty, and somehow the musketeers
had discovered they were being followed, so they weren’t as good
as they had boasted either. The Prussian surveyed the meadow one more
time and then ducked back into the trees, stepping over jutting branches
and sidestepping rocks as he traced his way farther into the trees.
He hiked for a while until he came upon the location where
he had lashed his horse. The animal was still there and showing signs
of restiveness, pawing the ground in an expression of its anxiousness
to be gone.
Could hardly blame the mare; he was anxious to be gone himself.
In addition, he needed to get to Brandenburg-Prussia and Friedrich swiftly.
Obviously, the musketeers and their two companions were heading for Brandenburg-Prussia
in an attempt to rescue the queen of France.
He unlashed the horse and mounted the animal, slowly guiding
her from the sheltering forest and toward the open road.
Time to be sure that he arrived in Brandenburg-Prussia,
well before the rescue party. It helped that they had an injured member,
and there were still the other mercenaries that had followed the other
half of the party after they had split up. Thus, it was quite possible
that injuries or death would strike those other three and impede their
task further. . . .
