15. Eyes are the Windows to the Soul

 

Goliath, Septimus and Diolace kept walking, gathering firewood and torn blankets as they went. They soon came to an open space, Septimus hauled some of the large fragments of rock out of the way, as Diolace sat down and made a fire. They all perched themselves on a log, with thin, ripped blankets around them. They did not speak. They only shivered, as the cold night surrounded them.

   “So, how do you plan to beat Brazeedas?” Septimus enquired, nervously, “He has been trained by the champions of Athens.”

   “I shall have to be quick and agile, we are talking about Brazeedas, and the man is a fool. He killed the whole of my town. Did he not think that someone would notice, did he not think someone would rise against him? He has become overwhelmed by fame and wealth, it has corrupted him” Goliath threw bits of wood into the fire as he spoke, Diolace and Septimus could tell he was nervous.

   “Goliath you must rest, if you are to beat Brazeedas” When Goliath didn’t respond, Diolace tried to change the subject, “Come on, go to sleep, me and Septimus will keep watch.”

   “I will not sleep until I know Brazeedas is dead, by my hand. That is all I seek. When he is dead, I will burn his body in front of those in hiding back in Sparta” Goliath did not move, and nor did the others. Septimus got up and walked away into the distance hanging his head and kicking small stones. Diolace shuffled next to Goliath.

“Are you ok?”

“I won’t be ok until Brazeedas is slaughtered”

“Maybe you should forget about him, he is not worth it”

“You thought he was” Diolace stared blankly not knowing what to say.

“You’re face!” Diolace peered at the gash on Goliath’s cheek, “Was it the rocks?”

“No, that blasted snake,”

“It’s bleeding still, here let me-

“No! It’s ok-

“Shush!” Diolace put her finger over Goliath’s lips, “I can help, I haven’t done anything, and I want to help someone.”

“Ok” Goliath turned so his right side faced Diolace, and she ripped the hem of her dress and tried to soak up the leaking blood.

“You are a caring person Diolace, and I appreciate you’re help”

‘It isn’t a problem, I just want to see 2 happy civilisations living in harmony.”

“I wish for the same deep down behind the anger, you may not see it but it is there.” Diolace stared into Goliath’s eyes for a moment, as if trying to see what was behind.

“I believe you have good in your heart” she stammered, almost embarrassed.

“I believe that you have good in your heart also.”

“So do you have an ability to see through people?”

“I saw through Brazeedas as did Septimus.” Diolace stared into the distance, staring at Septimus who was a distance away.

“I blamed him for all those years, I thought he had a bad, almost evil heart.”

“He has anything but an evil heart”

“I know, I know.” Diolace again stared into Goliaths eyes as he did hers, only this time, Diolace thought she saw something more.

“You aren’t just a man with a dream, you are a man with a dream who can be bothered to make it happen.”

“What is the world without ambition?”

“One that could be lost to anyone!” Diolace and Goliath begin to laugh, and as Diolace stared into the distance to see where Septimus had got to, she realised that she may have found the love of her life, which she once hated. Goliath felt the same, ad he gently stroked her cheek, as if to talk to her, but as if not to talk to her. She turned her head sharply as if she knew what he was saying.

“Goliath, will I ever be able to understand you?” Diolace and Goliath saw something in each other, and as they leaned closer, closer to each other, that they saw the life and love within each other’s close eyes…
