The Huntsmen's Mistakes

It was his fault, his fault that the witch died. It was his fault that Snow turned evil...Not he must set things right, he must save the village from their new evil queen, even if that costs him his own life.


5. The Race


It was a race against time. Snow wanted to kill the witch, I wanted to save her. Time seemed to slow the more I ran, the more it slowed. Hours, days, years seemed to pass until I finally reached the castle. As I neared the castles doors I noticed a small difference, the door was slightly ajar. I was to late, Snow was already with the Queen.

"Oh no." the door opened with a creak revealing little light in the dark room. "My Queen?" I asked my voice quavering.

"Huntsmen, where is Snow?"

Joy filled me "My Queen!"

"What is it, speak before I have your head!"

"Oh yes um well...Snow was on her way to have you...have you killed I believe. So I chased her here and it would seem that I beet her here. It is rather odd though she is a quick little thing and she did get a head start...but I won." The Queen began to laugh and laugh and laugh some more. "What is it milady?"

"Oh Huntsmen you do make me laugh." her once sweet demanding voice turned soft and little...I knew that voice.


"Bravo Huntsmen!" she laughed some more "Bravo." The lights turned on, Snow sat in the throne.

I narrowed my eyes "The throne is only for a real Queen, Snow."

"Oh that does have a nice ring to it, Queen Snow." she lifted the mirror to her face "What do you think?" she asked it.

"You shall be called Queen in all lands, Queen Snow sounds fitting for you."

"Stop feeding her lies!"

They both turned to me, well at least Snow turned the mirror towards me.

"Tsk." the mirror said "I thought you said he was handsome."

Snow laughed "I bet you could work your magic on him, he does have a few kinks."

"What? What are you two talking about?"

They both looked at me once more, "You are to be my King Huntsmen."

"What?! My marry you? Ha! Not in a million years Snow."

"I would listen to your new Queen we would not want your old one to die now would we? That would result in your own death as well, would it not?" the mirror said. This mirror knew what he was talking about, if the Queen died, then I would go with her.

Man, these guys play dirty. "What have you done with her!? Tell me now or I'll-"

"Or you'll what? Kill me? I am a magical mirror, all you have is a sword. A sword can not hurt me nor can it kill me or damage me in any way what so ever." He was right, there was nothing I could do to hurt him not unless I had magic. "Just think on the bright side, you are both the same age."

I clenched my fists at my side, what could I do?

Mistake #4: I could not beat Snow to the castle...
