Warning for gore and monsters.
"Under a Blood-Red Moon"
They say unicorns are immortal.
What they don't say is what it costs.
The mare hobbles down the road
under a blood-red moon. Her golden coat
is dulled to saffron by sweat and dust.
Two arrows still protrude from the wounds,
and below them, sword slashes mar her hide.
Her horn is broken to half its former size.
Wars between immortals can get ugly.
The unicorn places one cloven hoof
in front of the other. Her head bobs
up and down with each breath.
Despite her injuries, she keeps going.
She is bloody, but undefeated.
The vampires shall not prevail.
