On the Edge is a new series of short stories written by Joshua Wieczorek.
Becoming the Victor
There she stood overlooking the valley, sword drawn dripping with blood. She had just spent the night in literally the fight of her life. It took all she had to get where she was—on the mountain top. The evil ones had gotten to her village, they had brainwashed them all, even her family. When she wouldn’t accept what she saw as truth, everyone, even her family turned fought against her—it was all she could do to remain steadfast in the truth—she was the only one left in the village that would not submit to the overpowering authority.
