the same thing Traveling to Spain Artos buys great war horses who will father the steeds of his cavalryIt was on the third day that as I pushed my way through the crowd at the far end of the sale ground with Flavian beside me I found the best horse that I had seen yet I suppose he had been brought in late when the best of the others were gone He was a full black black as a rook s wing There are bad horses among the black than any other color but a good black is own brother to Bucephalus This was a good black standing a clear sixteen hands at the shoulder with a good broad head and high crest power in every line of him and fire in his heart and loins to beget some of his own kind But as I stopped to examine him closely I saw his eyes I would have turned away but the man in charge of him a bowlegged individual with small twinkling eyes and a lipless gash for a mouth stayed me with a touch on my arm You ll not see a better horse than this in Narbo Martius this year my lord Hai Bedwyr the chieftain would see the Black One s paces that he may judge of his mettle said the dealer and I did not contradict him because of all foolish reasons I wanted to see how this young man with the surprising Celtic name handled such a horseThe horse was of course already bitted and bridled but not saddled The boy swept me a swift low bow and turning set his hands on the great brute s shoulders and next instant was astride the glossy back and catching the reins out of the dealer s hands as the great brute began to dance and snort and sidle swung him out onto the open trampled turf Watching him as he put the Black One through his paces I found myself judging the rider s mettle as well as the horse s noting how lightly he handled the savage wolf bit while never for one instant losing the control and the way the Black One himself who I was very sure would have been a plunging fury with almost any other man on his back not only answered to his authority but seemed to enter into the thing with him as they wheeled and circled and changed paces and came sweeping in a cloud of dust around the full circle of the open space so that when at last they came to a trampling halt before me I could have sworn that the horse as well as the man was laughing The Saxons advance into a battle fieldFar along our own line I heard the shout of command and our spearmen yelping their own short sharp battle cry were running forward down the hill The few Saxon archers on the flank unable to see where our bowmen loosed from under cover turned their own short deadly arrows against the spears and the moment had come to slip the hounds Sound me the charge The man beside me set the great horn to his lips and winded the one long blast that set the echoes flying like startled birds all up and down the valley From away to the left almost in the same instant Bedwyr s trumpeter took up the note a great shout rose from our men and both cavalry wings broke forward the spears that had been resting upright swinging down as one to the horizontal I crouched low into the saddle feet braced into my stirrups against the coming shock feeling through every fiber of my being the balance of the leveled spear against palm and fingers hearing the flying thunder of the suadron s hooves behind meWe took them on both flanks and at the full gallopThey had no chance to form the shield wall for the first moments of impact it was not battle as I counted battle but sheer red butchery But whatever evil may be cried against the Sea Wolves no man ever yet called their courage in uestion Somehow they closed and steadied their ranks they fought like heroes their archers stood like rocks though their numbers grew steadily fewer under dark hail of the long British war shafts and loosed their own arrows without pause into our ranks The house carls of the center held us with spear and seax long after the light throwing axes were spent their naked and stained berserkers flung themselves upon our
