Dry Respite

Flipper shaking, tentatively making his way to the mark, hoisting the crossbow over one shoulder, Larry took aim from within the Keep’s practice ground, at the desert sprite zip-zapping around within the vast Keep’s courtyard’s walls, as it attempted to gain sufficient traction in order to make good its escape.
