Four Brothers Go To War V

The eldest brother with his red stone was going to be a smith.
He lived. But his unlucky soul got snared, enthralled by Dame War. 

The smith’s boy joined a band of mercenaries and left that country for distant lands.


The family never saw him again.

His sweetheart gave birth to a son. 
Sensible girl, she took another man to father her son. Even so, the child grew up a rascal.
