LAST AMAZON ATTACK
Quietly, from her
hiding-place Ariana watched how town she had once called home burned. She heard
the victorious shouts from men throwing torches to building what once had been
Temple of Artemis...Temple of her goddess.
She were proud warrioress,
born as such...She didn't have tears, otherwise she would have cried herself
till death, watching this awful sight. The young amazon warrior dropped on her
knees and screamed in pain and anger. "Father Ares! Watch our city burn!
Watch my sisters whom believed in your word die! ...Does blood of my sisters
satisfy your thirst even for a day??" First time in her short life, she
nothing, appeared white deer and it spoke to her. "Sister of Artemis. Your
homeland is no more..." before the deer could continue, she smirked and
answered "Tell me something I don’t know..." The deer laid down and
watched the blonde warrioress with weird big brown eyes what had more
intelligence than even eyes of most humans.
forgot your people. But greed of male-kind were too much for her to
what shall I do now?"
"You are the
last of amazons. It's up to you to find your way in this world."
The deer studied her
laws...I must do my best to revenge death of my sisters"
The deer bowed its
"You do what
you must. Your honor shall be remembered. The army what attacked Themiscyra has
put out camps around it on three sides. Artemis shall bless you with gift of
night walk. At night you may walk unseen but at day you are vulnerable."
She bowed in front
of the deer before it disappeared. Then, she put her bow over her shoulder and
grabbed her spear, moving in woods. After short walk, she moved on tree like
squirrel and watched camp fires burn not so far a way. Then she jumped from
tree to another faster than many eyes could see and suddenly she were closer to
Her name was
Penthulesia. Yesterday she had been guards of her queen. Now prisoner like
hundreds of others in the camp...But what was this? ...song of a bird she had
never heard before but what she knew. It was language what amazonian hunters
used, so they won’t scare away animals...it said "Night shall darken and
end will come to enemies of Artemis."
Her eyes widened.
The message came from woods...not from the cages. Penthulesia knelt down and
let out soft song of crow. "Who is our sister who is still free?" and
after moment came answer "Ariana...Toxo-polemestria (The Archer)"
Penthulesia's eyes widened. One amazon in woods would be enough to match ten
warriors in open...but Toxo-polemestrias would match twenty at nights. After
while came question "How many of adelphes (sisters) are prisoned
there?" After short counting she could answer "twenty on this one, birds
sing of more in other camps"
blue-headed arrows fled on camp fires and the fires faded off. The men stood
and lift up their swords just to fell down as three arrows came from darkness
and hit all three of them same time. Next arrow hit the rope holding door of
their cage and they got free. Penthulesia grabbed sword from the guard she
knocked down and led the amazons off from cage. Those who could fight, fought
and those who could walk, helped those who couldn’t.
Ariana fled from
tree to tree like squirrel. Making herself seem invisible to those trying to
find her. "Amazons!! Amazons everywhere!!" she heard screams as men
one after another felt on ground by her arrows. New kind of joy and hope filled
her heart. She was not last of Amazons! Only thing she would have to do is get
her sisters away from here. Ariana saw her sisters fighting their way from
cages and shoot load of arrows on the males threatening her sisters and jumped
down from the tree, running to join them.
Her last troop prepared
for fight. Eulogy of the gods, the prays, use of sacred poisons, meditation and
the ritual dance makes everyone to a condition of the battle ecstasy. And after
this preparations to the attack, they are literally has sent on the enemy fire
of this energy of destruction. With a cloud of arrows, they promptly moved to
the centre of enemy army. There, behind the lines of the guards, was the place
of the proud Asian warlord. And any arrow flying to enemy side found there the
The Persian camp was
warned - Asian barbarians run to the middle of camp, they took their weapons
and hold the position around the tent of the Great Persian King. Where their
commanders and chiefs trying to keep the defense. The words of their orders and
commands flew over the lines of spears and shields...
"Hold the position!" "We are under attack!"
And after that,
arrows fall down from the darkness on the lines of these defenders. "To
arms!" the King screamed and gathered all of his twenty guards around him.
"Where is rest of us??" he screamed now more scared than angry.
"All dead or ran off, my lord!" and in same cavalry of females on
leather armors came from shadows.
"I am Ariana,
the Archer... Surrender or die." came voice from front of them. The King
of Asia thought for moment, looking at his barbarians who looked back at him,
faces begging. His face went on insane smile and lifted up his sword.
"Never!" and in same the amazons attacked...
… But more terrible
than anything was this cavalry attack and hand-to-hand fight, after that. Where
nobody have mercy to no one. The swords - sharp like razors, scattering and cuts the enemy bodies. And many, who were
under attack, had no time even to understand, that their muscular male torsos
are split on a parts by promptly attack of the rest of women-warriors - who
like the furious female demons having destroyed the elite of their army, and
were already behind of them, in a depth of their lines. Even when the head of
the warlord has fall from his shoulders, and rolling down with the amazed eyes,
not have time enough to realize, that the fight was finished during few
When the army lost
their king and his commanding officers, they run away from the battle field...
The attack was like a lightning stroke, like a
burst of light from sunset. It was the shock for the enemy. And the doom of
men. Other work was done by the infantry of amazons - the bravery women with
the big round shields and long spears – they moved by a trace of the attacking
troops. And the amazon troop, without any attention to all what happening now
on the battlefield, ride with the proud faces of the angels of revenge to the
shore. Their long hair flying on a wind like their victorious banners. Their
light, translucent clothes seized by belts, opened their naked, beautiful,
brawny hips and bodies, and the bronze plates (shining on the left breast of
everyone), reflects the beams of the bright rising sun. And they sang the hymn
of a victory by their young voices of the furious battle angels...
speech to her amazons.
Sisters of Artemis, Daughters
of Ares and Harmony. Our homelands are no more! We shall take the ships of dead
invaders and sail in island of Cyprus what Artemis has pointed out for us and
there we shall build our new Realm! These lands were not for us. We not only
aimed to be equal to males, but supreme them always in any time and space is
our Faith. Centuries our race lived in these lands in peace, and ruled in Asia,
till the time when the heroes of Greece and Asian kings dares to fight against
We defeated them in
the many battles and offered peace to the mightiest son of Zeus, but Hercules
took the girdle of our Queen, though it was a gift to her from the war god,
Ares, and sailed back to Greece with the rest of his army of heroes.
Then the male-kings
from all tribes of Asia did not accept our rule and joined together to destroy
us again. Because of their opinion on that women should not lead. Women should
not fight. Women should not stay free... But we have proved them wrong! In their great
victory they lost their twice as large army as ours and only got half of ours!
We never wanted this war...But in name of Artemis we ended it!
Long life the amazons!!! We fought and we won, we'll
fighting and we'll win!
