A Day in the Life of a Highland Warrior Living in Contemporary Times
I, Cearnach MacNeill, am named such as Cearnach means victorious in Gaelic. And aye, I live up to my name to fight for what’s good and right, for my Highland wolf pack and the MacNeill clan. And for the bonny lass who has stolen my heart, Elaine Hawthorn, and any who suffer the abuse of others.
Is there nothing more sacred than taking care of those you love? Nay. I will share with you that I once nearly drowned as a wee lad and a bonny lass saved me. Aye. ‘Tis true. I will forever be in her debt and it is not a bad thing at all. A man can be strong in battle strength, but can also show another side of him that is meant to be caring and loving. More recently, a lass stepped in between me and a rogue I would have fought, blade to blade. But the lass wished to protect me and the sanctity of the wedding in progress and how could I find fault in that?
Yet it is my place in life as second in command of a gray wolf pack and the MacNeill clan of Argent Castle to protect those who need protecting. I cannot tell you how much anger I had to eat when I witnessed such a happening. But the wee lass proudly left the church, dragging me, a Highland warrior of auld! out of the church to diffuse the situation.
It gets worse, I tell you. Sometimes a man has to fight a man’s battle. Or…wolf as it were. Either with my handy claymore in hand, or wearing my wolf coat, I will put my enemies down like the dogs they are.
But always, the urge to fight has to be tempered with the knowledge the one’s you protect will not be harmed by a need to battle with your enemy. There in shows a man’s real strength. When he can back down to keep others safe.
In battle strengths I handle a claymore sword well and beyond that, my sgian dubh, a single-edge bladed knife. But when fighting wolf to wolf, my size, agility, and cunning are enough to help me win against my enemies.
After ridding the world of the kind of men who are a pox on mankind, it is time to truly show a man’s strength. Loving a lass.
