H = 7, X = 11
"I canít," Danaka backed away.
Callisto walked up to her sister slowly, a big grin on her face. She pulled out a dagger and slit her sisterís throat.
Gabrielle watched, horrified, and Xena watched, prepared.
Callisto sat there and stared at her sister as she died.
Xena grabbed Gabrielleís arm and started to run. They ran the few yards away to Argo and Xena grabbed Gabrielle and threw her on Argo. She grunted and helped Xena get on the horse in front of her.
Callisto now realized what was going on, and she started to run towards the two. Argo was put at a canter, and Xena took a turn onto a bridge. When she reached the other side, she took a sword and started to cut and the ropes.
"Xena! Sheís a goddess! That wonít stop her!" Gabrielle called from the horse.
"It will stall her. Thatís all weíll need," Xena said, hurriedly working at the ropes. The next thing she knew, she was staring at Callisto.
"Xena! You waited for me! How nice!" Callisto started to cross the bridge. Xena cut one rope, and the bridge shook. Callisto grabbed the rope railing and hung on, her feet dangling in the air.
"Stop, Xena! This wonít stop me!" the goddess laughed, clutching on the rope tightly.
Xena cut the other rope, the bridge collapsing immediately, with Callisto falling with it.
"How long will that river hold her?" Gabrielle asked the warrior.
"About five minutes. Letís go," Xena said, getting back on Argo.
She put Argo to a gallop as they rode down the road, not knowing where or when Callisto would turn up next.
