Summary: Can love and a promise triumph over death? I’ll die for you, or with you. When Madan swore a sword oath to Serrai he was eight years old. He kept his promise while they grew to manhood and took their respective positions as king and general, even when it seemed that he was the only one fated to love, deeply and devotedly. Serrai never declared his feelings, but his love for Madan was just as fierce. And quietly, in his heart, he swore his own sword oath: to die with Madan. Until a battlefield death leaves both oaths broken, and two men fighting for a future that doesn’t see them forever parted. An m/m fantasy short story proving that love can win an argument with fate.
