The Wraith
Part 12

We used the stories to our advantage
Spreading and adding to them ourselves
We took every opportunity availed to us
To cause misfortune to the prince's brother
We intercepted supplies meant for the city
Intervened in the attempts of the soldiers to collect
On occasion we would even creep into the castle 
Our purpose being to keep abreast of the happenings
But while there, we would be sure to make our presence
There was a reward out for the return of the prince
And even larger one for the capture of The Wraith
We made it our mission to cause as much chaos as 
Until the prince was well enough to reclaim his throne
And he grew stronger every day
But he had been at the very door of death
And his recovery would yet take some time
