Chapter Four of What Lay Beyond the Woods

Guys!!! I FINALLY wrote chapter four!!!!!!!!!! This calls for a celebration! Well, let’s just jump straight into it and don’t forget to let me know about your thoughts below in the comments! What you liked, what you thought could be better, etc.

CHAPTER FOUR
The first thing I noticed was the keys dangling by Calvin’s belt. I moved the sword in my hand’s blade to point directly at Calvin Talyor’s heart. He took a small step back.
“Get me out of here, and I’ll spare your life,” I growled, redoubling my grip on the weapon’s handle.
Calvin held his hands up. “So when did you start threatening people’s lives? I didn’t think you had killing in you.”
I moved the blade closer to him. “Are you going to get me out or do I need to end this.”
He widened his eyes as if he suddenly realized I wasn’t teasing. My blade was a half inch away from ending his life, why would I be teasing? He swallowed hard. “Fine.”
I lowered my weapon, but kept it close enough that if this was a trick, I could stop him. Calvin led me to the door, constantly looking over his shoulder. I might’ve been a thief, but when I gave someone my word, I kept it. He should know me better than that.
Outside the room, I found a cold, lonely stone hallway. I shivered but didn’t take my eyes off of Calvin. A bad feeling gnawed at my gut. I always trust my gut. We moved down the hall and took a few twists and turns until we came across a wooden door bolted shut. My heart tripled its speed. My escape was a twist of a door knob and a race across the grounds away. I had outsmarted Calvin!
He stood off to the side, making the path to the door clear for me. I didn’t like turning my back on him, but I was almost out. I moved closer to the door but stopped when my hand was just inches from throwing it open. A single thought floated across my mind. Where was Little John?
I turned back to Calvin, and that was when I saw him. A bruly guard stood above me, sword aimed for the kill. My kill. I ducked and rolled out of the way just as the man’s sword drove downward. It slammed against the stones. I rose and prepared my stance for a fight. Taking a quick scan around the room, I didn’t spot Calvin.
I grunted, refocusing on the battle. Calvin outmaneuvered me. Again.
The guard came at me. I defend every strike he sent my way. He moved forward. I darted to the left. He moved too slow for me. Our swords clashed together again. The sound of it deafened my ears and set my heart racing. Faster. Harder. With every clang as steel met steel, I looked to the door.
Sweat beaded off my brow. The guard’s breathing grew deep. Heavy. He moved again. I reflected the blow. I just had to keep him moving. Eventually, he should lose his energy, move slower to avoid my strikes.
I let out a frustrated growl and dug my feet into the ground. I had to finish this now before I started to move slower. My arms felt heavy. It was a fight to keep moving. I raced forward, sword outstretched. Our weapons collided. I gritted my teeth together, drew back, and drove my sword forward. He deflected my attack. We both drew back. I shook my stiff arms as he rubbed his neck. It was like we had a silent agreement to give the other opponent a small break.
This guard was skilled with his weapon. He’d be a great member to have a part of my band of merry men. I opened my mouth right as the door was thrown open.
Little John and Will Scarlet stood in the entry way with tight frowns and clenched fists. I only flashed them a subtle nod before turning back to my opponent who looked between the two men and me. He dropped his sword as Little John drew his own blade, throwing up his hands in surrender. I smirked.
“Well, done, Little John,” I moved over to him and clapped him on the back. Scarlet drew his own weapon from its leather scabbard. The guard took a couple steps back before turning and dashing out of there. It was only a matter of time before he gathered his friends and came back to finish the fight.
“Let’s get out of here,” Little John said, nodding to the door.
I looked back down the hallway Calvin led me down. “How did you know to find me here?”
“After they knocked you out, I was basically forgotten. It was easy to get away. I followed you and searched around for a back way in.” He handed me my sword in its scabbard, my bow with its quiver of arrows, and my faithful horn. “You left these behind. I blew the horn and Scarlet came to aid me.”
I cradled the items like they were gold. I didn’t value anything else in this world more. I strapped the sword’s belt back around my waist and slung the arrow and its quivers on my back. I felt like I was placing on a suit of armor. Every part was vital. Every moment was treasured.
Scarlet guided us out and across the grounds. Guards weren’t watching this back exit. We were able to sneak to the stables and convince a stable boy to saddle up three horses. When he questioned who we were, I responded that I was a friend of the sheriff. An alarm was sounded because of my escape. Me and my men climbed on our horses and dashed to the woods in the back. We were gone before anyone could discover which way we went. I led my men deep into the woods – my domain, my home. We didn’t stop until we neared a stream. Scarlet tended to the horses while Little John and me moved a few feet away to talk.
“I’ve got the plans,” he said, handing me the parchment I gave the monk.
I unrolled it and studied the scrawled notes the monk had scribbled out next to the foreign words. -I squinted.
“What does it say, Robyn?” Little John leaned over my shoulder.
My heart sank as I finally made out the words. I lowered the parchment, my one path to stopping the assasination attempt fading away. And my hope went with it.
“Robyn?” Little John pressed again.
I couldn’t meet his eyes. I fumbled with the edges of the parchment, studied my callous hands, and did anything to avoid him. I knew he didn’t have the same wish that I did – knew he only followed me because it was my wish. But I wanted to prove to everyone – even him – that I was more than a thief. That I was more than just Robyn Hood.
“The monk said he couldn’t’ read the language.”
“Then we’ll find someone who can.”
I lifted my head and stared straight into this bright blue eyes. They held a fire to them that always amazed me. They never failed to find me, to see me. They had followed me since I first became an outlaw. They had never left my side since then.
“Did he give you a country it’s from?” Little John asked.
I nodded. “Leulnia.”
He shook his head. “Never heard of it.”
“I think it’s a small country to the south. I met someone once who used to live there. He said it was a dying country.”
“I think we know where to go next.”
“Are you sure you still want to do this?” I brushed a stray piece of brown hair from out of my eyes.
“Robyn Hood, I have followed you since you first invited me to join your band. Every journey you’ve gone down, I have walked alongside you. I don’t plan to break my record now.” He winked. “Besides. Who will be your knight?”
I playfully hit his shoulder. “The day I need a knight to save me will be the saddest day of my life.” But from the pit in my stomach, I feared that day was just around the corner.

    That. Was. AWESOME!!!!!!!! I love it!!!! All the unknown things, all the things we still have to find out, its the perfect combination of questions and answers!!!!!!! Your are just SOOOOOOOOOOOO talented!!!!!!!!!
    The only thing I noticed is that in chapter 3, two guards are with Calvin when he enters the room, but in this one, it seems there’s only one guard with him. I wasn’t sure if that was on purpose or not.
    You did a FATABULOUS job!!!!!!!!!!! *throws party streamers and confetti* *hands you a piece cake*

    • Issabelle

      Okay, actually I have a funny story about that. When I sat down to write chapter four Saturday it had been a while since I wrote three and didn’t remember much of what happened. I thought Calvin had a few guards with him but wasn’t sure. And I didn’t feel like reading back through what I’d already written (XD), so I was like well, someone like Jane will point out if there was actually supposed to be some other guards. Soo, THANK YOU for pointing that out!!!!!!
      Aww, THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!! *grabs the piece of cake and eat it* YUM!! DELICIOUS!!!!!!!! XD

  • Joy Caroline

    Congrats on finishing this chapter! I’m glad you shared it with us, because I really enjoy reading them. 🙂

    First, I want to say that I can’t believe I haven’t mentioned this before, but I LOVE how you’re really getting creative with this whole story concept. Robyn isn’t the stereotypical female protagonist we’ve all seen – the plain, anxious girl who’s “not like the other girls.” I really like how you’re getting away from stereotype, which I find to be very annoying in novels, and giving your protagonist a unique personality. It’s refreshing to see characters like Robyn. I noticed that about Colin, too – that he was a unique character. I think that’s definitely one of your strengths!

    With that said, it is still a little hard for me to really make a connection with Robyn and care about her for a reason other than she’s the heroine. I feel like sometimes we cheer for characters just because we’re supposed to, you know? I don’t know Robyn that well because we haven’t seen any of her thoughts or a vulnerable side of hers – we’ve just seen her in action. If you’re struggling with getting to know her, you could try writing out an interview. Start out with a question like, “When you were a child, how did your family treat you?” or any other question that comes to your mind. I just find that delving deep into a character’s childhood can really help you understand the character, because everything starts in the childhood. Or you could write an extra scene to the novel through a poem or short story. The scene doesn’t have to be included in the book, but it could help you explore Robyn’s thoughts and find her vulnerabilities or soft side. I find that doing this with characters I want to understand better is really helpful. You don’t feel the pressure of choosing the right words because the scene won’t be in your book, so you allow yourself to write freely.

    Anyways, it’s time to end this comment 😂 But I think this story is going to get more awesome the more time you spend in Robyn’s world. And girl, the graphics are AMAZING. AMAZING. They always turn out so beautiful!! You must not be lazy like me. I admire that, LOL.

    • Issabelle

      THANK YOU, JC!!!!!!!! Aww, I’m SOOOOOO GLAD to hear that!!!!!!!! <33 I'm glad I get to share it with you too!!!!!

      OH MY GOODNESS, GIRL!!!!!!! THANK YOU!!!!!!!!! Yeah, I find sterotypes like that pretty annoying as well. It gets dull after a while. I'm SUPER GLAD you think that!!!!!! I like interesting and unique characters so maybe that's why. Truth is, I didn't purposefully do that with Robyn. I didn't even think about doing that until now that you've mentioned something. XD I hope that is a strength, 'cause I think I've got too many weaknesses. XD But THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!

      Yeah, I know exactly what you mean!!!!! THANK YOU for pointing out that it's still not changing! I can't say I'm super surprised, though. For some strange reason, when I write my first drafts my characters just don't always shine out like I want them to, you know. I wonder if writing that first draft is when I finally get to understand them. To know their strengths and weaknesses. To see how they handle situations. It's like my chance to sit in their world and see things through their eyes. And then in later drafts I can start showing what I'm learning. Does that just sound weird? Anyway, THANK YOU SOOOOOOOO MUCH for the ideas!!!!!!!! They're SUPER GREAT!!! And I'll TOTALLY work on making Robyn a little more relatable and someone we all wanna root for!!!!

      Haha, that's okay!! I LOVE long comments. I mean, we all know I WRITE lengthy comments, so that probably explains a lot. XD Aww, I TOTALLY hope so!!!!!!! THANK YOU SOOOOOOOOO MUCH!!!!!!!!!!! Really? That means a LOT!!!!! Haha, actually I can be VERY lazy, but not so much when I'm working on my graphics. I just enjoy it a lot!!!!!!!! LOL!!!!

      • Joy Caroline

        Oh yes, so relatable! Don’t feel pressure to have everything figured out the first draft, you can always fix that later 🙂 Very few things are perfect in first drafts. I know mine are generally a mess!

        • Issabelle

          That’s SUPER TRUE!!!!! Most of the time, I can keep my first drafts a little neat but they still need some serious edits in later drafts!!!!!!! 🙂 But I’m VERY APPRECIATIVE of all your awesome advice!!!!!!!!!!! Haha, I think just about everyone’s are that way to different levels!!!!! But I think you’re doing A M A Z I N G with TAS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I READ ALL OF THE CHAPTERS.
    I am so involved. I do care about Robyn even though it is vague about what she cares about, which key to a character mattering to a reader. I think the first chapter was the best one in showing both internal and external conflict. So I do agree with Joy Caroline with, as I put it, bringing in the internal conflict more. We need to know more about why it matters so much to her. But I don’t think your character is flat in any way and I don’t feel disconnected from her and her problems.
    I don’t have much tips for fight scenes, but the one thing I felt was unrealistic was how Robyn fought a big man without any problems. As she is a woman, I’m guessing average size, even if she is really skilled, she still would not any disadvantages against a man who is skilled and very strong from his size. I just feel she should struggle against him more than the normal things and creatively get the upper hand rather than the normal way as it is with men.
    Jane did point out that there was one guard, but what I am wondering is, “Where did they go?” They walked into the cell with Calvin, right, but then disappeared from scene when she drew the sword on him? If they were still in the cell, they would have reacted right as she drew the sword on him. And I don’t remember them walking out either, so it is all very vague where these guards, or guard, were at that time.
    Also I am questioning why Calvin is confused about her threatening to kill him when she killed some of his men back in chapter 2. He should know by now that she is a killer.
    Anyway, that’s it for me on feedback.
    I LOVE this story, can’t wait for more and all of the graphics are beautiful. <3

    • Issabelle

      WHOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!! YESSSS!!!!! THAT’S AWESOME!!!!!
      YES!!! I’m SUPER HAPPY to hear that!!!! Oooh, okay!! I’ll try harder to get more of that internal conflict to show!! Good news is that I’m starting to understand her a bit more so maybe things will get better in later chapters!! *crosses fingers* That’s GREAT to know that she’s not flat just needs a bit more added to her!!!!!!!!!!!

      Hmmm…you’re actually VERY right about that! I didn’t think about it but I L O V E the idea so I’ll TOTALLY work some things out to make it more realistic!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Plus it’d make the victory that much more amazing if she had to work for it!!!!!!!
      Haha, yeah, I had forgotten about those two guards being there!! *sheepish grin* It’d be a few weeks since I wrote chapter two and I didn’t feel like rereading what I had, so that’ll explain their sudden disappearance!!!! They were supposed to be in the room but now I think I’m gonna cut them out.
      That’s actually got some other reasons I can’t actually say. But maybe I should give a few more hints that he has a perfectly logical reason!! Well, THANK YOU SOOO MUCH for all of this valuable feedback!!!!!!!!!!! WHOOOO!!!!!!!!!!! More is on the way!! Now I’ve just gotta go write the next chapter!!!!!!! Aww, THANK YOU SOOOOO MUCH!!!!! <33

      • Ribbon Ash

        I actually really sad I finish them so quickly. 🙁 I remember thinking one time of how I wanted to read more about Robyn but then I realised I can’t. *cries*

        Interesting story here, at first I thought she was wrong because I felt connected with her but then I thought about it and could see that she had a point. But also it is a first draft and it is okay for the character, especially with everything unplanned, to not have enough internal conflict. You’re doing really well. 😀

        Oh, good, I’m glad you love the idea! I was kinda of worry you wouldn’t like me suggesting it. YESS, this is why I think women fighting can be so much more fulfilling and interesting than men because they do have to work harder to get a victory.
        Haha, the guards are everywhere and nowhere! That’s sounds like a good idea! That way it doesn’t changed what happened at the end of 3 and at the beginning of 4.
        Hmmm, I can see why he might say it but at the same time I don’t see why he wouldn’t take her seriously after deaths of his men. So I think it would make sense to show anger instead of confusion.
        This is the part that got me the most confused:

        ” He widened his eyes as if he suddenly realized I wasn’t teasing. My blade was a half inch away from ending his life, why would I be teasing? He swallowed hard. “Fine.” ”

        Not this part. This part could easily make sense to me if the next part above didn’t show confusion or surprise from him when he must have notice her killing people.

        Calvin held his hands up. “So when did you start threatening people’s lives? I didn’t think you had killing in you.”

        If it was just about her killing him, he needs to be specific that it is about him and not just about general people. Then it would make sense why he was confused that she was serious about killing him. Otherwise she must have not killed anyone like she thought. Which also doesn’t make sense.

        YAY, I need more!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
        (Also I updated my blog yesterday….)

        • Issabelle

          Aww, really? That’s actually good news!!! I mean, not so much for you but it is for me!!!! I should probably get started on the fifth chapter soon. 🤔

          Haha, yea that is an interesting story!!!!!! Phew, that’s good!!!! But I’m gonna still tell her to get some more internal conflict going on. XD Though, did I mention she’s as bad as listening to me as Colin is? THANK YOU!!!!!!!! 🙂

          Oh, no, I’m REALLY GLAD you suggested it!!!!!!!!! It’s a GREAT IDEA!!! YESS!!!! I really like it when the story goes that way!!!!!!! It is sooo much more fulfilling!!!
          LOL!! That is very true!!!! Even I’m getting confused. XD Yea, I agree!!!!!!!!

          Aaah, I see what you’re saying. Yeah, I didn’t notice it at first but you’re actually very right. That’s kind of weird when he just saw her killing people. XD I’m TOTALLY gonna change that around a bit!!! THANK YOU for explaining that to me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

          WHOOO!!!!!!! <33 <33
          (Ooooh, yea!! I saw it Tuesday!! I L O V E IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! All the new designs, it's just sooo AWESOME!!!!! And I saw the graphic I had made for you and I saw Smoke's graphic!!!!! *pumps fist in the air* I haven't got the time to do a ton of looking around yet but I can't wait until I can!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

          • Ribbon Ash

            FIFTH CHAPTER. *all the heart-eyes*

            Haha, no, you haven’t mentioned that to me. Have fun with your unwilling-to-listen character! XD I hope she does listen to you about this. It is important to have readers’ care 100% and not have them questioning why they should care about her.

            Yay, I’m really glad to hear that. 😀

            No problem!!

            (Aww, I’m so glad you liked the new design!!!!!!! I am really pleased with myself. 🙂 YESS, I’m so happy you saw those!!!!!!! Maybe you could leave comments to tell how you think about them on my blog? Also I did a Blossom collage too, if you haven’t seen that yet! That’s fine! Whenever you have time! I know all too well of not having time to look at blogs properly 🙁 Also I updated all pages except for writing projects one.)

            • Issabelle

              WHOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!! <33

              Haha, well, I guess I have now!!!!!! LOL!!!! I will try, but it's not as easy as you'd think. XD Yeah, she better!!!! Oh, YES!! I completely agree with you on that one!!!!!!! 100%

              YAY!!!!!!!!!!!! 🙂

              Ooooh, yea, you should TOTALLY be!!! It's A W E S O M E!!!!!!!!!!!! TOTALLY!!!! I'll go head over there right now and leave some comments!!! Oooh, no I haven't seen that one yet!!!!!! Haha, yea, that's a pretty sad thing! Especially, 'cause I love just finding new blogs and checking their site out. The few moments I have the time, that is. XD Okay!!! I'll have to go read them!!!!!!! <3

  • Jen

    YAY! The next chapter! 😀 Love it! *gasp* They’re going to another country! Oooh! I love it when stories take place in multiple places. (Not that I don’t like it when they don’t. 😉 ) The fight scene was really good, and I could imagine everything well. <3 This chapter was really good!!!!!

    I do have a few critiques, but they're not terrible! I noticed a few typos and a few words that seemed out of place, like "The first thing I noticed was the keys" I think "were" should be used since "keys" is plural? And this sentence really made me stumble, "I moved the sword in my hand’s blade to point directly at Calvin". Did you mean she moved the sword to where the blade was pointed at Calvin? I think you maybe missed a comma or something between "hand's" and "blade" because how I read it made it sound like "I moved the sword in my hand's blade// to point directly at Calvin" instead of "I moved the sword in my hand's, blade to point directly at Calvin". You called the guard "bruly"? I think you meant "burly"? (Also, if you'd rather I not point out specific typos just say so! I don't want to seem over-critiquing. 🙂 ) I think "while Little John and me" should be "Little John and I" unless her saying it that way is a character trait. I also wondered why Little John was forgotten by the Sheriff's men if he's Robyn's right-hand man? Is it not well known? Or did Calvin just want Robyn and told his men to leave anyone else alone?

    I LOVE THAT GRAPHIC!!!!! And that ending really makes me want to read the next chapter!!!! ^_^ <3

    • Issabelle

      YEA!!!! THE NEXT CHAPTER!!!!!! 🙂 YAY!!! THANK YOU SOOO MUCH!!!!! ^_^ YES!! Mainly ’cause I know literally nothing about medieval England and work much better in places I create! YEA!!!! I LOVE when stories are in multiple places too!!!! AWESOME!!!!! That’s a HUGE relief!! 🙂

      Oooh, yes, THANK YOU SOOO MUCH for this!!!!! I’m the worst at grammar so please, feel free to point them out ’cause I will most likely still miss it even after multiple rereads!!!!!!!!!!!!! You’re TOTALLY NOT being over-critiquing!!! I really want everyone’s honest feedback!!! 🙂 THANK YOU SOOOOOOOOOOOO MUCH!!!!!!! I will TOTALLY fix all of that!!! Oh, yeah, that was because Calvin only wanted Robyn…but now that you mention it, that’s still kind of weird. Hmm…I’m gonna change some of that!!!! THANKS!!!!! <33

      Aww, THANK YOU SOOO MUCH!!!!! <33 I'm sooo glad! WHOOO!!!!! YEA!!!! Chapter five here we come! *hurrying off to go write it* XD

    Hi Issabelle! (great seeing you on KP!)

    I just finished reading your fourth chapter. It was good. I like how the plot is moving forward nicely and how you added shorter sentences to increase the tension.

    I agree with Joy Caroline’s points on first drafts being messy and you don’t have to figure everything out just yet. If it helps, jot down some notes when you get inspiration for your character’s arc, plot structure, etc. Then when you’re ready for the second draft, you can incorporate your notes.

    The only two things that stood out to me were this line “He dropped his sword as Little John drew his own blade, throwing up his hands in surrender.” I was a bit confused as to who threw their hands up (the bad guy or Little John?).
    And the second, why were there no guards at the exit? Calvin seems smart, so I was a bit unsure why he would leave the back door unguarded.

    All in all, you’re doing great! Keep at it! 🙂

    • Issabelle

      Heeellllooo, Lily!!!! (IKR!!! Now I’ve got more options on where to talk your ears off!! XDD Though, really, it’s SUPER AWESOME seeing you around KP!)

      WHOOOO!!!!!!! That’s A W E S O M E!!!!!! YAY!! THANK YOU SOOOO MUCH!!!!! I’m sooo happy to hear!! And that’s really great that you think the shorter sentences increase tension, ’cause I had always wondered if they did but didn’t know if that was just me thinking that. XD

      Phew!! That’s SUPER GOOD to know!! My first drafts can turn out really neat sometimes but they are ALWAYS in need of a second one! Oooh, GREAT IDEA!!!! THANK YOU!!!!!!!! <33

      Aaah, yes, I see what you mean on both of those points! I TOTALLY see now how confusing that one sentence came out. Annnddd that's actually a REALLY good point about Calvin. That doesn't seem anything like him. *glaring at Calvin for not telling me that sooner* XDD THANK YOU SOO MUCH for pointing all of this out!!!!!!!!!!!!! <33

      THANK YOU, GIRL!!!!!!!! 🙂 <33 And THANK YOU for taking the time to read this story and give me feedback and thoughts! It means A LOT to me!
