The tree stood tall, stark and dead against the sky. Branches easily crack off some of the branches.

“That is what we are looking for, a rampike,” Old Emrys’ voice was firm. “A tree that’s life was ended violently.”

“That’s what’s needed, a tree’s corpse?” Derwyn was skeptical.

“It and your own blood to revive it.”

“And that will make a powerful wand?”

“Yes.”

Emrys’ fingers bit into Derwyn’s arm. There wasn’t time to scream, only a gurgle of red life bubbling between lips.

“Blood to feed. bringing life. Power to wand from branch’s knife.”

Alive the wood glowed ominously.
