Elanor did an elegant salute with her bastard sword. She was smiling with her lip but her eyes were calm as she tried to focus on the task at hand. It was heavily tempting to think about Helena whimpering in defeat, Elanor's sword pressed into her chest but she shouldn't get ahead of herself. Elanor turned and started walking away from Helena. Her back itched. Would the demon child actually walk the full ten steps? She only had tiny legs. Elanor was resolved to walk the full distance though. She couldn't afford to let Helena make any claims about foul play. After the tenth step she stopped and waited. She felt suddenly nervous. What if Helena's incompetence was just a massive act? She was sure Nicoletto would stop the duel before anyone got seriously hurt. At least she was pretty sure. Nicoletto was Helena's old master. Maybe this wasn't the best idea after all? It was too late to worry about that now however. With graceful poise she waited for Nicoletto's word to begin.
