Love and silver by OFFO Love and silver by OFFO
"Geralt skoczył. Skoczył jak bezwolna, zwolniona sprężyna. Każdy ruch, każdy krok jaki należało teraz wykonać, był jego naturą, był wyuczony, nieunikniony, automatyczny i śmiertelnie pewny. Trzy szybkie kroki. Trzeci, jak setki takich kroków przedtem, kończy się na lewą nogę, mocnym, zdecydowanym stąpnięciem. Skręt tułowia, ostre, zamaszyste cięcie. Zobaczył jej oczy. Nic już nie mogło się zmienić. Usłyszał głos. Nic. Krzyknął, by zagłuszyć słowo, które powtarzała. Nic nie mogło. Ciął.
Uderzył pewnie, jak setki razy przedtem, środkiem brzeszczotu, i natychmiast, kontynuując rytm ruchu, zrobił czwarty krok i półobrót. Klinga, pod koniec półobrotu już wolna, sunęła za nim, błyszcząc, wlokąc za sobą wachlarzyk czerwonych kropelek. Kruczoczarne włosy zafalowały, rozwiewając się, płynęły w powietrzu, płynęły, płynęły, płynęły...
Głowa upadła na żwir.
Potworów jest coraz mniej?"

Andrzej Sapkowski "Ziarno prawdy"

Viseena jeśli dobrze pamiętam... Chyba, że ją z kimś pomyliłam?
Podoba mi się wysunięcie jej na pierwszy plan poprzez rozmycie Geralta.
Trochę mi przeszkadza to, iż krew jest mało krwista, ale to ja - dla mnie wszystko musi być czerwone...

Sorry, I made a mistake in my first reply: The title of this short story is not "a gain of truth" but "A Grain of Truth". :ashamed: It is part of the collection named "The Last Wish".

Miała jeszcze cięcie przez środek klatki piersiowej ;P

Świetny pomysł i ładne wykonanie.
Wiele lat temu zilustrowałem to samo opowiadanie, trochę wcześniejszy moment, jak się na Geralta wydarła - aż mu klapki pospadały...

Sssstrasznie lubię te opowiadania, a w szczególności momenty jak "podkradł się do obozowiska głodny wilkołak, ale to Jaskier grał, więc posłuchał trochę i poszedł sobie...".

I have just found the English passage from the original translation (made by Danusia Stok):

"Geralt jumped. Every move he made, every step, was part of his nature: hard-learnt, automaticand lethally sure. Three quick steps, and the third, like a hundred such steps before, finishedon the left leg with a strong, firm stamp. A twist of his torso and a sharp, forceful cut. He sawher eyes. Nothing could change now. He heard the voice. Nothing. He yelled, to drown the word which she was repeating. Nothing could change. He cut.
He struck decisively, like hundreds of times before, with the centre of the blade, andimmediately, following the rhythm of the movement, took a fourth step and half a turn. The blade, freed by the half-turn, floated after him, shining, drawing a fan of red droplets in its wake. The streaming raven-black hair floated in the air, floated, floated, floated ...
The head fell onto the gravel.
There are fewer and fewer monsters?"

Andrzej Sapkowski, "A Grain of Truth"

I wish I could give you translation, but it is a short fragment of story by Andrzej Sapkowski, taken out from "The Witcher" saga. I know it was published in english too,but I cannot find it to put here translation that may satisfy anyone

It is the final scene in the shortstory "A Gain of Truth" when Geralt kills the bruxa Vereena. It's similar to "Beauty and the Beast" - only in "Sapkowski style", if you know what I mean ;)
I only have the German translation. Maybe it helps, too.

"Geralt sprang. Er sprang wie eine willenlos losgelassene Stahlfeder. Jede Bewegung, jeder Schritt, die jetzt zu tun waren, lagen ihm in der Natur, waren gelernt, unausweichlich, selbstverständlich und von tödlicher Sicherheit. Drei rasche Schritte. Der dritte, wie Hunderte solcher Schritte zuvor, endete auf dem linken Fuß mit festem, entschiedenem Auftreten. Eine Wendung des Körpers, ein schwerer, weit ausholender Hieb. Er sah ihre Augen. Nichts konnte sich mehr ändern. Er hörte die Stimme. Nichts. Er schrie, um das Wort zu übertönen, das sie wiederholte. Nichts konnte sich ändern. Ein Hieb.
Er schlug zielsicher zu, wie Hunderte Male zuvor, mit der Mitte der Waffe, und sofort tat er im Rhythmus der Bewegung den vierten Schritt und eine halbe Wendung. Die Klinge, zu Ende der Halbwendung schon wieder frei, folgte blitzend seiner Bewegung und zog einen Fächer roter Tropfen hinter sich her. Eine Woge rabenschwarzen Haars breitete sich aus, schwebte durch die Luft, schwebte, schwebte, schwebte ...
Der Kopf fiel in den Kies.
Es gibt immer weniger Ungeheuer?"
Andrzej Sapkowski "Ein Körnchen Wahrheit"

A wonderful artwork, very moving :tribute:

I also enjoyed the books and the RPG. I hardly can wait for the last novel (Pani jeziora) coming next month in German translation (Die Dame vom See). And in spring TW2 is one of the most expected things for me :dance: Geralt rocks!
