Highlander Drabble HL50 prompt  
Title:For tomorrow we die 
Prompt: Illumination, Challenge #153 for highlander100and because I have no shame, Iive decided to use it as prompt 30 Death for highlander50  too. 

So, marys_scribblesand calime33 idly mentioned over on highlander100that it would be good to see Richie on his bike take on Kronos on horseback. This is what my brain threw up:

For Tomorrow we Die

They had never met in life, but death made strange bedfellows. Both killed by the same man, and so both were here.
 
In the end there can be only one.
 
The Game went on, victor living to fight another day, loser dying to do the same.
 
Richie pulled his sword, mounted his bike and started the engine. The opposite end of the field, Kronos mounted his horse.
 
They stared at each other for eternity. A squeal of tyres, a whinny from the horse, and they charged at each other.
 
One head bounced across the floor. And the Game went on.
 
Q to Richie. Or is it Kronos?

You left out the most important part! What bike was Richie riding?? :p

Fantastic idea though, wow, sword fights forever in Immortal limbo..

Thank you. I might develop it one day, I dunno, but I wanted it to just be a drabble for now.

I found the idea of this really interesting. And I love how you worked it. I would not mind to see more of this ;-)
