Inktober 2019 Day 9: Swing

Today's Prompt:

An object in motion, momentum sustained and leveraged.
Is it a pendulum axe trap tucked away in a dungeon?
Is it the ability of the warrior to put his might into the lethal strike?
Or is it the motion a conflict—to and fro in a lethal dance?

What swings and in what direction?

Lélia hanged

One of the most iconic figures of Artalgnian's folklore is Lélia Donnato, the healer who invented the healing potion. But History remembers her as a witch, who was hanged for using magic in the Empire's territory.
