Nell finds Arran

31st October 1102

The coals smouldered hotly in the stove casting a warm glow over the sleeping figure. The blankets lay in a tangled knot, wound partially around his foot where they had been kicked.

31st October 1102

She hadn’t gone far. Kelgar could just make out her figure in the darkness, a small, hunched silhouette against the soft glow of the moonlit sea.

The sea blurred at the horizon, milky blue merging with the deeper dark, framed by the hulking bodies of rock.
