Whether one is raised at a convent that serves Death or
in a tavern room filled with whores, there is one
lesson that always applies: There is no room for mistakes.
wrong amount of poison, the incorrect angle of the knife, poor
aim, or a false gesture when pretending to be someone else can
result in disaster, if not death.
It was the same at the tavern where I spent my earliest
years. How many of my aunts would have had other lives, but
for one mistake? Some, like my mother, chose their path. But
for others, it was too many years of poor harvests, or crossing
the tanner’s guild, which was always looking for excuses to
remove its female members. Being alone at the wrong
moment, catching the eye of the wrong man might send one’s
life skidding down the slope of destiny into a midden heap.
Which is precisely where I have landed.
The shadows in my darkened room loom large as I run my
fingers along the silky edges of the crow feather. The good
news is the convent did not abandon me. The bad news: They
might, once they learn what I have done.
And what will the king do with this knowledge of the
convent I so foolishly handed him? He knew nothing about it
until I spoke of its existence. Will his anger pass like a sudden
summer shower, or will it fester and grow?
Far off in the distance, a cock crows. Morning comes, but
no answers with it. I have spent the night trying to convince
myself that, after five years of their silence, I owe them
nothing. But the sick shaking that has kept me awake all night
tells me my heart believes something else.
Which do I listen to?
Once before, I did not listen to my heart. Come with us,
Maraud said. We can help.
Maraud. Even though he did not know what I was facing, he
offered his help. His friendship. And so much more.
I have stood at only five crossroads in my life, and of all of
them, that is the one I regret the most. Not trusting Maraud
and accepting that help. Indeed, I have ensured he will loathe
me as much as the king does. My name will be a curse upon
the convent’s lips and reviled for generations. Truly, the
wreckage I have left in my wake is breathtaking.
Thinking of Maraud is like rubbing my heart against broken
glass, so I shove all thoughts of him aside. I must find a way to
fix this—to unsay those words to the king. Or at the very least,
convince him they are far less important than he thinks they
are. But he may not ever call for me again or may decide to
have me thrown into the dungeon.
