  1. The fact that Bosleigh spoke so easily as he...

    The fact that Bosleigh spoke so easily as he dismissed her fears made Aloise feel better, in no small part because - perhaps uniquely - she had little reason to question him. Yes, he'd just deceived...
  2. Aloise seemed thoughtful as Bosleigh spoke of the...

    Aloise seemed thoughtful as Bosleigh spoke of the parallels between dancing and swordplay. Could it really be that they were similar? She could see the use of agility in both, but it was just too...
  3. Aloise wasn't sure she believed Bosleigh's logic,...

    Aloise wasn't sure she believed Bosleigh's logic, but it was comforting nonetheless. She had seen a few of her father's men be unable to even lift a sword after a day of drinking, and surely having...
  4. "I'm glad to save you the headache, then," the...

    "I'm glad to save you the headache, then," the girl said, her tone implying she wasn't just guessing at the symptoms. It may not have seemed likely, but Aloise knew what a hangover felt like. She...
  5. For most of the time she was standing in front of...

    For most of the time she was standing in front of the Queen, Aloise had something like tunnel vision. Her focus was solely on the task at hand, at delivering her testimony in such a way that she...
  6. "Alright. I need you to tell me of the crimes...

    "Alright. I need you to tell me of the crimes that you have suffered by the hand of Dastan DeAngelis or any member of his family. Please, begin."

    This was it. Aloise stood before the Queen, and...
  7. Sticky: As it turned out, Aloise didn't have much time to...

    As it turned out, Aloise didn't have much time to consider the prospects of giving favor to a knight, or the reaction it would have on a man who had remorselessly spilled her family's blood. Just...
  8. "Are you feeling alright, Aloise?" The voice...

    "Are you feeling alright, Aloise?"

    The voice pulled the girl from the confines of her own mind, and she looked a little wide-eyed when she focused on Grant and nodded. "Yes, I think so." It...
  9. As the door swung open, Aloise cringed back a...

    As the door swung open, Aloise cringed back a little at the force of the welcome she received. It seemed he wasn't in the mood to even talk to her a little, and she'd been about to simply leave his...
  10. Aloise still couldn't really believe the idea...

    Aloise still couldn't really believe the idea that Seamus could be nervous about anything, but hearing Thomas tease him a little made her smile. Back in Welch Run, when Seamus had told her that he...
  11. The girl had made it to the kitchens without...

    The girl had made it to the kitchens without dropping anything, but the sword was getting awfully heavy, and she'd had to shift how she was carrying it in such a way that she couldn't finish her...
  12. There were so many things to learn and remember,...

    There were so many things to learn and remember, so many lessons, and so little time to get them all straight and memorized and seeming natural. But if nothing else, Aloise was trying. She took in...
  13. Although she felt like she'd just been answering...

    Although she felt like she'd just been answering his question honestly, Aloise saw Grant's reaction and felt like she'd done something wrong. She shook her head as he defended his brother, trying to...
  14. Sticky: "You eating that?" Aloise snapped back to...

    "You eating that?"

    Aloise snapped back to reality rather visibly, and looked from Bosleigh to the bird in question to catch up. "I'd planned on it." She knew she couldn't eat the whole thing,...
  15. The girl listened to the conversation between...

    The girl listened to the conversation between Seamus and Rubianne, and if she was honest she was a little relieved at how little she had to participate. In actuality, Lady Remington seemed entirely...
  16. Grant's abrupt shift in posture startled Aloise...

    Grant's abrupt shift in posture startled Aloise so much that it was only by the merits of a mostly-empty teacup that she didn't end up spilling her drink all over herself. After the stress of...
  17. Cradling her teacup in both hands, Aloise drew...

    Cradling her teacup in both hands, Aloise drew comfort from its warmth even though the room wasn't at all cool; weeks spent in a cellar room with no heat had left the girl with what seemed like a...
  18. Proud of her? Aloise was sure that she'd failed...

    Proud of her? Aloise was sure that she'd failed that little exercise, now that she knew what it was; after all, she'd lost her composure, let herself get angry, and almost lost herself completely...
  19. Aloise didn't move much as she listened to...

    Aloise didn't move much as she listened to Bosleigh, both because she was trying to note what he was saying and because she needed to calm down enough that she could think straight. Walking back the...
  20. "Is that it?" Aloise's head snapped up, anger...

    "Is that it?"

    Aloise's head snapped up, anger flashing in her reddened eyes and her face strained with the effort of keeping herself even remotely together. She didn't understand the expression...
  21. Aloise did feel better with Seamus beside her,...

    Aloise did feel better with Seamus beside her, and although she was still uncomfortable, she tried hard to follow the knight's lead and relax. This was a safe place. She was far from Welch Run, and...
  22. Having Bosleigh cross to linger behind her almost...

    Having Bosleigh cross to linger behind her almost made Aloise more uncomfortable than she had been when he'd been staring, and she was at a loss about the proper way to deal with it. She wanted to...
  23. Aloise looked both insulted and vaguely disgusted...

    Aloise looked both insulted and vaguely disgusted as Bosleigh appraised her like she was some market pig. She felt intensely uncomfortable under his gaze, and she shifted in her seat a little,...
  24. Even though she held a book in her hands, Aloise...

    Even though she held a book in her hands, Aloise was only partially focused on its contents. How could she devote her full attention to it, when there was so much else to think about? She had to...
  25. Aloise had promised to listen, and she tried to...

    Aloise had promised to listen, and she tried to believe Lord Hepburn when he told her things would get easier. In some ways they already had; obviously her surroundings were leagues better than what...
