Tristen lay on the bed, Alice had no clue what had happened to him, he had been fine when they had left home but halfway to her mothers he’d gotten really sick. Placing the cup of water down next to bed she couldn’t help but feel disappointed, she had so wanted to introduce him to everyone.
“How are you feeling?” she asked, softly noticing him opening his eye’s.
“I feel awful” he admitted.
Placing her hand on his head, there was no sign of a temperature. “You feel aright” she smiled, “Perhaps its just a bug, hopefully you’ll feel better tomorrow”
“I’m not so sure” Tristen replied, “I think I might miss the wedding” Continue reading
“Farid!!” Asha squealed running across the lounge and throwing herself into her brothers arms. While her father and step mother stood helplessly by. “I’m so glad you made it, I was so fearin you wouldn’t”
Falcon chuckled, “Your brother would not have forgiven us if we didn’t”
“But who’s looking out after the tavern?” she dared peeling herself from her brothers arms while trying to ignore the stunned look upon his face.

Farid emerged every now and again getting food and water occasionally asking for an extra blanket or a book to read to her. Continue reading
“I don’t even know what his problem is” Asha complained. “He just started rambling on about who was wearin the pants”
‘Well ye can be kinda bossy’ her brother suggested, ‘it’s like I was sayin the other day sometimes a man likes to be allowed to feel like the man’
“Pah!” she huffed, “So what im supposed to act all timid just to give his ego a boost?”
‘I ain’t sayin that’ Farid reasoned, ‘he likes yer even though your not that way… im guessin he want’s you, to be you… he just wants to know you respect his position as the man too’ Continue reading
Farid arrived at the cabin he’d heard Alice’s cry’s back at the inn. He didn’t understand why or how he could hear her he’d only ever had that sort of connection with his sister before.
It was especially strange considering a bare few weeks ago he couldn’t even read Alice’s mind and he was surprised at the sudden turnaround. Still it was clear she was in pain and he wasn’t the sort of man to ignore such a cry. Continue reading
“What’s wrong with you?” the voice in Asha’s head asked.
