Draining the Coffer’s

Abel sat on the couch in his chambers his head ached and his body complained, he hadn’t slept in two days, how could he? He had to find a solution to his sister’s predicament.

He’d learned she’d lost the baby as soon as he’d returned and He’d rushed to her side. She hadn’t spoken, not a word. Ailana had always seemed frail to him, she was like a delicate flower so precious that the slightest thing could crush her.

She’d been fidgety all night unable to sleep her stomach unsettled she felt tight knots forming. The whole castle was in a stir, after Thomas and Abel left hurriedly in a coach for goodness knows where. It wasn’t that she was concerned for Thomas, or even what they where doing, it was the look he brother had given her before he had left that told her something was wrong.
