“What the hells!” Wolf roared hauling himself to his feet.
“Stay!” She demanded, focusing her attention to keep him pinned to the seat.
He struggled for a moment trying to rise unable to do so he finally relented“Aright … i see yer got some knack’s of ye own”
Asha lay quietly on her bed; the events of the week had given her a lot to think about. Till now she’d always assumed she knew all the gifted. The incident with Wolf wasn’t SO strange she decided surely she more than most should understand that there was indeed more to the human condition than most people understood.
Wolf was like her it seemed, not quite normal and his father was the same or so it seemed and although what she’d seen was terrifying and shocking the power that had emanated from the pair resembling nothing she’d witnessed before. Maria was the closest thing to that she’d seen before, with the ability to turn into a large cat. Still in comparison Maria seemed more like a kitten finding it’s feet.
Really though she decided she shouldn’t be SO shocked, the gift was a strange thing and obviously it had blessed Wolf and his father in the same way it had blessed her and her brother as well as a few others in Grimstead, they’d obviously mastered it in a way most of them hadn’t.
Asha smiled feeling more relaxed about the whole affair granted she still wasn’t sure she was ready to continue her relationship with the large northman but she had decided that she needen’t blow the event out of proportion, for the first time she realised how normal people could fear her own gift.

He sat listening the gentleman’s story of how he was the real Alistair, his brother and he was in fact alive and well. Continue reading
“Still think he’s too old for you” Farid grumbled.
“Hush up” Asha snapped back as she hurriedly finished cleaning the last of the tables after the afternoon rush.
“What do you see in him?” Farid asked genuinely not understanding the attraction, as he stared at the large man sitting waiting to take his sister out “i don’t get it” he said shaking his head. Continue reading
Wolf stomped sulkily down the stairs, Raeann has been on his back all morning over everything and nothing. Grabbing an apple from the fruit bowl he headed towards the front door.
“Wher ya goin lad?” Lars called after him from the sitting room.
“Just out” Wolf replied defensively not quite ready to share the new’s of his meeting with the young girl in the tavern or with the meeting he’d organised with her this afternoon.
Having finished his meal Wolf sat mulling over his ale. Had Asha made an advance, was that what is called?? She was very forward for one so young if thats what it had been.
As much as he kept threatening to give up on Raeanne he couldn’t honestly say he’d thought another woman would be interested, yet here he sat with what he was almost certain was a young girl showing an interest in him. Continue reading
The night was brisk as they stood in the castle garden’s following the coronation “What do you mean you’re not staying??” Raeanne screeched. Continue reading
