Lanterns by the score, hanging from yardarms and rails, lit the night. Nesaea held fast to Fira, who quivered and shook. Nesaea shivered just as hard, but the root of her shaking came from knowing sh...e was trapped. After Lord Sanouk had poisoned her and locked her away in the catacombs under Fortress Hilan, there were times when even warm blankets seemed suffocating. Observing the steel-wielding Cerrikothian Kingsguard around her, she wished blankets were her only concern.
There were no less than forty of Nabar’s Kingsguard around her and the others. Edrik was easy enough to pick out. He was not the tallest, nor was he the strongest looking, but his fellows all deferred to him. For all the good it will do them. But the outlanders had ceased being a threat.
She knew the Kingsguard had come for Rathe, and as he was not among the captives, chances were they would soon put everyone to the question. The soldiers said nothing, but their spear tips and swords glittered in the torchlight, waiting to begin their bloody labor.
