Kain woke up early the next morning. He had not slept well, and the hard floor did not have anything to do with it. He was used to that. What he was not used to was the attraction and conflict he felt in himself. He did not want to be attracted to Jarin, because that would mean opening himself to another person, and that scared him. When he was around Jarin, he felt as if the other man could see straight through him.

He had dreamed about what had happened last night, but in his dream he had given himself to the other man completely. That could not happen, no matter how much he wanted it. That was what had started these feeling of insecurity. He glanced to the bed. Not to mention, the man that was now lying where he had been. That was another reason to stay away.

Getting up quietly, Kain frowned at the traitors on the other bed. They had all been in on it, wanting to push him in with Jarin. He shook his head, sighing. He needed to work with his horse, since he had been giving Kain trouble the entire day before. Getting dressed quickly, he grabbed the halter that was draped over a chair. He left the room to find Devin, and ask if his friend had a round pen he could use.


About an hour after Kain left, Jarin woke up. He had been holding Rodney all night, trying to offer comfort where he could. It was also a means of comforting himself. Whether Alec was dead or alive, he was now owned by Jarin's father, and would never be the same. He had still done what the High Lord had wanted, and that showed that he was untrustworthy.

He raised his head when he heard Adriel moan from the other bed. That meant his friend was awake enough for him to explain about Alec before Rodney did. He knew Adriel would take it easier from him, and he wanted to break the news as gently as possible.

Touching Adriel on the arm, Jarin smiled gently at him. "Good morning," he spoke softly, dreading what he had to say to his friend.

Adriel grinned at him, sleepily. "Did you have a good night?" His grin disappeared when he saw the serious look on Jarin's face. He cocked his head, frowning. "What happened? What's wrong?" Adriel sat up, glancing toward the bed. When he saw Rodney lying there, he opened his mouth to ask what he was doing there.

Jarin stopped him by placing his finger to the other man's lips. "Let me explain, please," he closed his eyes, momentarily, then began the difficult news.


Devin decided to hold off on showing the others the map, since the young noble and his friends were not in the right frame of mind to deal with it. They would stay at his friend's home, recovering from their recent ordeal, then he would have a talk with Rodney about what had been happening at the manor. The young soldier had valuable information, since he had been taking note of everything, and Devin was very happy about that.


The day before, Adriel's father had found Alec on the floor. He had been stabbed in the chest, near his heart. Picking the young man up, he rushed him to the barracks. He would speak to the physician there, since he was not the same one Lord Nathaniel used. The captain of the guard was almost certain the healer could do something for him.

While Alec was being cared for, the captain took out the letter his son had given him on the night he had left. It gave detailed information on everything that had been going on, beginning with the implanted orb to the escape. In it, he told his father that he would come back when things settled down, or when they had found the demon stones and destroyed them. The captain was very proud of his son, but also worried. He knew he would need to be careful from then on, especially since Lord Nathaniel was sure to call for him.
