Example text

Now the two passed amiably enough so long as I was absent, but Gwey could not resist. ” I patted him affectionately on the cheek and turned on my heel. “I hope to see you soon with his answer, Princess. ” he called behind me. “Duties permitting, Gwey,” I answered and reentered the palace. I made my way quickly to Eric’s throne room. Eric sat, chin perched intently in hand, as a kneeling guard spoke with urgency. Gonnaban sat awkwardly on a gilded chair to Eric’s left. Three other city guards, captains by the look of them, stood beside the kneeling guard.

Scouts had been sent along the road hours earlier and awaited our approach to rejoin us. If there was trouble ahead, we had done all we could to be ready. The vanguard of Eric’s group could be seen now by the light of their own lanterns. Moments later, Eric, with his personal guard and attendants, grew clearly out of the darkness. Gonnaban led his horse to my side. He looked out at the approaching party. “Won’t be long now,” he said. Gonnaban rode one of the short-muzzled horses of my mother’s people, a horse known more for endurance than speed.

Within moments I could see the trumpets strapped to their saddles. The captain of the escort saluted smartly as his men turned to form a wedge leading us in. ” The rider hid his smile well. Gonnaban leaned in. ” I felt myself blush and resisted glancing at Gonnaban’s grin. I knew it grew wider when the riders sounded their horns, peal after peal, as they were answered by the city watch. The sound rolled off the city’s low hill and took wing in the surrounding scrub wood. We entered the outskirts of the city and soon came to the old city gate, its wall a crumbling marker of the historic edges for the city, and were met by Eric and his attendants.
