The off-key song of starlings disturbed by the restless nickering of a horse woke her. The scratchy blanket smelled like road dust. Jade sneezed and slowly opened her eyes. She sat up quickly, watching as the Gadjo rolled up a blanket and placed it in the pack. He continued to move around the makeshift camp. He was a tall man; his broad shoulders and toned muscles complemented his large frame. He carried himself with the proud, easy grace of a jungle cat. Dark, wavy brown hair splashed with gold by the sun framed his face.
Similar bruises marred her upper arms and legs. Embarrassed, she sought to stop Evan’s examination by turning away. He held her, murmuring in a hushed, soothing tone as he traced the livid marks with the tips of his fingers. His face shuttered. He swung his long legs over the edge of the bed and sat up, facing away from her. He ran his hand through his hair as he stared at the wall. The intimacy had been shattered.

She hoped Evan had been too drunk to remember what had happened between them in his room. The memory of it filled her with renewed shame. Hindes joined Jade and Evan as they reached the tavern gatepost, riding a chestnut mare he purchased from the blacksmith. He waved in greeting and rode abreast of them, the mare easily matching Raven’s canter. “I’ll ride with you today,” Hindes said. ” Jade sat in front of Evan on the horse, her back rigid as Hindes attempted to engage them in conversation. Evan uttered a terse reply and urged Raven into a gallop, creating distance between the two mounts.
