This was the big man that she’d cut down; it would be a hell of a job to move him five inches, let alone five yards. “I told you. ” “Well, maybe originally,” he said. ” Like him, she shrugged, certain he wouldn’t press too hard. Among people of their kind, it was just expected that there would be episodes in your past you would prefer not to discuss. Justin, for instance, had lived on the streets of Ghosenhall as a common street thief until Tayse found him. “Did some guard work here and there,” she said.

As soon as they moved off, Ginny lecturing Bryce in a low voice, Wen bent over the bodies. The weapons weren’t good enough to keep, but one of the men had a purse full of money.

Wen strode the few steps over to them and glared, hands on her hips. “Now,” she said in a stern voice. “You just tell me about your part in this little drama. Two men dead because of you. ” They had no way of knowing that was an idle threat, but the boy, at least, looked unimpressed.
