"Triple the guard for the rest of the night, and keep it doubled for the next few days. I don't want any trouble from this. Jennor, meet me in the village centre with the stocks. I'll fight Lavis after the morning meal."The men nodded and began to disperse. Reid helped Leanna to her feet. "Are you alright?" he asked under his breath."Is Tris still alive?" she said, ignoring his question.He nodded. "But every day she is weaker.""I brought chammol - a herb that may cure her," she explained when he looked at her quizzically. "It's the bundle in my belt. Give it to the wisewoman. She should know what to do. If not, tell her this."She relayed the instructions to Reid and made him repeat them back to her until she was confident he had them right. By then they had reached the center of the village, where the stocks were already set up. Reid locked her in and left.She slumped against the supports, too tired to care what a sorry picture she must present. The important thing was that Triss had a fighting chance now.
(I feel a bit like I'm forwarding a chain letter as I name other people, so please don't feel obligated to participate, or to tag others if you do participate, although of course I would recommend it because I've had fun. If you do join in, please let me know on twitter - @Amethystars - or in the comments here.)
Love & hugs from my lazy vacation,
