The … Beatrix
It’s getting closer and the time for change is now.
He thinks I don’t know his plan with all of this, but he’s not as smart as he seems.

He won’t hurt us.
He can’t hurt us.
The winds are starting to shift in my favor, and I’ll make him beg for a mercy he won’t receive.
The … Lakyn
Both of them.
They think they’re so brilliant, that I don’t know that they’ve been plotting against me since we took to the road, but I’ve got a little weapon that neither of them are even aware of yet.

The … Ichabod
I’m torn in two.
My loyalty for Beatrix is unshakable, but Lakyn …
He’s starting to make me feel wanted—truly wanted, and he’s helping me stand on my own two feet. I love Bea, but she’s never done this for me before.

But will it be mine?
Am I the one thing standing in her way of everything she’s ever wanted?
