    Summary

    The end of her sword hovers above his shoulder, right beside his neck. Any sudden movement, and she would have him incapacitated -- perhaps permanently.

    "You killed my husband."

    The accusation echoes around them, her voice shrill with equal parts fury and horror.

    He grabs her blade with his bare hand, thickened with callouses from years of fighting, and pulls the rest of the weapon away from her grasp. Drops of his blood fall to the ground from the new wound on his palm, but if he feels any pain from the cut, he does not say anything.

    "I am your husband."

    --

    After years of war end in a call for an armistice, an arranged marriage is proposed to maintain the new and fragile peace between two kingdoms. Rey, captain of the Rebels, the elite warriors of her kingdom, has volunteered to be a bride of the former enemy, the Knights of Ren, in order to seek vengeance for her fallen friend -- by marrying the man who killed him, Kylo Ren.

    Summary

    “The true soldier fights not because he hates what is in front of him, but because he loves what is behind him.”

    Summary

    A small raid, at best. Perhaps twenty five men.
     
    But they have come awake, aware on sleeping enemies. They have come ahorse and bring death. Will watches impassively, still. He knows enough of war and death to have learned the virtues of immobility. One that did not run did not catch the eye, did not draw the sword down upon his back.

    He turns toward his lord's tent and sees the man stern faced in the entryway, fingers clenched in the oiled canvas flap that closes the tent, holding it aside. His lord senses Will's gaze on him, and turns, anger writ clear and decisive on his features.

    Will had not forseen this.

    He had not been asked to look.
