    Summary

    “What is it that you do not like about him?” Josephine asks suddenly, and Ellinor looks at her, open-mouthed. Scandalized.

    “What is it—that I don’t like?” she sputters. “It’s Cullen who doesn’t like me! He—he chastises me. He underestimates me. He’s always in a bad mood and—and he just…” She takes a deep breath. Stop it, she thinks; she’s let her emotions get the best of her. A rare loss of control. She smooths her jacket instinctively. “He looks at me and he sees a highborn girl with nothing to offer the Inquisition but a mark on my hand. He judges me entirely by who I was. Not by who I’m trying to be.”

    Summary

    A bard’s hands are made for many things. For playing a lute or lyre, for example, or for weaving about in the air while telling a story. Down in Orlais a bard’s hands are meant for a decidedly different set of skills, for gripping the handle of a dagger beneath a cloak, for quietly picking a lock or opening a window discreetly, for stealing and bribing and strangling a mark in their sleep before slipping away like a thief in the night.

    Tonight, however, a bard’s hands are for something else, something they have not done in a long time.
