Will shook his head and rubbed at the burning that still ached in his fingers. She couldn't be the one Sojourner had foreseen. She just flat-out couldn't be. Jane Murdock was tall, gaunt, nearly ugly, and as arrogant and self-centered as anyone it had ever been his displeasure to meet. But, despite all that, there was something about her, something... His touch still smarting and burning on her shoulder, Jane blinked away what had had to be a hallucination. She took another step away from Will and said, fury making her voice cold, enunciating each word clearly, making sure that both Will and Maggie understood exactly what she was saying, "My looks, or lack thereof, are not a matter up for discussion.

That, too, was his eternal bane. Grief was a raw and bleeding wound in his soul, but cats do not weep. They cannot. "I know not the outcome, young wizard," he said softly," but whether it be for good or ill, this bride fetching must be done and very soon. " It was Will's turn to sigh, but the wizard didn't even try to argue.

" he whined as he unbuttoned another button on his pants, exposing his soiled underwear and all too obvious intent, and took several unsteady steps toward her. The oil lamp flickered, flared, sent up a cloud of acrid smoke to cloud the globe. It tinted the shadows a darker hue, and add to the almost overpowering stench old sweat, old lust, and too new whiskey.
