Chapter Twenty-Eight – Part Two

And More Family

It was Aden that asked, “Lord Harbest, who did Prince Aneron take as his second wife?”

“Oh, he did not claim a simple thing like my daughter. Prince Aneron had plans for his life. He claimed Princess Northevy.”

“What? But she was married to –“

“Don’t think that you are the only lady to have a husband that frequented the bars, Princess – Hell, you’re family – Aden.”

Chapter Twenty-Eight – Part One

And More Family

Mersidda had told me, and informed Baron Behammir, that her home was about two days from Nemurk. While everyone with the noble was mounted, they had a loaded wagon just like we had. Mersidda however said that it was usually a loaded wagon that left and returned, so two days should be the proper time.

Family

Aden’s father had a rather comfortable camp established. Mersidda was driving the wagon, and I knew better than to try and direct her against the directions of the soldiers. I simply dropped from the wagon to stand and examine the placement of tents, items, and fires. Aden’s father noticed me, and rode over to ask a question while still sitting on his horse.

“You have a problem?”

“Yes. You have been here a while.”

And the Wall Came Tumbling Down

My two wives tried to get excited about finally getting to see my home, but found me not willing to join in the speculation with them. My only satisfaction was that they did not argue with me when I told them to head to Mersidda’s home and wait for me should things get desperate. Feeling that my wives would remain safe, I worried about what I speculated about conditions outside the wall.

Meaningless Preparations

Aden turned from the door that the baron slammed shut behind him to say, “My lord, I really don’t understand.”

I moved to wrap my arms around her while saying, “I don’t understand either. Sometimes you hope for understanding after making a connection, but most of the time you simply have to be satisfied that you made the connection.”

Planning for the End

I woke up feeling the effects of the alcohol, but having two lovely ladies caring for me definitely helped me get into the mood to start my day. Where usually it was the other way around, I found it enjoyable to watch Aden move around naked while Mersidda was dressed. Finally feeling myself shake the effects of the alcohol, I let the ladies know my plans.

Den of Iniquity

It did feel different leaving the castle alone. Having only been married for a few days, I expected the old feeling of going out to return. Back then I however had nothing else to do. Now I had whiskey, I had women, I had almost everything I needed. I thus felt like I was going to work in leaving to a place where I once went to forget about my days of work.

Thoughts on Thoughts

Again I was made comfortable in a chair, but instead of reading Aden sat on the floor beside me and laid her head on a leg. She did not look in my direction, but I could tell that she did not cry. Mersidda said nothing about her, and I let her be as well.
