Rue Allyn is with me to share from her book, Knight Errant.
The heroine has avoided one trap. Is the danger past?
Juliana waited longer and longer still. She heard the city bells strike midday. Then more footsteps retreated from her door. She had avoided a trap. Robert would be proud of her.
Feeling a bit silly now that the danger was past, she took the dagger in one hand the key in the other hand and walked to the door.
She turned the key and stepped back.
The door flew open, banging against the wall. A priest strode inside. Another man, a giant, followed him. Angry at their invasion, she drew herself up ready to send them away.
Then the priest lowered his hood.
“Basti!” Juliana gasped and hid the dagger in the sleeve of her shirt. Fear threatened to swamp her anger. She must not let him see her fright. She firmed her stance, determined to resist him at all costs.
