After a bit of a bobble at her and Caelen's wedding, Arbela prepares to settle into a new life as wife--and mother.
Cut flowers spilled from swaths of fabric draped from pillar to post. More bouquets graced large vessels on the tables, their scent mingling with the aroma of roasted meats. Arbela sat in the chair Caelen offered, the wooden back draped with more garlands of the sweet-smelling flowers. Bram gave her a hopeful look and she invited him to share her seat. He climbed up and leaned against her, his sweet weight going straight to Arbela’s heart.
If nothing else, I will have the joy of raising his child. Encouraged, she hugged Bram against her briefly, then released him to his exploration of the laden table.
Tray after tray was brought to the cloth-draped boards, adding to the already crowded surface. Arbela filled her plate and Bram’s, and she noted Caelen’s attempt to sample a few of her favorite dishes. Pleased, she turned her attention to the tumblers in the center of the room.
Will Arbela give up her life as a warrior? Or will her skills be important now more than ever?

What a great hook there at the end, Cathy! (But I've read it and I know :) :) ) I can't believe this theme has ended, can you?
