Description: Frowning, Mallory stood as rigid as an oak while Aldrid leaned his weight on one leg, completely at ease. He was more than a head shorter than Mallory, but I still had to look up to his face–a face spattered with freckles and half hidden by a wild mane of russet curls. A short beard the same bright hue encircled his mouth.

“You must be our lord’s new ward.” He grabbed my hand and kissed it. If I’d worn rings, I’d have checked to see they were still there. “I’m Aldrid–the Red, they say–which I much prefer to Aldrid the Short.” “Aldrid Lytlman,” Mallory sneered. “Yes, I’ve been called that as well. Been called worse things by many men, I’m sure.” “I’m Amarys.” “Lord Rensweald’s cousin, I understand,” Aldrid said. “Who’d have known such a beautiful rose could bloom on his family’s brittle bush?”
