    Summary

    Evie looks like she’s about to tumble into a tangent, staring up at the manor house in that way she does: it would always make a smaller Jacob marvel, in awe of his elder sister. Back when they were young, and she knew so much about so many different things.

    A proper anorak, he’d tease.

    Evie never made him feel simple or slow, back then. She was only a person, wanting to impart her love of knowledge to someone else, who in turn appreciated the time she gave him.

    He misses that.

    ---
    As usual, Jacob manages to find trouble where Evie has carefully planned around it.

    Summary

    He pulls her hand up and lays it on his chest, over the glossy scarring there, the crooked dip of the broken rib that healed unevenly beneath it, then moves her palm just over his heart, as he thinks, is it you who is calling for me or is it I who has been waiting for you all this time?

    sometime in between Snotinghamscire and Ravensthorpe, Eivor and Vili reacquaint themselves.

    Summary

    Randvi stepped forward, the sound of her leather boot against the wooden floor broke the silence, followed by her voice. “Hytham, there is food in the longhouse. Won’t you join us?”

    A glance. “Please do not take offence to my absence — I have not been hungry as of late.” Hytham spoke quietly, with care, words thick in his throat. The delicacy of his words almost rung familiar, like they were stood once more upon faraway docks.
