Casting Runes Part 31“I am willing to listen to you. Would you listen to me?” With this question she looked into her sister’s blue eyes and waited for an answer.
And Jordis waited for quite a long time. For endless seconds the two sisters stared into each other’s eyes and Jordis was not sure what she saw in Colleen’s gaze. Was it anger, surprise…ignorance? She simply could not say for she really did not know.
“Fine.”, Colleen slowly said and could only barely erase anger from her voice, “If you want to, then talk!”
Jordis took a deep breath and was not sure of what to say, where to start. So she hesitated while desperately thinking of something to tell her little sister.
But all of a sudden, Colleen’s eyes narrowed to slits and she hissed: “I knew you wouldn’t!”
With these angry words, she pushed Jordis to the side and headed for the door. Although she knew that she should not do it, Jordis grabbed her arm out of an
Casting Runes Part 30But why had it been there when she had talked about an unborn child?
Jordis tilted her head and pondered on this question, but she found no answer. At first, but when she did she felt as if someone had pulled the ground from under her.
But before Jordis managed to saw something, it was Liam who whispered in shock: “No…poppet, no.”
Colleen jumped to her feet so hastily that she knocked over her chair and simply stood there for a few seconds, her body all tense and her fists clenched.
“Just…get her to someone who can help her with the child.”, she said through gritted teeth and turned to leave, but again it was Liam who followed her.
“Wait…”, he pleaded, Colleen, however, spun around and pushed him back so hard that he fell to the ground, then she ran away, out of the kitchen and at the end of the hall, she slammed a door shut.
Liam scrambled to his feet again and panted heavily, in shock as well as in anger; Jordis co
Casting Runes Part 29She did not know for how long she had slept, when a sudden noise made her wake in terror.
It was the tremendously loud clattering of a metal object that had been thrown against a wall. Neil was still beside her and jerked at this sound, as did she, but he immediately shoved her behind his back to protect her, as he had always done so in the few hours they knew each other.
“Are you completely bonkers?!”, Liam shouted at Colleen, as Jordis now quickly realised, “You can’t just throw a knife at me!”
“I can, obviously. If you haven’t noticed, I just did.”, was her answer and Liam growled low-pitched so Jordis was sure that he would rip her apart any second and already jumped to her feet, as Neil did too. But then all of a sudden, Liam backed off and mumbled: “I’m sorry, Colleen, I only wanted to give you a hand, not startle you.”
What?! By the runes, Jordis would never have thought to hear something

Casting Runes Part 28She did not look to see who had come, but listened to the words they directed at Neil.
“Oi, knight. “Watching over” someone doesn’t mean “watching them in their sleep”, y’know.”, Liam said and Jordis could see the challenging smirk on his face without having to open her eyes; she simply heard from the tone of his voice that it was there.
“Yes, I am well aware of this distinction.”, Neil replied in such a calm manner that she had to smile a bit as she knew that it would make Liam furious. And she was right as she heard from his answer: “So you know. But still you’re watching her as if nothing else in the world could catch your eye.”
Did he? Jordis did not want to look, but instead listened in on the argument the two men had. Neil did not answer, so Liam knelt down next to her so that his voice was nearer when he growled and then angrily whispered: “You don’t know nothing about
Casting Runes Part 27Staring in this warm and clear blue, Jordis had no idea what to say.
So she stayed quiet and waited for Neil to say something, anything. But he did not; he waited as did she and silently looked into her eyes.
“Please, take the shirt.”, Jordis finally managed to whisper breathlessly, “After all you did for me today, Father would surely have given you at least a shirt.”
Slowly, a smile appeared on Neil’s lips, but there was sadness in his eyes when he spoke: “You miss your family, as do I.”
It was a statement, not a question, but Jordis nevertheless nodded as an answer. Then she asked a sympathetic question herself: “Do you have no one left?”
For a moment, Neil closed his eyes and Jordis already missed the dark shade of blue before he opened them again and replied while meeting her gaze: “My father died, as you know, and I was the only child. Mother now lives with my uncle and his wife, a journey of at least a w
Casting Runes Part 26Damn her! Liam had really thought that he knew how to hunt down an animal. Well, he had to admit – in silence of course – that he had mostly hunted cats or dogs, sometimes even rats, so far, but he had not thought wild animals to make much of a difference. Runes, had he been so wrong.
Not one animal had he spotted and if he had, Colleen had already had aimed her bow at it. And as soon as Liam had tried to draw her attention to the animal…he had scared it off. What a fine hunter he was!
He gritted his teeth at this cynical thought, but he had to admit that Colleen had by far been better than him. It was entirely her merit that they were now carrying a spiffing boar to the farmstead, already disembowelled and everything, again by Colleen.
Runes, he had made a complete fool of himself out there and it gnawed away at his manhood that a girl had bested him.
Again Liam cursed under his breath and had been sure that Colleen could not have heard that, but she must have as
Casting Runes Part 25This had been her home…
And it was in devastatingly bad shape. The fields next to the farmstead were completely ruined and lay wasted, the door was crooked in its hinges and the paint her father had painted on the walls was splintering. The mere sight of it let tears well up in Jordis’ eyes. It had been her home and now…it was in ruins.
“Come in, but don’t touch anything!”, Colleen ordered them and it startled Jordis, but they all followed her sister and as soon as they had entered the building, she was baffled. The little entrance hall was dirty, but the very next room, the kitchen, was well in order and neatly clean, there was even a fire in the oven.
“How…?”, Jordis murmured, but Colleen hissed: “What do think, sister? I hid here, it’s the only thing I’ve got left.”
Angrily she shook her head and then added with a cynical grin: “Apart from you dirty lot. Now I’ve got more than I ever
Casting Runes Part 24“Colleen?!”
Her sister tried to back off in bafflement as she surely recognised Jordis, but she was held by Tom and Liam. The latter now loosened his grip and also looked at Colleen in shock, gasping as he recognised the girl under all the scars and the grim demeanour.
“It really is you…”, he then whispered, but Colleen snapped: “What’s it to you, Liam?”
He jerked at her harsh words, as did Jordis, but Colleen furiously added: “You didn’t do a thing, didn’t even say one fucking word before you left in an argument! And three days later they came…”
Liam turned pale as he heard that and then he stammered: “Colleen, I didn’t know, not until weeks after it all. Please believe me, poppet, I…”
“Don’t you dare!”, her sister growled and never before had Jordis hear anyone speak in this tone, least of all had she believed to hear one of
what love is not.it was a s l o p p y first kiss where
my drunk lips fumbled against yours.
the dull thwack of my heart,
locked behind curved ribs
cleared my groggy brain,
clouded with lustful premonitions.
it was an e l e c t r i f y i n g first kiss where
you entwined your hands in my hair.
your mouth encompassed mine and
my breath became lost in the steady
of your chest.
it was a s h y first kiss where
i pulled away before you could explore.
your tongue grazed my teeth,
searching for a way past the ivory gates.
i dug my finger into the stubble along your jaw,
my nail lulling your carnal desires.
it was my first kiss with you.
