Example text

The Khelid released my hand, even as I cursed the Prince for speaking my true name in the demon’s hearing. I moved quickly around the Khelid and knelt beside Aleksander, bowing my head as low as I could without putting it in his lap or his plate. ” “My lord . ” I almost choked on the words that tried to tumble out of my mouth. What in the name of the gods was he doing? The washing at the close of a meal was usually the job of younger slaves . . attractive women or youths made available for a night for those guests who took a fancy to them.

The giant hearth fires were well stoked, there was a variety of people to watch, and though most of the disputes and peti­ tions were mundane, occasionally there were matters of in­ terest or consequence to observe. Best of all, when I returned to the slave house on the first night, Durgan had re­ ceived orders that I was not to be returned to the under­ ground cell. Though Zeroun had soured my reputation thoroughly among the slaves and no one of them dared speak to me, it did my soul good to feel the breathing of other human beings in the room as I slept.

I pointed to the tunic. ” “Oh, aye. As before. In his chambers. ” I bowed, took myself to the cistern, and, once the slave master had inspected me and given his approval, started for the palace. As I left the slave house, Durgan called after me, “Watch your tongue, slave. ” I was not averse to watching my tongue. I just wished I knew how to go about it with Aleksander. On this occasion the bodyguards outside the Prince’s door searched me before I was allowed to knock. As they prodded and poked self-importantly, I heard the disconcert­ ing sounds of glass breaking and cursing from behind the door.
