452. BOOK EXCERPT: The Knowing ~ Larriane Wills ~ Swimming Kangaroo Books

The Knowing excerpt:

Garran’s voice went cold as ice when he answered the last question.
“Bashsay had several patches of flesh peeled away,
promising none would be left long afore I died. Fortunately for me,
the man doing the cutting did not go deep enough to cripple, and
Caslock took me afore Bashsay could see it done.”

Traval moaned and held his stomach. “What you have suffered turns me
ill, Garran, but do not use my guilt for distraction.”
Garran tried. “Guilt, Vermont? For what you did not tell me of the
bargain Amor made for Sheritan with Caslock?”
“Was there a mark of a star?” Traval demanded.
“Do you ask now for king or Atat Comm?”
“King, for Atat Comm, as you say, is a nothing more than a false
story.” Traval dismissed it with a flick of his hand. “What is of
importance is the birth mark. You can be king.”

“Were I the one you seek, I would present me self not as son but
executioner,” Garran hissed. “You do not know the depths of my hatreds
or their cause. Nor do you know my desires better than me self. Not
all men dream of being kings.”
“Nay,” Traval said quietly, “some do not.”
“Does our conversation alter your agreement for aid?”
“Nay, you have given your word to serve as her protector above all
else. I will make arrangements immediately. Will you answer me one
question? What do you desire for your future?”
“I have no future.”
