Now, Emberlee knew how a juicy steak felt as it was dropped before a rottweiler.

It wasn’t her fault that Duke Attendor lay dead. Yet the whole castle guard was after her head with extreme prejudice.

The cold sweat of mortal fear stuck Emberlee’s golden hair to her head. She slammed into the gate and glanced back at the castle, glowing white against the black skies.

A legion of horses hooves and sollerets could be heard hammering the pavements in search of her.

Emberlee’s lungs burned like those of a marathon runner. Close to passing out through panic, she mantled the gate. Her bare feet were raked by nails and splinters. Her dress snagged and she fell to her knees on the other side.

“Find and bring the witch to be burned at the stake!” commanded Llefron’s, his sonorous voice booming over the castle grounds. He was the captain of the guard and heartless too.
