It seems Teron is not the only one carrying a burden. Lainloth doesn't seem too happy with her life as well. I'm quite curious to see if they'll meet per chance or if the night is enough to convince Teron to seek her. Although I think at the moment Lainloth couldn't forgive him for leaving her side.
had to add, love the bit about the rolling pin sailing thru the air. Hey you never know, she got that lusty spirited fire honestly. perhaps her mother would not be as angery as she thinks.
Author's Response: I think that the fieriness runs through the family. Except maybe in Laithor's case. That only comes out to play, as we have seen, in the presence of Alagon ;)
I absolutely love this! The relationship between brother and sister seems so real. Having a brother I am very close to, I can tell you I often wanted to ring his neck, and did once or twice. On the other hand, we know each other and share a relationship that would not be possible with anyone else. Your conversation between the two was much better than what I came up with.
Your description of how Lainloth feels about Teron is fabulous! I just adore this wild lady. She is a spirit akin to Eowin as far as fierce independence and liberation goes. “Free” is a wonderful name for her.
I truly hope Teron has a good reason for leaving her. That is far from chivalrous.
Cannot wait for the next chapter! You just keep going with your ideas. I dearly love Lainloth, and have from the start.
Author's Response: Thanks dear! I tried so hard to think of my own siblings, too. I'm glad it worked! I adore her too, although sometimes I am rather frustrated by her whorishness. Her exploits play like a movie in my head and I feel myself wanting to slap her. The next chapter will address Teron's ungentlemanliness. I'm so glad you liked it! -Whisper
