Recovering felt anything but easy. Even after I was able to sit up by myself I still couldn’t make any reckless movements for fear of tearing the stump on my shoulder. But with the restless days I felt the strength renew in my veins.
But as the days turned to weeks, so did the want to move around bite at me. Only after I experienced the eighth day of the sunlight on my back, did I decide to take matters into my own hand. Standing up, I found my pants folded neatly along the foot of the bed.

“I’m sorry, Miss.” I spoke to the empty chair. “I need to find out more of this place.”
Buckling my sword onto my hip, I reached over and opened the tent flap.
