Ah well, Columcil will just have to mortify his vanity.

You could borrow Aliset's clothes. Oh wait, mortify his vanity, not simply be mortified....  ;)

Because that would ease his discomfort at the idea of meeting His Grace of Corwyn :-[

They'd be clean. Especially as they've hardly been worn, since she's mostly been traveling wearing Alister's clothes!   ;D

LOL  Yes but would they fit?  :P

Assuming that they would be made to fit by lacing probably just about. Columcil is only 5'7". Aliset could act as tiring maid, assuming she could stop laughing long enough.
Columcil is thinking longingly of that island off Meara where penitents climb the mountain on their knees.
Let God rise up, let his enemies be scattered;
    let those who hate him flee before him.
As smoke is driven away, so drive them away;
    as wax melts before the fire,

Quote from: Jerusha
He had worn a beard years ago; the Captain said he looked like a snowball

This is sending me into uncontrollable peels of laughter. You expect Laurna/Washburn to think after that remark.  LOL

Forgive me, but I can not stop laughing.

LOL @ vain tonsured Wash!  You do realize, right, that a Gwyneddan tonsure is at worst about as big around as a silver dollar, and at best (even when not grown out yet) maybe as big around as a dime? KK calls it "coin-sized."  We're not talking about the entire top of his hair gone here! By this time, I'm pretty sure the only person who even notices the formerly bald spot anymore is Wash himself.   ;D

Thank you. I fear Columcil's homely respite will not last long.

I forgot the armed guard, but I hope they would be tactful and wait just outside.

Aliset can walk past the guard when she goes to get Columcil.

Nice one, Laurna!  :D

You did a particularly great job of capturing the brotherly relationship between Kelric and Washburn.  The way Kelric views Wash reminds me of how my oldest brother behaves towards the rest of us siblings; he'll be the first to give us grief and pick on us (e.g. the "Sasquatch" and "puppy" jokes about my feet when I was a kid ;) ), but he's also the first one to any of our sides when the chips are down.
"If having a soul means being able to feel love, loyalty, and gratitude, then animals are better off than a lot of humans."

James Herriot (James Alfred "Alfie" Wight), when a human client asked him if animals have souls.  (I don't remember in which book the story originally appeared.)

I owe you the greatest of apologies, my lord. I fear I have not succeeded in doing as you requested of me. I have the heir of Mariot under my protection, but our path to Rhemuth, which should have taken but five days, has been hindered multiple times. It is now seven days and we have but traveled two-thirds of the distance. I am sorry that I have failed you.

Wow, has it only been seven days?  It feels like months!   ;)  ;D

Brilliant stories both.

Laurna you made me cry, you got inside Kelric's head so beautifully. And thank you for giving Alaric such a hero's death - seeing that Bynw had decreed his passing.

Yes Laurna's story of the passing of Alaric was brilliant. A good flushing out of that back story. We already knew that he had passed saving the Kingdom. We knew he died in battle. We knew he died fighting during a magical duel. Great backstory
