Lys: Heartbreak

Aithne's heart broke, and she did not know why. The Guttersnipe knew the bird, and, she gathered, it was something of Lord Ambrosius's. But beyond that, the interchange was a mystery.

And she was certainly an outsider to the moment.

Feeling somewhat out in the cold, she turned away and walked up the bank. She would not desert the Guttersnipe, not for anything. But the meeting was private and she felt intrusive by staying. So she came up, set her back to a tree and hugged herself in the sudden chill, standing guard for the girl and her friend.

A tear tracked down her face.
