Lys: Forgiveness, Full and Free

She started when Lord Artos took her arm, for a split second worried that he was angry with her, too. But he spoke kindly to her, reassuring and calm, and for that Aithne was grateful.

"Yes," she sniffed, responding to the Guttersnipe's question. "J-J-Jason won't forgive me, another man hates me now, and even one of the village boys is giving me dark looks. If you had not forgiven me I don't know-" She gave the girl a small, relieved smile. "Thank you."

She was quiet a moment, composing herself. Then she looked up, and said in a low voice, "I was freed today. Did you know that?"
