Lys: Queen Esther

Aithne was more than out of range of the thatch. But she imagined the view from up there was a little different, so she backed up, further out of the way.

Caleb called down to her, and she suddenly realized she had no clear idea about what she was planning to say. She couldn't keep the grin off her face or the fidgets out of her feet, though. "It's just a beautiful day, isn't it? Might I play your harp this evening?"

Where that came from, she was not certain. The story of Queen Esther came to her mind and her grin became half-wry, half mischevious as she waited for his answer.
