It had been an ice storm, followed by a thaw and a freeze. Deja set him to clear the gutters, miserable, useless work, since he had to pry ice off grime and stone, and since the weather link said another thaw was due the next day. Martin didn’t mind. It kept him out of the […]

Deja took them back to Durbin, putting Martin in the below-stairs dorm there and giving him the worst work in the house, to impress upon him and everyone else how low Martin had sunk. He didn’t speak to Martin otherwise, except when he came around to tell him about the bids he had gotten on […]

Kistur did stay. He slept below stairs, spending his days in the stable, coming in only for meals.

The noise of the sea wind was enormous, like the roar of shuttle engines battering his ears. Sun burned the rock beneath him, burned his bare shoulders and back. It felt good. He felt good. For the first time in a long while, he felt safe, his knees against his chest, the stone beneath him, […]

Over on the gazebo, the university orchestra screeched through some elaborate arrangement. Everyone said holder music was awful. Which it didn’t matter to Martin: holder or cot, all music made him ill. Shoulders hunched, he got out of range of the racket as quickly as possible. Above, clouds puffed into immense blossoms in the bright […]
