********************************************

Dawn found them sitting around a small but warm fire in a cave that lay hidden between rocks and trees, far away from any road. Cara hadn´t seen any lights on their way, and she had wondered how the girl had been able to find the place in the almost darkness of this cloudy night. Not once had she hesitated. Her brown eyes had met her glare from time to time, and every time they did, she had tried a reassuring smile that only made Cara´s frown deepen.

Cara did not grant them a rest. Not until she heard Haron yell at her; his voice hitching in panic.

“Please! By the Keeper´s darkness! Stop! Do you want to kill her?”

Clenching her jaw she reined the horse, just in time to feel Kahlan slipping to the right and she would have fallen from the horse, if not for Haron, who had hurriedly dismounted; he caught her and carefully put her down.

He was grimacing as if in pain himself, but Cara knew it was Kahlan´s pain that tormented him.

“Mistress! I got you. Breathe, please just breathe!”

Cara had dismounted, too and now sank to her knees beside them.

Kahlan´s eyes fluttered open, a tiny twitch in the corner of her lips assuring Haron that she was still alive, but her gaze sought Cara´s. Her lips moved.

“Have... you... killed him?”

::::::::::::::::::::::::::

It was in their third week together that Cara heard the sound for the first time.

They had set-up camp in a small valley, where a little creek offered fresh water and a tiny pond allowed them to take a short bath, which was cold and freezing of course, but refreshed them in every manner. Haron had stood watch while Kahlan had taken off her clothes and sat down in the shallow stream, naked, her back to Cara, who knew the Confessor didn´t go well with her ogling her. She had admonished her a few times when she had found the blonde´s eyes on her. But she watched nonetheless. And why would she not? Kahlan was a beautiful woman. It was a pleasure to watch her skin shimmering with drops of water splashed over her body, when the last sun rays that fell through the leaves around the pond, put a faint gold to all the tiny freckles. Her moves were slow and almost tender as she rubbed the dust off; and when she dunked into the water to emerge again with her face lifted and an expression of... peace and relaxation playing on her features, while her wet hair cascaded in thick curls over her back, Cara felt something pulling in her insides.

Kahlan was beautiful.

There was nothing she should be ashamed of.

„Mistress?“

The voice came low from the near road. Kahlan blinked a few times, all her muscles had tensed, as if awaiting an attack. She breathed relieved when she found it was the redhead that had returned. Shooting a short glance to the Mord Sith, who sat on a log to her right and hadn´t moved, except for a quick grip to her agiel, she nodded reassuringly. The agiel was put back in its holster and the grim glare focused on their visitors.

Bushwhacking noisily, which gained him an annoyed huff from the Mord Sith, the redhead appeared. He stumbled into sight with a silly smile on his lips, that widened immediately as his gaze found Kahlan.

„Mistress, I have brought help. And provisions. Just like you demanded.“

Kahlan gave him a brief, tight smile before briefly looking at Haron again, slowly standing to greet their visitors.

Chapter 4

In the middle of the night the Mord Sith woke up; cold sweat pooling on her skin and her hand tightening its grip around the handle of her weapon. Cara appreciated the fire her agiel forced through her muscles. The pain grounded her and allowed her to focus on where she was; to leave the dream behind. A dream in which she had watched a man who´s face had been obscured, but who was wrapped in the colors of the Lord Rahl. She gritted her teeth as she thought of the many ways this man had tortured her sisters, how she had felt it as if he had ripped her own skin off her flesh; and Triana´s eyes that had been filled with pain and disbelieve. He had beaten her and cut into her flesh and...

Chapter 3

Kahlan sighed relieved at the sight of the tall man, only now feeling the heavy beating of her heart; she nodded thankfully.

Not a moment too early...” she breathed.

I´m sorry, Mistress! I wanted to step in sooner, but I was worried...it would have led to a fight and you´ve said you needed her; and she didn´t seem to really threaten you until now. Though, ...I´ve been careful! She´s not dead; only unconscious. And she may suffer a massive headache when she comes around.”

He watched her closely as she stepped over the Mord Sith and bent down to examine the body; freezing immediately when a low moan escaped the woman as she turned the blonde on her back.

Haron smiled gently. “As I said, Mistress. She´s unconscious. There´s no need to fear her now.”

Still kneeling beside the Mord Sith Kahlan shot him a sharp side-glance.

Don´t be stupid. This is not fear,” she growled. “but you should never underestimate this woman! She´s quick! And she´s shrewd!”

CHAPTER 2

The blonde Mord Sith made them walk until late night. She didn´t seem to tire, or at least she didn´t acknowledge it. And so tried Kahlan. She marched on, refusing to show any sign of exhaustion, though at the end of the day she felt like stumbling through thick mud. When her captor finally stopped she was barely able to hold back a sigh of relief.

All the way they had been walking in silence, Kahlan in front, the Mord Sith close behind her. The agiel had touched her briefly time and again to urge her on and Kahlan wasn´t sure whether this gruesome woman just enjoyed the short hisses she acquired from the Confessor each time she pushed her weapon against her back or if she didn´t even care; the woman had not once made a sound behind her, so that Kahlan considered her to be as confused as she was and that probably each of them was lost in their mind, allowing their own thoughts to wander freely on the paths this day had established. And there was so much food for thought...

AN2: Thank you all for the kind words and the warm welcome ! There is nothing as motivating for a writer as the comments their readers leave to let them know their work is appreciated!! ;)

Chapter 1

Kahlan winced and groaned as she slowly came around and then gasped for air.
She needed a moment, struggling against the ponderosity that lay on her lids like lead. Against the biting pain, its echos still raging under her skin; greedily tearing at her consciousness like a starving wolf...
Only tediously her brain started working.

Prologue

It was late afternoon and soft sun-rays put a golden shimmering light onto the clearance. First shadows already lurked between the rocks and promised nightfall was near. It was that time of the day when birds fell silent, searching their hideouts for the night; when their melodic chirping gave way to that expectant quietness before the shadow creatures would wake from their sleep to put their noses into the winds and go for the hunt...
