Ertzel was silent for a moment or two, then replied, "Sileas wants to sit with Uncle Shawn and Yehudit of course wants to be at her side."

It was not what Ertzel was saying, but how she said it. What she said made sense but she almost sounded like she was lying. But Ertzel never lied, she was an honest girl brought up right.

"Okay." Liadan said.

Liadan had been sleeping lightly and woke quickly to Difyr's tap on the door. She quietly crept to the door so she would not wake any of the small children and opened it.

"Difyr, what is it?"

"What do you mean is Sileas awake? Sileas isn't here." Liadan took a quick look around the room, it was just her younger children. "She and Yehudit are supposed to be with Shawn." Liadan frowned, remembering how slow Ertzel had been to answer earlier.

Liadan stormed into the room, determined to make it secure so her eldest daughter would not go hobbling off with that flame-haired trouble seeker. She noticed that blankets had been spread around the room, making the refuge homey. Liadan felt herself tearing up. Aron had always been more domestic than her, he knew how to make a place a home and was always a better parent.

Liadan winced. Vikki's behavior had been terrible lately. Almost enough to distract her from Yehudit's strange behavior. Liadan could not get a straight answer from Yehudit, who seemed to be avoiding everyone these days. Liadan worried about all her children especially Vikki and Yehudit. She felt like a failure as a mother.

The ice bit into Liadan's back. The hands clasped on her arms and shoulders were like iron. Her nose and split lip were bleeding, her mouth was full of blood. She had to squint through two black eyes to see the third man hovering over her, waving a knife. He had straight black hair and cruel blue-gray eyes. Liadan spat in his face. The man wiped the blood and saliva from his cheek.

"We'll beat that out of you." He said, swinging a backhand into her face and sending her head banging into the hard ice.

"It's not safe right now." Liadan squeezed Aron's arm. "With Sileas's wedding going on, Galina would try to ruin that."

Aron sucked in a breath. "Don't even think on that. Sileas deserves today after everything she has been through. One day of nothing but pure happiness and joy."

"That's why I'm taking no chances." Liadan said. She tried brushing her hair but it made no difference. "Let's get the children."

Re: The Keep - The Buckleys' Room
Now Aron was worried. He was hoping Bai might be thinking the same thing so he could monitor the wedding and the festivities. He followed along after Lia.

He kissed the top of her head. "I'll be back as soon as I can." He squeezed her hand and then left.

"No Aron! Vikki's-"

The top of Vikki's head flew out from under the bed and into Aron's nose.

"It's not like it's because she doesn't have shoes." Aron sighed. "Despite the fact we can't find them. But I think everyone knows children that age...they prefer being barefoot."

"I never had shoes until I came to Buckley Village..." Liadan watched her youngest come out from under the bed, covered in dust bunnies.

"Aye." Aron scooped up Vicki and made sure all the children were accounted for before leaving the room with his brood and heading for the main hall.
