Only the great stag stood regarding us, his tawny pelt shimmering in the growing light of morning. We had scattered her ashes high in the hills. But next to me Lailoken let out a puff of breath. She was just there. Because he was my twin, I could feel his tears before they began.
We are living in unprecedented times. Fewer still want to open Prickings from museums and teacher's collections of Bedfordshire lace adapted by Anita Wilkenson. Also, the next person listed a comic book reference. Les Johnson's, Tell Everyone, takes you through the jarring experiences of loss and pain that left him without a wife, and almost without his daughter, Heather.
I sank down onto the pebbled bank. My brother sank down beside me. And together we poured our grief into the slowly waking world. All the while the stag moved softly in the shallows. Perhaps tomorrow the beast would come no more—after all, it had been nine days. Cathan the Wisdom Keeper said nine was the most magical of numbers. I was wiping my face with the corner of my cloak when Lail stiffened. He lifted a finger and gestured to the edge of the nearby thicket, where a brown hare was hunched beyond the brambles, its head tilted as if it were listening.
Lail watched as it shivered its whiskers and scampered into the forest, his gaze following its trail.
He brings news from the east. It had been Lail who had woken from sleep that first morning after Mother died and heeded the call to the river. My brother had a gift for reading such signs from the Gods. We were only ten winters—Lailoken was young to have such skill. Yet Lail could not make sense of why the great deer had come.
Messengers came often to Cadzow with news for our father, but never before had Lailoken foreseen one.
I shifted on the stones, straining to hear the sound of hoofbeats I knew were not yet approaching. A rider was coming—it was only a matter of when—and soon our nursemaid Crowan would wake to find our beds empty.
I knew we should hurry, yet I could not take my eyes from the water. Do you think if we stayed. But then he shook his head and wiped his nose on the back of his hand. I felt the small stab as he shut me out again and looked to the cliff top, where a yolky sun was filtering through the forest. The spell of dawn had broken. In the current, the stag shifted and meandered toward the opposite bank.
I wanted to rest my head on his smooth flanks, make my mother reappear so she could chase away the emptiness. But we moved instead to climb the trail, turning our backs on the water. As we reached the little gully where our mother had so often sat by our side, I heard the echo of her voice rising up from the depths of my longing.
She had called out my name in the darkness of my dream.
But her voice had not been tender or full of love. Her voice had been full of warning. Reading Group Guide. About The Author. Photograph by Tiffany Mizzell Photography. Signe Pike. Product Details. Related Articles.
