The door dinged once more, and this time the cold air swept in Elder Thane and his young son. The tattlers at the Miller’s Wheel couldn’t decide whether Elder Thane’s boy was backward, or just another ‘queer one’.

Devon Ferney managed to untangle his spectacles from his weathered face. He started wiping them against his old wool scarf, blinking all the while like a newborn kitten.
