Continuing on with my unedited Shifter and Girl-With-A-Secret WIP, Caitlyn draws the visiting band of shifters from the North into an empty room, as they mustn’t be seen talking together. She demands once again to know if they’ve come about Kyle. The leader of the shifters is answering her:
“Yes, we’ve come to this place for the third time in as many years, with the same bitter result.”
“What did the Witch Queen tell you?” Caitlyn said.
The man threw his heavy riding gloves onto the table. “She knew the time of indenture was only to be five years, she agreed to that, yet now the date is long past she won’t release him, claiming no term was ever set. We can’t prove it and she only laughs. She won’t even let us see him.”
“Kyle told me the agreement would end only upon his death,” Caitlyn whispered.
