After finishing her shower and drying herself off, Abby feels much better. Her headache is reduced to a minor throbbing and her nausea is nearly gone. Entering her bedroom, she quickly puts on some underwear, a pair of leggings and a baggy sweatshirt. Marcus’ shirt is still lying on the bathroom floor and after debating for a couple of seconds she picks it up and throws it in the laundry basket.

The Way of Arles: Chapter I

After her ex-fiance, Costia, passes away suddenly whilst travelling through Europe. Lexa must travel to Arles, France to bring her body home. It’s there she learns from the contents of her rucksack that Costia was walking the Camino de Santiago, a pilgrimage from the south of France to the shrine of St. James in Santiago, Spain.
