Alone in the dark
Jamie sat in the cold of the courtyard, completely alone in the darkness, staring out into the city’s skyline through the fence. His face was a collection of bruises, courtesy of Felix’s ministrations; it was a miracle his nose wasn’t broken–he didn’t mind them, though; they’d earned him this late-night outing. The physician who had been tending to his wounds had been kind enough to allow this, and the guards hadn’t protested. So here he was, alone in the dark. Until he caught the footfalls to his back. “Just another minute, please…” he whispered, bracing himself in the cold.
