Much later that evening, in a small camp lodged deep within the swamps, Gabriel dismounted and strode through the lounging men towards a campfire set off from the rest. A lone man slouched there, alternately sipping wine and pouring hot lead into a mold to create ammunition for his pistol.

“Your sister misses you,” he stated quietly to the crouched figure.

“I have no sister,” his quiet retort without looking up.

“You do,” Gabriel stated forcefully, “and she misses you.”

At that remark, his father turned tired eyes to look up at him. “I understand you two met today.” He made a statement, expecting no further explanation and Gabriel offered none. The details of what had been said were between Kathryn and him, the business of no one else. “She has chosen her bed. If it is cold, it is of her own making.” His voice was terse.

“Far from cold, father.” His intent was to shock, to break the icy barrier his father had erected to prevent the pain of feeling. “It is over two years and she loves that man with a devotion so intense . . . so intense.” He could not find the words to express his thoughts appropriately. “He cannot be all bad.”

Jamie eyed his son with a fierce anger, but after a moment calmed himself and returned to the task at hand. Gabriel watched silently, then turned to go tend his horse. As he stepped away, he heard the soft, painful inquiry.

“She … is well? And the child?”
