Yelps diffuse, three black dog's sprint caravan center to greet them. They were each rounded as indicated by the arrow & mdash; undoubtedly Prince kennel. She knelt on one knee, his injuries protest at the border, holding their heads as she stroked the hair smooth. They lick his fingers and face, cut back on their tail as she stopped in front whips.A ebony boots on the ground, the dog immediately sat quiet. Celaena looked up to find her prince research Adarlan sapphire eyes face. He smiles. How unusual that you notice, he said, scratching the dog behind the ear. You give them food? She shook her head, the captain came in behind her, so close to his scraped knee forest - green velvet mantle folds. This will take two steps to unblock all him.Are you like dogs? Asked the prince. She nodded. Why it is so hot? How can I hear your voice, and you are determined to silence the pleasure of our trip for the blessing? I'm afraid your question is not worth the oral response.Dorian worshiped. So, excuse me, lady! How should deign to answer is terrible! Next time, I'll try to think of more exciting words. This way, he turned and walked away, his dog's tail, then him.She frowned, and she got up. His extensive frown when she found out the captain of the guard laughing as they walked into the fray ready for business. However, the desire unbearable splashing everywhere when they brought her mare piebald ride.She reducing human wall mounted. Sky is closer, it is still stretched above her, far away in distant lands, she had never heard of. Celaena grab the saddle horn. It is really left Endovier. All those desperate months, the cold night. . . Now he's gone. She took a deep breath she knew & mdash ;. She knows & mdash; if she tries hard enough, she could steal his saddle. That is, until she felt his crowbar arms.It Chaol is attached to his wrist bandaged chains. long chain led to his horse, he disappears under the seat. He mounted his horse, she thought her vault, and using a chain hang him from the nearest tree.It is a fairly large company set twenty. 2 Empire flags bearing the horse guard behind the prince and duke Perrington. Then six of the Guard, dull and boring with porridge. But training for it & mdash protect; her. Jingling it his chains to his saddle and waved his Chaol eyes. He did not react.The sun rose higher. They provide a final check, they left. Most of slave labor and mines, only a small number of dilapidated shed labor refining giant nearly empty courtyard. Wall suddenly emerges, the blood in his veins beat. The last time she had been so close to the wall. . .The Crack Whip sounded, followed by a scream. Celaena looked over his shoulder, breaks before the guard and supplies to the nearly empty courtyard. These slaves left here & mdash; even when they are dead. Each week, they dug a mass grave behind the new hangar at the refinery. And every week, these graves began full up.She also aware of three long scars on his back. Although she won her freedom. . . Although she lived in a rural tranquility. . . These scars will always remind her of what she will live. And even if it is free, other not.Celaena, pushing those thoughts from his mind, as they pass through the wall into the channel. The interior is almost thick black smoke and damp. My voice echoed like rolling thunder. Iron Gate opened, she caught a glimpse of my wicked shall be appointed in two, and waved off. In just a heartbeat, the door closed behind them groan. Out.She she moved her hand in their bondage, watching the swing of the chain clank between her and the captain of the guard. He was tied to the saddle, which is his horse, who, when they stop tightening, can be subtle rather unscrupulous to prevent the end of a fierce tug of war, the chain will tear the beast saddle, he will roll on the ground, it would be & mdash; she felt the attention of Captain Westfall. He fixed his eyebrows droop down, pursed his lips tight, she shrugged her shoulders, she gave up wearing them chain.As morning, the sky turned bright blue little clouds. Taking the road from the forest, they move quickly and in a country.By morning they just Oakwald in the forest, surrounded by woods Endovier and served as the Continental Divide in western countries and the Eastern civilization Endovier unknown area between mountain wilderness. Legends still tell who lived there and strange and deadly people mdash; cruel and bloodthirsty offspring of the fallen woman Wuwang Guo. Celaena once met a young woman from the curse of the land, even if it is both cruel and bloodthirsty, it was just one person. And still bleed like silent one.After hours Celaena Chaol management. Rumor has it that once the king and his Wendlyn After the war, he will begin the colonial West. She said in passing, but I hope he will confirm or deny. The more she knew the current position of the king and towers, the better. The captain looked up and down, frowned, then looked away. I agree, she said, sighing loudly. These vast plains, empty and the fate of these poor mountain seems clear to me that well.His jaw clenched as he grabbed his teeth.Do you gonna ignore me forever? Captain Westfall eyebrows rise. I do not know what I did to you. She pursed her lips, check her irritation. She would not give him the satisfaction. How old are you? Twenty- two.So Young! She hit her eyelashes, looking at a part of his answer. Only a few years to climb the ranks of the latter? He nodded. And how old are you? XVIII. But he said nothing. I know, she continued. What is impressive is that I finished so early in such age.Crime is not an achievement, Sardothien.Yes, but to become more famous assassin in the world! He did not answer. You may ask me, how did it.Did what? He said tightly.Became so talented and so famous quickly.I it.Those not want to hear it wanted hear.You're not very good, she said through her teeth. If she was going to get under his skin, and she had to push a lot harder.You're crime. I was captain of the royal guard. I have no obligation to give you any mercy or dialogue. Grateful we will not let you wagon.Yes locked, well, I bet you're a pretty unpleasant conversation, even if you have given a good person. When he did not answer again, Celaena can not help but feel a bit stupid. Minutes passed. Crown Prince and you close friends? My personal life is none of your concern.She clicking his tongue. How well are you born? Quite well. His chin lifted almost imperceptibly higher.Duke? No.Lord? He did not answer, she smiled slowly. Chaol main Westfall. It violently with one hand. How you must seduce the ladies! Do not call me. I do not give the title of lord, said he had quietly.You a brother? No.Then Why do not you assume the title? Again, no response. She knew she should stop prying eyes, but she could not help it. Scandal? They are deprived of a birthright? What kind of disorder in the land in which you are involved? His lips pressed so tightly they turned white leaned toward him. Do you think & mdash; I want to gag you, or that you can not help me is the silence? He looked straight ahead to the crown prince, his face white again.She try not to laugh when he made a face, she began to speak. Are you married? No.She picking her nails. I'm not married either. His nostrils. How old were you when you became a captain of the guards do? He grabbed the reins of his horse. Twenty.The party settlement pause and soldiers dismounted. Chaol his face, who in his horse brandishing a leg. Why should we stop? Chaol decoupled from its string saddle and gave him a firm sign removed disassembly. Lunch he said.Chapter 5Celaena brushed his face lock of hair, and are guided to the open space. If she wants to be free, she had to go through Chaol first. If they were alone, she could try, although the chain will be difficult, but the surrounding formation of the Imperial Guard did not hesitate to kill. . The food .Chaol fire boxes and bags of supplies yet close to his side. Soldiers rolled newspaper in a small circle, where they sit, and their companions stirred speculation. The dog Prince, who dutifully trot along their master assassin approached wagging his tail at her feet. At least one person was glad she company.Hungry with a plate in his lap finally put time Celaena become more than a little annoyed when the captain did not remove his irons immediately. After giving him a long look of warning, he gave his open chain and tighten on her ankle. She rolled her eyes, she raised a small portion of meat to his lips. She chewed slowly. She needed the last thing to be sick in front of them. While the soldiers talking to each other, Celaena its surroundings. She sat and Chaol five soldiers. Prince, of course, sitting Perrington its two newspapers, far from it. While Dorian was quite arrogant and entertainment the night before, it is characterized by severe, because he spoke the Duke. His whole body seemed to tense up, she did not notice her teeth when speaking Perrington. Regardless of their relationship, which is cordial.Midbite, Celaena attention on the trees of the Prince Edward school. Forest went silent. Ebony erect ears hound, but they do not seem to be troubled by the silence. Even the soldiers disappear. His heart skipped a beat. Forests are different replacement leaves a predetermined sparkle like jewelry & mdash; rubies, pearls, topaz, amethyst, emerald, garnet tiny droplets, and this wealth carpet the floor of the forest around them. Despite the ravages of the conquest of this part of the forest Oakwald remains unchanged. He was still able beauty.She'd with these trees were residual echo against nature eight hours Arobynn Hamel, his mentor and the murderer King, found his half- submerged in the ice bank of the river he took her constantly brought to the border and Adarlan Terrasen. Even if it was his best trained assassins and loyal, Arobynn never allow him to go home Terrasen. But she still remembers the beautiful Adarlan king ordered the world so before combustion. Now there is nothing left for her here, there will not ever. Arobynn never said aloud, but if she refused his offer of his train, he had given to those who killed him. Or worse. She was isolated again, even eight years, she knew he Arobynn a life, and no one would recognize, but one day, everyone will fear a new name, a chance to start. To escape, she jumped into the icy river leads to the night for 10 years, said that the fate of the ago.Damned forest, olive complexion soldiers in their circle. The soldiers around him laugh. He burned the sooner the better, I say. Other soldiers nodded stiffly Celaena. It is full of hatred, says another. She had time to see his eyes, blurred her skin drove through ridderak Dharma Rees face.Pain cut through his profession as they hit the wall and fell to the ground, before dissemination treasure. black blood sprayed stinking garbage to her.She has not moved, not as good as it looked at the barely-inch black eyes of his own, not because she thinks black between his teeth, holding her right hand she has blood dripping down his chin. She shook her panting, did not accept his left hand from the handle, even in the hungry eyes turned dull, sagging body on his amulet hers.It only beating again, she blinked. After that, everything becomes a series of steps to dance, she must perform perfectly, it disintegrate there in the tomb was never up.She first dig his hands from his teeth. He ruthlessly burned. Gushing arc stabbed around her thumb, she shakes her feet, she pushed her ridderak. This is surprisingly light & mdash; as if bones are hollow, or have no inside. While the rest of the world to become hazy edge, she suddenly Damar Rees skull.She his shirt to wipe the blade clean, Gavin, and put it where it belongs. That's why they take him to Samhuinn tomb, right? So she can see Damaris, and there are ways to save? Where she left in a crumpled heap on top of the pile lay a biological jewel. Who wanted to save to clean. She enough.Still, next sarcophagus Celaena suspended Elena, looking at the beautiful carved marble face. Thank you, she said hoarsely. Blurred vision, she left the tomb staggered stairs, grabbed his hand bleeding chest.When she was relieved her own room inside, Celaena through the door of his room, leaning there, panting as she opened it the door. His injuries are not yet coagulated blood was still pouring his wrist. She was dripping on the floor. It should go to the room to take a bath to wash hands. His hands feel like ice. It should & mdash; her legs and gives Celaena collapsed. His eyelids became heavy, she closed it. Why his heart was pumping so slow? She opened her eyes and looked at his hands. His vision blurred, and all she could do the pink and red mess. Ice in his hand reached his arms along his legs.She heard booming thunder noise. Thump, thump, thump, then whine. Through her eyes, she could see the light in the room heard a darken.She & mdash; & Mdash woman, and a warm hand grabbed his face. She was so cold, almost burnt. One man left the window open? Lillian! This is Nehemia. She shook her shoulders Celaena. Lillian! How do you think? Celaena remember that a few moments. Strong arms lifted and she ran into the bathroom. Nehemia nervous, because she wore Celaena in the bathtub, where she denied Celaena clothing. Celaena hand touched the water when burned, his defeat, but the princess held her company, she did not understand the murderer of language. pulse light of the room, and tingling of the skin. Celaena found covered with bright green sign with his arm mdash; Wyrdmarks. Nehemia in water by holding, rocking back and devour her forth.Blackness up.Chapter 43Celaena opened his eyes. It is warm, the gold candle. She could feel the lotus flowers, and a little nutmeg. She made a small sound and blinked, trying to get out of bed What happened? She could not remember the stairs, then hide the secret door behind the tapestry & mdash; Celaena surprised, grabbed his coat, amazed, because she found somehow turned into a nightgown, then her hands frightened sigh, she rose into the air. It heals and mdash; completely healed. The only remaining wound his thumb and marks the index and little bite of the lower teeth in a half-moon scar between ridderak. She ran every white scar chalk, tracing their fingers curve and twist his fingers to make sure no nerves severed.How is this possible? This is the magic & mdash; it was for her pain. She lifted her, she did not see alone.Nehemia sitting near a chair, staring at her. View her lips did not smile, and transfer Celaena, because she saw the young woman in the eyes of mistrust. She was Fleetfoot feet.What thing? Celaena asked.That what I expected you to ask, said Eyllwe princess. She has the body Celaena. If I do not find you, bite you several minutes.Even she dropped on the blood of soil were killed in cleaning. Thank you, she said, and she began to look at the dark sky beyond the windows. What day is today? If I do not know why in two days later, she missed the last test and mdash; it's just done three years hours.Celaena sagging shoulders. She did not miss it. She still training tomorrow after the test. I do not understand. How & mdash; it does not matter, Nehemia interrupted. I want to know where you have been. Only the blood in your room & mdash; in the hall no trace of it or else.Celaena clenched hand and let go of his hand, looking at the scars to stretch and contract. She came so close to death. She looked at his eyes princess back to his hand. Whether Nehemia participation is, it does not meet Cain.I'm I pretended not who he is, Celaena said quietly, unable to meet the eyes of her friend. Lillian Gordaina does not exist. Nehemiah did not say anything. Celaena be looking into the eyes. Nehemia saved; how she could not believe, Nehemia can be an organizational control? The fact is that, at least, she had her friend. My name is Celaena Sardothien.Nehemia mouth slightly open. She slowly shook her head. But they sent you Endovier. You should be Endovier with & mdash; Nehemia looked. You say that farmers and mdash; Eyllwe slaves in Endovier. Here's how you learn. Celaena the breathing becomes a little difficult. Nehemia lips trembling. You will. . . You will Endovier? Endovier is a death camp. However. . . Why do you not me? You do not believe me? Of course, I know, she said. Especially now, it has been proved beyond doubt that it is not responsible for the murders. I ordered the king did not speak a word of it.a this word? Nehemiah said sternly, blinking back tears. The king knows you're here? He gave you the order? I am here for your enjoyment. Celaena stand upright in bed I came here because he chaired the competition is the king's warriors. After winning & mdash; if I win, I want to work for the king for four years as his minions and murderers. Then I came out, my name cleared.Nehemia just looked at her, cursed with white stare.You think I want here? Celaena screamed, even though it made her head pound. It is this or Endovier! I had no choice. She put her hand on his chest. Before you start lecturing me on my manners, or before fleeing and hiding behind their bodyguards, just know that there is not a moment, that time, I did not know it would be like for him and kill mdash, which destroys the man I love! She could not breathe fast enough, not as the door opens and closes his heart, and make their own image Celaena forget everything in her eyes glistened. She closed her hope in the darkness. Nehemia silence. Fleetfoot moaned. In quiet places people ,,, words echoed in his mind.Then, traces. They bring her back. Mattresses groaned and sighed, sitting Nehemia. Second, lighter joined her & mdash; Fleetfoot.Nehemia the Celaena hand in her warm and dry. Celaena opened his eyes, but looking at the opposite wall room.Nehemia shook his hand. You are my dearest friend, Celaena. It hurts me & mdash makes me more harm than I realized it would be & mdash; things got so cold between us. You see, you see I do not trust your eyes. I do not want you to see me through this again. So I want to give you what I gave minority. His dark eyes flashing. The name does not matter. This is what your internal affairs. I know you've crossed Endovier. I know my people stand there, day after day. But you do not let mine harden you; do not let you humiliate your soul cruelty.The princess in her hand traced the sign, his fingers pressed into the skin Celaena. You wear many names, so I name you. Celaena his hand raised on the forehead, she drew an invisible sign. Elentiya my name. She kissed the forehead of the murderer. I give you that name in honor to use, when to use too much growth in other names. Elentiya my name, & lsquo; and ... The spirit can not be broken "Celaena is held in place, she may feel in the fall after the name, it's like a shimmering veil that does not exist Friends unconditional love such as this it. why she was so lucky to have found you Come, Nehemiah said tell me how you became brilliantly Adarlan assassin, and how the liquidator in the castle, and it is mdash ;? .. what are the details of this competition Celaena He smiled ridiculous Fleetfoot wagged his tail and licked arm.She Nehemiah saved his life and mdash; somehow the answer will come after so Celaena spoke.The next morning Celaena Chaol passed her eyes in the marble floor. the hall. radiation outside the solar snow in the garden, so that the light in the room is almost blinding. Nehemia she said almost everything. there are things she never told anyone, she did not mentioned biological or hidden, either. Nehemia not asked him again what happened to bite the hand but has to stay with her, curled up in bed, they talked late into the night. Celaena, not knowing how she was going to bed later, and now she could Cain know, thank you for the company said. she put her coat around her tightly. frigid.You're artificial calm morning. Chaol kept his eyes before them today. Dorian and you quarrel? Dorian. he was arrested last night, but Nehemia drove before his departure, he may enter the bedroom. no, I have not seen him since yesterday morning after the event last night, yesterday morning as one week ago.Did you like ballroom dancing with him? he was a little sharp words? she turned, as they turned a corner, heading toward a personal training room. you leave, and early. I would have thought you'd want to keep me, I think you do not need all night.You anymore.I not need you see me start.He shrugged. Now, I know you do anywhere.Outside, a howling wind lifted Snow Flurry, sending sparkling waves in the air. I could come back Endovier.You won't.How you know? I give myself just confidence.He know.That bunch chuckled to quarrel room. I'm surprised after your dog does not work for everyone, and it did exactly now.If you have a pet, you do not joke, gloomily.I've said she never had a pet I never thought a .that maybe some dogs may have ended up with an elbow as companion.He stabbed a blessing. she smiled and shot back elbow. she wanted to talk to Cain. she wanted to tell her that when she was in the morning he saw the door of his house. She wanted to tell him. Chaol said nothing, he began to walk. She and Nehemia picked up behind him, and when they crossed a small courtyard, clock tower station Celaena Cain looked there was just kneeling there. He pulls out a package marked in strange land empty stone, make clearer signs. What do you think? She asked the princess, engraved in the sign pointing tiles. And why Cain is cleaning? A Wyrdmark, princess replied that it is up to the eyebrows Celaena language.Celaena own name. It's just a circle inside a triangle. You can read these tags? She asked. A Wyrdmark. . . How strange! No, Nehemiah said quickly. They are an ancient religion was part of a long dead religion ago.What do? Celaena asked. You see, there is another. She highlighted a few feet away in another sign. He was with a reverse peak middle.You upwardly extending a vertical line should leave him alone, Nehemiah said abruptly, and Celaena blinked. Such neglected, you talk about a reason.What? Q Chaol, and she explained the main points of their conversation. When she finished, he curled his lip but said nothing.They continue and Celaena saw another sign. This is a strange form: a small diamond protruding from both sides of the two reversal points. Diamond Peak top and bottom elongated in a straight line, and it seems to be symmetrically perfect. When the king of them carved, he built a tower, or they before? Nehemia looking at his forehead and Celaena asked if dirt, my face? No, Nehemiah said a little distant relative, his brow knotted, she studied Celaena front. Princess Celaena suddenly watching eyes are a little fierce assassin decline. You know nothing about Wyrdmarks? Belfry echoes. No, Celaena said. I do not know what them.You're hide something, Eyllwe princess said softly, although they are not to blame. You seem much more than you, Lillian.I & mdash; Well, I hope I'm more than a few courtiers giggle, she has so much bravado it together. She smiled broadly, Nehemia hope will stop looking so strange, and stop looking at his forehead. Can you teach me how to speak properly Eyllwe? If you can tell me your most ridiculous language, said the princess, although caution is still wandering eye. Nehemia see what causes his behavior? It is a transaction, Celaena said with a faint smile. Just do not tell him. Westfall Captain left me alone in the afternoon. An hour before dinner is five o'clock tomorrow perfect.Then I come, Nehemiah said. Princess smiled and began to walk again, his dark eyes sparkle. After her.Chapter 24Celaena lying in bed, on the floor looking at the pool under the moonlight Celaena only follow.

It is only at midnight, even if they have another test tomorrow, she could not sleep. His eyes were too heavy to read, she can not play the piano, but also for fear of embarrassing encounter, it would not be what the holidays are like fantasy to entertain. She was still wearing her blue dress emerald, too lazy to follow clear change.She moon, it covers the walls of tapestry. Tapestry is very strange, old, not carefully preserved. drooping trees, dotted with a large forest animal pictures.

Before you cry, she uttered the last, he swung opened.A dark wave passing her.A breeze blew through the black depths, pulling his hair strands on his face. A shiver down his spine. Why would wind inward? Especially when it is blown out of the tapestry? She looked at the bed, this is the book, she does not see that scattered tonight. She stepped into the passageway.The candle light revealed, which is made of stone and covered with a thick layer of dust. She went back to her room. If it is to explore, she needs appropriate arrangements. Unfortunately, she did not have a sword or dagger. Celaena his candle. It also needs a mdash of the torch, or at least part of the additional candlestick. Or? . . . . . . .
