Sample text:

A voice snaked through the night, addressing Herraoud.

 “Take your hands off of her.” It was him! He’d shown up as promised, and sounded quite angry. It was obvious he did not like what he’d just witnessed.

 “This is none of your business, sir!” Herraoud hissed, not looking at the voice, his eyes burning into his daughter. She would no longer mock him, by looking so like his wife. He drew back his arm to hit her again. Jannessa flinched back, awaiting the blow that never came.

“Unhand me.” Her father yelled.

“Non, I don’t think I shall. You will never hit the Lady Jannessa again. This I do promise you.”

“I am a father, disciplining his willful and obstinate child. This is, again, not your business.” Jannessa’s father let go of her dress, causing her to stumbling to the garden wall. It also gave her a chance to look at her savior. He was dressed all in black, against custom, with silver, Celtic cross at his neck. It was larger than the one Jannessa wore, and didn’t have the gemstone, but otherwise was identical. He had been correct, Jannessa, even without hearing his voice, would have known him in an instant.
