Arianna stood at the top of the watch tower, this had been her practice ever since James went to war against the Saxons.
There has been no news and she would not let the long wait deter her from keeping an occasional watch each evening till the moon came out.
She prayed every night fervently for his safe return. She won’t mind his battle scars, they will be his mark of honor. She wants him back in her arms where he has promised to belong always.
