Excerpt from The Stealing Moon
Chapter 1
Will Rafer felt a chill pass through him. It gripped his heart and squeezed it, making it bleed fear. Will gasped for breath. Fear and shame - old feelings, familiar as his own shadow.
Will stood in the autumn air in his longjohns. The outhouse, his destination, was clearly visible just a few yards away. The moon burned orange in the sky like an ember from a forgotten fire. It was the kind of night that Will's neighbors had always called a Comanche Moon - when those fierce, savage horsemen set forth to shed blood and steal lives.
Like they had shed blood on the Rafer place the autumn before.
A wolf howled in the distance - or was it a wolf? Will strained his ears, trying to isolate the source of the keening noise. Charles Goodnight had once told Will's father that only the human voice produces an echo; a man can tell the call of a real animal from an Indian imitator by listening closely. Will struggled to apply Mister Goodnight's advice, but to no avail.
He stumbled his way into the outhouse and half-sat, half-collapsed inside. The darkness was a comfort to him. He crouched inside the little shed, not daring to move - seventeen years old, he thought to himself in disgust, and hiding like a kid.
But he did not move. The night crawled by, and the stink settled into Will's clothes.
