All I had to do was meet a ship and escort a lady to meet her new husband. That seemed simple enough. Maybe my luck was finally changing.
However, I knew my luck was holding steady when I learned about the Black Beast pursing her. Of course, I discovered that after we were on the road. What's worse, to my surprise, I actually like Lady DuMond. Should I warn her about the fact Baron Charles Azul has a reputation as a lady killer, figuratively and literally?
And why are we only traveling at night?
Between the beast behind us and the one waiting for us, I don’t see how we’re getting out of this situation. But, I’m not going down without a fight.
