The wind that brought the rain still smelled of the ocean ten miles inland. Garrett and Marla sat together inside the broken hulk of an old wagon, listening to the staccato rhythm of water dripping down from the trees onto the ragged canvas tarp above their heads. Garrett’s fingers and toes ached with the chill through his gloves and boots, even though his purple robe clung to his skin, damp, and uncomfortably warm.
Marla’s dark hair lay flat against the sides of her face, and her eyes seemed distant and sad as she gazed into the misty forest across the road. Her gray traveling garb blended against the shadowy bed of the overturned wagon. Her pale face and hands shone in ghostly contrast.
