"You wish to think on your choices?"
Keon's soft voice is gentle. So many emotions cross Star's face. Horror intermingles with anger, indecision, and resolution. She nods, her small hand gripping Erik's arm. Keon rises, bowing to the couple.
"Again, I give you my congratulations on your betrothal. You deserve happiness."
Picking up his plate, Keon moves to join Guunnar and his young women. As he takes a seat among the youngsters, he watches Star rest her head on Erik's arm. What a terrible set of choices I have given such a rare young woman and her mate slides through his mind.
