"Does it matter?"

"To me it does."

She glanced down at his hand. Kerrigan let go as he realized his grip must be biting.

"Why?" she asked simply. "You have told me repeatedly that you hold no regard for my life. What then does it matter how I'm treated by my master?"

It shouldn't matter. He shouldn't care at all. And yet…

"Why do you wish to return to such a life?"

"Because it was my life, Kerrigan. Mine. And it was a good one. I had friends who loved me." Her gaze turned dreamy. "Wendlyn is a beautiful girl who works beside me in the shop. She has a crush on the butcher's son who comes by to deliver meat to Mistress Maude. Then there is Mildred, who weaves off to the side. She doesn't say much, but she hums often to herself. And there's Robert, Master Rufus's son who will turn eight this year. He's a bit mischievous, but a good lad nonetheless who oft fetches us supplies when we need them."

He could hear the love in her voice as she spoke of the people who'd made up her world. "But if they treat you badly—"

"I never said they treated me badly. All of us have an off day or two. We are human and should be forgiven our faults."

He shook his head at her. "You astound me, Seren. I've never met anyone with your capacity for caring."

She lifted herself up on her toes until their gazes were almost level. "Then you've been spending time with the wrong sorts of people, my lord. Perhaps you should get out more."

He laughed out loud, amazed at the sound of something he hadn't heard in a lifetime. "Perhaps I should."

As Kerrigan turned back toward the window and the army that was still pounding his shield, he sobered.

With every pounding beat of the battering ram, he could feel that strike against his powers.

They were weakening him. Each blow shattered through his body, pounding painfully.

"Aw, screw this," he snarled an instant before he threw his hands out and sent a shatter bolt of lightning through the gargoyles and dragons.

Seren was stunned as the very air around them shimmered from his powers. Even her hair stood on end as what appeared to be lightning shot from Kerrigan's fingertips to the gargoyles who were battering his invisible shield.

The tree splintered into tiny pieces that rained through the air. The gargoyles went hurtling toward the ground. Kerrigan started to laugh, until he stumbled again. The lightning shot back into his body as he braced his hand against the stone sill.
