Chapter C

Chance is lord of all.


If Aaron’s musket had been loaded-

If his gunsman had aimed slightly lower when he shot at Keiran-

If Keiran had appeared a moment later-

If Beatrix hadn’t run away-

If they hadn’t fallen in love-

If Roald hadn’t died-

If Aaron hadn’t been born-

All these things, and more. But they all pointed in one direction.

The End
