Glowering was what she did best. Normally she took pleasure from the children shrinking back from her gaze. It kept them out of her beans. Her dour disposition was as familiar as the paths about her cottage. Today, however, she wished the skill away.

Not the face you want, but I’m what you have.” The path behind remained clear. She swore that was the glow of light though. They were gaining and the tower was still far away.
