Ballaloch, Scotland1305 Bram MacKinloch couldn't remember the last time he'd eaten or slept. The numbness consumed him, and all he could do now was keep going. He'd been imprisoned in the darkness for so many years, he'd forgotten what the sun felt like upon his skin. It blinded him, forcing him to keep his gaze fixed upon the ground. God's bones, he couldn't even remember how long he'd been running. Exhaustion had blotted away the visions until he didn't know how many English soldiers were pursuing him or where they were now. He'd stayed clear of the valley, keeping to the hills and the fir trees that would hide him from view. His clothing and hair were soaked, after he'd swum through a river to mask his scent from the dogs. Had there been dogs? He couldn't remember anymore. Shadows blurred his mind, until he didn't know reality from the nightmares. Keep going, he ordered himself. Don't stop. Not now. His footing slipped as he crossed the top of the hill and he stumbled to the ground. Before he rose, he listened hard for the sound of his pursuers. Nothing. Silence stretched across the Highlands, with only the sound of birds and insects breaking the stillness. He grabbed at the grass, using it to regain his balance. After he stood, he turned in a slow circle in all directions. From the top of the hill, he could see no one. Only the vast expanse of craggy green mountains and the clouded sky above him. Freedom. He drank in the sight, savouring the open air and the land that he'd missed these past seven years. Though he was far from home, these mountains were known to him, like old friends. Bram steadied his breathing, taking a moment to rest. He should have been grateful that he'd broken free of his prison, but guilt held him captive now. His brother Callum was still locked away in that godforsaken place. Let him be alive, Bram prayed. Let it not be too late. If he had to sell his own soul, he'd get Callum out. Especially after the price he'd paid for his own freedom. He started moving west, towards Ballaloch. If he kept up his pace, it was possible to reach the fortress within the hour. He hadn't been there in years, not since he was sixteen. The MacPhersons would grant him shelter, but would they remember or even recognise him? Cold emptiness filled him, and he rubbed at his scarred wrists. The days without any rest had taken their toll, causing his hands to shake. What he wouldn't give for a dreamless night, one where his mind no longer tormented him. But one dream held steady, of the woman he'd thought about each night over the past seven years. Nairna. Despite the nightmares of his imprisonment, he'd kept her image fixed in his mind. Her green eyes, the brown hair that fell to her waist. The way she'd smiled at him, as if he were the only man she'd ever wanted. A restless sense of regret pulled at him, as he wondered what had happened to her over the years. Had she grown to hate him? Or had she forgotten him? Fiction Fiction eBook, Harlequin
