The trees moved closer every day. Robin tried not to think about it, but she could hardly help it. As her tutor droned on, her eyes would be drawn to the windows and she would see the boughs waving in the breeze. Sometimes they only came a few inches, but one day she looked out to see that they had covered a stretch several times the length of her body. That she wasn’t very tall to begin with was no consolation.
Robin Lomavsha was the only daughter of Atticus and Irca Lomavsha, a pair of minor nobles who intended to move their family up in society through their daughter. They insisted that she have a full education, and hardly a day went by that they didn’t comment on her beauty. She had enjoyed being petted and spoiled as a little girl, but she grew tired of being seen as nothing but a future bride around the time she turned fifteen.

I turned the bow to seaward and went forward to drop the hook in three fathoms. Paid out fifteen fathoms of chain. Plenty of scope. Then I rigged a bridle. I looked up at the heavens. Mackerel sky. Cyrrus. I remembered my first captain’s mantra. High feathers, heavy weathers. To seaward the sky was changing already. Thick cumulus on the horizon. Dark prophets, denizens of the storm.

The full moon had climbed over the ragged treetops, sending what little light it could into the full, black depths of the Taber Wood...but it was never enough. Old logging roads twisted and dipped all through the miles of ancient woodland, mazing their narrow way in and through the centuries old stands of silent, black trees.
