Owen hoped he and Watcher could somehow become friends, but her demeanor was still cold. There was so much to discover. So much to do. And she could be such a help to him. But only time would tell.

Owen could not help but think about home, Tattered Treasures, his father, Constance, Gordan, and Mrs. Rothem. And what would Clara think of his absence?

“Where does she live?” Owen said.

“Far from here. The journey is dangerous. But I would take you if you desire it.”

A woman who looked like the mother he never knew? Owen would love to meet her. And with this new information, Owen knew he must make difficult choices in the coming days. “Perhaps while I search for the King's Son,” he said.
