Chapter 16 Marks
- Arian saw through Jed's eyes how his own father sheltered and cared for Jed. Saw his mate pleading with Sheriff Blaidd not to tell his father what Quade had done. "A boy has to honor his father. I can't destroy Quade in daddy's eyes..." He saw his father reluctantly agree, until it was needed.
