Resurrection

at the limits

“I thought it’d only take a few days.”

Major Colquhoun Grant shielded his eyes against the sunlight streaming through the broken boards in the walls of the windmill. He could just see the magician, huddled in the furthest, darkest corner of the narrow walkway. He was hugging his knees, swigging occasionally from a half-empty bottle of spirits. His face was pale, drawn, and there was a glinting, wild kind of light in his eyes which Grant did not like at all. Strange resembled nothing so much as a cornered animal, miserable and ill but still dangerous in its desperation.
