Ren guessed. It was a common problem in cribs, and even in a few families where the number of wives was high. Raven looked bleak and confused. ‘‘They cut out his tongue, I suppose to ensure his silence, but botched it completely. ’’ Ren trembled. ‘‘What kind of animals could do this? Rape a man, then maim him so. What if he got you with child? What do you tell your daughter? ’’ Raven shrugged. ‘‘When your family’s been bred out of the cribs, you don’t talk about how you got pregnant. You go into an unlit room, a man half incoherent with drugs ruts on top of you, breaks your hymen—hopefully plants a fertile seed—and you leave.

Raven’s tap came at the door. ‘‘Enter,’’ she called, trying to control her grin and failing. ’’ Raven used the royal plural. The captain carried a steaming pail of water. ’’ Ren unrolled the nightshirt and carefully folded it, vowing to herself never to wash it. A farmers’ son, no matter how beautiful or talented, could never be prince consort. Last night, though, had been glorious, and stopping where they did made it all the more pure. Raven lifted one eyebrow in question and poured the water into the washbasin bowl.

The river was near enough to smell over the bruised corn and the hot horses. The Whistlers dismounted, tied off their horses, and went silent as wolves into the woods. Ren wanted to follow, but she knew her own value. Her life wasn’t worth the capture of the cannons. There too was the niggling thought that the small woodlot would be a perfect ambush site by the Whistlers. She signaled to her women to ready weapons, wishing she had told Raven of her indiscretion. Now, on the cusp of battle, would be a foolish time to make her women doubt their allies.
