Leontina gasps as the carriage rolls over a root, jolting her and her fellow passengers. With an effort, she breathes slowly through her nostrils. She wants to show poise suitable for her station, but her nerves have gotten the better of her since the coup. The road is old and seldom used. Thought she can’t see it with the shutters latched tightly shut, she can feel the ancient path beneath her as the carriage winds through the forest. The air is damp and heavy. This wilderness will smother them. The countryside is not the idyll she envisioned.
