Part 9

And so Amel took Alivda to Lilac Hearth. He showed her everything except Ev’rel’s workshop. When he was done, Alivda wanted to know where they could go next.

“The Market Round?” Amel suggested.

“Food?” Alivda asked.

“Yes, they serve food,” Amel said. “But they have places to cut your hair there too.”

Alivda’s hand moved to her head and grabbed her hair.

“Yes, that,” Amel said. “It is getting very long, Diff.”

“No,” Diff said as if that settled the matter.

“How about haircut, then food?” Amel asked.

Alivda still looked wary.

“Why don’t we just go there and look around to start?” Amel tried again.

Alivda thought that sounded reasonable and nodded.
