    Summary

    The worst dreams were not his nightmares. He had faced blood and death since being a young man, had held his brothers as they breathed their last, honored their spilled blood with prayers and remembrances. When he dreamt of them, of their faces which had once smiled without blood marring their teeth, he welcomed their presence, as it reminded him of their lives.

    No, the worst dreams, the ones which left him breathless and shaking in his bed, were those in which he was hale and healthy again.

    Summary

    ...as Esca stepped out into the arena, the seats were completely filled. As he looked around at them, he caught the eyes of a Roman man about his own age in the Magistrates’ seating area. The man was handsome, he thought, in a very dark, Roman sort of way; his skin was tanned and olive, but his face had a certain faint drawnness to it that spoke to Esca of illness and pain. His eyes were bright though... and he watched Esca with a hint of worry or nervousness that struck Esca as unusual.

    AKA, the development of Esca's & Marcus's relationship as seen through Esca's eyes. BOOKVERSE

    et propter vitam vivendi perdere causas.
