    Summary

    Tonight, Dutch is leaning on the mantelpiece, smoking a pipe, and Hosea is in their single overstuffed armchair, nursing a cup of the boiled straw he calls tea. There's another man with them too. A stranger. Presumably the owner of the spotted mare. Tall and broad and impassive, in cross-stitched blue and tan. He has a black and gold feather braided into his hair, the match to the one in his horses bridle, and his skin holds all the warmth of the fire.

    Summary

    Arthur knows he's dying, can feel the unstoppable pull of it, feels the spirit appear behind him to take him along. And yet, he finds he does not want to die. There is so much that went wrong, so much he regrets and he wishes, with all his being, he could change it. Could at least ensure those that managed to get away really make it out alive.

    A second chance, he asks, begs, really. Just give me the chance to save them.

    The being behind him pauses and Arthur can't look away from the moment he's frozen in, staring at the dark mountainside, aching to see the sun rise just one more time.

    One chance, the spirit seems to whisper, voice satin soft. Make the most of it.
