Ulfric had emerged from the door leading down to the barracks and the cells, followed by Ralof and Messala. Even at this distance, Galmar could see his tight jaw and his deep-set scowl, and he knew that Ulfric had been yelling, or was going to yell, or both.

The Dragonborn saw him, too, and her gaze darkened. “No point in delaying the inevitable lecture,” she said under her breath. She stood, squared her shoulders, and started walking.
Ulfric all but ran to her. Catching her by the shoulders, he enfolded his wife in a fierce embrace, holding her close to his chest. After a long, stunned stillness, the Dragonborn slowly brought her arms up and wrapped them around him as well. Now that Ulfric was closer, Galmar could better see the new expression on his friend’s face: a profound relief.
