It was curious, and more than a little bit concerning that his companion hadn’t thought about any plants being potentially harmful. But rather than add to the embarrassment that she seemed to be feeling, Kilorn decided to keep the comment he had originally been intending, to himself. There was no need for him to speak it, anyway.
He returned his focus to the yarrow as Keziah strode up to linger beside him, and asked in a hushed, almost awed sort of tone if he knew about herbs. A modest shrug followed by a small nod was his initial response. ”Ah, just little bit. An old friend of mine tried to teach me, but I never really paid that much attention.”
That was back when life had been simpler, more pleasant. When he had actually had a reason to wake up every day, and been in love with every aspect of his life, along with a very special woman. But those days were gone now.
Blinking away the reverie, Kilorn focused his mind once again on the present, as well as the plant before him. He lowered his nose down to give it a good sniff. ”Yah, I’m pretty sure it’s yarrow.”
