Fear surged through Harrison as the crash of the dungeon door sounded. Suddenly, he was back in darkness and could no longer see Bridget's sad eyes and pretty features.
Only second laters, a new light was lit, another latern. The boy who had escorted him back to the castle was here. But why? When the tin plate was pushed through the bars, Harrison was surprised but quickly stood and reached out. He was hungry and thirsty, he would take anything he could. Looking up at the young boy's face and into his deep, sad eyes Harrison realised he was bullied into being here. He wanted to be here no more than Harrison did.
"Thank you, son." Harrison said politely. "I will remember you for this." The boy bowed at the words and weakly smiled.
