Toma leaned against the doorframe of the house. A jar of beer hung from his hand. Tain sensed the random anger rushing around inside him. It would be as unpredictable as summer lightning. "Take care of the sheep, Steban. " He cleaned up his forge, then himself, then carried water till Rula called them to supper. Anger hung over the meal like a cloying fog rolling in off a noisome marsh. Tain was its focus. Rula wanted him to control Toma. Toma wanted his support. And Steban wanted a magical access to the heroic world his uncle had created from the bloodiest, most ineptly fought, and most pointless war of recent memory.
Their fear made the house stink. He said nothing. After meeting her eyes briefly, he handed Toma the beer and ignored her appeal. He returned to his forge, dissipated his energies pumping the bellows and hammering cherry iron. He didn't dare insinuate himself into their argument. It had to remain theirs alone. Yet he couldn't stop thinking, couldn't stop feeling. He hammered harder, driven by a taint of anger. His very presence had altered Toma. Rula had said as much. The man wouldn't have considered supporting this Kosku otherwise.
His dreams were dying, Tain. And I wouldn't give him anything to replace them. And I have to hate myself for that. But now he's coming alive. " "Don't hate anybody, Rula. It's contagious. " "I can't ever like the Zemstvi. But I love Toma. And with you here, like a rock, he's becoming more like the boy I married. He's started to find his courage again. And his hope. That gives me hope. " "Yes. You're there. You don't criticize, you don't argue, you don't judge, you don't fear. You know. . Oh, I don't know how to say what I want.
