Authors Notes/Disclaimer: I own nothing.
Sooraya listened to Nezhno chanting under his breath; she didn’t know the words, but she knew a prayer when she heard one. She froze, knowing that this was something private and she had no business intruding, but she also knew that if she moved she would likely attract his attention anyway. So she waited where she was, listening to the oddly musical chant, an invocation to his pagan gods.
Finally, Nezhno fell silent, rising to his feet in a single graceful motion and moving on to whatever it was he was going to do for the rest of the day. Sooraya waited a bit longer before following his example.
