Jade Calloway made her way into the Great Hall of Berwyck Castle still feeling overwhelmed by the miracle of her slipping through time. She saw Thomas standing near the massive fireplace with a group of his fellow knights. He raised a tankard of mead to his lips but paused when he saw her across the room. A smile reached his eyes and Jade blushed while she remembered their first kiss.
With a sudden urge to be near Thomas, Jade began to make her way through the hall before a serf bumped into her. Wine from the pitcher the young woman held sloshed onto Jade gown. A gasp of surprise rushed passed her lips when her garment became soaked to her skin.
“Ye best leave and return from whence ye came,” the girl said through clenched teeth.
Jade’s brow rose while she tried to remember the woman’s name. “Fira, isn’t it?”
“No apology for ruining my gown?” Jade asked wondering why Fira was looking like she would have no problem thrusting a dagger into Jade’s back.
“He belongs to me,” Fira growled out.
Jade’s gaze went to Thomas who began to make his way towards her. “Who? Sir Thomas?”
“Nay… not him. Sir Gaillard. Stay away from him because he is mine.” Her eyes darted about the hall before she let out a curse and fled.
“Gaillard? You can have him,” Jade murmured watching Fira’s departure before she felt Thomas’s hand reach around her waist.
“Is she troubling you?” he whispered in her ear causing Jade to shiver with his nearness.
“No but that one is trouble, mark my words.”
“She is but a woman,” Thomas replied taking her arm.
“Said all men throughout time when they can’t see what is right before them,” Jade said with a laugh.
“Go change your gown and let us be about our day. Forget about Fira. These things have a way of working themselves out for the best,” Thomas said ushering Jade to her chamber.
And with his words, Jade forgot about the angry serf who was under some impression that Jade was after Gaillard. She had better things to do with her time here in twelfth century England than worry about a jealous woman.
