It was raining the night they came. " She ran trembling fingers over the silver hilt of the knife at her belt. " Darken Rahl had wanted Jennsen dead because she had been born ungifted. Any ruler of that bloodline killed offspring such as she. Richard and Kahlan believed that a person's life was their own to live, and that birth did not qualify that right. Jennsen's haunted eyes turned up to Richard. " With one arm, Richard pulled Jennsen into a tender embrace. They all understood such terrible loss.
Women like her—Confessors—dared not dream of love. Because of Richard, she had dared and had gained it. Kahlan shuddered to think of the terrible times she had feared he was dead, or worse. There had been so many times she had ached to be with him, to simply feel his warm touch, or to even be granted the mercy of knowing he was safe. Jennsen glanced at Richard and Kahlan to see that neither took Cara's admonition as anything but fond heckling.

" For the time being, Kahlan kept her worries to herself as she circled an arm around the young woman's shoulders in an appreciative embrace and walked her back toward the wagon.
