Lightning flashes. For a moment, the nighttime world beyond this dormitory window is as bright as if it were noon. The green hedge that hems in the yard appears, and beyond it, the gray palace wall. Then just as quickly everything’s black again, and I count under my breath.
One…Two…Three…Four…Five…Thunder rolls across the roof.
Five. The storm is almost here.
Another flash, but this time, there’s something else out there. Between the hedge and wall. A boy. I forget to count.

Still on the Vagabond spree! This show is so insanely good. We’ve gotten a little silly with the shootout scenes, but it doesn’t take away from the awesomeness of the rest of the show!
