Those were more than cloud shadows. They were running shadows: dark animals racing down across the cloud-swept plain. Dark wolves running. Wolves, flicking from sun to shade, huge wolves sweeping down toward them, now, through the woods. The mare reared as they leaped toward her, spun away, pulling the rope in a sharp burn through Tayba's hands; Ram jumped from the saddle as the pony veered under him.
Let her go! Tayba stood backed against a boulder, could not speak for the terror that held her.
Huge shaggy wolves pressed against her, tall as her waist, rank-smelling; and their yellow eyes looked at her with a knowing that shook her. She saw Ram put out his hand to the dark wolf leader, saw the wolf come to him, saw Ram thrust his hands deep into the wolf's thick coat in greeting, then lay his face against the animal's broad head as its tongue lolled in a fierce smile--the smile of a killer; saw the riders trying to approach, fighting their panicky horses. Ram plunged his face against the warmth of the great wolf, smelled his wild smell, and felt whole suddenly, as if a part of himself had returned.
Then he lifted his head to face EnDwyl and the Seer, pulling the big wolf close as he did so. He sensed their fear with pleasure, saw the Seer's hesitancy and how the dark wolf watched the riders with lips drawn back. Ram's own lips twitched into a smile. Ram clung to her back with effort, his fingers twisted in her mane to keep from falling, his blood spilling down across her shoulder. She lifted higher and the wind hammered at him; her wings tore light from the sun so it fractured around him, confusing him.
He was hardly aware of the land below, blurred into a tapestry of green by her speed, was unaware of the river Urobb just beneath them and of the sea ahead. The bay and islands lay sun-washed, the towering stone ruins, but he did not heed them or the newly tilled farms, the herds of fat cattle and horses, did not see the carts going along the newly made roads toward the ruins to trade, was conscious only of pain, of sickness, of the raw pain of the sword wound in his side. The bleeding increased. He loosed one hand from the mare's mane to explore the wound, then bent again, dizzy, hugging her neck to keep from falling.
Only her mane torn by wind to slash across his face jerked him from unconsciousness. He pressed his arm tight to his side to staunch the blood. The mare's wings spanned more than twenty feet, her dark eyes swept the sky and land constantly. Her golden coat caught the high, clear brilliance of the sun, her cars sharp forward and alert. She was no tame creature to come to a man's bidding, she had leaped from the sky of her own free will to lift Ram from the midst of battle, a dozen winged horses beside her sweeping down to lift the battered warriors from a fight that had turned to slaughter, so outnumbered were they; a battle they might have won had their Seer's powers not been crippled so the attack caught them unaware, the Herebian hordes surging through dense woods a hundred strong against their puny band.

The mare lifted higher now. Light filled her wings like a golden cloak surrounding Ram, light ever moving as she soared then angled down. The fields rolled beneath him sickeningly; he went dizzy again, and she warned him awake with cool equine concern; then she dropped suddenly and sharply to meet the cold sea wind, dove through the wind in swift flight supporting Ram with the strength of her will--then folded her wings in one liquid motion and stood poised and still on the rim of a stone balcony high up the sheer side of the temple of the gods.
Ram slipped down to the stone, his mind plunging toward blackness, and felt hands catch him. He saw a flash of gold as the mare leaped aloft, then went limp.

She, always so quick and careful, let him take it with quiet amusement. He held it close to the flame where he could make out the intricate carving of birds and leaves with which the handle was fashioned, the clean, sharp blade. Then he raised his eyes to her.
It was made with great skill. And with love. She looked away from him, felt gone of strength, wanting to weep for no reason. Made with love. Brotherly love, maybe. No more. She straightened her shoulders and stared at him defiantly, reached out for her sword. That is skill you see.

Only skill in the casting of the silver. Have you not learned that? I hope you know more about the use of the sword than you do about a man's mind.
