The Watcher: PrologueIt was patience that had allowed me to get this close. The colt stared at me with a smug, knowing look in those haunting gray-green eyes. He wasn’t like the others of his kind that I’d worked with. For one thing he wasn’t captive. He wasn’t bred from our stock.
He was altogether prouder and more magnificent. More intelligent as well – there was no mistaking the cleverness behind those eyes.

how a breath couldn't cease to be breath
in the midst of prayer.
