“I know what I want.”
She doesn’t turn at Jack’s muttered defence; she’s watching the boy now, reading the portents writ upon his skin. Her hand snakes out, snatching the flask from Jack’s grasp, pouring rum into her palm. She spits and mixes with her finger, looks on with a seer’s eyes. “So you do. But do you claim it?”
He bats her hand aside. “Don’t buy you as a teller of fortunes, love, and it ain’t leaves yer readin’ there.”
“But I read you all de same. Do you claim her?”
“I never would.”
She wishes she believed him.
