He could hear the rushing of the water, and he let his legs propel his body toward the sound of the brook. His footfalls, once silent and deliberate, were becoming heavier and erratic as his thirst threatened to overtake him after days of wandering through the vast forest. It was just ahead now, he could see where the trees opened down into the creekbed. And just before he parted the brush...

The Huntsman saw the slight girl down on the other side of the stream before she saw him, but only by a fraction of a second. They both froze, eyes locked, she with her hands in the water and he with his hand already on the hilt of his dagger. She could have been any girl at any stream but her coloring betrayed her instantly: hair black as coal, skin white as snow, lips red as the blood now pumping wildly through the heart he was to bring back for the Queen. Even weakened, he knew his aim was true enough to bring her down before she could scramble up the bank, but something stayed his hand.

He lifted his hand off the hilt and as he slowly raised his arms in a gesture of peace, he knew he would return to the Queen not with a heart, but a sword.
