The Scottish Prisoner Podcast Series
Chapters 27 and 28
In this episode, “Hungry Like a Wolf,” Jamie and John travel toward Glastuig, staying to the Irish countryside. John’s valet, Tom Byrd has been left to recuperate from his gunshot wound under the watchful eyes of the monks at the monastery. And after speaking to Abbot Michael about the Druid King’s Cup, Tobias Quinn goes his own way with the conspiracy in mind.
While traversing the countryside, John is overtaken by the sounds. He is impacted to his core by the song of the amphibians. He realizes the pagan’s have it right, Springtime is a chorus of breeding. Noisy sexuality floods the dark wood. He’s so distracted the wolf like need growing within, he takes a tumble, leaving Jamie to break his fall and right him. A raw hunger is all around. I think John needs a boyfriend ASAP.
The wood has a sense and feeling of The Faerie Queen herself showing up on her horse. Jamie tells the tale of experiencing “Them” one night when he was the Dunbonnet. It’s a Wild Hunt type tale. A moonless night, “they” showed up when he had killed a deer and hadn’t said the gralloch’s prayer right away. He was terrified and spent the rest of the night in a freezing burn for safety. John was enraptured by the telling. Then they walked in silence.
Finally, they reached Glastuig after the many hours of walking. A light was on, but shouldn’t have been. Edward Twelvetrees was in the library throwing papers in the fire. John stormed in with Jamie behind. A row took place between John and Edward. Jamie keeping cool, salvaged what papers he could and found a most important document.
We still don’t know who the killer is, what the motive was, and what will happen the those named in the Wild Hunt.
