The Tiger's Silent Roar
    by Holly Heisey

First published April 2016 in Clockwork Phoenix 5

Evin was on his way in from the gardens, taking his usual shortcut through the formal parlor, when he first saw the soul hunter. She stood in her violet aura near the hearth chairs, hair glinting an unnatural silver. Her gaze razored to him with a predator's instinct.

A throat cleared. His father. "Oh, Evin, you are here. This is Mira Tran. Ms. Tran, this is my son, Lord Evin Arduay."

Evin made his bow, and the hunter returned it.

His father continued. "Ms. Tran is a member of Lord Jerain's court--from the inner worlds, you know--and tells me she is a great admirer of the arts. She has expressed interest in seeing your work. She will be staying with us for the next hand of days, I am sure you will be accommodating?"

Evin eyed the hunter. Beyond the silver hair, could he see her second soul?

The hunter's gaze stayed steady on him. "I have seen your works, Lord Evin, and they are much talked about in the courts abroad. I am partial to The Waterfall in particular; I have spent many an evening watching the ripple of the glowworms across its branches. But of course that is a recording. My Lord Jerain desired me to come to you and report back if these works are as extraordinary in person as the holographic representations suggest."
