Lightning flashes, illuminating a pale horse with two riders, charging towards him over a reinforced drawbridge. He leaps to the side, and as it passes him the riders are revealed as a grim-faced woman and a girl his own size who is furious and terrified in equal measure, clutching something precious in her hand. She sees him even as he sees her, and the idea strikes her - she flings her cargo over the side of the bridge, and it sinks into the rushing water, and the horse is vanishing over the hills carrying her with it.

Farro wakes up with a face burning in his mind's eye.
