Catalina sat in her bed, her golden brown eyes staring wildly at the raven. He could almost taste her fear. Her sweet sweet fear. She had not noticed him yet and he found himself watching her intensely. Her dark locks fell richly over her slender shoulders. Her supple bosom rose and sank in with her quickened breathing, glistening slightly from a fever. She truly was a beautiful woman. Yet, she was so much more. Elegant, calculating, clever. A lot like him. They also carried the same darkness within. She may not have been capable of killing their father, but innocent she was not, no matter what pretty face she showed the world.
