A priest opens the door, and ushers you inside. Sanctuary, you mumble wearily. Of course, my child, he answers. His voice is soft, kind, safe. The night blurs past you. A woman, a nun?, comes to help you. You're cleaned with shockingly cold water. Rough, homespun cloth settles around you. You're given a bed to sleep in, and suddenly, it's morning.

Breakfast is bread, cheese, an apple and some fresh spring water. You're ravenous. The fight last night has brought out your appetite. Who were you running from? the priest asks. The man with the sword, you answer. He was trying to kill me. The priest and the nun exchange glances. We saw no one. That doesn't surprise you. You know holy ground is your only haven. An idea tickles your mind.

I'd like to stay, you say, once the last crumbs of the meal have been eaten. You want no more of being what you are. You hate being Hunted. And if staying on holy ground keeps you safe, so be it. Of course, my child.
