Who is the third who walks always beside you?

Ezra’s eyes opened when the door creaked. All at once, his breath was coming in shallow pants as fear tore through him. A shadow fell over him. Soft footfalls approached him and he squeezed his eyes closed.

“Are you frightened, little fox?”

“Please stop,” Ezra rasped, tears welling in his eyes. He couldn’t take much more of this. His eyes flew open when Severin yanked him to his feet. He kicked his feet helplessly, much to Severin’s amusement.

Then a form filled the doorway and Ezra froze. “Who’s that?” he said, blinking.

“I’m not going to fall for that cheap trick, little fox,” Severin snapped, as he turned away. Then he froze.

Out of the darkness, a soft voice said, “Maybe you should have.”
