Beltramino

Here’s the opening lines from “River Gods” included in the Juicy Bits Anthology from Dreamspinner Press:

The first morning the garden grew a man, the cats led Beltramino to him, two gray ones who stared into the thick rosemary hedge at a third curled against the man’s back for warmth. Beltramino thought the man was dead—the dying from the night’s battles sometimes crawled in their last moments to this sheltered place to die. A little snore told him the stranger still lived. Beltramino divided his morning meal, wrapped that portion in a bit of cloth, and put it within easy reach for the sleeping stranger when he awoke. Bel left him under guard of the cats for the workshop and another day of chipping at stone to free the spirits within.
