For a moment the whole hunt fell silent. Jon-Joras, feeling so he thought like a virgin at her first assignation, heard only the sound of his own troubled breath felt sweat starting on face and body. The dragon seemed to crouch in his place on the far side of the clearing, his crest quivering. A moment passed. ...
