Katherine did ponder in silence for a long time. She was given the captain's arm guard and the reins of the princess's horse and the instruction to retreat. The answer, "Yes, Your Highness", could not have come any later.

White Destiny #4 (Rev 4)

Sometime after the council meeting, Leo found himself occupying the carpentry table at Steve’s. In the air was the sizzling of blue steel in white water, the crackles of red flame on dark charcoals, and the rumble of hammer hoisted above the chestnut hair on black anvil.
