Strauss pulled his headband tight. The thick scar underneath throbbed, but that usually ended quickly. Hunched over his cot in his garrison quarters, the captain buckled his boots and collected his daggers. A day had passed since the falconry school brats and Manfred's gang had left the constable's watchful eye, and neither party had returned.
