Falling Feathers Chapter 16Falling FeathersChapter Sixteen: The New PlayerHWFA woman around the age of twenty-one with white blonde hair walked slowly through the streets of Venice with the light continuously bleaching her hair and shimmering in her deep purple blue eyes. She was wearing a white dress that came to her knees and carrying a shopping bag, but as peaceful as she appeared a tattoo of a crescent and a diamond were still visible under a thin layer of makeup.

Sterling had run into them after following Hace and they were now looking for him, Karsh and Helena said that they had a plan as to how to find him and Crovix, but they wouldn't tell Sterling where they were headed.
