The Following quotation is from Drums of Autumn by Diana Gabaldon. All Rights Reserved. Copyright 1997. Chapter 2. In Which We Meet A Ghost.

"How long have you been in the wagon?" Duncan demanded.

"Since midafternoon." The man rose awkwardly onto his knees, swaying a bit from the effects of the blow. He touched his head again and winced. "Oh, Jaysus! I crawled in there just after the Frenchie loaded up poor old Gavin."

"Where were you before that?" Ian asked.

"Hidin' under the gallows cart. It was the only place I thought they wouldn't be looking." He rose laboriously to his feet, closed his eyes to get his balance, then opened them. They were a pale green in the torchlight, the color of shallow seas. I saw them flick from face to face, then settle on Jamie. The man bowed, careful of his head.

[> Interesting that she describes his eyes like shallow seas. He may have had a bad experience when the men tried to kill him, but I think he was bad to the core even before then. -- LisaW, 08:52:59 03/29/15 Sun

[> I think Stephen is a perfecrt portrait of a sociopath. He's willing to sell the mother of his child into sexual slavery. After she and her family saved his life not once, but twice -- swarl, 12:19:34 03/29/15 Sun
