Adelaide’s very first best friend was a young boy named Braon. His father was the blacksmith in the small village they were living in at the time, a tiny little hamlet sort of a place in the foothills of the Frostbacks.
They were the only two children who weren’t from farmer/rancher families, so they had enough free time to wander off and get into trouble after the Sister let them out of school, when all the other kids had to go home and do chores.
So they had a tendency to go exploring well past the edges of town, wandering out past the pastures even, and clambering over rocks and trees and occasionally almost falling off cliffs.
Until Braon did fall out of a particularly tall and gnarly tree, and hurt something quite badly, and everyone was grey and worried and quiet and people kept telling each other to pray, and she didn’t understand, because when she’d broken her leg Papa had helped her get better so much faster, and why wouldn’t he help Braon and why didn’t anyone else know how to help him, and he was miserable, and no one would let her visit for more than half a ‘mark and they were always telling her to be quiet and it wasn’t fair.
And her parents shushed her right as she was making her point, (aka having a highly audible temper tantrum about all of this on the blacksmith’s courtyard, so everyone heard her), and dragged her off home, and then they were packing, and she was crying, and they were on the road later that night, so no one would have time to add up all the various things she had said with any possibly odd comments Malcolm and/or Leandra had said about their past, or not said about their past, and started to audibly wonder oh wait, what could he be hiding?
She didn’t make any close friends for a long time after that.
