The Family that stands together…

“What are we to do then?” Asks Sancho. "The bandit’s will surely return again and I doubt that they will be fooled a third time.”
Mendez finds himself forced to think for once. “Go tell Father, all our brothers and Uncle Mendoza. If they come back, they’ll find us waiting for them.”
Sancho and Tao run off, leaving Mendez alone with Zia for the first time since his return.
Eyes still down, she speaks. “I am truly sorry. I know I owe you everything, but I was lonely and Sancho showed me nothing but kindness.”
Mendez takes Zia’s hand. “The first thing I did when you were given to me was to free you. I can hardly complain about you making your own choices.”
