Chapter Three Adijan woke to sunlight and the smell of coffee. Her face hurt. Her body felt pummeled all over. The last thing she remembered was Hadim’s servants dragging her down the stairs. She lay on a divan set at the bottom of Takush’s bed. She hadn’t slept in this room since she’d been eight years old. Soft voices – her aunt and Fakir al-Wahali – carried through the open door.
