For the entirety of his life, Joren had known this moment would come: the Ordeal. The final test before knighthood.

You either bend or you break, knights had told him when he asked. The Chamber will cut you open and make bare your weaknesses. No one ever said more.

He was sure in himself and he walked into the Chamber with his head held high. He would pass this test as he had passed all others and in the morning he would be a knight.

You either bend or you break, young Stone Mountain, a cold voice purred.

Joren broke.
