Sansa tilted her head to the side as she stared at him and watched as Lady walked up to Theon and sniffed him, checking to see if he was trustworthy. “A hostess?” She had not thought of that. Maybe it would suit her like he said it would. “Would you believe I was scared to death when I did that? I just thought of what Mother would have done and then followed through. Someone had to lead so I took the challenge...”
Sansa could tell something was blossoming between them but didn’t want to speak about it. They had known each other since they were children. He was the best friend of her brother Robb, and they were raised like a brother and a sister. After what she went through, she found she couldn’t hate him. Even when Ramsey made him watch... She somehow found the courage to get him to believe in himself and save her and him. Maybe they needed each other in this way. Without warning she took his hand and they walked along the harbor. “I’m glad I found you. And I hope I’m not taking you away from your work.” She looked down not wanting to be a bother to him.
