A Clash of Kings Chapter 19

By George R.R. Martin

Chapter 19

Sansa II

  • Sansa receives a letter telling her to come to the godswood tonight if she wants to go home. She can hardly believe her luck.
  • When she gets there, she finds the letter was sent by Ser Dontos—and he's already drunk, but contends it was only enough for his courage, no more.
  • He explains he can't send her home tonight but he is making arrangements. He swears his life, which she saved, to her.
  • They agree to only meet in the godswood so as not to arouse suspicion.
  • On the way back to her room, Sansa bumps into a very drunk the Hound, who says one day he'll get a song out of her, the caged little bird.
