Excerpt from One Night in Bethlehem: A Christmas Story

Laric sat upon a gray rock at the roadside, gazing vacantly upon the golden splendour of Jerusalem, and meditated on his melancholy lot, and its growing hopelessness. The last rays of the setting sun made the Temple walls a hill of ?ame, and a biting wind had begun to blow. It would be a hard night for poor travellers like himself, and he was very weary. His feet were bound in rags, his cloak was thin, and the wind set his old wounds aching. Throngs of people passed him, eyeing him askance, as they well might, for he looked like a robber. He received their glances of fear and contempt with equal unconcern, for he had long ago ceased to expect from the world anything but hardness. At that moment his whole mind was concerned with the important question whether or not he should enter the great city. His hand, fumbling secretly in his rags, counted the few copper coins which were all his wealth, and he reluctantly admitted that the city was not for him. This admission set him thinking of the past.
