First Lines Contest 2017: Red Horse: 1642

First Lines Contest 2017: Red Horse: 1642
It was a raw night and there was a stiff wind coming up off the sea, bringing a driving rain and a tavern full of sea-captains and merchants with their pockets full.
Margriete liked nights like this. The Blue Cat was full to bursting; there was a cheerful, rowdy, jaunty air to the tavern, and the air was full of the good smells of cooking and spilled ale and wet wool, with a hint of tobacco and spicy geneva. In the corner by the fire, the blond Englishman sat with his arm round his girl, running through his repertoire of bawdy drinking songs.
