Can anyone identify this story?
It's about a mercenary or some such who goes to visit his friend, a slaver, and ends up buying the abused and ragged girl who holds the door open for visitors.
They end up getting to an inn at one point and he sees the extent of her abuse via her scars. The story is more about her rescue and recovery than anything else.
I know I read it here a while ago and can't seem to find it again! Any help would be much appreciated~
