1 Work in Just Friends
After ten years as apprentice to a Peacesteward, the one thing Erastus is sure of is that he's ill-prepared to become a master. Unfortunately, he's about to discover just how ill-prepared he is.
When he and his master stray into forbidden territory, Erastus is thrust alone into a community that is on the brink of war. His only hope for bringing peace is to ally himself with a young boy . . . a boy who has stolen what Erastus values most.
"I tell you all this, Erastus, so that you will understand. I owe a debt to my master, and a debt like that cannot go unpaid."
Boilerplate warning for all my stories. All the stories in this series are stand-alones; you don't need to read the others to understand this one.
I've finished writing this story. I'll be serializing it weekly (with possible breaks if my Muse happens to pull me offline on a particular week).
