    Summary

    Eshevis had noticed him before, out of the corner of his eye, in moments of boredom. Slight, young, good-looking, graceful – yes, yes. Exactly the sort of thing to catch his eye. But what caught his attention was the nagging feeling of recognition.

    And now he had him standing before him, oh-so pretty, ears lowered far beyond propriety and hands trembling with fear?

    'Come closer,' Eshevis said. 'Where do we know thee from?'

    Summary

    Do you know what we might find there? In Eshoravee? Thara asks slowly, and Mer Aisava looks away.
    We do, he answers. We were very lucky once, to escape from that place.
    He swallows, looks up again and holds Thara's gaze. And this is why we will go with you.

    Summary

    How could a full-grown man, one who was sanctified unto Ulis and that only by the unmerited generosity of the Archprelate, even contemplate such an innocent, honorable youth as a tool for his debased, unholy desires?

    Judging by the steeliness of his cock, the answer seemed to be: quite easily.

    Summary

    He is short and scrawny and frog-voiced and often disagreeable, but he learned not to remind Evru of this when Evru called him beautiful; and if it transpires that he is making yet another great mistake, at least he will not compound it with petty ones. So instead he covers Teru’s hand with his own and turns his head to press a kiss into the palm.

    Summary

    When Beshelar asked Cala to take a whip to him for inadequacies in his service as First Nohecharis (for who else could he trust with the task when all other official outlets had been closed to him?), he had expected the punishment to hurt. What he had not expected was his body to react the way it did to the stroke of the lash and the person wielding it...

    Summary

    Later, he would remember only four things, in which his mind swam drunkenly for hours after he had left the Untheileneise’meire: the dizzying lightness of a burden lifted from his soul; the imagined feel of those lean, strong hands upon his body; the heat that lingered on his forehead after firm lips brushed against it in the kiss of absolution; and that the Archprelate had spoken of his honor.
