    Summary

    Everyone in the world knows for a fact that Laurent and Damen despise each other with a burning passion despite their countries supposedly being allies. Strangely, though, the two of them seem to have missed that whole 'hatred' memo. Nikandros really doesn't get paid enough to deal with this shit.

    Summary

    Laurent reaches for a notepad to write down the man's potion order, and glances around for a pen. He’d seen at least four lying on the counter before he’d opened this morning, but Nicaise’s Petunia chews through cheap ballpoints like catnip, and there’s nothing Laurent can do to stop her. He sighs in frustration, glancing up to apologize for the delay just in time to see the customer pull a pen from the empty space in front of him. He squints at it blearily, running a hand over the stubble on his jaw, before offering it to Laurent.
     
    Okay. Magic professor. Laurent can work with that.

     

    Or: Five times Laurent regrets owning a magical wares shop, and one time he really doesn't.

    Summary

    Tell him. He recalls his Skype conversation with Pauline from the previous night. It’s been three weeks, Timmy. Tell him.

    No.

    Why the hell not?

    Because it’s fucking embarrassing! I’m not gonna ask him to come over every time I can’t sleep. That’s ridiculous!

    Summary

    He’s a slim, too-pretty boy of twenty, and the men of this particular underworld talk about him as though he’s an open flame, a sparking engine near a pool of gasoline: volatile, and not to be handled. Kid’s got balls of sheer fucking steel, Damen’s contact said.

    Which must be true, because having just lost a race against Damen for pink slips, Laurent looks him straight in the eye and says, “Double or nothing?” in a voice like vodka poured straight from the freezer.
