Cross Marian's guide to raising strange children.
The kid turned twelve, and Cross went ahead and made him an official apprentice. It felt a lot like resigning himself to his fate.
The kid, who was getting more uppity every day, asked if this made him the official slave, rather than the unofficial slave.
Cross shoved him off a balcony to check his reaction time. Pretty good, actually.
