    Summary

    “Don’t see you at these much,” Taako says, leaning against the railing. The moon is high and silvers the beach spread out beneath Merle’s home. There are bonfires down there, and people laughing.
    “I could say the same for you,” Lucretia replies, trying not to look at him, putting her weight on the railing to take it off her aching back and staring off into the middle distance. She doesn’t want to see the revelry, not now, at least.
    He shrugs. That’s on purpose. Taako has spent most of the last year trying to avoid her. “So how you been?”
    Lucretia shrugs and makes a noncommittal noise. “I’m still kicking, I suppose.” She sighs and takes a drink of her magically chilled wine.

    Summary

    Taako snaps his fingers sharply and the glasses appear on the table between them. He refuses to look at them — or at Lucretia — as they appear.
    "I still fuckin' hate you, okay? Just because, just because we're sitting here and you're drinking my shitty moscato, that doesn't mean we're good, alright? cause we're not! we're not good!"
    “It’s not that bad.” Lucretia proves her point by taking a long drink of sweet wine.
    “It was four gold at Fantasy Costco,” Taako says. “And hey! fuck you! Stop trying to get me to talk with you! I’m onto your tricks, Madame Director.”
    “I’m in your pocket spa,” she retorts.
    “Yeah, well, it’s mine, and I was here first,” he says.

    Summary

    Your mother was a saint and your father was a criminal, your mother was a no-name vagabond and your father was a prince, your mother is a dead woman and your father is a dead man and there’s no point in speculation. Here’s the truth of things: your sister is a liar and a cheat and a firebrand and she’s the only good thing in your life, and you’re a liar and a cheat and a skulking thief, and you’re going to be rich if you have to turn the entire world to gold to make that happen.

    You can do it, see. You’ve been learning transmutation.
