    Summary

    It started during Arthur’s first year with the gang. He’d seen Dutch covet before: a pocket watch, a wool coat. A pair of ladies giggling to one another under the same parasol. But that word, covet—it was Hosea who’d first taught him what it means. Pocketed away together on some far corner of camp, they mucked through a reading lesson with King James and the very last candle.

    “‘For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through... with many sorrows…’”

    “What’s wrong, Arthur?”

    “What’s ‘coveted’ mean?”

    “Oh, ahh… Greed. Coveting means wanting something that isn’t already yours.”

    “‘Covet’ means ‘greed?’”

    “Well, yes. I’d say… to covet is to want something a little too badly.”

    Summary

    Finally Dutch looked at him. "I'm not the law, Arthur. I won't give chase until I grow fatigued and then wait for somebody else to bring you to me. I will hunt you off the highest cliff and into the deepest canyon if I must. And if you doubt my stamina or my will, well then you have made a very poor judgement of my character."

    Yet again, words of devotion delivered with threat. Arthur's gut tugged in a way that had nothing to do with his stomach. "Yeah, well, poor judgement is in my character."

    Summary

    Rhaegar wins the war and deposes the Mad King. Jaime Lannister expects this to mean his service in the Kingsguard will grow vastly more pleasant. Instead, his sworn brothers are too wrapped up in their own problems to spare him any thought at all. Unwilling to let on how much this upsets him, Jaime makes a game of showing how completely he doesn't care.

    Then he finds himself reliving the same day, over and over. He soon realizes it's the perfect chance to act out in every way he hasn't let himself since the rebellion, free of consequence. But the people around him rarely react as Jaime expects, and his resolve not to care soon begins to waver.
