    Summary

    The hands on his shoulders gave a little squeeze. “I am — the disciples will call me Hanguang-jun,” the man said, and then, after a brief hesitation, he added, “I ... named you.”

    “You did?”

    “Mn.”

    “Why?”

    The corner of Hanguang-jun’s tightened and he said, “We are family. That is why.”

    Family was a tricky thing, in the Cloud Recesses. All of them were family, and few of them were. Sizhui did not know if he had any, by blood. He had come when he was too little. Nobody had offered him up the information, and it felt forbidden to ask. But Hanguang-jun said we are family very firmly, so Sizhui asked carefully, “Gege?”

    “Father,” said Hanguang-jun, and startled Sizhui into stillness when he reached up and straightened the ribbon across Sizhui’s forehead.

    Summary

    If it was some kind of weird religious thing, it was for a god Geralt had never heard of. Probably it was just a weird Jaskier thing. Crows, of all creatures! Corpse eaters. Grain stealers. No one liked crows. But Jaskier was voluntarily traveling with a Witcher; maybe he just had poor taste.
