    Summary

    “Do the rings under my eyes make me look shady?”
    “No more than usual,” Musichetta said. “Worried about your image?”
    “About my customers.” Grantaire blew on his cup of coffee. “I mean, you'd get that, right? It's our business to be trustworthy.”
    “No, that's my business,” Musichetta corrected. “Your business is to seem trustworthy and never let people know that there's not a magically gifted bone in your body.”

    (In which Grantaire pretends to have magic, Enjolras pretends not to, Jehan struggles to work out the morals of working as an alley witch, and Musichetta just wants to tell fortunes from the back of her kiosk in peace.)
