    Summary

    “Fuck off,” Vex says, glaring out the window at the world in general, rain and her brother combined. “I don’t want us to go broke.”

    “We have a Van Gogh and a Renoir in the storage room,” Vax says dryly. “I don’t think that’s likely, no matter how many people you hire to help run the coffee shop.”

    Summary

    Jester is stirring awake beside him, and she’s in his arms. She’s in his arms, and it’s one of those rare times Bren Aldric Ermendrud isn’t in a rush, isn’t thinking about the next mission, the next meeting with Master Ikithon, the next tuning session with the syringes and needles and crystals. He doesn’t need to immediately go back to Rexxentrum, and he’s more healed now thanks to Jester than he has been in a while, and he’s blinking. He can just be, just exist, at least for this little while, and Jester is cold in his hands in that endearing way she tends to be. She’s leaning back into his bare chest that’s riddled with scars and marks and burns, and he can’t help but think, traitorously—

    “I could do this forever.”

    Summary

    "We were so happy to hear of your union," says Lady Olios, in that silky-smooth voice of hers. Beside Caleb, Beau makes a sound that sounds vaguely like she's choking. Caleb doesn't even look.

    "Ah," says Caleb, pleasantly, like an idiot. "What?"

    Summary

    “Do you remember what we agreed, when that archmage stole everything, and Mama and I became poor?” She runs a hand through her hair, and exhales through her teeth. Her hand that isn’t around her holy symbol is digging slightly into her knee, grounding her.

    … I do. He still sounds careful, but also a little proud.

    “No more hiding.” She bites the inside of her cheek. “No matter how… easy. No matter how… much I want it.”

    Summary

    She shakes her head. “All archmages are hideous.” She bugs out her eyes as she says hideous, and Bren… Bren has to twist his face a little, so he doesn’t allow a choked laugh to escape his lips. “But if you wanted me to paint you…” Her voice trails off a little, and her eyes almost rake over him—his patterned suit jacket adorned with intricate floral designs, his ornate black dress shirt and vest, his well-fitting black trousers, his combed red hair…. Her momentary scowl widens into a full-on shit-eating smile. “It would be an honour to capture your beauty.”
