Sample text

I ride now, in your gentle honor. ” Oh, they can’t resist, believe me! Though truth be told, Paladin, I think Corin already favors you. You take up a lance in the tournament tomorrow and declare it’s for her, I guarantee you’ll have your future queen. I-I couldn’t…I don’t know anything about— How lucky you are, then, to have a former champion for a father and king! WHAT?! Tomorrow?! I can teach you the basics tonight, and we’ll practice ’til morning. After that, all you’ll need is two friends to act as squires, who’ll tend to your horse and your arms.

As long as he keeps bringin’ stuff, who cares? It’s lovely, Paladin, but I— It looks pretty on you. But it feels awful…I’m not used to things around my neck. Y-you won’t wear it? I’m sorry, Paladin… …It’s just not me. I’m sorry. I understand about the dress, because I can’t walk around the palace in rags. But this is just… She’s right. The rough-andtumble girl who rescued me in the ruins wouldn’t care for baubles and lace! What was I thinking? And what am I supposed to do with this now?!

What? Why?! He’s the Crown Prince! I’m guessin’ that is why. Probably a bit intimidatin’ for the other kids. I suppose. He said his father’s tryin’ to make a man out of him. You’d think he’d just buy friends. Why the sudden interest in jousting? Ugh. That never works. Go easy on the boy, Marcello… it’s his first time. Let him break a lance on your shield the first pass. Build his confidence. I’ll aim away from him if I can. But not so much that he notices. Good man. Naturally, sire. People of Florin!
