you're incorrigible." he said.
"More than you know.Shall we go?"
"I think I may grow to hate you before this is over."
"But you don't already, and that's got to be some sort of record."
"It would help if you used words like 'please' and 'thank you'."
"then I'll 'thank you' to 'please' stay out of my business."
"You just need more discipline and a great deal of practice."
"the practice I can do, but nobody's ever been much good at disciplining me."
"May your talent for spontaneous tantrums earn you great glory and honer."
"I'll do whatever it takes to keep my head from rolling.And I'll try not to do anything that will cause them to detach yours."
"The pirates have a code about women and children, they don't touch them, not if there innocents.."
"Maybe the code will protect me," I said."Do I still count as a child?"
Eric tilted his head."You don't count as an innocent."
you've got a rat behind you."I muttered to Eric.
Fink shook his head."No, my pet's in her cage."
"I wasn't talking about your pet."
..knife at my throat."you don't want to do this."
His lip curled."yes I do."
"Fair enough.but it'd be a mistake."
"You're family now.."
"I have no family."And if I did they wouldn't be thieves.
"...I'm supposed to watch you."
"I thought I was family."
Fink shrugged."Eric just wants to make sure you're not the kind of family that runs when we're not looking."
"Forgive me, but the king's order is the most reckless thing he's ever said, which we both know is quite an accomplishment."
"..The question will be what does the king want for dinner. The answer is that you know what the king wants and it has nothing to do with dinner."
Tobias smiled, despite himself."What does the king want,then?"
"He wants you to hush and pay attention.."
"Oh,I see you don't want me around."
"You think someone like me is gonna have more than one name?"
Eric smiled."I'm surprised anyone even bothered to give you a name at all."
My expression mirrored his."They didn't.I gave myself this name."
"I took that for Sage, not Jaron."
"..I demand an answer."
"Or else what?" I grinned and folded my arms."I can beat you in a sword fight, and we all know what'll happen if you lock me in my room."
"Nothing so complicated as that."Mott also folded his arms."I'll simply decide not to like you anymore."
My smile widened. "That's a serious threat."
"It gets worse. I'll call you only by your title and quietly roll my eyes when you give me orders, and i won't make it fun for you to insult me ever again."
"Well, we can't have that."
"Jaron, do you support this plan?"
I rapped my fingers on the armrest."No."
which part do you object to?"Gregor asked.
"The part where you began speaking."
"I thought a little sleep would change your mind."
"I had the same concern, so I kept myself awake."
"We have to talk."
"Go ahead,"I said, slouching in my seat. "But do it quietly so I can sleep."
"..I had hoped that becoming royal would cure your foul manners."
"That's interesting. My father hoped that stripping me of royalty would do the same thing."
"....should be beheaded.So, which of you is that?"......suddenly became fascinated with the folds of their clothes.either that or they were avoiding looking at me.
