Pearl and Quasit #78


While Baron Nicaise awaited the results of his relations with his wives, he happily ruled his castle and grounds, watching his boys grow into wise and strong men.

Here both Iyauliana and Chattsworth paid attention to illustrations, Quasit reading the text. The Mariri continued to float, sans sound or movement.

He jousted with Joaquín. He fenced with Faranjuez. Played ashtāpada with Alaksandu. He practiced cantrips and prestidigitation with Preslḛy.

Debated politics and strategem with Stẫr. Damon showed him architectural designs. And archery with Asunción.

But Pearl'd arrived too late. Her mother'd already died peacefully in her sleep the night before.

    All through this most excellent series I've been amazed by the scope and the style - but one thing I really love is the names, they are wonderful. Keep it going Richard :)
