“Lady Mischa to see you, my queen,” Aria’s lady’s maid said from the doorway. Aria glanced up from a thick volume on political theory, surprised. Afternoon sunlight poured through the windows and her balcony; Valtteri had taken his paramour for a ride through the city not thirty minutes prior. Mischa stepped into the room with … Continue reading The Southern Arm, Part 5

One of Valtteri’s courtships and a few of her friends gathered conspiratorially around a frozen fountain at the center of the courtyard. “I like him,” Aria … Continue reading The Southern Arm, Part 3
“That little prick,” Lukas snarled as soon as Aria finished relaying the events of the evening. “He's barely more than a whelp and he's already knocking women around?

“He’s courting,” Liam said, sidling up behind Aria with a drink in his hand. They stared in opposite directions, their lips barely moving as they spoke; around them, nobles alternated between watching Aria with curiosity and dancing, drinking, or gathering in groups to talk. Most of Valtteri’s court had so far shied from speaking with … Continue reading The Southern Arm, Part 2
