“YOU WENT WHERE?” Sergi spluttered. Chester sat across the table from him, calmly sipping a brandy.
“To the queens palace, yes. It was a very regrettable encounter, I have to say. I had to kill a general I quite liked, well actually it was Puck who killed him, but I was the one who orchestrated it.”
“Excuse you, I was the one who shot him in the face! You’re just taking all the credit because he hurt your fragile ego,” Puck snapped. She was not drinking anything, instead she kept frantically looking around the bar, glaring at the passerby.
“Yes, yes, whatever,” Chester sighed. “Anyways, we payed the Queen a visit. She has Atticus.”
Sergi stared at Chester in disbelief. “Well that’s just ******* wonderful!” He said, throwing his hands up in the air. He slammed them down on the table, and let out a frustrated groan. “We needed to lie low!

I should just go back to the Murmuring Mountains and live as a hermit or something. Who cares how ******* corrupt this kingdom is? Who cares that they killed my parents or that they ***** over everyone who lives here? Not me! I’ll just go back to making flowers and tricking people into falling in love with me…” Sergi groaned and slumped in his seat.
“Thanks a lot, guys,” he spat.
