#SixSunday – Circle of the Butterfly #10

I’ve been giving you some of Briar’s very lowest moments, so today, I thought I’d give you a brighter one. This conversation is told in Charles Enwert’s POV. He’s one of the knights assigned to escort Briar on the Ruby String mission, and it takes place shortly before before the prince finds Jiadexin behind the wardrobe. Briar is bored and is trying to goad the knights into gossip. Charles would prefer they not talk about the king and queen, which only encourages the young prince. Briar has the first line below.

“It is rumored that his Excellency, the king, has kept women…”

“…please, don’t…”

“…and mom couldn’t care less, because he isn’t bugging h—”

“Have you no decency?!” Charles snapped at the prince.

Briar laughed heartily and said, “I’m not even into the good stuff yet.”

  1. I want to hear the good stuff, too!

    You know, going back and seeing how relatively carefree he was is a bit poignant, knowing how things will change . . .

  2. Prince or no prince, it sounds like he might get into more trouble than he wants if he pushes much more. Good six, Wendy. :)

  3. I missed this last week. Briar is such a perfect name for him! :D I’m excited to see how this character turns from child to man.
