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.

“Have you no decency?!” Charles snapped at the prince.
Briar laughed heartily and said, “I’m not even into the good stuff yet.”
