    Summary

    “Why do you wear that collar?” the witcher asks.

    Jaskier startles. He’s been fiddling with it, he realises, a nervous habit. He didn’t think the witcher had noticed, even though those golden eyes seem to spot most things.

    “It’s so people know what I am,” he says.

    “And what are you?” the witcher says. His tone has turned surprisingly gentle. Perhaps he can hear the misery in Jaskier’s voice.

    “Bound in service,” Jaskier explains. He tries on a smile. “It might not look like it, but I’m as much of a prisoner as you are.”

    Jaskier didn’t exactly plan to escape from his master alongside a terrifying witcher. But it might turn out to be one of his better decisions.

    Summary

    Jaskier cleared his throat and squared his shoulders. “Do you have a pair of shears somewhere in those bags?”

    “Yes.”

    “Are they sharp?”

    Geralt raised an eyebrow.

    “Right, right, scary witcher, loves sharp things. If you fetch it for me I’ll do my best to salvage…” he trailed off to wave his hand in the air around Geralt’s head, “...all this.”

    Summary

    It’s a tradition the three of them hold. Whenever one of them finds a book of the right kind, he brings it back to Kaer Morhen to share with the others. They keep the books on a shelf in the library that they inexpertly installed themselves.

    Eskel drags a chair up to form their little semicircle in front of the library fire. Lambert opens the first bottle of krupnikas.

    ‘Well?’ Lambert says. ‘Either of you find a good one this year?’

    ‘Feast your eyes, lads,’ says Eskel with relish, ‘on this.’

    He waves an octavo at them.

    ‘Picked it up in Redania,’ he says. ‘Meant to be very spicy.’

    He waggles his eyebrows, and Geralt grins.

    Jaskier is a romance novelist, and Geralt finds out.

    Summary

    “I learn stuff about you to enrich my songs, thanks very much.”

    Geralt starts. “Like what?”

    Jaskier strums a chord. “Plenty of things. You always ask the contractor if they want the head or not instead of just showing up with it, because you don’t want to shock people. You eat normal amounts of food when eating in public, instead of your usual awe-inducing giant amount. You sleep more when you’re hurt, but that’s the only way I’d ever know. You’re a bit weird about your potions and you count them a lot.” He glances up and grins. “Shall I continue?”

    A handful of contracts go sideways. Recovering is easier with Jaskier there.

    Summary

    “Hundred crowns and the boy.”

    Geralt opened his mouth to protest but was shocked into silence at a skirmish from the corner as a man was shoved forward, stumbling into the space between the witcher and the merchant. The new arrival stared at the floor, apparently too fearful to even look at a witcher, shoulders cringing and head low.

    “What use have I for a boy?”
     
    Given in payment, a slave is brought to Kaer Morhen to winter with the witchers, scared and silent. Even once he’s been freed it’s a long road to recovery.
