    Summary

    Lucien laughs again, and then bends, his fingers replacing his sword at Caleb's throat, "You make pretty sounds when you're hurt," he tells Caleb, like a compliment, like Caleb should be happy, "I will admit, I'll miss your little kitty-cats."

    And he wraps one firm, strong hand around Caleb's throat, and hefts him into the air, his grip so tight that Caleb can't even scream anymore. He's bruising. "They'll miss them more, though," Lucien whispers in his ear, and then he opens his mouth, and Caleb can see something black and brackish, like a gas, like a poison, like cursed blood, and then Lucien is pulling Caleb towards him like a ragdoll and then Caleb can feel nothing but pain, a maelstrom of pain, and blood-hot fingers on his jaw.

When the rest of the Mighty Nein manages to capture someone who might have information, Caleb decides it's time to take things into his own hands and convinces Beau to let him.

    Summary

    “I… I actually have a favor to ask.”

    The reaction at the table was inevitable and it stung. Smiles grew wary and both Beauregard and Veth crossed their arms immediately, Veth sizing him up with a critical look.

    “What kind of favor?”
    Essek felt the blood shoot into his cheeks- by the luxon, this had been a terrible idea. But it was too late now.

    “I… my Den’s annual meeting is coming up, and I need a plus one, to put it simply.”
    The Nein still all stared at him, brows furrowed.

    “Is it a political meeting?”, Caleb asked.

    “It’s more of a family get-together, to be honest.”, Essek confessed, feeling very sheepish.

    “But why do you need someone to go with you?”, Jester asked, scrunching up her nose.

    Well, there it was. Essek fidgeted with his sleeve before he replied, as dignified as possible, “Frankly, because I am tired of my family’s burning questions about why I never bring any company.”
    The resulting shriek Jester let out made him jump- and not only him it seemed.

    “You need someone to pretend to be your daaaaaaaate?”

    Summary

    Essek has a moment to consider that gravity-based trust exercises have never worked for him, and then the spell hits. He leans back into it, falls, falls.
