The witch ceased waving him away. “You have the gift, but practicing magic is forbidden to nobles. You know this!”

“Then I want to become a heretic!”

  1. Ooh, interesting! A defiant prince is a game changer, especially with how it can impact fellow nobles. Added with magic, it’s intriguing to me. :D Nicely written.

    1. Thank you, Lucy. The prince is a reoccurring character of mine that becomes known as the “Warlock King”: A tragic dark lord of sorts, but more of a trickster that’s just more maligned for going what most other rulers do anyway.
