"You have done well, Garrett." He smiles, his beard is getting greyer by the day, but his eyes still hold a semblance of his younger self.
"Now is a true test of will. Fire is not like any other element. You cannot tame i

"Love, What is it?" I see his lip curl slightly before he turns to me.
"The nobles are testing my patience, Hawke. Deal with them now or I will." Alrighty then! I hold up my hands.

"Never fear, I've been working on my elderly nagging for m
