Eleven: The Diamond Raven
Esteronzerai was the biggest town Raizel had been in yet, and it was where the carriage’s route diverged from Raizel’s, whether or not she had been stopping to lasso a wizard. She bowed to the driver and, her grandfather’s words in her mind, tipped him, although she had not been responsible for the payment for this trip.
He bowed a little back to her, and did not seem offended by the amount. “Good luck on your journeys, child.”
She had, at home, outgrown “child” when she was old enough to watch the next-youngest children. It was strange to put it back on for this trip.
She smiled at the carriage driver anyway, because she thought he meant to be kind, and then turned her attention to Nadya. “Where do I find your Diamond Raven?”
