The Mage Sister I see the annual birthday snit is in fine tradition this morning.
Nathan Shut up.
Arinda So is the annual birthday heat wave. I’m broiling in this thing. Why can’t I wear my own clothes, Catherine?
Catherine You’re the Crown Princess, that’s why. And Nathan can be as grumpy as he wants as long as he is pleasant to his subjects today.
Nathan Yeah, Rinda. You’re not the only one who has to wear a heavy, hot outfit today. I have to wear my damned crown!
Arinda So do I, and at least you don’t have some boned monstrosity crushing you’re ribs and squeezing the breath out of you!
Catherine That’s enough, you two! They will be out in the heat all day, too, to celebrate your birthday so you’d better be nice to them.
Nathan Oh, they make a pretty penny at my birthday festival. THAT’S why they’re there!
Catherine So the merchants make a good profit today, what do you care? Everyone else is here to enjoy themselves and celebrate you’re birthday. Now you’d better start being the happy birthday boy right now or I swear to Fiaryn I’ll make you miserable for the rest of the year, and you know I can do it, too!
Nathan You’re just mean, Catherine.
