Excerpt from Chapter 6: Discovery
“Rito. That one dresser drawer is locked,” Haizar said, attempting to force it open.
“Get out of the way.” Rito took his sword out and broke the lock with it. When he pulled it open, both men gawked at the sheen.
“Jars of gold?” they both said in unison.
“Rito, take one with you. The King must see this.”
“But it’s Vyvianna. No. We can’t show the King. She’s a nice girl. He’ll ruin her.”
“We must or you know he will have our heads. I want to remain a favored knight of his.”
Rito still refused to take a jar with him.
