"I think you'd enjoy traveling more than professoring, though," she says, "If you're leaving the student life behind."

"Only if you're coming with."

She takes Ellie's hand, laughing a little.

"Your castle, my lady," she says, sweeping a bow.

Permalink

She giggles. "That's why dragons are the best."

Permalink

"Which was totally my plan from the beginning."
