Caleb Widowgast, a quiet wizard who works two jobs. Tired all the time and stressed for keeping the Bookstore opened. The Zemnian das Buch, Its hard, but he wouldn't have it any other way.
He loves his bookstore, its the one place where he calls home. Caleb takes this advantage to read through the stories of adventures and just a tad of cheesy romantic fantasy.
In the city of Zadash, it's normal to have a high crime rate in the the city, and MollyMauk Tealeaf is in the heart of it. During the day he walks around the streets with the most colorful colors that could be seen a mile away. A peacock, waiting to show his wings for everyone else to see.
At night, comes out a mysterious man whose considered a criminal master mind for the past 3 years by the police, who they seem to never catch him.
They call him "Lucien".
No one knows who he is, even though he always seems to be on the big screen. Whether you are part of the mafia or the law, you can never see him.
.... Unless you see him standing on your kitchen counter in the middle of the night.
The alleyway was dark, the rain drenching Caleb to the bone. His body shook, but he didn't care as all he could do was stare at the man before him. The purple tiefling looked at him with such fear that made his heart twist. This couldn't be... How was this possible?
"Well," Mollymauk snapped. "Are you going to finish me off?"
Slowly, Caleb advanced towards him. Reaching his hand out and touching his cheek with such gentle care, afraid that this was just all a dream. He gave out a small gasp when he felt his gloved fingers touching Molly's cheek.
Caleb could feel the tears forming in his eyes.
His husband, whom Caleb thought he had killed, was back from the grave.
