    Summary

    The other gentleman sat next to him, and ordered his drink; a vodka cranberry.

    “Bold drink,” Enjolras said with a smile. “I’m a scotch man, myself.”

    “I don’t think I’m quite mature enough for scotch, yet.”

    “I hardly doubt maturity has anything to do with it,” Enjolras told him. “I believe the scotch matures the man. A man whose name happens to be…” he let his question trail off, hoping the other would pick up on it.

    “Grantaire, and you? Do I get to know your name, or is that top secret?”

    “I’d say it is top secret.”

    “Okay, my secret mystery man. Who are you meeting tonight?”

    “If I told you,” Enjolras began, smiling once more, “I would most definitely have to kill you.”

    Summary

    There were drinks, coin flowing and though the villagers were a bit leary of his horns he was doing just fine. Of course he had to open his mouth for a pretty girl.

    She had been perched on one of the stools sipping a drink, and Molly’s eyes easily traveled lower, appraising her, and she even winked at him. He’d saddled up to her and remembered her first question.

    “Have you ever traveled with knights, ser bard?”

    Summary

    In retrospect, he should have known better.

     

     Molly assumes it’s a misunderstanding; it wouldn’t be the first time his infernal heritage has caused him trouble, someone of small mind and smaller sensibilities taking exception to his presence and assuming he’s up to no good. Point being, he isn’t overly surprised when he’s approached by two Crownsguard asking that he please come with them.

     

    They’re polite, apologetic, and he’ll kick himself later at how easily they take him in, how completely he buys it. It takes him longer than it should to realize they’re not headed to the city’s stockade, to realize they’re going the wrong way. When he turns to one of them to ask where they’re going, that’s when everything goes to shit as the man at his back clocks him on the back of the head and the world goes dim and watery. Before he can react, the man hits him again and Molly crumples, everything going dark.

    Summary

    “C-Caleb…” She tried one more time, fighting back the tears.
     
    She crept slowly over until she was right in front of him. Blue eyes passed over her without a pause and no sign of warmth or recognition.

    “Caleb, got everything?” Molly called out.

    “Yes, I suppose so.” He murmured and with that turned his back towards her and climbed into the cart.

    The rest of the group is does not remember Nott or seem able to hear or see her.
