Carter and Mariette spent the rest of the autumn celebration talking in the moonlit garden, connecting over the shared pressures of coming from such esteemed families.

Passersby might have been surprised to see the pale skin of a member of the Vanium family consorting with a Consalez witch. But the garden was thankfully empty.

“What are we going to tell our parents?” Mariette asked.

Carter was quiet for a moment, then confidently took her hand. “We’ll figure it out when we get there.” Mariette smiled and leaned her head against his shoulder.

Then the conversation returned to things more magical.
