About this Book

Print Excerpt


"If you don't trust me, you can test me. Come on, test me now."

Atami agreed to this, for testing his pupil was his favorite chore. The monk asked a hundred questions and Luka not only answered them satisfactorily, he also pointed out that two questions were actually redundant and begged for two more to fulfill the day's quota.

"Outstanding, Your Holiness."

"Can I go now?"

"Absolutely not."

"Why not?" 

"No Holiness has had to beg before."

"No Holiness has been this hungry before."
