What makes you think he's a mage, Danni?
I like how you showed time passing with the teacup being full and then empty :) And I like how Lave is so cool about helping out and so blunt about "I'll never ask you to do anything ever again" being a lie XD
Life's no cake walk in Persephone, but Lave Faraday has it worse than most. In a city where the undead are part of the night life and supernatural's the norm; Lave is expected to help keep the peace in this impossible city; or do hard jail time for past crimes. But when you have mafia vampires, necromancer frat boys, and zombie booze drinkers prowling the streets, one can't help but feel like a glorified; paranormal janitor. And Laves problems don't exactly improve when she finds herself protecting a young boy from a sinister force; and making enemies in all the right places.
