The butler’s longevity grew more astonishing by the generation. When he transferred his servitude to the youngest Everleigh, stories of his wondrously long life stretched back as far as Colin’s fourth-great-grandfather.

Colin was only twelve and didn’t care for history. He wanted only to be the most powerful magician his family had ever seen.

“Will you help me, Tistrarath?” he asked, using the forbidden name.

Their blood mingled.

“As I live, I shall serve you, master.”

  1. Interesting tale … it felt almost, owner and slave or at the least servant and master. The Forbiden name threw me, as do all names that are hard to read or fail to roll of the tongue. But it could have legs this tale, a bigger piece maybe.
