Written for Sammi Cox’s Weekend Writing Prompt #133.
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.”

Thanks for commenting! I agree it needs a little work; I came up with it in just a few minutes.
