… That’s the fun thing about doing a story set in olden times. Poisoners! You just don’t get too many poisoners nowadays!

This will be the last page for a few weeks. I’m hoping two weeks, but it may be a little longer — I’ve been pushing hard on this since I got back from vacation, and I started back to work a few weeks ago, so I’m getting burned out and need some time to catch my breath. This chapter only has a couple more pages left to go, and I would have liked to finish them out, but, well … I’m sorry this comes at an awkward time. 🙁 I just need a little break. Thanks — as always — for your patience.
