Shadows Return excerpt

shellygurumi:

Friend, partner in their precarious secret business, and talimenios — there was no proper translation for all that encompassed, or the deep bond of heart and body he and Alec shared. Seregil had taught him guile and all the tricks of the nightrunner trade, but at heart Alec was still the honest woodsman he’d found in that northern cell, and for that Seregil would always be grateful. Loving Alec made him feel almost clean again, himself.

The wizard colored a little. “Princess Klia has asked me to marry her.”
“What did you say?” cried Illia, jumping around in excitement.
“Why, I said yes.”
Kari and Micum looked thunderstruck by this news, but Seregil burst out laughing, and Alec, too.
“Of course, the Orëska wizards are debating it, and the royal council,” Thero added, trying to regain some of his dignity. “No Orëska wizard has ever married, according to the archivist.”
“And no Queen has ever married one, of course.”, said Klia.
