Bronwyn’s 18 years old. He wants to be seen as an adult, but as the baby of the family, his family still treats him like a child. Here’s a snippet from Blade of Truth, the short story that exposes Bronwyn’s back story.
Bronwyn’s older sisters, Rhiannon and Loran, sat at the table eating. They worked as apprentices at the nearby dress shop and often talked about opening their own shop one day.
“After today, you won’t have time to play with your silly sword.” Rhiannon winked at Loran.
“You’ll have to work like the rest of us,” said Loran.
“My sword is mighty, not silly.” He frowned. “And I already work. Don’t I, Mum?” Every day, he stocked shelves and ran orders for the family’s shop.
Maisie guided the bacon and eggs from the pan to his plate. “Of course. He is my best helper.”
His sisters giggled.
“Worker,” he corrected.
“That’s right, dear.” Maisie eyed her daughters. “He does more work around the shop than you two did. You were too busy ogling boys. You better hurry or you’ll be late. Ole Miss Purdy frowns on tardiness.”
