Mabarina didn’t understand when Barty gave her the ring.
“It’s shiny,” she remarked and tried to hand it back to him. He curled her hand around the silver band.
“You gave me a name. I give you the ring,” he explained.
Mab looked at the ring with renewed interest. She held it up and looked through it.
“For our union?”
Barty beamed up at her and she just had to reach down, grab his horn and kiss him.
“The inside summons a dagger,” he gasped when she released him. “But only for you.”
“My only love, you know me so well.”
