Learning was quite easy. Vidvan enjoyed it. Which meant when his master wanted him to do more than simply carry out errands for the household and put him to work learning, Vidvan was ecstatic. Which unfortunately tended to make him a little more talkative than he should have been.
“You might be favoured by him, but don’t you start thinkin’ that means anyone here will be going easy on you.” The maid’s scolding would have meant more if Vidvan wasn’t already examining her. “What are you looking at?”
“I was trying to determine what you served master for lunch.” Vidvan pointed out the small stain on her apron, otherwise clean of anything but dust.
The maid scowled and swatted the back of his head. “That will only work for so long, little one. Keep your tongue in check. Eyes too.”
Vidvan wasn’t sure what that meant, but decided to get out of dodge before she could start to consider that he was running afoul of either of those things again.
