Author Note: Happy Valentine's day. I want to dedicate this to E, but she doesn't deserve it.

Disclaimer: None.


She sleeps in one bed after another, making her way through royalty and peasantry and every caste in between. She's a hedonist at heart, seeking her own selfish pleasure as it suits her and finding happiness in people. Or so she tells herself that. But really, she can't stand the implications of the monarch's cold smile and Mai's damning silence.
