I love waking up to your fics, thanks so much :) :) if you’re interested, I would love to see your response to: Did you get my letter?
Evgeni lives a small but lucky life.
He’s lucky his mother escaped persecution and took refuge in the Crosby Kingdom when Evgeni was just a baby.
He’s lucky for the king and queen’s kindness to take the both of them in and give his mother a job as a maid to earn money.
Evgeni grew up always have enough food and warm clothes to get through the harsh winters.
When his mother died when he was seven he’s lucky the king and queen didn’t turn their backs on him and send him out into the cold.
He’s heard stories of rulers who want nothing to do with those who have nothing to offer.
Evgeni suspects it has something to do with them having a son only a year younger than him.
