Report your word count for the day here!

Are any of your characters keeping secrets? What kind of trouble is this going to cause them later?

Optional Writing Report Question: Does your Antagonist appears to the Protagonist as a friend? Does your Protagonist see through it?

2122 words for the day. Total at 13k or so.

Doéna and Lorien are keeping it a secret that Doéna is not nobleborn. He isn't even from well-off parents. In fact, his family is so poor, Doéna wouldn't normally have gotten within arm's reach of Lorien if Lorien's parents hadn't been trying hard to find someone who could balance their son's dreamy impetuousness. If the fact Doéna is lowborn gets around Imperial Court at this point in the story, it could cause some Courtiers to shun them and Lorien to withdraw from them, which would ruin at the very least their usefulness and hopes for some happiness and could possibly get them sent back to Vénar, with Lorien's wife in tow, despite them having no standing there.

As for the antagonist, he's as conniving and devious as Doéna thinks. Karé comes from a long, long line of conninving and devious people.
