Thorn: First off, a warm welcome back to guard duty for Sir Birch Persil.
Juniper: Went with Annie’s name in the end, eh?
Birch: Yeah . . . I have a ton of siblings, and she’s an only child. It felt right.
Peach: Which means it’s time for the final re-retirement of Sir Peach.
Rowan: Ah, I bet we’ll need you again before you know it.
Thorn: Hopefully that won’t happen too soon. And since we’re all together . . . Except Marula, and, well, she’s Marula. Even though the anniversary is next week . . . Let’s take a moment for the remembrance now.
