Thorn (thinking): He’s out cold. Has he been sleeping lately?

Is he closer to the mine disaster than he wants to say? Or maybe there’s something else . . .

Maybe he’s working too hard. Working off a debt . . . I wonder what it was. I wonder how much he has left to pay. How much longer he’ll be at this. I wonder . . .

. . . if his skin is as soft as it looks . . .

. . . I wonder what the frell I’m doing.

Shoulder imp: No, touch him! Look at how pretty he is!

Shoulder faerie: Knock it off! Let the poor guy sleep!

I notice neither shoulder being is worried about what will happen if an embassy official shows up and sees the gardener (1) asleep and (2) fraternizing with a foreign knight.

The embassy officials haven’t wandered out to the gates unannounced in all the time Thorn’s been working here, so he isn’t worried.

Besides, if it did happen, he would make something up (“I asked him to fix my telecrystal, so helpful!”) or hastily dump Leif under the counter.
