Charls, the cloth merchant is probably the most entertaining character in the whole series and it’s so much fun reading about everyone from his perspective.

- Prince Laurent aka young Charls wants to accompany Charls on his trade trip to Aegina and he is delighted.
- I don’t think there is anyone more loyal or who admires Laurent more than Charls. He just adores his prince.
- Laurent is there to save the day when another merchant Makon spreads misinformation about Charls.
- I love that the name Damen goes by with the group is essentially a Damen Laurent ship name “Lamen” .. it’s hilarious.
- Their horses are poisoned and it’s Lamen’s forewarning that prevents most of them from being killed.
- They rest at a small inn, not their usual fare and a fight breaks out because not all people still like the alliance.
- Laurent saves a farmer boy and they hide out along with Charls behind a table.. and Laurent is throwing olives at the people who are fighting… Can you believe it… He is absolutely hilarious !!!!
- Charls asks Lamen to cook a dead rabbit because his precious Prince’s hands are not made to hold dead things. And Lamen obviously has no clue what to do with it either… 😂😂😂😂
- They all have an intense discussion about the alliance and then the topics veer into how Damen and Lauren possibly fell in love and about their faithful love life. I think Charls feels more embarrassed than the lovers 😀😀
- Apparently the whole trip was Laurent’s plan to uncover the illegal slave trade of Makon and it’s so heartening to see them save the slaves and provide them safety.
- Charls wants to advise Lamen about his relationship with the Prince because he is now the lover of King Damianos.
“Charls,” said Lamen, “I’d work my whole life to be worthy of him.”

- Charls is glad his Prince will have an unswerving companion like Lamen by his side.
- He is delighted to receive invitations to be a part of the ascension celebrations and then King Laurent introduces him to King Damianos. That ending is just soooo funny.
“Why are you dressed up like the King?” 😂😂😂😂

This was the most fun I had while reading this series. Charls is a very appealing character and his perspective is super funny. And I love his devotion for his Prince. I just wish there were more stories after.

First Thoughts
This series has been more about tension and intrigue and angst for me, but this short story is hilarious and brings a whole new fun element to our favorite fantasy world. Charls is adorable, his loyalty to his Prince is commendable and I loved getting to know him better.

This story also gives us a little more insight into the kind of Kings Damon and Laurent would be, their convictions and the lengths to which they would go to do right by their people. It felt very good to read about them again and I wish the author would keep writing short stories in this world. ( )

This was so delightful! Pacat is a master of extremely vivid background characters, and Charls is no exception, so to get a separate short-story about him is an amazing treat.

Charls is endearingly fussy, proper, and not interested in much of anything, except cloth, which also makes him a bit slow on the uptake and creates a plethora of hilarious situations. Also, hijinks! Nothing brings me more joy then Damen and Laurent in disguise getting up to shit – it’s wildly romantic and tells you a lot about their relationship.

I usually take a lot of notes and then incorporate them into my reviews, but I decided to just leave them as is. Below is mostly yelling and some favorite quotes, which can also be a bit spoilery, so I’ll just put it under the cut.

• Damen will need to do something about those holes in the knowledge of silk.
• I love Jazar and Dord, they seem like great guys.
• Every time Laurent’s love of horses is mentioned/demonstrated, I suddenly need HELP.
‘There are two Veretian cloth merchants named Charls,’ said the guard.
‘It’s a common name in Vere,’ said Young Charls.
‘More common with every day,’ said Lamen.

I am YELLING.

• Damen has a dimple. THIS IS NOT A DRILL HE HAS A DIMPLE.
BAR BRAWL
• The throwing of olives goes to demonstrate just how much of a little shit Laurent is. Like, in general.
• The whole dead rabbits debacle had me in stitches!
A Prince’s hands are instruments of refinement. A Prince’s hands are not made to touch a dead rabbit.
And then:
Lamen and the Prince were together at the tree edge. The rabbits were on the ground, except for the one that Lamen was holding by the leg, gingerly. The Prince was wiping his eyes, laughing.
It’s such a delightful, lighthearted picture of them, my heart is melting.
‘Do you think they’re doing it?’
I would like to thank Alexon for asking important questions.
‘Seven hours,’ said Lamen, frowning slightly.
Damen has zero chill when it comes to romantic conquests.

• And, of course, the crowning glory, the quote of quotes:
‘Lamen,’ said Charls, in a shocked voice. ‘Why are you dressed up like the King?’


All in all, I loved every second of it. Will reread multiple times. Simply put: pure joy ❤ ( )

I laughed so hard I sprained a muscle in my belly. Thanks to Moony for nudging me for weeks to start this short story already! :*

C.S. Pacat's dry humor is something that could never be reproduced.
I recommend you read this after [b:The Summer Palace|33230173|The Summer Palace (Captive Prince Short Stories, #2)|C.S. Pacat|https://images.gr-assets.com/books/1482148111s/33230173.jpg|53939120]. ( )
