The Protectors: A for Affluence

A: Affluence
Seth isn't used to seeing so much wealth when he first moves to Rahuda.

“Oh, damn,” Seth said quietly. Sashe glanced over at him. He tipped over his wine glass, and a lone drop fell onto the blanket. “All out.” 

Sashe chuckled. “Don’t worry. Before long, we’ll probably start smuggling in liquor.” 

“Smuggling,” Seth repeated. “Like you guys can’t do anything you want already.” 

“What makes you think that?” Sashe asked, narrowing her eyes. 

“This place is huge.” Seth motioned with his arms. “You even had servants for dinner!”

Sashe shrugged. She reached for her hair to play with it before remembering it was pulled back in a braid. “That’s what happens when you’re the governor and a lord.”
