16. Lovers' Vice
"This isn't as easy as it looks, my lady. I hardly expect you to comprehend the difficulties. Besides, these tools are all secondhand."
"I only asked for a small garden, Legolas. Not an entire forest of flowers."
"You deserve a forest of flowers, Rian. Nothing less."
Rain began to fall, and they rushed back into the cottage. They abandoned their gardening work for the day, but that didn't mean they couldn't still have fun. Bickering gave over to playing as they ran out into the deluge. It was always a vice of theirs.
