April 5th excerpt:

“I hope we’re making good impressions,” Jacob said seriously, getting the kids to snicker. He smirked and poked at one of their sides, and they squeaked and scurried to hide behind Sam and the lucky little sprite getting a piggyback ride.

“I think you’re doing a pretty good job,” Sam said as the kids peeked out from behind his legs. He kept one hand on Vel’s leg, and brushed the hair of the nestlings that were hiding behind him with his other hand for reassurance. Vel’s little arms rested on his head for balance. “Not even a bruise on these guys.”

Vel the wood sprite by @creatorofuniverses, she is the best!
