Junebug By Poindexter Completed

As ninth in line for the throne, Argus knows he is never to be king, but that doesn't stop him from seeking every opportunity to gain political power. More than anything he wants to escape his engagement to his cousin and, due to complications surrounding the origins of his birth, to be seen as an equal to his brothers.
      He gets his chance when a diplomatic visit reveals the plot of a stolen cargo ship that could cause national unrest for the empire, it's alliances, and possibly even war.
      However, finding the stolen cargo proves to be more difficult than he thought and his only captured suspect, a pirate named Leonardo, won't tell him all the secrets he's keeping. As Argus and Leo grow closer, both to each other and discovering where the cargo disappeared, they uncover a plot that threatens the lives of their allies and enemies alike.

Really liked the line "hacked through syllables..." Great description.

This is wonderfully witty and like the fanciest and gayest chapter I've read in awhile.

LOL, I like that. Funny and a bit of world-building too xP Nicely done. However, the pronoun made me a little unsure as to who was speaking? Maybe adding a name would help?

I love this! Enyo is hilarious and I loved his interjections to the conversation and how unashamed he and Argus are about their relationship. I love anything with pirates in it and this chapter really made me excited for their adventure to begin.

Wait I'm confused... is it a homosexual relationship or is one a girl? Cuz I read that both of them are males.

Hmmm, maybe I'm missing something, but I'm wondering why Argus is at risk of being arrested or interrogated. He didn't do anything wrong, did he?
