Aimee King By AimeeSophie94 Updated 8 hours ago

Leora has only ever been two things: an orphan, and a thief. 

The castle dungeons have become a second home to her. A far better home than her current one: the streets. However, every time she is thrown into the dungeons she is freed by the King himself. She doesn't know why, but she finds it is best not to ask questions when things are going your way as that's a sure-fire way to turn the tide against you.

One day the King summons her to the castle and calls upon her to undertake a dangerous mission which will require her specific skill set: thievery. With a reward of fortunes beyond anything she has ever known, the choice should not be too hard. But when it comes at the cost of leaving behind everyone she has ever known, including her best friend Olivar and her fellow orphans, not to mention she will be accompanied by the Captain of the Guard who is not too fond of her - to put it mildly - then perhaps this mission will not be as easy as she thinks.

This story will be updated every Tuesday and Friday.

Oh my, is this the head of the guards that hates her? Well, you know what they say. There is a thin line between love and hate; A line that can easily be crossed. 😉
It was actually on a map generator but I edited it in paint. Thank you. I hope you enjoy it! :)
I would probably put a colon here, because you're almost making a list. 
                              
                              Should read as: the advantages of being a small person: normal sized manacles were too big. 
                              
                              Of course, a semicolon works technically, and you can keep it if you want, just trying to be helpful
