15 years

15 years have passed and life has been peaceful. Gawen cracks open a wine cask and using a ladel he pulls out some of the dark red liquid and takes a sip from it. Sighing happily to himself he smiles and pounds the lid back on it with a wooden hammer. Muttering to himself as he takes off the leather apron he is wearing. “Finally a suitable batch.” Most people would actually disagree with this comment. Each batch after the first three he made had sold completely.

Despite the success, Gawen has never truly been pleased with his wine. Though today was not a day to worry about any of it. Some of his larger customers were coming by today as was a friend he has not seen in a few years. Stretching a little as he pulls a shirt over his head and secures it at the shoulders with the velcro straps. The transport vehicle pulls up and Thermadors lackeys get out and proceed to load up the 10 barrels worth of bottled wine she ordered. Taking the payment, double what he normally charges, she has gladly paid each time since her first bottle.

Moving out to the vineyard and looking over the grapes that are still growing. He sighs with a smile on his face. It was days like this he actually managed to forget most of his problems and what started everything. It has been years since he had to put on his guns or to draw a single blade in an act of violence.

As he looks over his land her arms snake up his body, he tenses up a little and shoots his hands back and feels a familiar set of hips close to his. Leaning his head back and kissing his fiancee deeply he breaks the kiss to whisper. “You know one of these days I may just brain you when you do that.” A smile appears on his lips after he speaks.

Chuckling she moves around her metallic black wings shimmering a little in the noon day light she runs a finger along Gawens nose. “You know you would never actually manage to land that blow.”

Sighing again as he gives her another gentle kiss he turns his head to see the second expected guest for the day. Sighing and letting Angelia go he moves over, lifts up the small case of his last batch of wine and hands it over to the Angel messenger sent by his father. Just as he is handing over the case the messenger hands over a rather large embossed envelope. Taking the envelope from the man Gawen looks skeptically at the man. “You are fucking around with me right?” The man shrugs and then flies off back to Calenture.

Holding the invitation in his hand just staring at it Gawen shakes his head in disbelief. As he stares at the envelope Angelia swoops over him, grabs the invitation and rips it open. “Hey!” Gawen calls after her, and gives chase.

Reading the letter outloud she proceeds to evade Gawen in the sky. She had been a slightly better flyer than him but he was actually gaining a little bit on her. “Dear Gawen Sullivan, Son to the Regent Calenture, Keen eye of Calenture.” She giggles a little. “Oooo they used your full name and title too.” Her childish mocking getting Gawen to pursue her all the harder.

“Give that here, or I am gonna shot you!” Gawen calls back, as she flips over him in the air and makes a quick u turn.

Smiling she calls back “you would never do it.” She continues to read, “you have been invited to attend15 celebration of the Regent Calentures Reign on the 5th.” She pauses in mid flight but avoids Gawen again, this time she drops to about a foot off the ground. “Signed Regent Calenture. P.S Please at the very least try...” Gawen finally grabs the invitation from her and flys back to the house and lands.

As his feet touch he sees the final expected visitors. As the van pulls up Gawen begins to move towards it only to stop as Angelia almost plows him over as she lands on him with her legs wrapped around his hips. Walking somewhat awkwardly over he calls out. “Nev, how has life been treating you?”

I wouldn't have guessed that career for Gawen.
