After a year full of adventure, intrigue, and tragedy, Sicarius agrees to spend Solstice Day on a tropical island with Amaranthe, resting and relaxing far away from the chaos of the new republic. But there are a couple of problems. First off, the island is riddled with old wanted posters of Sicarius, along with countless people who would like to collect the bounty. Second... Amaranthe is hoping for a Solstice Day gift.
Sicarius, having never given a gift in his life, finds the second problem far more daunting.
