Drowning in Bosoms and Brandy

Life in his home city had always been easy for Mendez. Easy women, easy friendships and a rich father to bail him out. It was all such a game.
Now though, after a year of adventuring, life doesn’t seem so simple.
Risking his life hadn’t felt real until his young companion Telfis lay dead at his feet. He had initially dismissed the boy as a ragamuffin, but over time he realised that they were very much alike. If Mendez hadn’t had the love and security of a wealthy family, he would probably have ended up much the same way.
So now, after the dust of battle has settled, Mendez mopes in a bar. Despite the women and booze, he can’t help feeling lost.
