2. "My aunt made me an offer I had to refuse," said Jared. He looked forbidding.Kami knew that expression, and remembered the feeling that used to go with it: he was unhappy. "So you ran away from home," she said. "To become a tavern wench.""I'm not a tavern wench," said Jared. "That's not a job." His voice was slightly less stern than before, as if he was taken aback."It sounds like you're a tavern wench," Kami told him. "Fleeing persecution, you have to take up a menial occupation to keep your body and soul together. But at least its honest work, though as you labor, many predatory customers make advances and offer indignities.""One can only hope," Jared responded."
