Well, it certainly takes more effort to write Charles’ dialogue and hope that it’s consistent. 😀

Charles grins crookedly.

    • Yeah, he’s got a bit of a sad backstory, but that will be revealed later on. ;D

      Well, that’s good. I wouldn’t like his dialogue to break the reader out of the pace of the story, yet I want to give that idea of broken English. 😉
