Summary: And as they enter what should have been an empty library, Geralt’s senses are immediately assaulted with the sound of a voice he recognizes all too well; one he didn’t think he’d ever hear again; one that brings a strange tightness to his chest. “Jaskier,” Ciri breathes, taking Geralt completely by surprise as she runs towards the bard. Or: With Ciri finally in Geralt’s care, they seek temporary refuge at Oxenfurt Academy while on the run from Nilfgaard’s soldiers – and promptly run into Jaskier. And Geralt is surprised to find out that his Child Surprise knows Jaskier very well.
Recommendation: Ack, I love the thought of Ciri and Jaskier knowing and loving each other. So cute. And apologies, we are here for them.
