This is a good little story that keeps a fine slip throughout. Despite it's short length, there was enough world-building to make the story feel involved. I liked that the characters knew each other from previous encounters, and the reader got to learn about these engagements as they went. I feel like, perhaps, this could have been enhanced by spending more time with character development (maybe even having them live out some of these scenes) before the plot begins. Because this is a short story, perhaps a "prologue" short story that comes before this one would better engage the reader before things get too crazy for the characters. It ends on a good note, concluding the main plot of this volume and introducing what will happen next well.
