Seigneur – For @literallygeeked’s #SmallTales

Jean De Carteret flourished his new cape and looked sheepishly into his coin purse. It was worth it, the tithes would recompense him for his extravagant cape purchases soon enough. A seigneur of a fiefdom must look the part, after all. He swept into his overlord’s hall with a beaming grin, heavy moleskin cloak verily polishing the floor with swooping finery.
“My good man!” his vassal lord beamed, presenting him with a long box.
Surely deeds and titles lay inside, in unquestionable ink.
“Gi’ us a tune, Jean!” cried his lord, as he pulled out the fife.
