applying old words to new

“So,” Keenan said, looking from Ezra and Winnie to Chris. “They were members of the Underground, but now they aren’t. Have I got that right?”

“Yes, sir,” Chris said. His brows furrowed. “If you’d allow it, I’d like to be the only in command of them.”

“Their sponsor?”

“Is that what they decided to call it?” Chris said. His brows twitched as he tried not to laugh. That word made it sound as if they were recovering from some sort of addiction.

Keenan shrugged. “My vote was for either mentor or sitter and Bertram suggested supervisor,” he said. He grinned and added, “Alistair vetoed our suggestions and we ended up calling it a sponsor instead.”

“What, exactly, is he meant to be sponsoring us in?” Ezra said, arching an eyebrow.

Smiling, Keenan leaned his elbows on the table and rested his chin on his folded hands. “You’re recovering criminals, Mr. Pemberton. He’s meant to guide you on the road to becoming law abiding, productive citizens.”

“That’s one way to put it,” Winnie said, smirking.
