    Summary

    You are more incompetent than usual, Maître Perrin observes drily, when that frightening-looking young advocate deigns to direct a glance in your direction. You drop any important document entrusted to you. You become incapable of speech. And the king’s councilors, they snicker.

    Summary

    Dear Lord, he thinks, is this what I’ve come to? In the old days, at least a man could get his cock sucked without engaging in confrontation. Camille seems compliant enough—more than compliant, actually; his affect usually suggests that he would like nothing more than to accommodate you. But then you’re wrong: you somehow find yourself outwitted and humiliated. It’s the same with Lucile. There should be a law against it.
