    Summary

    “He was—” Damen breaks off, swallows hard, pauses in the manner of a man soundly failing to find an explanation in what he is trying to explain, “—really pretty.”

    “What,” says Nikandros, “the fuck.”

     
    The first time Damen meets Laurent, he mistakes him for a pet. It doesn't go well.

    No one lets him forget it.

    Summary

    The thing about Damianos Akielos is that he is a Hot Commodity. There’s probably a 30 page waiting list out there of people who want a chance to date him. The only problem is that since the age of fourteen, he’s never been single for more than a week. A week!

    “He sounds great,” the bartender says, polishing a glass. Laurent realises that he’s been speaking out loud. He is drunk. He also realises that this bartender - Rick, or Mick, or Mike, or whatever his nametag says, words are a little blurry at this point - doesn’t realise the magnitude of the situation at hand.

    Damen Akielos is Single, Facebook says.

    “He’s single,” Laurent says.

    Summary

    ”Apologies, Exalted. What I meant – ”

    “What you meant is that you don’t know why I can’t remember anything since His Majesty flayed my back and had me dressed in gold paint and slave’s garb to serve him. But he was a prince then. And a king now.”

    Laurent tried to hide his flinch at the words, at his own memories. He looked away to the marble floor.

    Damianos continued: “You say that was four years ago. In that time, I seem to have aligned myself with him in country and in marriage. And no one tried to stop me.”

    Summary

    “Forgive me,” Damianos said. “If you could perhaps- elaborate?”

    Laurent passed a hand over his face. It appeared that Damianos was incapable of picking up on subtly, and needed to be handled with the most straightforward approach. Very well.

    “I have never,” Laurent said plainly. “And I would like to make my own judgments on the supposed delights, preferably before I leave Akielos.”

    Summary

    “The Empress sends her wishes for your happy and long union.” The Ambassador waves forward a box, “And a gift that your lines might continue this happy union of nations.”

    Damen raises confused eyebrows at Laurent in the throne beside him.

    “We send our heartfelt thanks,” Laurent says calmly. “We shall have to find a way to repay such a generous gift.”
