    Summary

    The man pauses thoughtfully. "You can tell me what's wrong over lunch," he says, "and we can try to find a solution. If you want."

    Ancel gives the man a more considering look. He's young, only about ten years older than Ancel himself and- and he's wearing a Rolex. Ancel feels himself taking a step closer. "If you wouldn't mind," he says. "I'd be so grateful."

    Summary

    The Personal Escort Treaty - or P.E.T. - system was put in place for rich and lonely travellers to hire companions and assistants for extended periods of time. It was originally intended as a way to combat the negative mental health effects of continuous solitude that is common in anyone stuck in a spaceship without human contact.

    Berenger needs a P.E.T., Ancel is more than happy to oblige.

    Summary

    Laurent gestured subtly, towards the other end of the ballroom where a group of men were talking amiably. “Him,” Laurent said.

    Auguste looked. “What about him?”

    “I’m going to court him.”

    There was a long pause. “That’s King Damianos of Akielos.”

    “Okay,” Laurent replied.

    Summary

    “The Prince has been charged with treason. It looks as if he will either be found and killed, or face trial and…”

    “Executed,” Ancel says. He’s no longer smiling. They both know what this means.

    “It’s time for you to,” Berenger pauses, “move on.”

    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.
