    Summary

    Even when they took tea, rarer these days than ever, Hubert appeared utterly determined not to let Ferdinand see anything more than he already had. Frankly, Ferdinand wasn’t sure what else he could possibly dredge up from those impossibly inky depths that was worse than the oil slick he’d lived alongside for the past six years, but one didn’t catch a Fodlandy without patience and bait aplenty.


    Six months after the end of the war, they all have their coping mechanisms. The Emperor tends to her garden, Ferdinand to his stables, and Hubert to his duties. It would all work perfectly, if Ferdinand could simply keep the oven door shut.

    Summary

    “You have a very charming daughter,” he’d said when they’d first met. And then, “Your daughter is so charming,” when they’d met again.

    Which was barely the half of it. Compliments spilt forth from him with such ease it made her wonder. Not that she was in the business of prying. And not that it mattered what he felt if her daughter did not reciprocate. Still. Once a person develops the talent for seeing when a man is in love, it is difficult to ignore. She saw love on his face when he looked at Jester. Heard it in his voice when he spoke of her. The cogs of evidence turned without fault.
