“Aye, that might be true,” Eideard conceded her point as he waved for server to fetch them drinks “But I cannae in good conscience neglect you, either. For the good of our respective countries, of course, Lady Ambassador.”
Rosette laughed as he handed her the glass. She twirled it in her glowed hand, her eyes sparking with mirth.
„Diplomacy is a cruel mistress, Monsieur Clacher. I am sure your country is grateful for your sacrifice. Your ‘ealth!” she exclaimed as she raised her glass in a toast. She took a sip of the wine. She wasn’t the greatest fun of sparkling wine, but it served. She wasn’t here for the drinks, after all, but for the company. And aware as she was of the evil looks thrown in their directions, she couldn’t help but be pleased by Eideard’s friendly manner. Come what may, she could allow herself this one evening of indulgence. Besides, she was the ambassador. She was doing her job. And if it was more out of her sympathies than sense of duty, well. What evil could come of that?

Rosette’s laughter sang out like music as she accepted the glass he offered. He quite enjoyed the sound, and found himself looking for ways to hear it again. Easier when the stakes were lower, when he didn’t have to worry about what people around him thought, or the relationship between nations that might have balanced upon his humor and charms.
“Diplomacy is a cruel mistress, Monsieur Clacher.” He mourned quietly for the casual way they’d addressed one another only days ago. Or the day they’d gone riding. “I am sure your country is grateful for your sacrifice.”
“The reward is certainly worth the sacrifice, My Lady Ambassador.” If she was being careful, then he would be as well. Since she’d pointed it out, he couldn’t help but notice the eyes of others upon them. The mistrust. Sometimes scorn. More than their respective countries, they needed to use care for her safety. “And the company is not too bad, either.”
“Your ‘ealth!” she said with a raise of her glass. How could he argue that?
He accepted her toast with a sincere nod of his head, and drank a small sip. Not too much. He’d had enough tonight already and did not want to mar an nice evening by overindulging. “Thank you, My Lady.”
He leaned closer, enough to be private but not vulgar or inappropriate. Close enough to appreciate the subtle scent that emanated from her. “And now I will take your advice, and take my attention elsewhere.” There were others he needed to greet, certainly, and niceties to extend. “If you’ve not had the pleasure of meeting His Majesty, I would be delighted to introduce you later.” He fully expected that she already had met the royals, but he would not assume.
“But for now,” he said as he lifted her hand to his lips, lightly brushing the knuckles, “I will leave you.”
