Nothing better than anticipation

Bertram couldn’t help a faint smile when he took Beth’s hand in his. He led her to the dance floor, then turned to face her. He gave her a little bow, as she curtseyed. Then, he led her in the dance. He’d dreamed of this moment since Keenan had mentioned that a group would be coming from Equisetia.

“I’ve missed you,” he said, his voice faint. “Have – have you been well?” It wasn’t what he’d meant to ask. He’d meant to ask if she had begun seeing someone.”

Beth nodded. “Busy,” she said. Her brows furrowed slightly. “I’ve missed you too, Bertram. There’s… there’s been talk of a group from Shynian Intelligence being assigned to the embassy in Equisetia.”

Blinking, Bertram shook his head. “I hadn’t heard,” he admitted. His brows furrowed. He wondered if he could convince Urban to let that team be his. He wondered if Beth would want that.

“Maybe – maybe you’ll be part of the team?” Beth said, tilting her head to one side.

Again, Bertram smiled. “Maybe I will,” he said. He would definitely ask.
