When a writer has too much fun . . .  
“Sorry, I never did get around to introducing myself. I’m Ubno—Bruno—Clostuone.” He grinned a little aggressively. “Pleased to meet my other rival. I dated Rael when she was seventeen.”

Xen perked up and studied him. “Really? Tell me, did she already giggle and bounce like that at seventeen?”

“Pretty much, but then she went to Princess School and weaponized it.”

“You Oners will stop at nothing, will you?”

Don't know where this fits unless you are planning a Meet the Clan ( Montevideo ). But a good snippet, real attention grabber .

If you actually wanted to use this it would probably have to take place on Embassy.

Bruno might wish help in his attempts to expand CF medicine in the Empire or get an Eternal Youth potion so he could continue to play football or just help in having more children.

We haven't seen any comments, bur Bruno Clostuone has a Withione wife and twins. I would have expected both Xiat and Madam Taix to have noticed this.

Montevideo, after the Bank incident. Dinner with Rael's parents will be interesting.

"Are your intentions toward my daughter honorable?"

"It's not in my family traditions. None of my relatives are married"

I think "not getting married means the universe is less likely to just murder Rael" is sufficient reason.

Yeah, but do you say that to her father?

I may be strange, but actually, yeah I would say something along those lines in Xen's position.

I mean, I don't see how prioritizing Rael's health & safety over being bound to her by a social status construct is a bad thing?

Ok, admitting that loving her puts at risk may be suboptimal, except that even without the whole "God of Spies" thing she's already a known weakness of Xen's, & it has already put her life at risk, so acknowledging the risks & attempting to mitigate them is, as I see it, the correct _emotional_ response.

It more a matter of security ratings than social status. At any rate, th scene is written, and you guys will get it in all it's beauty, in a week or so.
