"After the party has finished I would like my birthday present, " he whispered in her ear before kissing the top of her head. Cal made no attempt to hide her shudder of disgust.

"Hasn't Mark given ya a present already?" she hissed back, gritting her teeth.

She felt the vibrations of Lysander's chuckle: "I do not think you understand the rarity of your present among downtowners. Mark does not have what you have."


"Do I have a choice?" she asked aggressively.

"Of course, " he reassured her. "I will never force somebody to have sex with me. And I'm sure you wouldn't want that three-thousand yuan anyways."

Her eyes widened. Three-thousand yuan – that was more than any servant would make in five years.

"No… No. You can have it for the yuan."

"Good girl." He kissed the top of her head again. "Meet me in my quarters once everything's been cleaned up after the party." He paused for a moment in thought. "Listen, I can promise that it'll be enjoyable for the both of us. I'm not into hurting people. And remember, I won't force you… It would just make me very happy."

Without another word, she squirmed out of his embrace and strode towards the kitchen. Lysander watched her go with an amused smile before making eye contact with Mark. Once Mark realised Jordanis was staring back at him he quickly looked down and continued his work.

After washing her hands and putting on gloves, Cal jumped in beside Erik to cut up some barely-defrosted potatoes. Like many downtowners,

"Let's try not to be to conspicuous tonight, okay?" Koris said to Flick as their shuttle hovered inside the city border tunnel. There were a bunch of shuttles in line for the border security drive-thru. Apparently Lysander had invited half of Manticore Metropolis to his festivity.

Koris glanced at the younger man, his wide eyes intrigued him.

"Something wrong?"

Flick shook his head. "Nah… I'va just never gone–"

"I've just, " Koris iterated. "Continue."

"I've just never gone past the city border. Have you?"

"Not on many occasions, " Koris admitted. "There's no real reason to."

"But you'va, " the boy quickly corrected himself, "you've been to one of the moon thingies up there, " he said with a cock of his head to show he was talking about the sky on the other side of the tunnel roof.

"It's not that great up there, " he reassured the young man.

"It ain't that great down here."
