Lord Young cocked an eyebrow, urging the boy to explain.

"I just don't think it's my kind of thingy. I know I don't get to enjoy things like other people do and that's annoying."

"It's good you know that about yourself, " was all Koris could think to say.

There was another silence, but not a painful one like the previous one.

"So, " Koris began cautiously, "does Lord Jordanis… know?"

Flick looked down before nodding.

"That's okay, " he reassured him. "I just want you to be prepared."

"For what?"

"For Lysander to tell the public."

The young man's eyes widened. "He wouldn't do that!"

"Lysander plays dirty."

"But what does that have to do you or any political thingies?"

"Nothing, but he'll weave it into our debate somehow."

He may even weave in the fact he 'knocked' you.

Lady Sun looked surprised to see the pair home so early. She knew very well that Lysander's parties never ended early.

"What happened?" she asked.

Lord Young watched Flick stride into his room and close the door before he turned to Andromeda. "Lysander seduced Flick when tā was at his most vulnerable and was… intimate with him, " he hissed so that the young man could not hear.

Andromeda's eyes widened, although a part of her was not surprised.

"Is Flick hǎo ma?" she asked.

Koris nodded. "Wǒ think so. Tā's probably more worried about wǒ being mad at him than he is about Lysander taking sexual advantage of him."

"How far did Lord Jordanis get with tā?"

"Not sure. Not very

meda said instinctively before she remembered that Flick's Mandarin was poor. "You okay?"

The young man nodded despite his solemn his face.

"He's not mad at you, just stressed, " she explained as she took a seat at the foot of his bed.

He brought his knees up to his chest while lying down on the thin mattress. He never slept with a thin silk blanket like everyone else in the household did. Partly because it was always too warm, and partly because he felt the blanket would turn into a net if he wanted to escape.

"But I did stuff with the baddy, " he mumbled.

"Lord Jordanis is not a baddy, " her eyes went to the plasma screen ceiling for a moment. "Well, actually he kind of is, but it doesn't matter that you did 'stuff' with him providing he didn't hurt you or take advantage of you." She leaned a little closer. "Promise me he didn't take advantage of you and everything will be fine."

He looked her in the eyes and nodded.

"Then there's nothing to worry about, " she said simply.
