Early Afternoon, The 8th of the Scales of Judgment, 5152
Masquerade Ballroom, Dimant, Capital City of Sector A, Dirys
As Edgar had promised, the center of attention in the ballroom today was one Ser Phineas de Castillon III, as well as Irene, now the Lady de Castillon. Edgar had found some wonder new silverware for them, as the newlyweds certainly deserved more gifts than a single book, though Phineas did seem rather thrilled that Edgar had picked out a romance novel. Edgar had only picked it because the cover looked nice, but it just so happened to be the latest installment of a series that Phineas was a fan of. Well, at least it meant that Phineas did had some genuine interest in romance. Edgar was certain, Phineas had absolutely no idea that he had paid for a slave. He must have truly loved her, though whether or not Irene had told Phineas the truth, Edgar did not know.
The past week had been relatively quiet, or at least as far as quiet could be when you were the host of some many festivities. Zechariah would be returning in just two more days, and although he didn't always meet with Zechariah or Nicole, he took some comfort in the idea that they were still somewhere in Sector C. Now, neither of them were even in Dirys. Nicole was off in Liesdro, but it was for a good cause. Zechariah, however, he was not sure, but he did seem excited about the opportunity. Compared to them, Edgar felt a little lonely. They were off trying to accomplish something, but here he was, just waiting for the right opportunity to approach him. Phineas and Irene could enjoy their day in the spotlight, and it would be selfish to try and let his own loneliness get in the way of that.
For now, Edgar would simply mingle with the crowd. After all, Phineas had extended his invitation to even the most common people. It hurt Edgar somewhat to agree to let the riffraff into the ballroom, but was that not another gift to Phineas? The bigger your audience was, the bigger your reputation must have been. It meant that all these people would have come here to see him. Perhaps the same could have been said for Edgar himself. Perhaps he wasn't entirely lonely today.
