Sarun, Appointee of Rixo, is pacing back and forth in his garden, lost in thought. Around him, the serfs are working the estate; inside, the servants are keeping up the house; his wife is around here somewhere, sitting outside in the cool of the evening with the kids, but he can't hear them, they probably went down to the stream. He is thinking about currency issues; they just keep coming up.
"Then can you tell me about yourself?"
Come on, charm, work for me here! Don't be limited to humans!
"Why not? What do you do with your time?"
See, the whole reason she tried to get charm is because she knew she isn't any actually good at this.
"What does that consist of?" Silda has ALL THE TIME IN THE WORLD.
She smiles. "Can you tell me about that?"
She cocks her head and listens intently.
