I'm picking up this week where I left off in my last snippet from The Prince's Consort. Here's Philip beginning to put Amory's father in his place.
He turned the full force of his most regal stare on Arnau and waited. Waited. There. The first hints of uncertainty in that insufferable expression. Just because he found out somehow Philip preferred to spend his time with men, and presumably Amory did as well, didn’t mean his little plan should succeed.
“I think whether Master Amory and I would like to further our acquaintance is not solely a question for me, but for Master Amory as well,” he said after a pause he judged long enough.
“He does, of course,” Arnau said. “He would be honored to further an acquaintance with you, Your Highness, and do anything you wish for him to do.”
Philip fought to keep his voice even. “I would much rather hear from Master Amory.”
Arnau none-too-gently nudged his younger son, who remained frozen at his side. “Tell the prince, Amory. Now.”
“No,” Philip interrupted. “I will speak with Master Amory alone.”
