Sian flinched at his description of the weapon. “Those bright stones would be called gemstones. Rubies and emeralds to be exact. Although those are fake.” She bent low and picked up the sword. “Compared to yours J’dol, this weighs nothing.”

 Disappointment coursed through. They were doing it again. No. He was doing it again. She was making an effort. She was dressed in her sexiest lingerie standing in the doorway to his home office, hoping, wishing, that’d he look at her. He’d barely raised his head from his computer.
