Beth lounged in the chair across from him, her glass of Cognac almost empty now and she smiled at him. "Another glass would be lovely, but if you damage those cards I will hold you responsible. They don't come cheep, you know." She set her glass down on the table, considering Sergius. "I would make a very fine beneficiary but I don't know about Sebastian - it's rather strange to leave your fortune to your banker, and he is stealing it all from you anyway."
Beth picked up her glass again, rolling her eyes.
"As for re-marriage did you go through the poor things money so fast? I suppose re-marriage might be good for you, third time lucky as they say." She swallowed the last dregs of her Cognac and offered the glass to him to refill.
