Sergius raised an eyebrow, but didn't look up at her, moving a card from pile to pile, and then turning over the one underneath. "Sebastian is hardly stealing much anymore. Only when he doubts I will notice. Perhaps one day I shall tell him what he owes me. But I doubt I would live long after that." He smiles, reaching over for the bottle and pouring the young lady another. "And no, my fortune is not all spent yet. I wouldn't wish to be disrespectful and spend it all too soon. I was thinking of re-marrying for the companionship. Perhaps an heir. But no doubt you and Sebastian would not appreciate that." He said, turning over another card.
He paused, looking up at her again, smiling slightly. "What do you think, Beth? Maybe I should put myself back on the social scene."
