Léon Belmont; An Audience with Monsieur Laurent
Subject: An Audience with Monsieur Laurent
Who: Léon Belmont
Where: The French Embassy
Open to: Augustine Laurent, Jacques Belmont
Léon had been meaning to speak to the young man for some time. He had almost brought it up the evening Monsieur Laurent arrived at the Embassy, but the presence of his son at the dinner table and the appearance of politeness kept it from his lips. But Augustine had been in the country long enough now, and it seemed that he could be trusted. He was always helpful, prompt, intelligent in his contributions- almost, in fact, the prefect secretary. Almost, but not quite. There was, unfortunately, the small matter of his family.
"Augustine?" He called, knocking on the door that separated his own office from that of his assistants, aides, and other secretaries. "May I have a word with you? In private?" He asked, opening the door and waiting for the young man to join him, smiling slightly. He did not want Augustine to be anything but relaxed, unworried about the matter they were to discuss.
