“Julia, darling, you fell back asleep.”
Julia groaned, “You let me? Why didn’t you wake me?’
“I feel asleep too Lambkins. I woke you when I came back around.”
Julia turned in Roman’s arms. Her face brushed against his. She rubbed her cheek against his, purring.
“This is nice, but did you really just call me lambkins?”
“I did.” Roman smiled as her hair tickled his face. “You like it when I recite Shakespeare, remember.”
“Oh, I remember.” Julia’s lips gently brushed Roman’s nose, before softly pressing against his lips.

Van Haas’s face blanched then blushed a ruddy hue as shock, then embarrassment crossed his features. “Ms. Palatine, Julia.” van Haas’s voice dropped when he said her name. “I am in a position of great power and wealth. I have extensive lands and many people follow me within my organization. You are too lovely and should not be expected to participate in the masculine world of business, you…”
“I am going to stop you right there, before you say anymore that you will regret. I do not know the feminist climate of South Africa, but I can tell you right now as a woman in business, you aren’t ever going to get anywhere by telling a woman she should or should not do something.”
“Forget I said anything about business.” van Haas waved his hand dismissively. “I am leaving here soon. We have not had any time to be alone together. I would just like to spend some time with you. You invited me here. And it’s been all business and genetics the entire time.”
“Because I invited you to a genetics conference.”
“Yes, well you invited me, and I came. You have spent too much of my time with other people. I think we should return to my suit and…”
Julia held up her hands in front of her, stopping van Haas from continuing. “No. Clearly, there has been a miscommunication.” This explained his oily demeanor when the others weren’t around. “I am not, no.” She let out a breath. “I don’t want to assume anything, however, I have a very strong feeling that you are about to make a claim with emotional expectations. I am not, I have not done anything that should warrant these expectations from you.”
“You invited me.”
“I also invited the alpha of the Meyer family in Canada.”
