So many nights spent here--Sindre had grown attached to the galas and the balls and the men and women of the court dressed up in their fancy clothes. So very unlike the Empire of her time. It was a cruel, harsh Empire and even when they put on pretty clothes, it was only to conceal the rats underneath.
