The young man was lounging upon one of the garden benches, dressed in richly coloured robes and looking utterly unconcerned with the rest of the party, including the curious, decorative peacock that had made its way over and seemed to be debating whether this gaudy creature was the same species as it. Lucius brushed it away as it fanned out its feathers and pecked at him.
