You're Sure About This?

"You're sure about this?" Richard asked his son. He spun his chair around to sit.

Djinn didn't hesitate. "Yes. Surer than I've ever been in all my time. We've talked rather extensively. She's definitely the one. We get along very, very well."

Richard made himself comfortable and continued. "Good. You look happy, son. That makes me happy. I must apologize for the whole thing with Thea'Dora. We really did think you'd be a good match, but you're really a better judge of that, aren't you...since it's your life."

Djinn laughed abruptly. "Something like that, dear father." He gestured idly toward the gold bars sitting on Richard's table. "So what are those worth, these days?"

"As you know, we elders opted for a cashless/coinless society. All is trade and barter. This, as far as I'm concerned is the way to keep your assets portable and more or less 'liquid'. Terran gold.... The large bars are worth about $100,000 apiece now. I think the smaller ones are maybe worth 15 or 20 thousand. You'll have to get them weighed and certified. Of course, the older and more scarce it becomes, the more valuable it is. I'd have one of the large ones sliced up and certified, if I were you. Do you have a safe?"

"Glory does...and I know the combination. That's all worked out."

"Give Blaise about half of one of those big ones and he'll sell you everything you'll need for that house and have it installed. Is Silvio having the house built for her?"

"Yes, that's her grand-father's gift to her. Works for me!" Djinn smiled.

"Oh yes, the books you asked for are right there. You say Glory wants to read them? Well! There you go. Planning on combining forces there?"

"Maybe, but that's her decision based on her knowledge. She's a smart girl and kind of amazing."

"Just slightly. Look at what she did for me!" Richard gestured proudly at his latest portrait, hanging behind him.

I wonder where I saw the Comte portrait before Wink I like the difference between Richard and the room for one side, and Djinn forthe other side.
