Before I even manage to make my way through to the reception, Sonia's bright and chirpy voice cuts through the silence. "Good evening, sir, how can I help you?"

The man coughs, and I hear the shifting of cloth. He's uncomfortable, then. Perhaps it's his first time visiting an establishment like this. "I've come to make an appointment," he says.

I freeze behind the thick velvet curtain which separates the two rooms, recognising the voice as one I never thought I'd hear again. And to some extent, one I hoped I wouldn't.

"Do you have someone in mind?" Sonia asks. "If you want an appointment now, I believe Bindi is free, or else I can book you in for one of the other girls later."

"I, er, I was hoping to make an appointment with Lady Catherine," he says.

"I'm sorry, sir. Lady Catherine doesn't take appointments any longer." Sonia's voice is firm, unlike how mine would be if I tried to speak.

"Oh."

Silence stretches between the two of them, and I realise I need to act. I know this man, and he's not going to stop looking for me if Sonia turns him away now.

I take a deep breath, though it does nothing to steady the nerves within me. I push the curtain to the side and step through the doorway. I spare a quick glance at the man, but don't look at him for more than a moment. I'm not ready yet. Luckily, his back is to me, and I have a few more seconds to compose myself.

"It's okay, Sonia," I reassure my receptionist. "I'll see him."

The man turns around, his gaze resting on my face. Recognition and relief flash through his expression. "Kitty," he says.

"Benedict," I respond coolly, then wait until Sonia has left the room. It's not that I don't trust her. More that I don't trust anyone with the knowledge of this man.

"It's been a long time," he says.

"Hmm."

"You're looking well."

"Regular blood, a good living, decent clothes, I can't complain," I snap, trying not to be too hurt by how flippant he's being about our situation.

"I didn't expect to find you here," he admits, a tinge of sadness in his voice. "I asked around, and everyone I talked to suggested you were, but I didn't want to believe it..."

I snort. "You didn't want to believe that the innocent maiden Kitty Knoylls became the infamous Madam Catherine?" I laugh at the irony there. He's not the only one to have had a rude awakening over the matter.

"Something like that," he admits. "This doesn't seem like your kind of thing."

"It's been over five hundred years, how would you know what my kind of thing was anymore?" I snap.

Just then, the bell rings, and another potential client walks in. Surprising, given the timing, but I'll take it as a way to stop the awkward conversation no doubt about to happen.

I plaster a winning smile on my face and turn to greet him. "Mr Mills, what a surprise. I'm not sure Madeline is free at the moment." That's a lie, but I want to give myself a chance to escape from Benedict's proving gaze, and checking on her will do that.

"Oh, that's not a problem. Does she have a slot free?" he asks. "And it's a pleasure to see you again, Lady Catherine. I must apologise, I forget my manners."

"It's not a problem," I assure him. Especially with how often he's showing up at the moment. I should have a conversation with Madeline about it to make sure he's treating her okay. And not falling in love with her. That always ends badly. I've seen it happen more often than I want to admit, and it usually ends with spilt blood.

I make my way over to the desk and start tapping on the tablet, sending her a message. "Ah, it appears she's free. Would you like to take a seat in the other room? I can bring you a refreshment if you want one?"

"No, thank you, Lady Catherine. It appears you have your own guest. I'll be perfectly fine on my own." He dips his head, then disappears into the other room, leaving me alone with Benedict once more.

"What was that?" he asks once Mills has disappeared from sight.

I sigh. This is exactly what I want to avoid.

"It's my job," I point out. "He's come to see one of the girls, I tell her about it, she comes and takes him upstairs where they do whatever the two of them want to."

"And you're all right with that?" A horrified look crosses his face, though I'm not sure what part it's in response to.

I shrug. "Who am I to judge? They've chosen this as their profession, I make sure they're in a safe environment with all the comforts they can desire."

"I know what these places are like, Kitty..."

"Don't call me Kitty," I snap. "No one calls me that any more."

"I thought your friends called you it?"

"Then maybe you're not my friend any more." Anger seethes inside me. More than I expect. I always thought I'd be overjoyed when I saw him again, but that doesn't seem to be the case.

"We were so much more than that," he points out.

A bitter laugh escapes me. "We were. But that didn't stop you from throwing it all away, did it?" I counter.

He stares at me, a thousand questions in his eyes.

"What happened to you, Kitty?"

"I told you not to call me that." I cross my arms, trying to keep my voice level. The last thing I want is to cause a scene, especially when there are clients still in the building.

"I'm sorry, old habits die hard..."

"Yes. I'm sure they did. Five hundred years ago." Tears prick the corners of my eyes. I need to get rid of him. Now. "Get out, Benedict."

His eyes widen as the shock sets in. "What?"

"You heard me. Get out. I don't want to see you again." Each word lances through my heart in a way that couldn't be expected.

He isn't the man I fell in love with. If I remember that, then I may get out of this without shattering myself into thousands of pieces again.

"Get out," I repeat.

He opens his mouth to say something, but decides better of it and turns to leave. The front door slams behind him as silent sobs wrack through my whole body.

I hate him, but I love him.

And I don't know which is worse.

I met my gaze in the mirror and steadied myself. I had to do this. I needed to know if he was the person Nephthys had implied he was.
I reached out and touched the ankh, then waited. He would be here in a moment, I was sure of it. Though how he was travelling so quickly was still a mystery to me. Unless he was hiding in my room the entire time, but that seemed unlikely. Even if he was on Seth's side, he'd still have a lot of work to do
"Hathor."
His voice sent a shiver down my spine, causing my eyes to flutter closed. 
A hand pressed against my stomach, pulling me back into him. His lips trailed a line of kisses along my neck, and I leaned into him further. 
Gently, he turned me around so we were facing one another. Before I knew what was happening, his lips were on mine and I melted into him, all resolve completely gone. 
What was it I wanted to talk to him about again?
Oh. Wait. Seth.
It took all the inner strength I could muster to push him away, even if I knew it was for the best. I couldn't let him distract me with kisses. At least, not if I wanted anyone to take me seriously ever again.
The goddess of love tricked into thinking someone cared about her. I could almost hear the mocking tone already. Though I couldn't think of anyone but Horus who would use it towards me. The only reason he could was because he had a similar level of magic to me.
And he knew I wouldn't castrate him for Khonsu's sake. I didn't want to leave the moon god without a bed partner.
"Hathor? Are you okay?" Amun asked, something akin to true concern in his voice.
"Why didn't you tell me?" I answered.
He cocked his head to the side as he studied me. "Tell you what?" 
"You know what," I hissed, causing Ura to wake from her slumber on my pillow. I wanted to go comfort my pet snake, but refrained. It would ruin any upper hand I had.
Amun simply stared at me, either genuinely confused, or the world's best actor.
"Seth."
The name dropped between us like a stone. 
Understanding dawned on his face. "I wasn't aware my political affiliation was something I had to disclose," he said off offhandedly.
I took a step back to put some much needed distance between us, and bumped into my cosmetics table.
"This isn't about politics," I pointed out. "It's about the stability of the world."
He shrugged. "That's all politics is. Besides, the world needs a little chaos every now and again."
"And you think that's what Seth is planning? A little chaos?" My anger came through every word, but I didn't care. I needed him to realise how wrong his choice was.
Amun sighed. "He does this all the time. No harm ever comes of it." Something about the way he's saying it feels off. As if he doesn't believe it wholeheartedly.
There was hope yet. 
"I suppose there's no harm in the wars, genocides, and persecutions Seth's interference has caused, then?" I raised an eyebrow and waited for him to contradict that one. I still felt every death to the centre of my ba. I was mother to them all, and I would mourn them.
Amun looked visibly shaken, but I could tell he wasn't about to simply give in to me. Despite the touchy subject, I respected him for it. I wouldn't be giving in yet either.
"Every time Seth has tried something, we've stepped in and stopped him," Amun said quietly.
"As we should." I couldn't believe I'd almost sat this one out. I would have, if Ma'at hadn't stepped in and persuaded me. Which was why I had to do the same for Amun.
"But did you ever notice that things never got better after we stepped in?" Amun asked. "Seth never stopped plotting, the humans never stopped fighting. Everything simply continued."
"What are you saying?" I whispered, a little scared about what his answer might be.
Amun grimaced and ran a hand over his face and through his hair. At least he didn't seem to like what he was about to say. It was a small victory, but it was something.
"If we can't fix things by doing them our way, then we should try something different."
I blinked a few times, trying to process what he was saying and not just repeat his words. 
"You think doing things Seth's way will change things for the better?" I couldn't believe what I was hearing. It was a crazy idea.
"It's worth a try," he said softly.
"No. It isn't." 
"Hathor..."
"No," I repeated. "I think it's best you leave."
Amun's shock mirrored my own. I doubted either of us would have expected this of me.

"Excuse me?" a man asked from behind me. 

I jumped, not having expected anyone to want to talk to me. Especially since I didn't recognise the voice. He was probably someone who came with the Prince. I got up and turned around, dipping into a shallow curtsy. I had no idea who the man was, but I did know it was better to be polite. I tried to ignore the tickling sensation of Dart running down my back and disappearing behind the wall. At least she doesn't want to get caught, it makes protecting her easier. 

"Can I help you?" I asked, making sure to keep my voice light and airy. The last thing I want to do is insult one of the Prince's retinue. 

"It's a lovely sunset," he observed. "I was looking for somewhere to enjoy it, but I see this one is occupied." 

"You can join me, if you want," I suggested. "I'm not doing anything interesting, but if you want to look..." I shrugged. 

"Why would you want me to do that?" he asked, his brow furrowing. 

What did he mean? "Aren't you angling for an invite?"

He chuckled. "Are you offering one?" 

"It makes no difference to me if you sit next to me in silence, or if you go on your way. I'm only here for the peace." 

"In which case, I shall take you up on your offer." He came around and perched himself on the wall next to where I'd been sitting. 

I hopped back up, keeping my skirts over my legs this time. 

"Are you enjoying your time here?" I asked after a few moments of silence. 

"I thought you wanted to sit in peace," he teased. 

"It felt rude to do that," I muttered. 

He chuckled. "I understand that. It's one of the reasons I came out here in the first place. It seems as if no matter what room I go into, girls are constantly wanting to talk to me." 

"Oh, they've been told to do that," I answered flippantly. "Sort of." 

"Oh?" 

I sighed, unsure if I should tell the man what was going on. It went against what the Duchess had said, particularly as he'd run back to his master and tell him what was happening. Then again, the Prince probably deserved to know what was happening so he could choose to avoid everyone if he wanted to. 

"We've all been told to be as nice as possible to your master in case he wants to use us for nightly pursuits." 

"My master?" the man checked. 

"The Prince?" I countered. "I'm sorry, I haven't seen you before, I assumed you came with His Highness. Didn't you?" 

"Oh I did," he said, an odd tone to his voice. "Nightly pursuits? Really?" 

I nodded. "Between you and me, I think the Duchess wants us to spy on him, though who knows what she'd do with the information." I tried not to roll my eyes. This whole situation was ridiculous. Why was this even happening? 

"I don't think the Prince will even be thinking about those." 

Despite myself, I laughed, even though I knew I probably shouldn't. "I honestly didn't think he would be. I'm sure he has far more important things on his mind." 

"He also respects his people, and would never treat a woman that badly," the man said. 

"I like that." I stared out into the night, trying to work out where Dart disappeared to. I knew it was a good thing she wasn't still with me and gaining attention from the stranger, but I still missed her. 

"Tell me, what else do you like about the Prince?" he asked. 

"I see you're spying for him," I teased. 

"I promise, I'm not." 

I sighed loudly. "Honestly, I don't know anything about him, other than his name. We're not given many privileges here, so we don't hear about the world outside our walls." 

"But you're all dressed so finely," he observed. 

"We're not usually," I admitted. "It's normally rags and muck for us here. This is the first day off we've had since...well, I'm not even sure." 

"It's that bad?"

"You get used to it," I admitted softly. "It doesn't sound good, I know..." 

"It sounds awful. Have you tried appealing to someone?" 

A short bark of a laugh slipped out of me. "Who is going to listen to me? I'm a serving girl. I don't normally wear silk and lace, I normally spend my days sweeping ash out of the grate and trying not to burn my hands." I held them up to show him the welts there. 

The man sucked in a breath, then reached out. His touch was light, which was the only thing that stopped me from pulling my hands away. Why was he doing this?

"This is what working does for you?" 

I shook my head. "That's what working every hour of the day does to me," I corrected. "I suspect a lighter workload and some time off to heal would avoid it." 

"The Duchess does this to you?" 

I nod. 

"And she orders you to men's beds?" 

"Oh, no. This is the first time she's done that, and I think it's just because it's the Prince. Not that it makes that any better. He doesn't deserve having spies forced on him." 

"How do you know that if you've never heard anything good about him?" 

I shrugged. "I've also never heard anything bad about him. And bad gossip always travels faster." 

He laughed. "You have a point there." 

A bell rang within the house, startling me into focus. I pulled my hands out of his, missing their touch almost instantly. I pushed the longing for more away. I shouldn't forget my place simply because a man showed me kindness. That was a good way to end up on the wrong side of everyone. 

"I have to get going," I said. "That was the dinner bell." 

He nodded. "I'll have to as well." 

"Will you..." I trailed off, not wanting to voice the question on the tip of my tongue. 

"Will I?" he prompted. 

"Will you be at the servants’ dinner?" I asked. 

A sad look crossed his eyes. "Unfortunately, I must dine with the Duchess." 

"But only the Prince is dining with her." Even as I said the words, understanding dawned on me. He was the Prince. "I...I'm so sorry, Your Highness, I didn't realise..." 

"It's all right," he assured me. 

I dipped into the deepest curtsy I could manage. "But I've been addressing you without using your title." And complaining about my station in life. I'd messed this up more badly than I could have ever imagined possible. 

"Please, I'm not offended," the Prince said. "You admitted to not knowing anything about me, I should have been fair and told you then." 

I straightened my back, the urge to ask him why he hadn't revealed his identity on the tip of my tongue. 

"Because you looked so peaceful out here, and I didn't want to scare you away with who I was." 

"How..." 

He chuckled. "It was written all over your face," he responded.

"I should have recognised you, Your Highness." I hated grovelling, but for the Prince, I'd do it. 

He grimaced. "Please don't call me that. Everyone else does, I have enough of it from them." 

My brows knitted together in confusion, and I began to fiddle with the soft silk of my dress. "What would you like me to call you?" I asked, biting back the urge to call him an even more flowery name to get my point across. 

"In public, Your Highness is fine," he admitted with a disgusted look. "But if we're alone, why don't you call me Raynor?" 

I gasped. "By your name?" 

"Whyever not?" 

"It's not proper," I responded. 

"Neither is engaging a lady in conversation without revealing my identity," he pointed out. "Yet I did it all the same. And I owe you a debt. Now I know I should watch myself around all of the ladies in the house save one." 

"The Duchess?" I guessed. 

A smirk lifted the left side of his mouth. "You," he pointed out. 

"Oh." 

"Would you be so kind as to let me know your name?" 

My eyes widened. How had I not thought to introduce myself before now? "Tanwyn," I answered. 

"A noble name." 

"I don't know," I admitted. "I came here when I was barely old enough to remember everything." 

"My Father's former Chief Advisor had a daughter named Tanwyn. She must be about your age now. Did you know Duke Floren?" 

I shook my head. "The only member of the nobility I've ever met is the Duchess."
