Notes: Takes place in 1104 AW. The king mentioned in this piece is Jean XI. His son, Henri, and his daughter in law, Therese, have just given birth to the heir to the Mondian throne thus him calling for the wine from Cadomiselle. Cadomisellian wine is very highly praised.

Jean Michele was talking with some of his associates from the capital.

“The King is celebrating the birth of his grandson. He asked specifically for Cadomisellian wine. How much can you send?” The man said.

Jean Michele smiled. “As much as His Majesty wants, just tell me when it needs to be there and-“

“Papa!” Came his daughter’s voice.

The door opened and Anna ran inside of her father’s study. She ran up to him.

“Papa, Marie is being mean to me and-“

“Anna, I am in a business meeting,” Jean Michele said softly but sternly nonetheless.

Anna stopped and looked around. She hadn’t noticed the other two men.

“Oh I’m sorry. Excuse me sieurs,” Anna said curtseying.

Jean Michele ruffled his daughter’s wild brown hair.

“I’ll talk to you later, Anna.”

She nodded before stepping back. She glanced at the two men before throwing them a smile.
They laughed.

“Your daughter is quite the charmer,” One of them said.

Jean Michele laughed. “She’s just a little tawpie for now. But I fear she’ll be the death of me.”

The men joined it with his laughter.

“So how much wine does His Majesty need?”

I did not know that! I thought I was supposed to capitalize it if the sentenced ended. But this is really helpful to know. Also about the commas, we have a love/hate relationship. I never know when I'm supposed to use one and I've been known to insert them in random places. XD
