We need a friend at the French Embassy. Mauvissiere and the Spanish Ambassador abuse our hospitality and plot against us. You're well placed Bruno. Will you be our spy?
I may not be a lion but I am a lion's cub. And I have a lion's heart. Men fight wars, women win them. I have need of your talents Bruno.
I am your servant Your Highness.
Will you be our eyes and ears against the French Ambassador who plots against us night and day?
Let me but write and publish my books and I will do as you command.
