Are you really him? The Lio… Sir Rhyder?”

Rhyder straightened up from where he had been examining the array of training swords, and Daymon could have kicked himself. What was he saying, he already knew this was Rhyder—and Rhyder, judging from the slight quirk of his mouth, knew that too. Still, the man was polite enough not to say anything to embarrass Daymon and made a bow. “At your service, Your Highness. But if it please you, I am no Sir. Just Rhyder will suffice.”

Oh. Yes. Of course, I knew that. I just….” Daymon trailed off, all of his practiced conversations and smooth, courtly language failing him.

When it became apparent that Daymon was lost for words, Rhyder prompted him, as though there had been no awkward pause. “And you are Prince Daymon. It’s a pleasure to finally meet you, Your Highness. To what do I owe the honor?”

I… um, that is. I always wanted to meet you! Ever since I heard the stories, you know, the ones about… and there are so many of them! Is it true you bested Kharsan the Great in single combat? And that you tamed a Rhodan horse when you were only twelve?” With an effort, Daymon stopped before he could embarrass himself further.

To his credit, Rhyder did not laugh at his babbling. “Yes and yes,” he replied easily, as though this was the kind of conversation he had every day—which, for all Daymon knew, he did. “I did have some help with that second one, however. And if truth be told, I’ve wanted to meet you for some time now as well.”

Me?” Daymon squeaked.

Indeed. Your Highness must be aware that if there are plenty of stories about me, there are many more surrounding you.”
