“Would you be willing to meet with him once more?” the general asked Orlov. Orlov sat back for a second, a little put off at the request. If the man wasn’t dying, then was there a reason to be granting him the privilege of speaking with a man of a far superior position than himself? “Sir?” Orlov asked.
“It is a matter of some urgency, Prince Orlov, between allies, that we find out what is wrong with Fane Anson,” the general explained.
“I understand that every troop member is of importance to the cause, but is he of that much importance that I must demean myself to dealing with subordinates?” Orlov protested.
The general regarded him for only a second before waving over an attendant to see Orlov out. “More than you think, my boy,” the general added as Orlov found himself being dismissed from the room.
