Success

"I confess, you intrigue me."

You wait. Sure enough, a note arrives a few days later. In spiked, spare handwriting, he begs leave to call upon you one afternoon. Tucked into the envelope is a sizeable chunk of amber. It's almost the same shade as his eyes.


Failure

Can one be too diffident?

You take no action. And he takes no action. You spend several evenings not writing to him, and he in turn occupies himself by not calling on you. Some weeks pass.
