‘ salve , magnus ! ’ arms spread , he strides to the great man - back from the east and surprisingly having dismissed his army. ( an intelligent move - but will the senate be willing to ratify his laws ? )
a smile , he EMBRACES pompey as if he were an old friend , hand resting on his shoulder. ‘ well ! first of all i must congratulate you with your many victories , and second - i heard you have divorced ? ’ and , admittedly , he may have had a hand in the whole affair. needless to say , the metelli are furious , magnus has been turned down by cato and the optimates & the ratifying of his laws may have gotten a thousand times more difficult. in short , a perfect opportunity.
he runs tongue over lips - ‘ already considered remarriage ? or enjoying your freedom , hm ? ’ * @manemxs
