It’s Weekend Writing Warriors time again. This is my submission.
These are the next few lines to one of my (as yet untitled) works in progress. We pick the story up a few paragraphs later. Her performance over, Orida meets the dignitaries at the reception.

“Citizen Orida.” He brushed his thin colourless lips across the top of her hand, as was his custom. Had she not been introduced, she would never have thought the slight, nondescript man could be Grantor Ulvelec, the head of an empire that spanned half of the worlds of the known universe. His worth, in financial terms, was so great that a new word had been created to describe the number.
“Your execution was… flawless,” he paused, still holding her hand. “Such presence and musicality. You truly opened our souls to the universe.”
Her performance that night had been one of her better renditions of the Pleiades Prelude. She smiled, “Such high praise from such an accomplished man. My thanks Citizen Grantor, I am honoured to have been invited to perform at such an auspicious occasion.”
