    Summary

    Thomas has long seen himself as an object against which Henry's whims may crash and break, and into which his king's desires may be absorbed. It's much easier than pretending to have morals of his own. For many years he has ruthlessly quelled any vestige of his youthful fire, so as not to betray a shred of disagreement. Now he doubts he can find those embers again, even to stoke them for the king's amusement. Better to be the canvas for the paint; better to be the pleasant smile holding fast against mercurial rage.

    Summary

    Becket permits himself a small smile and tries not to squint against the sunlight that is blinding him. ‘I’d be… honoured if my prince would allow me – as his Chancellor – to take some trifling matters off his mind.’

    ‘Ah, I see,’ Henry says, letting his chin drop onto his chest. ‘You’re still looking for your honour, that slippery quality which, I might add, so few Normans possess.’ Another glance at Becket. ‘Have you found a way to fill that void yet?’
