When Nimueh returned to the brothel, Uther was there waiting impatiently for her.
"Uther, what are you doing here? It's a little early for you to be visiting. Having a bad day?" Nimueh hung up her cloak on a peg by the door.
"I've come to talk to you of my proposal. Have you given it any thought?" Uther asked.
"Yes. I think an arrangement can be made but it will cost." Nimueh faced him.
"What will it cost me?" Uther looked annoyed.
"One thousand gold sovereigns and a good husband for Vivienne." Nimueh paused to let that sink in. "In hand before you proceed."
"I was thinking about killing her after the child is born but marrying her off to some sod will work as well. Now let's talk about that gold."
"Nothing to talk about. You have my terms and they are not negotiable." Nimueh told him. "You pay the price or there are no exclusive rights."
Uther glared at her. "I will be back tomorrow with the gold. Tell Vivienne to be ready."
"And the husband?" Nimueh asked.
"Golois will take her on. He has already volunteered. She will be moved to the castle until she produces the child. For her sake, I hope she does it soon. I may kill her if I don't get what I want quickly. Have her ready to go as soon as I return. I will pay you and she will be married tomorrow." Uther walked out and slammed the door.
"Did you hear that?" Nimueh turned to the stairs.
Vivienne came down and looked at Nim. "I did."
