* Emperor Harald's Lady Chief Secretary, Lady Wenche Gulbrandsdottir, has arranged the Sparrow Negotiation Room in the Imperial Country Club as venue for the Wedding Contract negotiations between Empress Sigrid, represented by Crown Princess Aoife, and Emperor Harald who is represented by Viking Prince Edgard. The Wedding Contract negotiations will be presided over by Aldin Vanadisarson Isammaður.

 

Lady Wenche is currently awaiting the arrival of the participants in the Wedding Contract negotiations. *

A brisk morning, it was, and Aldin travelled down from from the Hurmu High Commission, where he had stayed with Commissioner Revynja, a new friend of his, to the Imperial Country Club. This was Aldin's first mission in the Stormarker state, and he was prepared to do it as well as perfectly possible.

 

He arrived at the reception of the Country Club.

 

“Good morning” he said,

 

“What a strange attire you have, sir! A bit out of place, perhaps!” the receptionist exlaimed, and Aldin felt a bit put off. He looked at the receptionist without saying anything, and the receptionist just said, “Oh, and good morning.”

 

“Yes, indeed” Aldin answered without really knowing what to say. “I am here to meet Wenche Gulbrandsdottir, Secretary to the Emperor.” He thought that he should not really say why he was there considering the secrecy of negotiations.

 

“Ah”, the receptionist just added, “and you are?”

 

“Aldin Vanadisarson.” Aldin decided he should use his matrinymic, it being more commonly used in Haraldsborg than his tribal name.

 

“Who?”

 

“Aldin Vanadisarson.”

 

“Let me see...” The receptionist, a boyish-looking man of some five years more than Aldin, in a suit a size too small for him, walked clumsily towards one of the doors.

 

Aldin waited impatiently. Was this going to take all day?

 

Finally the receptionist came back.

 

“I'm sorry, Mister, but the Secretary is busy preparing for an important meeting, you see, and we wouldn't like to disturb here. She has a.... let me see... a slot available on Thursday. Shall I make an appointment for then?”

 

“Perhaps not” Aldin answered and his face showed a hint of a smile.

 

“No? Then I'm sorry, as I told you, she is very busy and she's expecting a Senator from Hurmu any minute now. You might know him, you are from Hurmu? I'm sure I recognize that dialect!”

* Lady Aoife, escorted by a couple of Valkyries, arrives at the reception of the Imperial Country Club. She is dressed in a gorgeous but very comfortable green skirt suit set. Lady Aoife is also wearing diamond earrings and a diamond brooch.

 

She greets her fellow Senator Aldin Vanadisarson Isammaður warmly by giving him a hug and kiss on his forehead causing the receptionist to faint. Lady Aoife leaves the receptionist in the care of her Valkyries, takes Senator Aldin by the hand and leads him to the Sparrow Negotiation Room. *

Edgard arrives with his brother the Dauphin. They're both dressed in comfortable business suits. As usual, the Dauphin is wearing his favorite Aviators, despite the fact that he's indoors.

Good afternoon, my Ladies and Gentlemen. Welcome to the Imperial Country Club. Now that we've exchanged pleasantries and greetings, let the negotiations begin.

 

Our first task is to decide what the negotiations will include.

 

Prenuptial agreement

Contract of marriage

Gifts from the Emperor to the Empress ("Dowry")

Gifts from the Empress to the Emperor

 

Anything else you can think of?

I would like to propose that Empress Sigrid would remain a Member of the House of Ettlingar Freyu in the event of divorce or demise of the Emperor and would also be allowed to continue to live in the Sigrún Tower of the Imperial Hall of Haraldsborg. This would render most other prenuptial provisions redundant.

 

Is that acceptable to you, Viking Prince Edgard?

This is very acceptable to me.

 

Emperor Harald offers Empress Sigrid as Wedding Gift a pet bear who has been trained as an acrobat and a jongleur. The bear can also play several musical instruments. He will also create an Imperial Institution to be known as the Valkyrie Institute. The purpose of that Imperial Institute is the educated the public about Valkyries and train women who like to become Valkyries.

The gifts are gracefully accepted.

 

Empress Sigrid offers Emperor Harald an ancient sword that has been passed down for countless generations within her clan.

 

I would like to propose that Emperor Harald and Empress Sigrid pledge to be faithful to each other. Engaging into physical love encounters with Norse gods to foster and maintain relationships with the Norse gods shall not be regarded as unfaithfulness.
