King Francis would greet the Empress. Then he would reply.

"Ah, yes. I just came back from touring several farms, we are funding efforts into building multi-leveled vertical greenhouses and other advanced farming methods to make the most out of what farmland we have. And to have a prosperous nation? Simply just.. Let people release their energy on the weekends and make them work as hard as possible during the weekdays. That's how we can afford all of what we do. That's why everybody sees us as a place to rave away your stresses."

Sophia would interject.

"Francis has a pretty odd way of having fun. Even for a man in his fifties, he still goes to the warehouses." Francis would reply, "Warehouses only. The real classics." Both of them would chuckle..

"Anyways, we have a present for you, your highness." Francis would show the Empress a tall, slim box wrapped in royal wrappings.

Valeria chuckles after hearing Queen Sophia interject. 'Well, it's a good thing that you have an "odd" hobby. Luckily not everyone is the same, otherwise it would be such a boring world. I thank you for your wise words about pursuing happiness and prosperity, and I similarly thank you for your very nice gift. Now, I'd be remiss if I were not to ask for any fascinating stories about this. Surely, there is something particularly interesting to be said, and if you would be so kind, I would absolutely love to hear it.
