I am in Rome with Alexander and Selene, the orphaned children of Marc Anthony and Cleopatra. We have just returned from an execution and I am horrified. As we are going to the Ludi Romani, we are discussing Selene’s sketches for a home for the foundlings (the homeless children). I like that Selene is so caring and we are well on our way to becoming fast friends… if only Julia would go away and allow Marcellus to follow his heart which at this time, I am believing really must belong to Selene.
