Summary: The central episode of "Wages" from Charles' perspective.

I've had this in the in-progress folder for forever, so I finally decided to write the last three paragraphs and post it. Almost all of the dialogue is [ profile] solvent's; all of Charles' wool-gathering and angst in faux-Austen diction is mine. As with all Regency romances, take a large meta-warning for near-total disregard of the inequities that structure the upper-class lifestyle of the period. This was largely an exercise in trying to understand the workings of the original fic by writing out Charles' perspective. He doesn't want to think about just how manipulative he is, unsurprisingly.
