September is a quiet month at home for a nation as small as Liechtenstein. No elections, no particular public events, nothing major for which her boss might need her presence. The summer hikers have gone home; the winter skiers won't arrive for a few months yet. Most of Europe is back at work after the easier days of August. And as nearly all of her friends and family have far busier schedules than she does, she doesn't feel a hint of guilt for slipping away for a quiet hour or two at the bar.

Which is not to say that she doesn't keep occupied with work. In her sewing basket are several of her socks and stockings that need either darning or reinforcing. She has an armchair a slight distance from the fire, and with her sewing and a light snack of a sliced apple and tea, she almost seems to radiate a sense of industrious domesticity amidst the bustle of the bar.

(She may be keeping an eye out for someone. It's hard to tell, because at the moment she seems to be wholly occupied in repairing a worn-down heel.)

From: [personal profile] pro_patria_mortuus
A young Frenchman -- and he is unmistakeably that, to a nation's senses, even without the tricolor cockade pinned to his distinctly 19th century lapel -- has just risen from his table, collection of newspapers in hand. He returns them to Bar and collects another stack. At his table, an empty coffee cup keeps company with the neglected remnant of a small loaf of bread.

He has not looked over at the young woman by the fire, save for a few glances at the entire room. Industrious feminine domesticity is not among his interests. As such, she has not caught his attention.
