Pavel suffered from many long days. Usually due to work, sometimes due to familial obligations, and other times due to social events. Today had been a little bit of everything.
The day had started off slowly. A few work calls, a quick visit to the office, some papers to be signed... Then a long ride back home. Most streets around the new cathedral had unfortunately been blocked off, which caused a traffic jam. He should've factored in the time it would've taken to get home, but he had miscalculated just how popular the event would turn out to be.
Nonetheless, Pavel arrived just in time to accompany his wife and child to the sermon in the Nijni district. Yeva had voiced her concerns about subjecting Isaak to the violence of a public execution the evening before and Pavel had thankfully agreed it was in bad taste. In order to avoid possible public scrutiny, he had chosen to remain at the plaza with his in-laws, as Yeva excused herself.
After the inauguration, he popped into his usual gentlemen's club to discuss his latest business ventures whilst smoking a few exquisite cigars, then returned home to entertain his in-laws for tea. He was grateful to learn that the day had been equally long for them, which meant a swift goodbye rather than long discussions in the parlor.
But no rest for the wicked, for there was one more thing to cross off his agenda: a conversation with Yeva about their son.
