It was a slow finish, then, a delicate cream dessert -- atevi had only a dim compunction about animals kept for milk, though they would not tolerate animals kept for slaughter. But they had gotten the notion of cream cheese from Mospheira, and this was seasonal fresh fruit, one of Bindanda's specialties, with a nut topping.
How Bindanda had gotten the fruit up here, on the other hand, must involve high crimes and bribery.
"Very fine," Jase said. "Where did Danda-ji get this?"
"I don't think we want to know," Bren said, and called out the chef to compliment him -- both of them praised the dessert, which pleased Bindanda exceedingly. But they had not a word from Bindanda on his sources, so they were assuredly not official.
