...I do not think they will sing to me

Henh. So Gou Jian and Fu Chai approach the Moment of Truth. Will they fall upon each other in a paroxysm of fury and lust and overwhelming need to possess? Five years ago they might have. Right now I can't even imagine how that mindset works. No, they'll probably have a passionate discussion about the strategy needed to bring the northern states to their knees, holding hands and gazing raptly into each other's eyes while talking troop numbers and forges for weaponry and a slightly more efficient armour for the soldiers of Yue. 'We're in love! Together we will conquer the world! Who has time for sex!'

Maybe hormone replacements might be a good idea after all.
