Lunch came to an end. Carolina was quite excited as she was about to unveil her "surprise"..."As a token of good will and in order to demonstrate the esteem Derecta has for the United kingdom, let me present you with these gifts." she said. "These are the 'Three Graces', a statue dating back to the Greek domination period in Derecta." "This is the 'Battle of Mount Medor' by J.Tennyson. It represents one of the battles between the two aspiring royal families, the Targans and the Athedes, that fought for the throne in the 17th century.""And this is a set of new official cars for your government to use, straight out of a Theodidon factory."
"Paul, you will always have a home in Derecta. You and Miss Kligenberg have been wonderful guests! I'm glad you've liked all the events we had set up for today, and I'm looking forward to having that 'formal' summit." said Carolina happily. "I would love to visit Inquista sometime after the elections... If it's possible. Anyway, have a nice trip back home. I have a helicopter ready for you so you don't get stuck in the jam on your way to Dikaíoma International."It was time to go back to the palace. Carolina was exhausted and she knew the next couple of days were going to be hectic. the first debate was to be aired on "O", the biggest private channel in Derecta and EVERYONE would be watching it. It had certainly been a nice day in Dikaíoma....
