“Maybe later,” Sinder muttered, clearly on edge. “Do you have any experience handling a roomful of people who are used to getting their own way. As in… always.”

Jacques almost laughed.

Argent said, “Smythe generally gets his own way. Your cabal is outmatched.”

Sinder looked skeptical.

What else could he say? “Yes, my lord.”

  2. This is when actions (and some well-chosen words) mean more than anything else. Argent knows how to show his trust and he’s showing it manifold for Jacques here!!
