Their first meeting

This snippet is from The Ancient where we meet up with Edgar; he spies Alasdair at a long ago party in Hollywoodland:

There he is, standing alone with a drink in his hand.  It wouldn’t do to be seen with just anybody. It’s best to work the room solo in case someone interesting shows up, but when he sees Mr. Connery, he knows that he isn’t just anybody.  He stares as the man stands separate from the hangers on, gently deflecting unwanted attention. He’s exotic and mysterious with that kilt and that braid. Edgar listens to the whispers about him that he’s an extremely wealthy businessman who wishes to invest in the movies, and he’s looking for a rising star.  Sleep his way in? There won’t be any sleeping if he can help it.
