Excerpt from the Inquisition

And you slept with him?
You gave him the final vote for the award?
You knew of course this was against the rules?
Yes, but we were married later
It was against the rules, no?
And did he become famous?
Not really
Famous like you
Was his reputation enhanced?
For awhile
Yes or no?
Actually no
You are sure of that?
