His Bow to Me

from Double Star (1956) by Robert A. HeinleinRating: 2.4     (17 ratings)

 
His bow to me must have been calculated on a slide rule; it suggested that I was about to be Supreme Minister but was not quite there yet, that I was his senior but nevertheless a civilian -- then subtract five degrees for the fact that he wore the Emperor's aiguillette on his right shoulder.
