De Personis: Truculentus Lollium adiuvat

Truculentus Lollium adiuvat – Pars Prīma

This story was co-created by Latin Family member Andrew B. in March 2017.  In story-sequence, it occurs right after the Fabella Adstructa in Lectiō V.

Lectionis V Semis Fabula Longa I

patrōnus benignus et līberālis

tertia hōra diēī adest. omnēs clientēs ē domō Valeriī iam ēxeunt.  clientēs per viās urbis ad cēnācula et domōs reveniunt.  Lollius, cliēns Valeriī, laetus sportulam fert.  “ego gaudeō et laetor,” sēcum putat Lollius, “quod Valerius, patrōnus meus, est benignus et līberālis.  nōnne enim Valerius, patrōnus meus, lūdi`magistrō persuādet ut fīlium meum in lūdō accipiat? et nōnne Valerius ipse pecūniam praebet?  ego grātiās maximās agō, quod patrōnus est benignus et līberālis.”

Lectionis V Semis Fabula Longa II

Caelius epistulam legit

in clīvō montis Vesuviī est vīlla Caeliī.  Milphiō ad vīllam prōgreditur et iānuam vīllae pulsat.  Nestōr, servus Caeliī, iānuam aperit et epistulam Valeriī accipit.  tum Nestōr per vīllam ad tablīnum Caeliī ambulat.  “mī domine,” inquit Nestōr, “ecce epistula Valeriī, marītī sorōris tuae.” Caelius “ēhem, ego epistulam Valeriī hodiē haud exspectō!” sēcum susurrat.  “cūr Valerius epistulam hodiē mittit?”  Caelius epistulam accipit et Nestōrem dīmittit.  Caelius anxius epistulam aperit et tacitā vōce legit.

Lectionis Tertiae Fabella Adstructa II

This story was inspired by the “Thursday afternoon Latin Fluency group” (Abby and August) in Spring 2017.  They wanted to know why Cnaeus was fessus et īrātus and what sorts of somnia horrenda he keeps having.
