Chapter 14 is a quiet walk through the birthday party.

Oliver agonises over his job offer. Cordelia wonders what he'll decide.

And along the way we see Sergyaran society - busy, happy, tolerant
(fairly, at least), with a lot of Nexus influence. Everything is busy and
booming - education, construction, agriculture. They're frantically
trying to do centuries of work and research in a few decades.

But this is a happy society, growing fast, where people can live good
lives. And this is the world that Aral and Cordelia have guided for so
long. Sort of Barrayar Mark II. They did their best with Barrayar,
despite so many restrictions and problems. Then their reward was to
do it all again, almost from scratch, on Sergyar.

And they've done a pretty good job.
