From saga novel Throne Price by Lynda Williams.
"Princess Luthan Dem H'Us," Zind said in mock grandeur. "Do you think you can cope with a Nersal?"
"Lay off. She's a friend of Amel's," said Bal.
"Oh, well then, there's nothing we can tell her!" Zind laughed.
"Not that sort of friend!" Luthan said, alarmed.
"Maybe you do need help, after all," Zind teased with mock gravity, "If you've passed up that opportunity."
Dem'Vrellish women mock a young but proud Princess Luthan over her inexperience regarding sex, inspiring an equally young and inexperienced Erien to come to her defense.
