In Esther 8:4 it says
וַיּ֤וֹשֶׁט הַמֶּ֙לֶךְ֙ לְאֶסְתֵּ֔ר אֵ֖ת שַׁרְבִ֣ט הַזָּהָ֑ב וַתָּ֣קָם אֶסְתֵּ֔ר וַֽתַּעֲמֹ֖ד לִפְנֵ֥י הַמֶּֽלֶךְ׃
The king extended the golden scepter to Esther, and Esther arose and stood before the king.
Earlier (4:11) we are told that extending the scepter showed that a person who had not been called to the king would be allowed to live. Does this imply that after the incident with Haman the king again did not call for Esther for some period of time and that she had to again risk her life to speak to him unbidden? If not, what is the reason for this second episode where the king extends his scepter to Esther?
