Sanaryelle

(OOC: *cackles triumphantly*)

Iselli-

I gave a thin smile. "That may be so," I admitted, "but now's not the time for quarrelling. There are larger things at stake."

Fishy Biscuits

(OOC: Damn you, Snaa...)

~Idriel~

'I know,' I said. 'We don't argue when we're discussing that. It's just when we start talking about my love life.'

Sanaryelle

(OOC: Um... *shuffles feet* Who is this Snaa that you speak of?)

Iselli-

"We need everyone to be at their best when we make our move," I said levelly. "And Cariel will not be at her best if she's moping, and you will not be at your best if you're angry with her."

Fishy Biscuits

(OOC: *narrows eyes* You know full well who it is.)

~Idriel~

'Fine,' I sighed. 'I'll apologise when she comes back in here.'

Sanaryelle

(OOC: Um... What? *innocent!grin*)

Iselli-

I nodded. "And try to relax tonight. Remember, tomorrow you will have your audience with the King."

Fishy Biscuits

(OOC: *sigh* You know you can't do 'innocent'...)

~Idriel~

'Will that be in the morning, or the afternoon?' I asked.

Sanaryelle

(OOC: Dammit... *puts on mask*)

Iselli-

"I don't know," I admitted. "Could be either. It depends on... well, a lot of things."

7/15/2011 #2,677
Fishy Biscuits

(OOC: That's so much better! ^_^)

~Idriel~

'On what?' I asked. Evidently, I couldn't afford to sleep in tomorrow, just in case.

7/15/2011 #2,678
Sanaryelle

Iselli-

I sighed. "Many things. It depends on when some of Belisaere's elite will report your presence to the King, and who decides to report, and how the message is conveyed, and whether the King is... you know what? It just depends on a lot."

Fishy Biscuits

~Idriel~

'Right,' I said. 'I guess I'll just have to be prepared. But I can't make it look like I'm expecting it, can I. Otherwise they might guess that someone's told me.'

7/15/2011 #2,680
Sanaryelle

Iselli-

"That is true," I admitted. "And... the King will not just ask you about the Clayr. He'll ask about other things too. Just - try not to say or do anything that will get you imprisoned. That would just complicate things."

7/15/2011 #2,681
Fishy Biscuits

~Idriel~

'I should probably just keep my mouth shut, then,' I said wryly, 'seeing as the King's having people arrested just because he doesn't like them. He might not even bother to find an excuse.'

7/15/2011 #2,682
Sanaryelle

Iselli-

"Your station does protect you somewhat," I said.

There was a soft knock on the door adjoining Cariel's room.

7/15/2011 #2,683
Fishy Biscuits

~Idriel~

I glanced at the door and sighed. 'You can come in, Cariel,' I called, trying not to grit my teeth.

7/15/2011 #2,684
Sanaryelle

Iselli-

The door opened, and Cariel poked her head in. "Did you want me to do your hair tonight?" she asked. Oh yes - she'd been moping.

7/15/2011 #2,685
Fishy Biscuits

~Idriel~

'Yes,' I said, rather shortly. Then I remembered what Iselli had said, and added, 'Please.'

7/15/2011 #2,686
Sanaryelle

Iselli-

Cariel blinked, then nodded. I stifled a sigh; it was like dealing with two feuding children. "Well... let me know when you need me," said Cariel in a small voice. I gave Idriel a significant glance; she had to do better than that.

7/15/2011 #2,687
Fishy Biscuits

(OOC: 'it was like dealing with two feuding children' Yes it is! ^_^)

~Idriel~

I sighed rather loudly, then glanced at Cariel. 'I'm sorry about earlier,' I said, though it did sound rather too much like I was reciting it, rather than actually meaning it.

7/15/2011 #2,688
Sanaryelle

Iselli-

Cariel finally glanced at Idriel. "Oh. Well - all right, then," she said woodenly.

I very nearly rolled my eyes; this wasn't the reconciliation I'd been hoping for.

7/15/2011 #2,689
Fishy Biscuits

~Idriel~

'Iselli wants to talk to you about things,' I added, glancing at the Clayr.

7/15/2011 #2,690
Sanaryelle

Iselli-

I gave a small sigh. If this was as far as either of them were willing to go, then I supposed I'd have to settle for it. "Is the room secure?" I asked.

Cariel and Idriel cast silencing spells on the walls, floor, ceiling, and window.

"Good." I gave a short nod, and turned to Cariel. "I need you to see the Vice Captain today." Cariel started, and a slight flush spread over her pale cheeks. I stifled a grin.

7/16/2011 #2,691
Fishy Biscuits

~Idriel~

I watched Cariel and my eyes widened slightly when I saw her blush. Did she...?

7/16/2011 #2,692
Sanaryelle

Cariel-

My face was burning. Charter, they didn't see it, did they?

"I need you to bring him a message," said Iselli, and I tried to listen. "Tell him that I will be summoned to the King three days from now. Yourself and the Abhorsen will accompany me to the throne room. Ask the Vice Captain to be there to personally escort us to the King - and to also have men loyal to him with us, and at the Palace Gates. Do you understand?"

I nodded. Only three days? Charter... "Is that all that I am to tell Ae- the Vice Captain?" I asked, feeling my face grow even warmer.

The Clayr nodded. "That is all."

7/16/2011 #2,693
Fishy Biscuits

~Idriel~

Cariel had been getting gradually redder as she and Iselli had been talking, and I smirked. Charter, she liked Aedyn!

7/16/2011 #2,694
Sanaryelle

Iselli-

I stood. "It would be best if we did not openly speak to each other until three days from now," I said. "Now if you excuse me, I have some business in the city." I nodded to them both, and left the room.

Ever since the visions had started, Clayr had been entering Belisaere, some disguised, some on 'business'. I had to start spreading the word - the very day, and the very hour, that we were to strike.

7/16/2011 #2,695
Fishy Biscuits

~Idriel~

After Iselli had left, I looked back at Cariel. She was still a bit red. I smirked even more and looked at her pointedly.

7/16/2011 #2,696
Sanaryelle

Cariel-

I noticed the way that Idriel was looking at me. "What?" I murmured, playing with a strand of my hair.

7/16/2011 #2,697
Fishy Biscuits

~Idriel~

'You do know that he's already got a girlfriend, don't you?' I asked.

7/16/2011 #2,698
Sanaryelle

Cariel-

I briefly considered asking Idriel what she was talking about - but there would be no point. "I know," I said, looking at the floor.

7/16/2011 #2,699
Fishy Biscuits

~Idriel~

I shrugged and tried not to look too amused. 'Bad luck.'
