Fishy Biscuits

~Aedyn~

'But you do get Royal visits, Majesty,' I pointed out with a grin. 'And if you're going to Yanyl, I'm going to accompany you.'

Elandri-

"And have a drink with the Wallmakers," I said, grinning.

"Can we come too, Majesty?" asked Guyon.

I smiled. "Well, if you're part of my guard at the time..."

~Aedyn~

'That means 'yes', then,' I said, grinning. 'I tend to visit at least once a year, if I can - for one of my parents' birthdays, or my brother's. I can't often make all three, though.'

Elandri-

"And I'd like to see my parents," I said. They hadn't been able to come out for my coronation. I hadn't seen them since I'd left for the Glacier.

~Aedyn~

'Let's hope that everything settles down quickly, so we can go on this visit,' I said, smiling.

Elandri-

I nodded and leaned on the railing, looking out over the river and feeling the wind on my face.

Alesia steered us around a corner, and ahead - quite far ahead - I could just make out a colossal bridge spanning the river in the distance.

~Aedyn~

'Woah,' said Guyon, letting out a low whistle. 'Even from here, it looks huge.'

Elandri-

"Good beds tonight, everyone," said Ceris cheerfully.

"And a large meal," Milon added hopefully.

~Aedyn~

'Whatever you order, princess,' said Sorsha with a grin.

Elandri-

"Quiet, witch," Milon shot back.

"Hey," said Ysmay, stepping between them. "Play nice."

~Aedyn~

Milon gave Ysmay a sarcastic bow. 'Yes, ma'am.'

Guyon rolled his eyes. 'You lot are such children...'

Elandri-

"And the Captain's the father," Allin laughed.

"I supposed Her Majesty is the mother?" said Ceris, raising her eyebrows.

~Aedyn~

I raised one eyebrow in mock-despair. 'If you're all my children, you're all disowned,' I said dryly.

Sanaryelle

Elandri-

"Straight to the orphanage for you," I added sternly.

The guards all whined in protest, which made them all sound even more like children.

9/2/2011 #794
Fishy Biscuits

~Aedyn~

I glanced at the Queen. 'Maybe we should make them go to bed without dinner tonight.'

Sanaryelle

Elandri-

"Especially if they don't clean up this ship," I said gravely.

9/2/2011 #796

~Aedyn~

'And cook us a nice lunch,' I added, nodding.

Sanaryelle

Elandri-

"Neal?" Sorsha shouted. "Caught anything yet?"

There was a pause.

"Another saddle," Neal answered eventually.

"Oh, for Charter's sake," Ceris muttered, and walked over to the back of the boat.

9/2/2011 #798
Fishy Biscuits

~Aedyn~

'Who's been throwing saddles in the bloody river?' muttered Guyon.

9/2/2011 #799
Sanaryelle

Elandri-

"Maybe he keeps catching the same saddle," Ysmay suggested.

"I wonder how saddle tastes..." said Milon.

Sorsha snorted. "Maybe if we boil it long enough."

"I believe your Captain requested a nice lunch," I pointed out.

~Aedyn~

'I most certainly did,' I agreed. 'You're serving the Queen here, remember. Only the finest foods allowed.'

9/2/2011 #801
Sanaryelle

Elandri-

"The finest boiled saddle in all the Kingdom," Sorsha muttered.

Neal and Ceris reappeared, the latter holding up a string of trout.

9/2/2011 #802
Fishy Biscuits

~Aedyn~

'That's much better,' I said. 'Something edible.'

Ceris held the trout up for Milon to see. 'This good enough for you, princess?'

Sanaryelle

Elandri-

Milon rolled his eyes, and the other guards laughed as they set about gutting the fish and preparing the meal. I smiled, and looked back towards High Bridge. I hoped we wouldn't run into any trouble up there.

9/2/2011 #804
Fishy Biscuits

~Aedyn~

This time, I helped with the cooking. I wasn't too bad at preparing fish, though I really hated the smell.

9/2/2011 #805
Sanaryelle

Elandri-

When the meal was ready, I went to sit on my usual barrel, and accepted a plate from Ceris. I listened to the guards' conversation and made the odd comment, but my mind was always on High Bridge - and beyond, Gardil.

9/2/2011 #806
Fishy Biscuits

~Aedyn~

I noticed that the Queen was being rather quiet, and as the other guards were cleaning the plates, I went over to her. 'Are you all right, Majesty?' I asked, lowering my voice.

9/2/2011 #807
Sanaryelle

Elandri-

I looked up as Aedyn took a seat next to me, and nodded. "Just - thinking," I said.

9/2/2011 #808
Fishy Biscuits

~Aedyn~

'About the rest of this journey?' I guessed.

9/2/2011 #809
Sanaryelle

Elandri-

"Yes," I said. It wouldn't do any good to deny it. "Do you anticipate any problems this evening?"
