A street Urchin arrives at Lady Victoria's domicile with a sealed letter for her. He refuses to hand the etter to anyone but the Lady herself, and stands at the entrance, refusing to leave until she arrives.

Having just finished her meeting with Laurent, Victoria is advised that a message is waiting to be delivered to her personally. "The urchin won't hand it over," grumbles the guard "He just stands there with his hands on his hips insisting that he will give it to you and only you, Your Grace".

"Well, take me to his messenger then and let us see what he has for me." Victoria stands and walks out of her solarium to the front area where the street urchin is waiting. Stepping before the child, she says "I understand you have a message for me? May I see it?" as she holds out her hand.

Bowing as she approaches, the urchin smiles at Victori, "Yes your grace, I was given a gold to deliver this, with instructions it was to be delivered to you and you alone, and was told another awaited me if I returned with a response yer highness." He looks at her and says, "I can wait as long as yeh like ma'am." He says as he hands the note with a unfamiliar wax seal on it.

Taking the message, Victoria breaks the seal and reads it over quickly. "Give me a moment to write out my reply. I shall be back presently." She turns back into her solarium to begin writing her response.

Pressing her seal into the warm wax, Victoria seals her return message. Walking back out to the front area again, she passes the sealed message over to the urchin. "Take this back to your employer with all haste." she says and then returns again to her solarium.

"A message for you, Your Grace" the young page says as he leaves a note on a silver platter on her desk, bowing he steps back a few steps, waiting to see if he is needed to send a reply. Victoria picks up the note and breaking the seal reads the message within. Setting the note down she grabs a fresh sheet of parchment and her quill and pens a note herself. Sealing it with wax, she beckons the page forward again. "See this delivered to the Arch Mage at the Arcane Sanctum immediately." The page bows and turns heading out of the room at a brisk pace.

Victoria smiles and calls her lady-in-waiting, Alexandria, over saying "Ask Diravera to come to me at once please."
"Yes, Your Grace." Alexandria says and walks out of the room to fetch the Dark Elf Vizier.
 
By now the servants have come to recognize the fancy dress, white lilies and proper manners approaching. "A her Highnezz Commandz ve hall obeyz. Master Justeau az her convenience ja?" :wub2:

After taking all of Laurent's weapons, a guard escorts him down the long hallway and into the solarium, closing the door behind him. The sounds of movement just outside the door means that the guard has taken up position just on the other side, it is not the only indication of increased security in the Duchess's wing you had noticed. You spot the Grand Duchess at her desk a few piles of papers and ledgers, in various stages of being worked on, in front of her.

"Master Justeau, what a pleasant surprise" Victoria says, looking up from her work. "What brings you to see me this day?" smiling she puts down her quill and waits for a response, but remains seated. "Please forgive me for not rising to greet you more formally, but I am extremely busy today, and if it were anyone else that requested audience I would have turned them away."

Already on her way to see their Grace, Alexandrea's presents seemed unnecessary. Yet the girl tagged along. Upon reaching Victoria's chambers, she knocked softly on the door then called out, "Your Grace, may it please you if I enter?".

"Yes of course Diravera, please come in". Victoria sets down her pen to await her Vizier.
 
After entering the room and showing her respect with a deep bow, Diravera waited for their Grace to speak. She had been summoned after all. Then she would voice her own reasons for coming. The news of his choice of action at the Ogre's Head seemed puzzling, yet she had said she would inquire so it was only honourable to do so.

"Have a seat Diravera please. I have something I wish to know." Victoria says smiling at her vizier.

Having finished the conversation with their Grace, Diravera exited Victoria's chambers. She headed to her own room, adressing a passing servant on the way. "I'm going to need someone to deliver a letter for me, send a messenger to my room." The servant nodded, then went to find someone suitable for the task.

Tossing her cloak to a servant before he could so much as speak, Diravera quickly made her way to their Grace's chambers. The servant stumbled, catching up to her speedy pace, "Vizier, is there something I can fetch for you?". She neared their Grace's chambers.

"No, actually, increase the guard at the door, make sure a couple of them are quick on their feet."

"Vizier?..." the servant started, she quickly cut him off,

"If... someone requests to see Her Grace in an unusual manner, send a guard running to warn Her Grace immediately."

The servants nodded, then ran off, apparently to attend to his most recent instruction.

Diravera knocked firmly on the door to their Grace's chambers, "Your Grace, my apologies for the current hour, I must speak with you.", she said loudly, hoping their Grace was not too sound asleep to hear.

"Come in" Victoria answers. Rising from bed she pulls on her robe preparing to hear what has occurred to prompt a visit at such a late hour from her Vizier.

The dark elf entered, shut the door behind her, and bowed deeply to their Grace.

"Your Grace, I have some unsettling news for you. An individual who seemed to look just like your son visited the Ogre's Head. He seemed to be a vampire, and refer to Your Grace as Mumsie." Diravera paused for a moment, the continued, "He said he would be visiting you, Your Grace. It is a relief to see you are safe. Your Grace, his current state seems to be the work of Kara Vale."

"Your Grace, there has been progress in the recovery of His Majesty, the gipsy Nadja claims to have seen him as the prisoner of a male medusa in Duskholme. She has learned that twenty people can enter and exit Duskholme, and only at dusk. Your Grace, those of Parson's Breach seem likely to put a rescue party together."

Having summarized the evenings events, she waited for any questions their Grace may have.

"My son? Here in the city? He is no longer the loving boy that I remember and cherished." Victoria's eyes tear up slightly but she takes a deep breath and gathers herself. "Have the guard increased. I will have someone fetch Chip, it is probably best that you and he remain in here with me tonight until we can be assured the threat is passed for this night anyway." Speaking quickly to one of the servants always on standby outside her quarters, Victoria requests they find Chip and also orders up some tea and scones for her and Diravera. She then proceeds to the couch in front of the fire and takes a seat. "This gypsy has seen my brother? That is excellent news. Do they know yet where the portal is located and how do they open it at dusk? When shall they launch a rescue mission do you think?" Victoria waits for more details on her brother's situation.

Following their Grace to the warm of the fire, she answered the questions put to her.

"Your Grace, it is my understanding that the maps used by those of Parson's Breach where pushed forwards by Nadja. It seems those hold the information needed. Your Grace, Nadja had said she would be visiting the Sactum to speak with the Arch Mage, then resting for the night at the Earth Weaver's Guild. Should we send for her?

Your Grace, if it pleases you, may I check your neck for marks? The biata who was bit at the masquerade had no memory of it, I would like to ensure Your Grace is well."
