A messenger, wearing blue livery, rushes into the barracks. He asks the location of Laurent, of Parson's Breach, from one of the home guard on duty and after being given instructions he makes his way quickly to the war room. Upon entering, he approaches Laurent (His mistresses' description was right on, he marveled silently to himself at how amazing she was to remember such details) and bowing before him holds out the scroll in his hand. "A message, sir, from my mistress. I shall be waiting just outside if you wish to send a reply."
