"Go bother Nicolae." Wendy decided, shooing them off into Nico's general direction.

Ara looked around for Nico and then ran towards him.

Kay, in that case I'm assuming they did what Wendy said and went to bother Nicolae...

Wendy half-smiled at Alienor sheepishly. "Sorry, madame. They're... y'know. Kids."

Meanwhile, Katie had grabbed Arabella and pulled her behind a table, trying to come up with the perfect plan to scare Nicolae out of his socks.

"Should we throw some food at him?"

"We don't want to be mean. We just wanna scare him!" Katie peeked over the table. "Okay, I have a plan."

Is the ball still going on? I'm just trying to figure out how to get Leina acquainted with people.

The ball is indeed still going on. You can have Leina meet Nico if you like. Assume he's stuffing his face with pastries.

"Well, uhh..." Wendy curtseyed. "See you around, miss." She quickly retreated and returned to her duties.

"What is it?"

"So you go up and say hi to him," Katie explained, "while I sneak around behind and yell 'boo' really loudly!"

Sorry, Drama, I'm gonna take a different angle with Nico.

"BOO!" said Nico. He popped out from behind a table.

Riva could hardly believe her eyes. Caden. Sobbing. 

She strode carefully - quietly - into the room, placing a hand on his shoulder to test his reaction. “Caden?” she whispered, mostly making sure he didn't snap up and kill her. The great boulder of a man shook beneath her wet fingers and Riva could only wonder at the oddness of a mountain-like man appearing so weak before her. 

Her luck couldn't have been better. Would killing him really be so easy?

The general shuddered upon contact, curling up tighter and clenching his eyes closed harder. "Forgive me, please forgive," he whispered over and over again while his body trembled, being cold to the touch.

Riva gave a sneering smile. "You don't deserve forgiveness," she hissed. Satisfied with his pitiful response, she walked to her work station, looking about for the right potion.

Caden broke down into tears again, "please. Oh Stars above, I loved her."

"Oh yeah? Is that why you killed her? Why you were going to kill me, too?" She ran her hands over labels, finally finding one of her favorite potions in her arsenal. It was in a large vial, since she used it so often and labeled, "Mamma's Recipe." Riva wondered briefly why she hadn't chosen a new name. Night Brew maybe? "Night" for "Nyx." Bah, it didn't matter. She poured some into a cup, looking for some paralyzing agents to add to it.

"Yes, that much I figured. I meant more in the vicinity of now."

"Find the sword," repeated the specter. "Or wait, prepare, and then find it."

Leina went to the ball because it sounded better than latrine duty, but she'd spent her whole time by the food table. Not that anyone could blame her; royal food was good.

"I can't-" The curled up form that was the general shuddered, his voice lowering to a whisper. "I couldn't go on she was stolen from me, I can't go through that again. I can't let myself love her . . ."

"And you wouldn't happen to want this sword for yourself, right? 'Cause I'll be honest, I think you want it more than I do."

"Love who, you jerk?" Riva loaded a syringe.

"Riva . . ." Caden admitted softly, taking in a deep, shaky breath. "I can't go through it again, I just can't."

"Awww, you love me?" Riva strode forward. Her face was bruised, her makeup was a mess, her hair was tangled and wet, and her clothing barely covered her bony, wrinkled body. "THEN WHY DID YOU HURT ME!!" She took his face in her hands and slapped him. "Damn you! Damn you to Mal! You don't love me." Riva's body shook with sobs. "You don't, you never did."

"The sword will further our goals," admitted the specter. "But none can wield it except the heir."
