I think we should start a new dynasty. A lot of the old RP's have a lot to do with the Whitedeath name…
I'll have to alter my character
Litha watched him go with a faint smile flirting around her mouth, then turned and fell into Falmouth's arms. "Home at last, dearest…" She sighed, snuggling into her shoulder.
He chuckled and rubbed her back. "Come inside, Litha-my-love."
Litha nodded and followed him inside, turning to shut the door. She watched Jared out of sight before closing it with a contented sigh. Falmouth had two glasses of wine and a bowl of fruit on a tray, and he stood waiting for her.
"Night falls outside." Litha spoke softly.
"Yes. Even the Earth must have her rest before turning a new page."
The young boy did have a point: it was Jared's obligation to forge, prepare, and present the crowns to the Whitedeath family when the time came. But how could he travel to his forge without this kid getting in the way? He knew about Platime's reputation as a child thief, and he didn't want him getting into his private stuff. Some of his parents? most treasured heirlooms were still kept in his house.
He silently but quickly formed a plan in his brain, then he stood up and put an arm around the short preteen.
"Hey, kid, I have an idea: why don't you come with me, and we'll go get the crowns together. You can carry one and I'll carry the other. We'll present them to the King and Queen, and we'll both get honorable praise for our teamwork! How about it?"
This wasn't really his plan, though: his plan was to ride with Platime in a carriage which would drop him off half a mile from his house, and then take the boy as far away as possible while Jared walked the rest of the way home. With that, Jared could avoid any unwanted theft in his own house while he was retrieving the crowns and delivering them to the royal couple. But the less Platime knew, the better.
"Come on, kid, let's go get those crowns. The sooner, the better! Follow me!"
Meanwhile, Melinda was having a hard time keeping her mind off of Jared, and she kept fidgeting in her seat, looking around the cathedral for any sign that her boyfriend had entered with the royal crowns. One of her friends grabbed her arm firmly but carefully, and reiterated Pentus' assurances that Jared would indeed be coming. He just needed more time.
