Ilek frowns, "Where was her guard?" He asks Coen.

"The man was there, much good he did," Maol responds instead. "He doesn't-"

Deskyl's anger redoubles, and his words cut off as a sourceless pressure appears at his jaw.

    "This isn't up for discussion, sir. If you touch one of her people again for any reason, she will kill you. Do you understand?"

The pressure eases, but doesn't fade entirely.

He's furious, but, "Yes" he spits. Any further words are cut off.

Permalink

She drops him without further ceremony and stalks off.

He lands a little awkwardly, catching himself on the table with one hand just in time to avoid falling all the way to the floor. He opens his mouth to call after her, but Ilek cuts him off this time, scowling at him.

"Even if you didn't know who she was, she had a guard, and this isn't your fort, Commander. Mind your place."

This shuts him up for a moment, and then Ilek turns to follow Deskyl and DZ before he can regather himself to respond.

Deskyl is on her way out of the building when Ilek catches up to her, still fuming, though the effect transmitting this fact to everyone in the area is fading. Asshole, she signs.

"Yep." He paces alongside her, glancing up at the second floor of the CC as they leave the building, "We're not collecting Sana from her room?"

Permalink

Eating in hers. I'm not asking her to come out yet.

Permalink

"Probably a good idea." He frowns, "I want to talk to her guard. He shouldn't have allowed her to be injured, Commander or no." The man might have just been too intimidated to interfere, but that means he's not an appropriate guard. 

Permalink

Yes.

I still want to find the city Artefact today. Not leaving here alone if it's not safe though.

"Not safe inside the fort, or not safe outside? There's no guarantee the enemy will have actually left the vicinity entirely, though they've been pulling a lot of patrols - that's what the commanders were arguing about when we entered. For Sana... I can talk to Jaim about setting one of the Elites as her guard? None of them will be intimidated by Maol."

If she comes with us I'll keep her safe. Prefer not to have the distraction though. We'll see what she thinks of the Elites.
