@Leopard- That's fine XD
@aquadragon13288- We can always do with more prisoners!
@Onyx- We probably need to figure out how animus magic is going to affect Aurora ('s soul) at some point.
Just going to assume Spear is in the doorway.
Queen Spear quickly glanced at Aurora. Putting on more jewellery... of course. Insurance. I wonder how many she's enchanted already... Turning to her, she arranged her face into a perplexed expression. "There's no need to put on jewellery, Aurora," she said, tone kind -or at least as kind as she could make it. "It's not like there's visiting royalty or anything." Or anything... her mind echoed omniously. She composed herself for her daughter's reply only to be distracted by the arrival of Ermine. She started to reply, not noticing her daughter's rudeness, only to be distracted -again- by the arrival of Blizzard.
She looked first to Ermine. "Obviously you already know, daughter." she said, her tone light with little, if any, hint of mockery or malice. "But as far as I am aware, only one prisoner escaped, and my champion is not missing, but merely in pursuit. As for the secret animus, you are correct. I am curious to who they are though," she finished, her 'curious' underlaid with tones of anger, disappiontment, and cool resolve.
"I assume this news is about the escaped prisoner," she said, addressing Blizzard, her voice blank, her posture designed to convey an air of slight interest. "How is the chase going?" A slight rebuke in that statement, a hint of displeasure at the mistake of letting a prisoner free, and the fact that this IceWing was not in pursuit now.
