A courier arrives at Jalitana Tower


The slight man was apprehensive, clutching the package he had been sent to deliver close to his chest.

It was nearly midnight when he finally climbed the spiral steps to the foreboding tower, and he could hear the various wolves and dogs howling and barking. But the money for the delivery was good, and he wasn't going to turn back now.

He laid the package down outside her door, and then knocked before hastily making his way down the steps.

The note pinned to the parcel read:

Isania, I believe you were looking for these. Make haste, if you would.

Sincerely,

W.

The blood, the flower, and the arrowheads.

Isania sat at her father's workdesk with a sigh, carefully binding the arrowheads to the shafts. Making her own arrows was something she'd done thousands of times before, but this time, perfection was something she couldn't miss on.

The poison was complete, whether or not it would work. If it didn't, Isania already knew who would pay for it.

Word is sent to Lord Corwin in New Rivenmaur.

quote:


Esteemed Lord Corwin,
The poison is complete, but I only have enough for so many arrows. I will deliver them personally, but feel you may not find a keener archer than myself to see them fly.

I regret to inform you however, that it recently came to my attention ...

During these times, every so often, a single wild thistle would be found at the top of the tower stairs. The man who left it did not linger long, but perhaps the small token might add a moment of sweet solace to the constable's otherwise high stress days.

Re: A courier arrives at Jalitana Tower


One such night, rather than a flower left outside her door, a tin box with a thistle stamped on the lid is left for her, with the usual flower tied to the box. Inside, the box is divided between butter shortbread cookies on one side, and a bottle of whiskey on the other. No note is left.

"That's mine."

Isania pointedly looked at her father, who sat at their table with an opened package in front of him. He took his sweet time in chewing, and then swallowing the shortbread.

"It's delicious." He remarked with a smirk.

"That was for me." Isania crossed her arms.

"Not anymore." Shaylisser patted his stomach.

"How the hell did you eat the whole package!?"

"I didn't. I shared it with Wilgold."

Isania went red with rage.
