Emily put a calming hand on her shoulder. "I know how you feel, but we need to wait." The Chamberlain nodded. "He is busy. Listen to the woodswoman." Emily had left her cloak on Spirit.
Ryills expression didn't change as she looked at Emily but her voice said it all, "wait?, it's disrespectful. To me, to the diplomatic service and you also. " She sat down on the chair, "and including he doesn't see you as a Ranger." She retorted. "Can you do your Ranger stuff? Make it quicker?" Furry and anger was written over her face, gone was the calm expression, "and what I know about this guy." She snapped, "is he really doesn't care much, as long as he gets his drinks and his money." She have a quick laugh, "doesn't give a dang to anybody unless they are Nobel."
Emily shook her head in apology to the Chamberlain. She knelt in front of the Courier. "Yes, I know your frustrated, and you're angry, but we have no control over the Lord of the castle. As Rangers and Couriers we can't let our anger get the best of us. It'll only make you enemies and less likely to get to do stuff when you graduate."
Mama said Burn your biographies Rewrite your history Light up your wildest dreams
Ryills sat down, Anger sketched across her face, "if you say so." She muttered staring at the ground. Ryills knew that Emily was right, but still she couldn't help but feeling annoyed. ----
The chamberlain left the room, that courier was so insistent. "Lord Barney, the courier from Redmont had a letter for you and is waiting for you."
Lord Barney wasn't the most attractive man met, the years haven't been kind to him or his body, coming to the point where he rarly got up and did things, but preferred to sit in his chair looking out the window, which he was doing now. He waved his hand dismissively, "yeah, sure, could you bring me some tea and show her in." He said in a bored tone not looking at her chamberlain. The chamberlain nodded, "yes sir." -------
Ryills looked up as chamberlain came in, "Lord Barney has time to see you know." Ryills stood up, gone was her anger and replaced on her face was one of a pleasant smile, "Wonderful, thank you" she said her voice soft and sweet.
Ryills followed the chamberlain with Emily close on her heels and was shown in . Now she honestly thought Lord Barney would be me impressive, but she was sorely mistaken, in front of her was a overweight old guy, she cringed a little, his lack of dressing was a site for sore eyes.
"Courier Lady Perrie." The Chamberlain said, not acknowledging Emily what so ever. Ryills walked forward and handed The Lord the letter , "from castle Redmont, Lady Pauline request you read it and have a response." Ryills said, keeping her voice level and looking The Lord in the eyes. Barney nodded taking the letter and looking at it but not reading it "interesting, and when are you needing the response."
Ryills resist the urge to sigh, "by the time I leave." She said
Ryills cleared her throat, "Sir, I need you to read it now and give me your response." she said trying to keep her voice steady.
Lord Barney looked up at her, "I will read it when I have time." this time Ryills sorta lost it, "Sir, I insist you read it now, or my report to Lady Pauline will discribe in exact detail how you handle the messengers and how you, sir, are incapable of even getting up or the time to read it. That you wasted my time, and her time."
She placed both hands on his desk and stared him down. Lord Barney seemed to cower under her, and saw in her eyes she was not kidding. "Alright, alright.." he muttered.
Ryills straightened up, "Glad we are on the same terms sir." her voice returned to a sweet charming voice unlike the low tone she used earlier.
It took quite a few minutes, but Lord Barney, sweating nervously, read the letter and wrote his response and handed it to the 16 year old girl. "Put in a good word for me?" he said, Ryills smiled, "Of course. Good day sir." she said and followed the chamberlian out with Emily on her heels. Once they reached outside, Ryills breathed a sigh of relief, "Well that was eventful..." she turned to Emily, "Thank you for helping me back there. I really appreciate it."

Brandwyn: Hi Firehead! We are doing well. Dodging a Tropical storm here that might regain into a weak hurricane. Right now it is not much more than a few rain showers now and then. I hope you can squeeze in some time to write, Firehead. We are working on a new plot!

Brandwyn: LOL, that is funny Firehead. Cats are so unique. I haven't gotten another one yet because our living situation is not ideal at the moment. I still miss Harley Quinn a lot too. Not ready yet.
