"Has she come in yet?" Ruhdlan asked politely waiting for Scarlet. He couldn't stand how proper the palace was because it reminded him too much of Vveldergaid than of Frosthund. A mighty land, Frosthund is because of their will to live in the harshest climate of the Treaty lands. Looking around he could see the carpet was imported, the Furniture handcrafted too well, but also the Chandelier was from Vveldergaid! He couldn't believe that Lady Scarlet was a Noblewoman in the house of Frosthund and still have all the luxury of a home such as this!
"She has not come in just yet, I'm afraid." The Butler replied. Ruhdlan did not say much else and returned to his seat in the fancy halls. He sat down in the strange cusions that felt like sitting on a Cat, much less it is. He tried to relax, but this luxury came too easily to him and he did not like this one bit. He couldn't help but notice that there was more Fireplaces than rooms that kept the house warm! He couldn't stand it much longer and stood to try and calm down. He did not care for Pain, but luxury is a feeling that is not familiar to him as much as others. He waited a bit longer before asking the servant more about Lady Scarlet, but his anxiousness caught up and he hurried over to the butler.
"Is she in yet?" Ruhdlan asked again.
"She's in, but not yet ready to see you." The Butler Replied. "She is changing into her day clothing."
"Day clothing? But she's of the house of Frosthund! She shouldn't be as Luxurious as that!"
"Well then sir, perhaps you'll sit down." the butler motioned to a chair. Ruhdlan took offense and did not care for the butler.
"I do not take luxury lightly, but rather I take it as a gift that is earned through hard work and gaining all the needs for it. I do not need fancy items from Vveldergaid, but what I need is to talk to lady Scarlet. Take me to her now!" Ruhdlan demanded.
"And perhaps you'll rememeber this is a Council Member's house because if you don't behave, you'll be sent to trial." The butler threatened.
"So you'll do well to remember that I am Ruhdlan, Keeper of House Frosthund, bearer of the Crystal Sword, Fourth Lord of the Sighenlands! I am a warrior at heart and serves as a leader to my people, so no Council Member will be feared by me!" Ruhdlan remarked back. He spoke in a harsh tone that threatened the butler. The butler did not look as if he knew, but instead gave in and walked away from the room. He turned around and motioned Ruhdlan up the stairs by pointing the way. Ruhdland received the message and started to walk up the well finished stairs to the Carpet at the head of the stairs. There he saw the countless doors go in both directions with the Repeating of the same decor over and over again. The butler stood at the left and again pointed the way down the hall. Ruhdlan took no delay and followed the butler.
They wandered down the hall for a short while and finally they turned round to face a large wooden door that was seemingly out of place in a hall such as this one. Ruhdlan never noticed the door, so he didn't worry much. The butler opened the door for Ruhdlan and inside was Lady Scarlet. She had just finished putting on her large Blue Dress and her Red shoes; The Traditional Scarlet heels that seemed to rise higher than the bed, but in reality were shorter. She turned around to look at Ruhdlan. Her red hair flew backwards and revealed a pretty face of the House of Scarlet.
"Mi'lady, this Barbarian wanted to see you right away and I couldn't help but take him to you." The Butler spoke in a tone of voice. Lady Scarlet did not ignore the Idea of a stranger in her mansion, but was worried of who he was.
"Might I ask who you are, Warrior?" She spoke softly in a Lady-like tone. She smiled like a polite young girl to a stranger who seemingly knew her. Her blue Eyes sorrowed Ruhdlan, but he had to remain strong.
He replied, "I am Lord Ruhdlan of the Sighenlands. I've come with a message from King Ravuel Frosthund for you." Lady Scarlet looked at him and wondered what it was he wanted, but she suggested a small smile would fix the world right. She wondered a bit on what the king would want, but instead did not worry.
"That will be all, Fedzig." She told the butler as she tried to get him away from the two.
"Very well, Mistress." The butler bowed and walked away down the hall. Ruhdlan looked at her and did not believe his eyes.
"Well? What's the message from the king?" She asked, interrupting Ruhdlan's dream. He stumbled back into reality and tried to remember the message and finally gave it to her.
"Ah yes, he wanted me to tell you that the Bitch-wolf has finally given birth to the Treaty Children and that the lands will need an ambassador such as yourself to help further the peace before a Civil War erupts. Will you respond to your duties?" He asked. Lady Scarlet was surprised to hear that, but she did remember that it was almost Seventy Years ago when the Prophet Zheyar gave the Proof of the Seven-born Children of the Bitch Aandgara. Unkindly it was, but it was told that the Wolf would bear Seven who would be used as Sacrifices to bring peace to the world. It was long awaited by the people to find these wolves.
