Anastasia's mind began to wander as soon as they stopped. "We're here," the man said. "Finally," Ana muttered. The blindfold was removed and Ana's eyes had to adjust to the dim lighting. The room he had led her to was dark and damp, water trickling down cracks in the stone walls. It was also cold. Anastasia blessed Andrea for recommending the long sleeved dress for the meeting. Still, her neck was exposed to the chill in the air, making her shiver slightly. "I'm sorry we have no ermine furs to give to milady," the man said, a hint of sarcasm in his voice. Anastasia shook her head. "It's alright." She then realized she could turn around and look at the man. Anastasia did just this, but the man had stepped into a dark corner that hid the upper half of his body.

"Why won't you let me see your face?" she asked, curious. He grunted in reply, but didn't answer her question. Anastasia pursed her lips and looked for a place to sit down. She didn't see one so remained standing, her hands neatly folded in front of her.

The man in the corner eyed her as she looked around. She had changed so much in the past three years. She was no longer the shy girl he knew, but had blossomed into a beautiful woman. But she had changed much more than that. Her hair was powdered white with a few decorations pinned to it. Also, rouge stained her cheeks and the air that was around her held something that he wasn't familiar with. "We're waiting for your friends to arrive," he said finally.
Fata Morgana

Fata took a huge breath. "So..." Huff. "Many..." Puff. "Steps." Exhale. Her escort didn't reply. "Can I have a break?" The man let out an indigant huff. "You just had one! And we're nearly there. So please, stop complaining." Fata pouted and said, "I don't like you." He replied, "Well, I don't like you either." Fata went ahead of the man, trying to find her way by herself, blindfolded. "Watch out for-" Suddenly, Fata fell on her ass on flat ground. The man sighed. "The landing."

Fata could hear his rushed steps as he went to help her up. "Are you okay?" Finally, the man undid her blindfold. She said without looking up at him, "Yes, I'm fine. Thank-" she suddenly stopped. Her escort.. wasn't that bad looking. No, Fata! Focus. Meeting. War. That stuff. Not hot captors. She finished weakly, "You." The man shook his head. "I wasn't supposed to let you see me. Shit." Fata shook her head. "I won't tell if you won't," she said with resignation. This day was getting weirder and weirder.

Fata was let into a dark, dank, and very cold room. She had to blink a few times to get used to the light, or lack of. "How home-y," she muttered. She glanced around until she saw one of the two people she had been dying to see all day. "Ana! Oh, thank goodness. I had no idea what the hell has been going on." She rushed to hug her friend. While doing that, the door opened again, this time bringing in the other person she wanted to see. "Amaya!" She ran over to hug her too. After releasing Amaya, she took a shaky breath. "Okay, so the gang's all here. Now what?"

Ana pulled on her petticoat after Fata's hug crinkled it. "Hello Fata, Amaya," she said gently, nodding. It then grew quiet after the question was uttered from the Fae's lips. Anastasia's escort straightened from leaning against the wall and stepped forward slightly. She cursed mentally when he avoided the light. "A messenger should be sent from within the forum to notify us that the Council is ready to meet with you," he said. "I'm sorry we have nothing to eat or drink while you wait."
