After detouring to Kaleva for the past few weeks, we’re back in Terragand with Kendryk. Julia Maxima- the highest cleric in the land- has just had Father Landrus arrested, and Kendryk has decided to intervene. He and Count Faris-his chief adviser- have just pushed past Julia’s guards, and into her private study. Greylen is Julia’s secretary.
“Prince Kendryk is here to see Her Holiness,” Count Faris said, as the door opened.
Greylen opened and closed his mouth a few times,but no sound came out. He looked like a trout gasping for air, and Kendryk had the sudden urge to laugh. Before he embarrassed himself, he swept off his hat and handed it to Greyeln, then stepped into the room, flinging his cloak back so the secretary had no choice but to take it.
Julia had already risen from behind a gigantic, ornate desk carved in ebony, and Kendryk kept his eyes fixed on hers. “I apologize for bursting in on you, Your Holiness, but I must speak with you immediately.”
He nodded toward Greylen, who had put Kendryk’s outerwear on a chair, and now stood near the door, wringing his hands. “Alone.”
