How did they get all of these trees inside?! This place is amazing. Little snacks are just running around on the buffet table. I don’t understand why I can’t seem to catch one. I was really hoping to share it with Lamont. He looks awesome in his Lion costume…meow! So many people with shiny shiny baubles. But I have to focus on the task at hand. Protect the birthday girl. Ok, I might have gotten a bit distracted. But I met this catman. His name was Arjun Kala. I thought at first it was a costume but he actually was a cat! I don’t see very many others like me around, although his hand were backwards which was kind of weird. So I spent some time dancing with him, he was super nice. Turns out he works for Tiller. Maybe he can help us out getting Tiller on our side. I hope I get to meet him again.
But focus….I have a job to do and we completely lost Cyrus and Anna. So we split up to find them and that’s when I noticed this furry wolf staring down at me from a balcony. It looked very suspicious so I headed up there. Turns out my kitty sense was right and the wolf had already cleared a spot for a duel. I’m always up for a challenge so I took it on. I was a bit surprised to find out it had an actual tail but I managed to defeat it and tie it up for the guards to deal with.
I found my way back to Lamont and discovered that Vesper had dispatched another assassin and the Abbot had dealt with some giant octopus thing. Unfortunately one of the assassins killed Paval who was trying to save Iryani. I didn’t get the full story because we still hadn’t found Cyrus and Anna and the Abbot was very concerned. So the only place we hadn’t looked at this point was the hedge maze. We headed out there as a group just as Cyrus and Anna were exiting the maze. They definitely looked like there had been a scuffle but it seems as though Cyrus had taken care of the last of the assassins so the rest of the evening should run smoothly.
And that’s when the most surprising thing of this whole event happened. The king showed up! No one has seen him in years! He was there to give Anna his blessing but he also whispered so very mysterious things to me and my friends. I didn’t really understand any of it. I think he’s been spending too much time indoors.
So all was well and everyone had gone to bed. The Abbot was patrolling the hallway and found a maid dead outside Anna’s room. He barged in to find Cyrus fighting another assassin. Apparently she had tried to poison him and Anna in their sleep. Boy these people are relentless. Cyrus almost had her beat but she managed to disappear in a puff of smoke. What a night!
