Competent, eh? Even more so than the 'heir'. Heh heh, she liked the sound of that. But even so, she had been right, and it was just another glorified errand. Still, she was not so foolish as to reject Leon's command. She may have been a bitch sometimes, (or, pretty much all the time) but she wasn't stupid. Far from it, in fact. She had seen the man in action when he took the throne from the old king. She knew she didn't stand a chance against him, "Yeah, alright. Kinda grungy looking guy, lotsa knives on him, got a bad vibe to him? Actually, I passed by him on the way here, I think. I'd heard Aethyra had him, but I didn't see her. I'd heard she took a liking to him. Had a feast for him and all. Why would she do that, I wonder." She almost laughed as she left the room. Yes, she intentionally liked getting the 'heir' in trouble. Yes, she liked being a bitch. As she took to the halls, she grabbed Alain by the arm, which caused him to wake up from his trance.

"Let go of me." He said resolutely, no fear in his eyes as he glared the knight down.

When Selphie spoke, she caught him off guard. He hadn't expected a woman to be behind the mask, "Don't get pissy. The Lord just wants to talk to you. The girl was supposed to come get you whenever ago, but she never did. Ergo, he sent me. This doesn't need to get violent." But it could very easily if he was going to be a pain in her neck.

Alain, who was pretty much done with the royals, this castle, and their weird as problems, stood for a moment before finally relenting. This was better than talking to Trifect, wasn't it? This was the older man's boss, after all. Despite wanting to leave, the weirdness was not enough to scare the gold-lust out of Alain, "Fine. But if this is a trap, I'll-"

"You'll what, stab me with your little knives? Scary. Now come on. The Lord has been waiting hours, so the quicker we get there, the better." She said, pulling him in the direction of the throne room. If Leon wasn't happy, she didn't want to be on the receiving end of his wrath.

It took mere minutes to get them back to the throne room, and Selphie pushed Alain into the room, "You want some privacy for this, my Lord, or what?"

Alain looked up at the all important Lord. So this was Leon, the taker of the castle, killer of the old king. New Lord of the castle. Hmm, "You have my congratulations on taking the castle. Not much of an interesting battle from where I was, but I probably missed most of it."
