"That's a good question, Cori. Let me ask you: how would you react to someone holding a dagger up to your face rather than someone offering you a cup of tea? Undoubtedly, you would feel more comfortable with the person offering you tea. They have that warm smile and they look trustworthy, so you take the cup. However, when you drink from the cup, it is the last thing you ever do because it was poisoned. Now, was the person offering you the cup trustworthy or were they wearing a mask? What was their intention?"

It took a while for Corianna to process this. She then gathered that she meant that all of these people were hiding their true selves in order to look good in front of all the other kingdoms. "They were... Always going to kill you, even if it did not appear so." She said quietly and slowly, scrunching her eyebrows. Corianna then looked around at all the others in the room. Would it one day come down to killing each other? This was all very confusing for her.

After the ball she went to her room. It took her ages to fall asleep. She was still thinking about what Celia said. Was the Ostwall in danger? Was her father and siblings in danger? Was she? She had to count herself to sleep so her brain would slow down. "1...2...3...4...5" She continued quietly until she fell asleep. Corianna would ask her father soon.

When she awoke she got up and stared at her trunk. What would be suitable for horse riding? She wondered. After eventually picking something out, and quickly getting dressed before the servants came, she sat on her bed and fiddled with her fingers until Celia awoke and for the time being forgot about what she had learnt yesterday.
