"Time to wake up, Beldir," Faerveren said, gently shaking him awake before moving to Gurdir's side. Getting the two boys dressed and ready for the day, she leads them down to the dining rooms, finding Cirion setting the table with various other servants. Sitting them down, she sits in between them. Although she knew that she could have hired a servant to care for the boys, after what happened to Daechir and Dimaethor she didn't want to let them out of her sight, until she felt that it was safe enough for them to. When that day came, they would probably already know how to use a sword to protect themselves, which would do nothing but calm her. It's their birthdays soon, she thought to herself, in about a week... Deciding that she would do something special for them then, she flattened down Gurdir's hair, which had started sticking up when he slept. ------------------------------ Lae had gone back to her official duties a couple weeks ago, taking care of the third floor rooms. The third floor wasn't used as much as the second or first, or a few of the floors above it, since most of its rooms had been used as vantage points to shoot out at invading enemies. The arrow holes in the walls gave it a rather morbid look, and not many wanted to sleep there or do business there. But, Lae liked keeping it clean. All she had to do most days was dust up and make sure no one would trip on anything if they came up there.
