Arhyvhynne pushed the door open farther and saw Padxyffu standing back a little from the door. "Excuse me a moment," she said to Uriel. She instructed Ghemella to stay with Uriel and then left the room, closing the door behind her. She spoke quietly to Padxyffu. "I take it you have received a response from Bhel'Ehzz."

"Yes," the middle-aged halfling with short red hair responded. Padxyffu went on to relate the message from the capital. Upon hearing it, Arhyvhynne took a deep breath and let it out slowly. She was quiet for a moment before she thanked Padxyffu and informed her that she would send for her when her services would again be required.

The High Witch collected herself before she returned to Uriel's room. She opened the door but remained outside. Her eyes betrayed the concern she felt as did her voice. "I am afraid there have been some new developments which require my immediate attention. I will be by later to continue our discussion."

The High Witch turned to leave but Uriel called to her. "Is something wrong?" he asked.

Arhyvhynne walked up to him and took his hands in hers. They were ice cold. "There is a related matter which I must bring before the Council." She gave him a poor attempt at a smile. "We will talk when I come back."


The High Witch knocked on the door and waited for an answer. When none came she knocked again. She was about ready to leave when the door opened. She breathed a sigh of relief. "Thank the Goddess. I was hoping you would be here," she said.
