I have decided that we all need an ice cream breakfast. What could possibly be better, waffles, ice creams, and strawberries…yummy!!!!
We have almost made it through the week. Hope everyone has a wonderful day!!!!
I'm making dinner. It's Chrissie's actual birthday today (the party was at the weekend because that's when everyone was free to celebrate!)
So, it's a Garlic & Herb Buttered Roast Chicken, with roasted honeyed parsnips & carrots, salted roast potatoes and a medley of Haggis & Black Pudding
(Blood Sausage?) topped with my own Mango, Ginger & sweet Chilli sauce.
Champagne is on ice....
And today's episode: The First Round
“Take care, Seeress,” he growled, “my men have bled and died for Aavelae. I do not take kindly to those who insult them with ignorant quips.
Now, if there is nothing else…?”
“There is something else. We are not through with this!”
“Yes, you are, Lady Meron.” Kaena said, sauntering into the anteroom and pulling a silk robe around her shoulders. She poured herself a goblet of
gingered water from the pitcher on the table and turned to face Siere, not bothering to tie off the robe. “Your titles might make those fluttering
birds at court cater to your temper, but the neither the Crown nor the Temple has authority to countermand an order given by the Lady High Commander
without specific decrees by the Queen and the Council of Ladies Captain.”
“Then I will petition. This is ridiculous! Who is the presiding officer of the Council?” she demanded.
Kaena grinned wickedly. “Why, I am, your Grace. Consider your petition noted.”
Siere’s eyes seemed to bulge, and the faintest flush rose in her cheeks. Her face became absolutely still.
“Yes, I thought that might clear matters up for you.” Kaena’s manner sharpened. Siere had brought out the Lady Commander now. “You will be
protected by men of Braeghe Color while you are in Avaanse, as we have been ordered to do by authority that exceeds your own, Lady Meron. This
discussion is over.”
Siere glared sharp ice at her. “Very well. See to it that your…pet…does not interfere in my affairs. I am never completely without recourse,
Lady Milaener.” With a contemptuous scowl for Gaalen, she turned abruptly and stalked from the room.
