First topic message reminder :

Elene Cromwyll knew she had made a mistake the minute Yoren Halscreft left the city alive.

"Indeed, which is why this is neatly a summons hidden behind pretty language. The way it is written leaves no recourse."

"Indeed. She left no grounds for declining, and gave it in person. This is a poor portent indeed."

"If I may," Noël interrupts, walking down the stairs. "She can't hide her motives from me. With a bit of digging--"

"No. If you're found to be doing any digging, you could face execution at worst and exile at best."

"Hmph. Very well. But if I attend the ball, you can be certain I will put my investigative skills to work."

"Hmm... We will have to work on your dancing skills first. Promptly after sunset tonight."

Noël grimaces. "...Yes, sister. Now, if you'll excuse me, I must get back to my studying." He returns upstairs to his room.

"His inquisitive nature isn't suited to the climate of Berkshire," Rexley observes with a sigh. "He digs where he ought to leave things lie."

"Digging is an important social skill, for those with power who wish to gamble. He is not well suited for it. Money is all but meaningless here, for the wealthy. With our finances, information may be the most generous commodity available to us..."

"Be that as it may, information pertaining to Lady Cromwyll would be dangerous to possess, let alone sell. She is incredibly secretive, from my sparse meetings with her."

Nalima frowns. "I wonder what specifically it is he studies... But it is no business of mine, I suppose."

"So alike Mother..." Nalima smiles wistfully.

Rexley smiles as well, though it's a tinge sadder than his sister's.

The days until the ball dwindle away. Surprisingly, the young Lord Mormont declined to respond to his invitation. Rumors abound. Nalima arrives at the ball and finds herself roped into a dance or two. Noël brings a stack of books with him and sits down at a table near the hearth.

Elene, however, pulls Rexley aside for a conversation.

"Lady Cromwyll." Rexley greets her with a bow befitting their respective stations.

"Sir Croix," Elene greets him, acknowledging his status as a knight -- and ignoring his status as High Seat of a noble House. "It has come to my attention that you and your family are lacking in funds. I am sympathetic to your woes, believe me." She calls a servant over. "Wine?"

"Wine would be lovely, thank you. As for the financial state of House Croix, I can't imagine that someone of your repute would find the House finances so intriguing."

Elene smiles. "I find your plight moving, and have come to offer you aid." Elene activates a strand of her seduction magic. This is one of the perfect situations she has set up: a physically, though not socially powerful family, in desperate need of services she can offer. A handsome Lord, single, who would be insane to reject her power and wealth -- not to mention bewitching good looks. "Surely my investment would be worthwhile, I trust you'll agree? Your house need not wallow in the lower ranks."

"A kind offer, but I'm sure we can manage. No thank you."

Elene blinks. This was not expected. A man in Rexley's position had few grounds on which to deny her. ...True, it was possible he wasn't interested in women. Or anyone, for that matter. A man of his years so unapologetically single -- he had, to her knowledge, never seen anyone at all -- was potentially a man completely unswayed by romantic whims.

The seduction magic would still do its work, but less effectively. It would be easier to ignore, if only slightly. Yet the financial offer! How could he turn down such a proposition?!

"I don't think you comprehend the magnitude of what I'm offering you, Sir Croix. Your lifetime earnings I can make in a day; in less than a day I can pay off your debts. Your family is in a position of need."

Elene's lips thin to a line, then she smiles, inclining her head the barest fraction. "Of course. Well, just keep the offer in mind." She turns her back to him, swaying slightly as she walks back into the mix.

Rexley's attention is elsewhere than the departing hostess, however, for he has ducked into the crowd of guests once more to search for his siblings.

Noël remains by the hearth; his book is discarded, and a young, petite woman sits somewhat awkwardly across from him. Nalima is dancing with a tall, imperious looking person in a white uniform of some sort -- most probably a high-ranking security officer.

Rexley decides to leave them to enjoy themselves for the time being. It'd be rude to just up and walk out now, anyway.
