Good. They had delivered the cherry grog. Traveller would be happy. Valor was still stuck on wine. Thankfully, no one really cared to share their wine with him so the horse still viewed it as a treat and not part of the daily rations like Traveller did.
"Sepha?" one of the guards said from behind her. "Someone here to see you."
She turned around and looked up from a bill of lading. The man was medium height, of medium complexion and medium build. If someone had wanted to create average, he was it. Even his voice was medium. It was quite disconcerting in a way. She usually found something remarkable about people that fixed them in her memory. He's the one with the bright blue eyes. She's the one with the soft voice.
She smiled. "How can I help you?"
"I have a delivery, ma'am." He pulled two boxes out of a bag and set them on the table. They were pristine white with lovely dark blue ribbons carefully tied about them. The room filled with a heavenly scent. Her stomach growled in response.
"Oh, my. I don't know what that is, but it smells delicious." She turned away to set down the stack of papers and fetch some coin for the courier. When she looked up, the man was gone.
"How odd." She pulled one of the ribbons loose carefully, always fearful of an explosive. There was nothing but a large box of divinely dark chocolate cookies. "Who could have sent these?"
((Here's the deal. Someone delivered some cookies to Pia. They smell delicious. Pia will be passing them out to people when we chill in Bruuk's or the Recluse. The cookies may be just cookies, enchanted, poisoned, cursed or have whatever effect you desire. This was started by another person. I think I got that right. I'll also check and see if I can reveal his identity.))
