Then I will take the time to armor up - although I will try and keep my hunting cloak about me, so that it’s not like I’m riding up for a fight.

Feld quickly pops his head back out.

“There appears to be a discussion, about the best time to leave.”

Dylan and Feld will take the horses down to the stables and see about getting them all comfortably settled for the evening.
When finished, Feld will stay with the Palfry while Dylan goes inside to confer with Sol and Lady Rowenna.

“Of course, my lady. I stand ready when you are.”
Dylan will return to the hall entrance and keep one eye out for Sir Idres, and another eye out in the general direction of the stables.

(Literally the same direction.)

About twenty minutes later Sir Idres arrives. From your sheltered viewpoint, you see him enter the stable, then several seconds later he reappears, heading towards the manor, Feld sucked up in his wake.

Dylan returns to the lady’s room, calling in before waiting outside of it.
“My lady, Sir Idres approaches.”

Sir Idres enters, his demeanour, is as ever calm and courteous.

“Is it true? You found it?”

“Yes, Sir Idres. Good news. It was in some Mausoleum. Not sure how it got there, but at least we have it now and the Lady is set to head to her wedding.”
Dylan regards Sir Idres cautiously.
He still cannot believe that anyone would have so little regard for the laws of hospitality as to falsely detain a guest. As there is no proof of Sir Idres involvement, he is still willing to give him some benefit of the doubt, some out with which to save his honour, so he is purposefully not mentioning that the horse was tied up and fed inside the mausoleum - obviously kept there by someone.

Lady Rowenna skips out. “Isn’t this fantastic news? We’re just packing now. Thank you Sir Idres for your impeccable courtesy. But I will impede you no longer.”

Sir Idres grins. “One more night is not an imposition. Besides, the sky goes dark and we all know what happened last time.”

“No.”

The word echoes loud in the great hall.

“No”

Sir Idres stares straight at you, his eyes reddening, his voice shaking.

“You will not take her from me, not to be married off to some filthy knight of Salisbury. She will stay…”

He swallows hard and draws his sword.

“…and she will love me…”

He moves to attack you Dylan.

Dylan was prepared for Sir Idres. His disappointment in Sir Idres’ flagrent abuse of the laws of hospitality turning to anger. He draws his sword and moves to defend himself and Lady Rowena.
