Aulexis tries to take in the entire scene in the instant before the messenger tries to get past her. Warran looks serious, the messenger looks pissed, and the inspector seems to be enjoying the confrontation. She can’t stand public officials, and she was going to side with Warran in any dispute so the point is moot, but she dearly hopes that Warran isn’t doing something… ‘Amusing’. She would hate to be the subject of other’s amusements.
“Warran seems to think you’re not done talking.” She raises a hand, palm outward in a ‘hold it’ gesture, her missing finger on display.
“Sit, and find your tongue.”
(By using her authority and Command, she will cow the messenger into staying put and revealing more information about Diana’s state when she penned and sent the letter)
