Caedus' face seemed to be one of pure frustration. He reluctantly raised his hand and snapped his fingers. Two servants rushed up and took a knee before him.
"Take this woman... and see her to a hospitable room. Give her a change of clothes and whatever else she asks, as long as she stays out of my hair..."
Caedus trudged up the stairs back to what used to be the Throne room of Valentine Manor.
the front gates of Peace City burst open. Forenz walked into the city with a strutt, and immediately started issuing orders, assigning various legionsof his battallion to set up defense points around the city. He walked up to Peace City's main building, and walked through the door. He passed up a woman in black, not throwing her the slightest look of interest.
Forenz walked up the stairs to the battle coordination room to find Richand, Siana, Oric, and, to his great surprise, Caedus. he grumbled a moment, and without any introduction, without any word whatsoever, he simply walked up behind Oric and stood next to his king with his arms folded across his broad chest, staring Caedus down.
