Sereth listened to the old man with a serious face while secretly regretting she had childishly taken Asta's hand, for the woman was squeezing her fingers numb. "Asta, can you please let go now? It hurts," she whispered rather urgently. The woman let go and whispered an apology at Sereth's direction, which the newly arrived young noble smiled at.

Sereth didn't get it though. She definitely didn't like the old nobleman - all nobles are like that, Aelin would've said but she had been gone for years now - and what on earth was he doing making his son interfere with their play on top op everything else? Sereth was sure the man would ruin Brinn and Aldarion's work - as if there hadn't been enough trouble already.

"I don't get it," she said to Asta in a voice that was intended to be a whisper. "What's happening? Why was that old self-important... piece of nobility blackmailing us?"
