Brinn answered to her concerns while Asta dismissed them as silly - well she didn't say so but it was quite clearly in her tone. When the woman turned and started talking with her sister, Sereth stuck her tongue out at her. She knew it was childish but she felt justified in doing it.

It was not that she didn't like Asta - she did, she had adored Asta and her dragon when she had first joined the King's Players, but lately the woman had also started to irritate her. She seemed to forget Sereth was now already 12 - almost woman grown - and not a mere nine year old girl like when she and old Aelin had joined the troupe. Also, Sereth did not understand why all the men liked her so much, it was not that Asta was not pretty but she was not a stunning beauty. And even now she was flirting with the newcomer. Maybe she thought no one would notice but Sereth did.

The newcomer, however - without forgetting to smile at Asta but that went without saying - excused himself and hurried away. Now what is he up to? Sereth wondered. Nothing good I think! Since nobody seemed to be needing her, and half of the troupe was missing anyway, Sereth decided to slip away for a moment to follow the stranger, but stealthily.
