As if one cue, Aurescia entered the room.
"Oh my love! It's time for us to- AHHHH!!!" A rather lightly dressed female dracon dropped the bottle of wine she had been carrying. By the look on her face, she was quite terrified, to say the least. Ophion ran into the room as soon as he heard the bottle shatter.
"Aurie! Don't worry, dear. This is just a-"
"Kill it! Kill it with fire!
"- don't worry. He's a friend." Most females wouldn't have been reassured so easily, but as the wife of an archmage, Aurescia had been through quite a bit. Worse than this, for sure. His words calmed her down quickly, almost magically so.
"In that case, sorry for freaking out back there. My name is Aurescia. And you are?" @bloonewb
Kali waited a moment for Kutur to get his mind together. Then another when she realized he needed a bit more time. She grew impatient when another minute passed, and concerned when a second one passed after that. "Oh dear, you really overdid it. Maybe this will help." She approached him and whispered a prayer to one of the gods, then placed her hand on his forehead. A small blue glow emanated from her fingers, then she drew her hand back.
"There we go. I don't think that will fix everything, but it will hold you until you can get some sleep later tonight. Now, are you feeling well enough to walk? We really need to get a move on if we're going to see the royal couple." Once again, she took his hand and led him forward, knowing that she was only guiding him as much as urging him on. Luckily, his steps grew more sure halfway to the palace and she was able to let his hand go without any problems.
As she feared, the crowds were massive and seemed to never let up, even though Ardasa and Rughoi were nowhere to be seen. With some difficulty, she maneuvered her way through the mob, trying her best not to lose Kutur. Eventually, they made it before the front gates of the palace, a large building which was still very much under construction. Recognizing her as one of Ardasa's friends and her lover as an important ally of the throne, they were let in without much fuss.
"Okay, love. I can go find Ardasa. I don't mind you coming with me or looking for Rughoi. Do whatever you want, but I've got to find her mercy. Or her ladiship. Or her worshipfulness. Or whatever the crowds call her these days."
