Having holed up in a room only a few paces down the hallway of Princess Petunia, Elizabeth is currently putting the finishing touches on her casual attire for the day, sliding on her boots and doing a small amount stretching to make sure she is fully ready for whatever comes her way today.
"My, my. Seems like someone has been taking their training to heart."
She turns to look towards the direction of the voice to see her retainer, Revir, entering the room from a separate door. The two of them requested a joint room, so that they could have easy access to one another and be able to join one another at a moment's notice.
"But of course, Revir. I learned from the best after all."
The tiefling chuckles. "You're too kind, milady. In any case, I believe there has been a disturbance of some sort within the courtyard. Shall I investigate?"
"If you're going, then I will be joining you as well. Two heads are better than one, after all." Elizabeth starts making her way towards the door leading out to the hallway. Revir follows suit, his tail looping itself around her waist and keeping her close, causing her to lightly blush.
"Alright, we're in this together. Don't stray too far from me." He chides as he opens the door and exits out into the hallway.
Closing the door behind him, he immediately notices a messenger making a mad dash for Petunia's quarters. He removes his tail from Elizabeth's waist and moves to block his path, placing his hands on his shoulders. Before the lad can scream, Revir covers their mouth his right hand, giving him a look that suggests that he remains quiet. Elizabeth moves up to Revir's side, addressing the messenger with a calm tone.
"Everything's alright. We are not your enemies. My friend here is going to remove his hand from your mouth, and I would like for you to tell us what is going on. After that, I would request that you maintain your composure, and inform Her Highness that we are investigating the matter, and that there is no need for alarm. Do you understand?"
The messenger nods, resulting in Revir slowly removing his hand from his mouth. He take a moment to breathe, and then begins to describe the demonic entity that is wreaking havoc downstairs. After that, he quickly bows in respect of Lady Wisteria, and moves past the duo to enter Petunia's room.
The pair make haste towards the courtyard, unafraid of the laughter echoing throughout the hall as they get closer and closer to the source of the commotion.
