Royal Summoning to Chamber of the Nobles behind closed doors (06-08-2020)[OOC] This event follows on from the Karae Court event, which you can read the report on here. [OOC]
The lurking shadow
The Karae Tamiela Fera Fillia di Torani came out of her husband's office with a slight rustle of dress. Nothing in her gait or in her expression revealed her state of mind, to the despair of the servants on the lookout for the slightest clue.As she headed for her boudoir, the Karan conferred with the Karin Aniro who had attended the entire interview.
"Is this a joke?!" the King whistled as he stared at his son. It is not possible that such a treasure of the Kingdom, having proved to be such a formidable weapon, even if still poorly mastered, could have been stolen so easily from the very heart of our capital? Chiaera Cuirinia is just a young fool! Does she even realize the seriousness of her irresponsible behavior?"
The Karin Aniro, looking worried, held his father's gaze.
"Father, we must not bury our heads in the sawdust. If a sample of the modified seeds for your Plant Wall was stolen from us so easily, it cannot be the fault of your Royal Botanist alone. There are, definitely, breaches in our security system, and that is what we must focus on."
"I know that, my Son. After the Marauders' affair and the setting up of the warning gong, how could one doubt it?
— Sil, Father... And, also and mainly, there is all what we don't see, watching for our least weakness. What is the identity of this traitor your Chief of the Guard is looking for? Could he be our clever thief? Is he the only traitor among the guards? If this is not an isolated act, are we facing an infiltration or a plot to jeopardize your crown?
— A plot against me? I'm the Chosen One of Jena, She would never allow such a thing! Stevano exclaimed, piously joining hands."
Prince Aniro, the first Priest of Jena, slowly raised his palms in a gesture of prayer and appeasement.
"The Goddess, in Her infinite benevolence, ensures that we do not rest on our achievements. Our Destiny is traced, Father. But we must be its doers, not its victims.
— You seem quite sure of yourself, Karin!
— I am, Na-Karan! The Goddess opens my eyes and guides me on this path.
— So you dream of action?" smiled the King. So be it! I offer you the opportunity to show me your ardor: I entrust this security matter to you personally, Aniro! Don't disappoint me!"
The Prince bowed to Stevano.
"I won't disappoint you, Na-Karan. Jena Aiye! »
And he left the royal office with a confident step.
