You describe Cleophas to her "Does this accurately describe Khaless' widow?" you ask plainly.
"No, not in the least. Politicking was something she always attempted to avoid at that." Laelith responds, turning both pages.
"So, your sure that there is no connection aside from the cult tattoos?" you ask, working your hands into her shoulders.
"Th... that isnt fair" she complains, her head lolling back from the massage "and yes, aside from that there is nothing. If you were wondering about the rod, it was a mystics focus. Without it glamors become nigh impossible. Now that we have it its nothing but a plethora of gems to sell." she replies, happily
"Thats good too hear, and I'm glad that I'm able to ease this tension from you. Facing down eighty some armed men must have been daunting." you reply, finding a good sized knot to work on.
"Not at all. I was made to face worse during my travels with Khalless." she replies plainly
"Regardless of your past, were it not for Sansa I could have lost you then..." you chide Laelith, pulling her chair back from the desk "You dont need to be so reckless, Laelith." you continue, sitting next to her, clasping her hands in yours "You should trust that one of us will help you when you need it."
Laeliths face shows some conflict, as if a law she has long lived by is being called into question. "I... I will be more careful..." she finally replies, her shoulders slumping ever so slightly.
"Good" you reply, pulling her into a hug. after a few moments you place a kiss on her scarred cheek "Now, do you think you are ready to begin instructing Lena on reading this tome you are deciphering?" you ask, hopeful.
"I'm only to the middle of it, but new readers are seldom fast readers. I should be able to start today and stay ahead." she replies
>let her go now, or do you have something else for her?
