A dull rumble shakes the room, and you see a wave of distorted reality -- like a heat shimmer, really -- flow from one end of the room to the other. The twins makes faces, and you nod absently, “I have no intent to harm you, or even take back what you’ve managed to gather. But I do feel that it might be wise to talk in a less... rapidly deteriorating location. Don’t you agree?”
“Well I--” Lann begins, “--woah!” he finishes, brown leather boots thumping onto your red velvet rug. His sister wavers beside him, unsteady from the quick transport, and places a hand on his shoulder to catch her balance before looking around in shock.
“Now then, that’s better don’t you think?” A smile, and you seat yourself behind the huge black oak desk. You wave them to the pair of comfortable chairs sitting in front of it, but they don’t oblige, instead remaining standing with their eyes darting about the room and a deathgrip on their weapons.
“Well, no matter. Stand if you wish. I simply wish to ask you questions regardless.” You lean back into the plush comfort of your high-backed chair and appraise them slowly before continuing, “I have been watching you for quite some time. Quite some time. And I have begun to wonder... what is it you desire? What is it /you/ want? You follow the paladin, Lady Tissa Voldire... but you don’t seem to have any impetus to be there. So then, why do you follow?”
“That’s a good question,” Liss says with a slightly annoyed edge, glancing to her brother. He simply rolls his eyes and sighs before responding, “She got us out of Mardana-Fel, and we don’t have anything else to do. Why do you care what we want?”
You shrug in reply, and the twins glance to each other before Liss speaks up, “You first then, what do you want? Why have you been watching us?”
