Inner Ward of Anvard
You stand in the Inner Ward of Anvard. The ground is hard-packed earth, and it is open to the sky above. Wonderful aromas come wafting out from the Kitchen to the south, near the well. Huge, impressive, intricately carved doors lead to the Great Hall. Staff hurry about, in and out of their quarters, serving the Great Hall and the Council Chamber. A quieter corridor to the northeast leads walking towards their quarters seeing to other business. A guarded gatehouse curtain wall, climbing to the upper reaches of the castle.
You can go: Council Chamber <N>, Northeast Hallway <NE>, Inner
Gatehouse <E>, Kitchen <S>, Great Hall <SW>, Staff Quarters <W>,
Infirmary <NW>, Southern Stairwell <US>, Northern Stairwell <UN>
Haft stands on duty by the inner gatehouse.
Dalia enters the by the inner gatehouse, her cloak pulled close around her. It seems like a fairly new aquision instead of an as opposed to the older serviable one she’s been using.
Haft nods. “Mornin’, Dalia.”
Dalia nods to Haft. “Good Morning.”
Haft asks, “Warm enough?”
Dalia nods, “Yes. Thank you. Watch been quiet, I hope?
Haft says, “Pleasantly so.”
Dalia smiles, “That’s good. Always good.”
Haft asks, “Yep. How’s yer sister settling in?”
Dalia ducks her head slightly as Haft mentions her sister. “She’s been doing well so far. I believe.
Dalia looks as if she might add something, but hesitates.
Haft says, “Ah. Good.”
Dalia says, “I want to apologize for what happened the other day… She’s been away apprenticing and We haven’t seen each other for a while….” She holds both hands nerviously, as if to wring them. ”
Haft shifts. “Yeah, we settled that. Don’t you fret about it.”
Dalia nods, offering a small if nervious sort of smile. “Thank you.”
Haft says, “I wasn’t trying to bump you.”
Dalia says, “Oh. Of course not, No. No, I didnt think you were.”
Haft says, “Figured. You’ve got a good head on yer shoulders.”
Dalia smiles at this, pausing to sympathetically offer. “I…I’m sorry about the courior. I hope you were able to get send what you needed?”
Haft makes a face. “Eventually. I sometimes wonder if someone there doesn’t have it in for me.”
Dalia frowns sympathetically. “I..I could always take a parcel or letter, when I go…”
“No,” he answers quickly.
Dalia nods, as if she was expecting such.
Haft glances away. “I appreciate the offer,” he says.
Dalia nods, she looks away to glance around ward.
Haft doesn’t sound or look like he appreciates the offer much at all. “What’re your errands this morning?”
Dalia says, “I’ve a few garments to take down to the laundry and a mend a few things for milady.”
Haft nods. “Well, have a good day then.”
Dalia nods. “Have a pleasant watch.”
