While Deresk was finishing speaking, Uldin, who had been silent, suddenly looked very green in the face after eating a piece of fish. Sweat broke out on his face and he started breathing heavily. He then started to make gurgling, burping noises, and shoved back from the table, got up and started hobbling to the door.
"It seems master Hadderhek has had a piece of bad fish," the queen said mildly. "You, escort our esteemed guest to the latrines, then to his chambers, where he may recuperate." One of the guards, till now standing silently by the door, helped the dwarf out of the chamber.
"How unfortunate," the queen said. "Now who will-"
At that moment, a dark-haired lass in a nice dress entered the chamber, accompanied by a man with similar facial features. "Excuse me, your majesty, but my brother is here, a little late, but he is here," the lass said.
"Excellent, Hanna, thank you for showing him to us," Eisa said. "Welcome to my court, Jona. Please, have a seat and some food. We were just discussing the specifics of the issues you and your new companions will investigate."
Just after that, a lithe, gray-haired, leather-clad human man entered the chamber in a huff.
"Lyeth, I have changed my mind. We cannot afford to have you leave on this errand. You're one of our best Arbiters; we need you to stay here in the city."
With that, the willowy white-haired elf got up and left, shooting an apologetic look toward the queen before she left.
"Another one," the prince sighed. "Who else will-"
"I think this fine gentleman might," Gareth says with a grin, as another man walked in, alone.
"I take it this is your man, Gareth?" the queen says. "Please, sir, come in and have a seat and introduce yourself; Gareth speaks highly of your abilities thus far."
