The position began to change colors, turning into black unsure of how to respond to Dorvakin's answer. ''That is rather bothersome, then we cannot have you leave if your concealing extremely important information,'' Caroline announced, with Elbereth biting her bottom lip. ''What can you tell us, Drow?'' Caroline, questioned, her eyes glaring into his own.
Dorvakin started to have and angry tone to his voice as he said "I'm not telling you anything. You can torture me, keep me in prison for my entire life, make me a slave or even kill me but I will not tell."
''Alright then, what can you do for us, Elbereth?'' Caroline questioned, as Elbereth stiffened in nervousness. ''It'll be a betrayal to the kingdom, helping the Drows and being in a relationship with one, goodness what will the villagers say? Rumors only grow, princess when that occurs,'' Caroline said, pressuring Elbereth. ''Speak,'' She demanded.
Elbereth shifted her gaze, somewhat feeling a bit betrayed with Dorvakin refusal to speak. It's hard betraying you but, my people come first, Elbereth thought, fidgeting as she cleared her throat. ''A weapon, a new and improved weapon that may overpower our bow and arrows, possibly our own magic,'' She began, her eyes downward at her lap. ''It'll be a direct attack to our people, when is the attack, I do not know but, I know our army may perish, our kingdom may perish. Father and mother, your hard work will possibly be for nothing,'' Elbereth said as Caroline scoffed. ''Go, Drows, we either execute him or negotiate with the Drows and within their lands, we want them to feel safe not, threatened,'' Caroline said to the royals, the King thinking of the two options.
''But is it possible to negotiate?'' The Queen questioned as silence filled the air. Caroline sighed, her brows furrowing as she glared at the Drow. ''I'll have someone watch over him, if there is any information you can inform us about, that'll be great, sir,'' Caroline said, as she stood from our place. ''I'll have him working as a slave in the fields with the other Drows, I'll give him some information to know if he wants to live tomorrow morning, for now, he rests in the servant's quarters. My Queen, King, I'll discuss the matter with you after I send someone to return the princess to her chambers and the Drow to the servant's quarters,'' Concluding the meeting with Caroline's final statement. The five folk all left the secluded meeting room, returning into the castle's halls.
Dorvakin was pulled up from the chair and pushed to go. He walked as the person walked behind him followed. He took him to the servants quarters, freed from the handcuffs and forcibly pushed into the room.
Going in the other direction, a guard held a sword in hand, as he gestured toward the hall that leads to her chambers. Sighing, Elbereth decided to follow suit, at least Dorvakin was alive and will be working for the family's trust. Perhaps, after gaining her parents' trust only then will they consider a far better treaty with the Drows. Her mind was enticed with the ideas of the possible treaties to keep the peace between the Elves and Drows, perhaps even consider trading or conjoining the Kingdoms. Those ideas led her to rest with an open mind and with optimism to keep her at ease.
Dorvakin stood up and looked at all the servants in the quarters. He was surprised to find they were all High Elves and not Drows as he thought. All the servants just stared and tried to avoid Dorvakin as he walked to a vacant bed.
Once reaching Elbereth's chambers she sat upon her desk chair, the guard staring at her knowing well she's full of mischief. "Please, Princess Elbereth, no shenanigans this fine evening. Just rest," He said, closing the door after her leaving her with the moon and the stars. Elbereth sighed, bringing a nearby candlestick to life as the small glow emitted from it brought her warmth. She started into the light glow of the flame, her thoughts full.
Elbereth had awoken by sunrise, getting ready early wearing a light flowing pink gown. She walked down the halls, fumbling with her hands as she traveled the halls. Early morning the castle's halls began to rise with life, as maids and servants. Once down to the servants' hall, Elbereth kept an eye out for Dorvakin.
