Lucy was on her way back from staying with a group of fauns across the country. She was riding a horse when suddenly a bright light appeared and she felt herself being pulled through it. When the light disappeared she was on a horse in the middle of a strange street. Getting off Penelope she took her reins and walked down the street trying to get a sense of where she was. She looked around as she walked, wondering if anyone else was around or how she was going to get back.
The entire day had been quiet, despite work being stressful, it was better than moping around the Palace of Justice. Currently he was improperly seated in the library, sideways, legs slung over the arms of the chair reading a book that’d been collecting dust. Upon hearing the doors creak open on their hinges, he flinched and quickly assumed the proper position, legs crossed and sitting tall. He snapped the book shut as he glanced up to see his guards bring in a young girl. Rolling his eyes at the interruption, which admittedly relieved his boredom, he addressed her. “What is the meaning of this?”
She had been trying not to stand out as she was weaving her way through the roads to find out where she was. Lucy had no idea she was trespassing on palace grounds until two guards grabbed a hold of her and her horse. She tried to get out of their grasp before giving up. They asked her who she was and what she was doing there. As she answered, the guards didn’t believe and announced that they were taking her to see the minister. She couldn’t help but be amazed by the building as the brought her in. A part of her was afraid of what was going to happen to her as they opened the doors and she saw a man dressed in robes sitting in a chair. He looked pretty powerful, but she took a deep breath to calm herself as he addressed her. “I was simply just walking around the streets when these two men grabbed me and proceeded to bring me to you.” One of the guards stepped forward. “Sir, she was trespassing on the palace grounds. We didn’t want to take any chances.” Lucy furrowed her eyebrows slightly in confusion since she didn’t know she was trespassing.
Placing his elbow on the arm of the chair, he pressed a hand to his temple, dismissing the guards. Then, after taking a moment to examine the girl before him, jerked his head in the direction of a chair stationed diagonal to his own. “Sit, girl.” he commanded bluntly. She looked far too young to be wandering the streets on her own, and her manner of dress and stance presented no notion of her being a vagabond of any sort. He doubted she’d been intentionally trespassing, as his men had become rather touchy after the recent incident, still dreadfully fresh in his mind, but nonetheless, he proceeded in questioning her. “State your name and explain why you’ve been brought to my attention.”
