The duke came back with the guard that was sent to fetch him. He approached Talanvor first, to find out why he was summoned. The plump, yet regal man wore his age well, though more than a few wrinkles crowded his face. "For what reason have I been summoned, Talanvor?" He asked with a tired sigh. "I thought we concluded all business just a little while ago."

"I'm sorry to disturb you, my lord. There is something urgent that must be addressed however," Talanvor spoke to the duke.

"Alright." the duke responded. "What is this about then, Talanvor?" He wanted to keep this conversation as short as possible. There was much work to do in his study and every distraction merely proved to keep him from finishing for the day.

"My son and his companions have come across a plot to steal Mycen's egg, for what ends, I do not know," Talanvor began. "The egg is already in possession of a thief, and he is to deliver it to a lord. However, we know nothing more than the name Mur-Cavendrel. They are hoping that you may know this name as a lord from another duchy."

"Mycen's egg?" The news came as a bit of a shock to the Duke. He pushed past his initial shock to see if he could recall the name Mur-Cavendrel, however the name was hard to remember, then it came to him. "I believe a family in Northern Moss has that moniker, however other than that, I'm not too familiar with them. There is still the issue of why they would do such a thing, if this rumor is real." The duke sighed. "However, I'd like to talk to your son and his friends first. There seems to be a lot of strange rumors going around the courts and the streets lately, and perhaps we can sort out whether or not this rumor is worth pursuing."

Talen stepped forward at that and greeted the duke respectfully by placing his hand over his heart and bowing at the waist. "I'm am Talen Drecloud, my lord," he introduced himself. "What is it you would like to know?"

"Ah, so this is your son, Talanvor." The duke said with a small smirk. "Very well, Talen, could you explain how you came about this information? How reliable would you say that this information is? Has any of it been confirmed by anything close to a reliable source?"

"My lord, we met Mycen herself." Talen looked up at the duke, conveying the gravity of his statement. "She has charged us with the mission to retrieve her egg."

The duke took a step back subconsciously. "Mycen herself?" He repeated quietly. "I understand that much. So it was Mycen herself that dropped the name Mur-Cavendrel?"

"Actually, it was a letter that found it's way to us," Talen replied. "It said that a golden egg would be delivered to Lord Mur-Cavendrel and that the mother was distracted. We didn't know what it meant, until we crossed decoy wagon carrying a false egg. Mycen followed it and met us."

The duke nodded. "Could the letter have been planted, and by some coincidental happenstance you managed to come upon the very decoy set for Mycen to-" The duke stopped mid sentence and laughed. "This seems all too coincidental to me. The letter comes into your possession, and then you stumble upon the decoy, by accident, I might add. Much like, the coincidence that managed to bring the very 'assassins' sent to kill me to my doorstep to return Mycen's egg to her." The duke shook his head. "Suspecting a Mossian lord for something this grievous..." The duke's shoulders heaved with a heavy sigh. "I know urgency is of the utmost importance in this matter, but allow me some time to digest this story and bring it up in front of the court of lords tomorrow. If by some chance this story isn't true, and we presumptuously act upon false information, the possibly innocent Mur-Cavendrel family's reputation and name could be beyond repair."

Eliamn frowned. She didn't like the Duke laughing away what they had gone through, but figured there was little she could offer back which wouldn't be a caustic reply. She clenched her jaw, fisted her hands and kept her peace.

Talen was disappointed, but he acquiesced to his lord. "Very well then, my lord," he said, and bowed again.

Aiden shared a glance with Naclia. This was no help. Or was it? The duke had told them that he knew of a Mur-Cavendrel family in the north. They didn't need to wait around, they could just ride north until they found some news of the family. When they got closer to the family's holdings, then they would be able to ask locals about where to find them. Aiden kept silent, but as soon as they were out of earshot of the duke, he'd propose they just leave on what leads they had.

"Well, your Lordship, if you have any further need of us, we shall be guesting at the Drecloud Manse for the night." Eliamn offered, hoping to steer the matter away from them. She didn't want to be in the castle anymore.
