Something flickered in the noble lamia's slitted eyes, a combination of amusement and annoyance. "And what concern is it to you what happens to my servants?" There was a knock on the door and Davian entered, carrying a tray with two steaming cups of tea on a cart that seemed too large for simply a tray of tea. He placed the cups before his mistress and her visitor before heaving the statue onto the cart and taking it out of the room. Cassiopeia took a sip of her tea, her cold eyes devoid of sympathy as she continued. "I do not tolerate disobedience or disrespect in those who serve me, and those who do not. In either way, they will be punished as I see fit."


Goau maintain his stance when she answered him; managing to keep himself from flinching at her reply. He wasn't sure what she would do, but her being part animal made him reason that showing fear or weakness would only make things worse for him, and, as it was now, he would only have one chance to dodge death from this Noxian.

When the butler entered and gave them their cups, he said a quick 'Thank you' before taking a drink of it, rather than a sip. It was good, and left him wondering if it was homemade brew. As she spoke again, he moved his cup and hands to his lap and let them rest there. When she finished, he spoke his reply. "It isn't, but I was curious enough to risk asking." He replied.

"However, that does leave me to wonder if someone like says something wrong and makes you angry. Would you turn me to stone as well for doing so, or would you ask me to leave?" He asked. Being from a common family and having no experience speaking with nobility, royalty, or really anyone above him in stature, disrespect was something he often stepped on by mistake. Funny how your parents taught you respect, but didn't teach you how to avoid disrespect.

Cassiopeia's harsh gaze did not falter and she raised a brow slightly. "Do you intend to make me angry, curator?" Her tone was smooth as silk, but the sharp blade of a threat was thinly veiled in her words. A tense moment passed. Then, surprisingly, she let out a small chuckle and shook her head gently. "My ire has become legendary, it seems. I am not as quick to anger as one might think, although it does irritate me when those seeking me to simply prod me in hopes of inciting my fury find me." She casually took another sip of her tea. "I have learned to kill them without hesitation in hopes that the others will cease. It has thus far worked." She tapped a talon on the edge of the teacup and hummed thoughtfully. "I digress, the answer to your question depends on how much you anger me."

Goau let out a small sigh and took another drink of his tea, and then spoke after he had swallowed it but didn't look up as he spoke. "Lady Du Couteau. I've lost count of the number of times I've made someone angry, and nearly all of them were by mistake due to my lack of social skills." He admitted in a causal but regretful tone. "I was raised in a very different kind of environment, and so I'm sorry if I say something that would cause you anger." He explained, keeping it short as he was fairly sure she didn't care much about his life story; if at all.

He then sat up in his chair and got comfort before looking back at her and smiling a small, friendly smile. "I've heard you grew up attending parties and other gatherings. Were they all political ones, or were some of them for gatherings such as a friend's wedding or birthday celebration?" He asked, returning to the questions he had for her.

As Goau spoke about his personal life, Cassiopeia didn't bother to hide her disinterest. She flexed a taloned hand nonchalantly, watching the afternoon sunlight gleam off the sharpened gold from the large window at the far end of the room. As he shifted in his chair, her gaze flicked back to him and she lowered her talon back onto her coils. A hint of boredom slipped into her tone as she answered his next question. "I have done it all, although I have not been to many weddings. Those are few and far between." The corners of her lips curled downward in a slightly disgusted grimace. "They are such annoying affairs. After you have had one yourself, the rest tend to be rather droll."

Goau hummed thoughtfully to himself, wondering what he should say next. He wasn't here to entertain her, but he had also asked most of his questions already. It wasn't helping that he was also still a bit nervous about the petrified corpse nearby either. So, as the thought, he took a drink from his cup, downing the last of it really, and placed it on a nearby table(stand?).

"Well, thank you for your time and for allowing to meet you Lady Du Couteau, but I feel as though I've run out questions to ask." He said with a small smile before rising to feet and giving a one-armed bow. "Do you have any questions for me?" He thought to ask.

Cassiopeia straightened, growing more serious as the purpose of her calling Elise to the mansion was now the topic. "I will not mince words. I need to know the workings of the Black Rose. They have something to do with my father's disappearance and they will pay dearly for it." Her eyes were ablaze with determination and one of her taloned hands curled slightly into an angry claw. "I am willing to deal with you to make this happen. Not only will you gain the sustenance your...children require, you will also gain a powerful ally. I may not lead an underground society of mages, but I am not to be underestimated."


"As far as I can tell, you're just another human noble playing at politics." Elise inspected her fingernails in a bored fashion. "I see no reason why I should help you. I am already doing well in providing my children with food. Perhaps you are used to being able to dominate others with that tail and fangs of yours, Miss DuCoteau, but I have faced true monsters- I look at one in the mirror each morning."

She glanced up, a neutral expression on her face.

"I have no need of your political clout, your money, or your network of informants. You are bargaining for information that I might have sworn to keep secret with a paltry few corpses I could get myself for a trifling less effort than it took coming all the way up here to answer a few questions.

"Perhaps if you expect answers, you should give some yourself. What evidence do you have that the Black rose had any hand at all in your fathers's vanishing? Before you make my visit even more pointless, perhaps you should go over your evidence and explain to me what has lead you to thinking I am a reliable source?"

As Vladimir arrived on the estate grounds, a servant was ready to greet him at the gate. He was polite and courteous, standing straight with a pleasant expression, but the fear was evident in his eyes. He bowed to Vladimir as he dismounted and offered to escort his steed to the rear stables. "My mistress is expecting you, my lord. Master Jenkins is prepared to take you to her." He hurried the animal into the back, seeming relieved to not be the subject of the cold, rosy gaze.

A servant was waiting to open the door for Vladimir as he came to it, also bowing low in greeting. At the foot of the marble staircase of the atrium stood Jenkins. He gave Vladimir a rare, tight-lipped grin and nodded as he approached. "My lord. Always a pleasure to have you. Milady is expecting you." He gestured for Vladimir to follow him as he started up the stairs. "She wished to take tea with you in her personal drawing chambers. Apparently, she wishes to discuss something of importance with you." The elderly butler's tone made it apparent that he was none the wiser of what his mistress had planned-and that he did not appreciate it.


Vladimir released the animal into the mans custody, giving him the reins as he approached and simply nodded at his statement. The mans outer composure was excellent, Vlad was surprise since he had been visited with several messages from her servants lately and all of which Reginald had shared was glad not to meet him at the door. But Vlad could tell from his heart beat he was only composed on the outside, he didn't need to look the man in the eye to see that. He seemed to be happy to be away from the reaper as he left with his mount.


Vladimir nodded to Jenkins as he entered. "and it is my honor to be here." Vladimir commented eyes scanning the scene as he followed the butler up the stairs. 'Lady Cassiopeia private drawing room? he wondered about that 'and she has something of importance to share...how interesting...' he thought if they were venturing some place private it must be important, maybe the excitement Vladimir had been looking for. The butlers tone was clear, Vlad's gave a small smirk as it seemed the man longed to know what his mistress was up to. He followed Jenkins until he lead the lord to the proper room. He would wait to be allowed in since Lady Cassiopeia seemed to like such protocol.

((Greetings all. Well, since the move is currently in motion, I'm going to be replying to all of you on the new boards. I have all of your responses saved and ready to go so you don't have to worry about that. Also, as another point, when I get set up on the new boards, I will be treating the Institute as Renekton does. The League is an ancient, fallen organization that no longer exists in this world. I know this doesn't mean the best things for a couple of people that I'm RPing with, but I feel that this is the way to go in order to portray Cass to the fullest. Having said that, see you guys in our new home.))
