((So, I'm assuming Lapin is on her way. For the sake of her head, I certainly hope so. The Queen is not in a good mood now.))
The Queen of Hearts was sitting on her throne. She twirled her sword at her side, frowning. She had sent off a treaty to Spades of all places. Yes, the queen of Spades was her sister, but Spades and Hearts never got along. The history of their rivalry ran deep. Still, with the options presented...
"Your Majesty?" A guard poked his head in. He saw her sword and gulped. "You have a messenger."
The Queen lowered her sword as the messenger walked in. He dropped to one knee before the Queen and bowed.
“Your Majesty, I come with a message from Queen Maeve of Spades. I’ve been ordered to place this directly into your hands.” He drew the scroll from its place on his cross belt. “If you would accept it, your Majesty, I would be most honored.”
She raised a brow. Her sister, sending a message so soon after her last one? Her eye twitched. Something seemed off. She did not like the feeling she was getting.
She stood, holding her sword ready at her side. The sun streamed in through the windows, making the metal shine. She stepped down off the dais, eying the messenger. She strode over to him, watching him for any movement. Gingerly picking up the scroll, she took a step back as she examined the seal. It was indeed Maeve's.
"My messenger is currently... Occupied. If Maeve expects a reply, you shall have to wait."
