He Who Swallows the Stars

One drink wasn't enough. Neither would ten. What he had gone through and needed to cover up....
Sir Austengarde wanted to do with no more of these political games. Sure, the Grand duke needed to know about the death of his bastard still born daughter... whose lifeless body, covered in blood and birthing sweats, still gave the mordecai chills.

He knocked back his fourth drink, one that was already having the room spin. Zannrick had made his way back to the party as discretely as he could, avoiding any formal interactions as he pushed through the crowds. He avoided the dance hall and anywhere else he'd be easily approached. Even the veranda, with it's fresh array of drinks, was too obvious.

No, he took homage elsewhere, in a far off corner far away from the crowds. He had picked a servant at random to bring him his drinks, and ordered him to keep them coming. He didn't want to be sober and remember any of this. Perhaps it was selfish of him, but Zannrick wanted to be selfish. The Grand Duke's orders were to enjoy himself. He had already failed on that and there was no coming back from that damn bloodied scene.

He slammed his glass down on the serving tray when the servant came back, his icy blue eyes glaring at the other as he saw the world swimming. I twas becoming hard to tell if there was a fresh drink on the tray or not. And Zannrick swayed as he tried to grab at a drink that may or may not have been there.

"Keep the tray still," he growled.

Shyirin sure did hate these parties. All the higher ups got drunk sometimes and became pissy and pretty agitated depending on the person of course. He still saw the opportunity as well: sometimes drunks were not as uptight and could slip up with secrets.But the dukes guard dog was too good of an opportunity to miss!

Shyirin was running back a forth to get more drink for the drunk mordechai. Eventually he did it so much that he just brought over two trays. One for the empty bottles and pints and one with a couple mugs of fresh drink. The mordechai put his drink on the one meant for the drinks. Okay.

Shyirin handed him one of the full mugs, "Of course sir." He took the empty mug and put it on the empty platter. He would get more drinka for this drink if he was told to. Anything he says could be important to the duke which meant it was important to the mages. "I have plenty more drinks sir. Just say the word and you'll get them."

Man this whole thing gave him a head ache. The noise and the talking and just being a servent. He would much rather be a merchant somewhere like his parents but things don't happen like that. He wanted to help the mages in however way he could.

"Good." he growled, holding onto the mug with a snarl.

There were few expressions Zannrick showed- and it seemed his more hot-headed side was blooming. He gripped his drink hard and knocked back the entire thing in just a few gulps. Wiping off his lips, he slipped back against the wall where he leaned. He should have chosen to drink somewhere with a table. At least it'd be easier to keep himself standing. And he was still in full armor. But nothing less was expected of the Grand Duke's primary body guard.

Although sometimes he felt like his personal slave. The idea of what just happened... He could almost see the blood still staining his armor, perhaps there might have been a speck or two left, it was hard to tell. But when he noticed some froth from his drink having spilled onto his gauntlet, he swore and worked at polishing it off.

Lucky for him, he was obsessive at his job. Not a drop of blood was left on his armor after that incident... It still didn't mean he couldn't believe it was still there. As he was rubbing off the froth, something red caught a glint on his armor and he momentarily panicked, and worked at rubbing it off with an exasperated sigh.

"Damn her if I'm still layered in child's blood," came his angered whisper, one he didn't realize he should have been a bit more careful with. But who else was around to hear? The servants that did work in the castle- most already knew about Medina- the Grand Duke's whore on the side. They might even be privy to knowing she was with child. But no one, except those who had been in the room, could hvae known she had given birth just moments ago-
and a still birth...

Not even the Grand Duke knew this yet. Which was on eof the many reasons Zannrick took to drink. It sent him over the top- and even as far away as he was, the music seemed to follow him. To prim. too proper. He itched for anything else.

So the Duke did have a child to someone else! What Zannrick just said confirmed it. Very interesting and it proved the whispers he heard while walking on a small errand for a guest. Man this would prove to be a thorn in the Grand Duke's side thats for sure. And what helps is that Zann might not even remember what he said he was so drunk.

Nothing better then a drunk unknowing informant, still he didn't want to ruin his chances so he stayed quiet. He let the guard dog do what he wanted and didn't say a peep about the child, "Sir." Shyirin handed him a napkin. He may have got all the blood of his armor but the scent still remained for his nose hitting it like the smell of a skunks spray.

He made a serious mental note. Whenever he could he would write a small note or a letter to someone about whatever he learned here tonight and go back under cover disappearing again for who knows how long before writing again. He waited for the word to hand him another drink.

He noticed the clothe offered and gave the servant an accusing glare, before yanking it from him and moving to wipe at his armor. Had the damned servant heard him? And what did he say? Zannrick was having a hard time keeping focused and he wasn't sure guzzling down more drinks would cure it. He was still  on duty, after all and with his mind swaying...
He shook his head at the offered drink.

"Bring me a fresh mug of water," he commanded. He needed to sober. And fast.
