Idryth rested her hand on the pommel of her sword, releasing a long breath. She blinked, making her already red eyes assume the vertical pupil of a dragon. "This castle deserves a dragon beneath its roof," Idryth said, turning on her heel and walking to Emilia's left. "As you no longer hold claim to that title, I see no reason why I shouldn't keep your spot warm; metaphorically of course."

She walked to the wall to Emilia's left and leaned against it with her arms folded over her chest, lips curved in a grin and eyes glowing. "I quite like it here, so I'm staying."

Emilia lifted an eyebrow, smile unchanging. "Don't flatter yourself- your family has no real clout." The woman walked to the throne, placing her hand on the armrest. "Tell me, when a king goes missing, does the royal court place a peasant on the throne?"

"That's not what's happened here," the dragoness said, stepping away from the wall. "Time for you to listen because I think you need to be hit with the truth, as cold as it might be." She walked around the room at a slow pace, something that always helped her to keep her cool.

She glared at Emilia, a feeling of annoyance growing towards the woman. "When a king goes missing, the royal court would look to his heir or a family loyal to the throne. Unfortunately for you, you have no heir, nor a loyal follower. Your kingdom has fallen, Miss Black-Hearth, and when a kingdom falls, it's free reign."

Idryth stopped, ridding herself of the glare and blinking away the reptilian eyes. "I would be more than happy to stand by you still, but I won't lower myself to be your servant. Would a queen throw away the only one left who is loyal to her because of something as petty as a bath?"

Emilia froze, the smile slowly fading from her face. She looked at Qiosara, then at her own feet. The woman blinked twice, a few stray tears falling from her eyes. Her hands clenched into fists, then released.

She looked at the dragon, her lips twisted into an odd grimace. "You're right..." she muttered. "Forget it, I was being stupid."

Idryth actually felt a twisting feeling in her gut that she assumed could only have been guilt. What the hell? She thought. I told the truth! Why...do I feel...bad?

She rubbed the back of her neck, her brows and slight frown indicating that she was upset. "If you want my advice," she said quietly, "start with a bath. I'll help you, but you're drawing it. Just take a bucket and we'll collect water. It'll be quick with both of us, then I'll heat it for you when you have enough."

"I'll do it myself." Emilia said flatly, cutting the dragon off mid-sentence. She turned slowly, beginning to walk away. "You've done more than enough..."

You bitch and moan about me fixing a bath, the dragoness thought, then reject my offer to help? What the fuck?

Instead of causing an issue about it, Idryth just let Emilia walk away. What did she care? If the woman wanted to do it herself, so be it! That's how it should be anyway!

"Miss Black-Hearth," Idryth started before Emilia was out of the room. "It won't always be this way."

Emilia stopped, turning her head. "No." she said darkly. "It won't be." 

"Fuck you." the woman thought bitterly. "How dare you be... right?"

With that she would disappear into the hall, heading towards the citadel's bathing area. Upon reaching it and walking inside, she felt her heart sink even lower into her chest then it had already been.

The bathroom was... In a state of disrepair, to say the least. The fountains that had fed the bath weren't working anymore, with only one even producing a trickle of water. The walls and floor were covered in mildew, and the bath itself was filled with green, stagnant water. 

"Well then" Emilia thought. "This is a problem, isn't it?"

Walking out of the room, Emilia poked her head back into the throne room. "Qiosara, dear?" she said in an obnoxiously sweet voice. "I've changed my mind, I would like your help."

The woman disappeared for a moment, and Idryth sat on the ground against a wall. She placed her sword next to her, as sitting with a blade wasn't exactly the most comfortable. Her fingers gripped at the roots of her golden hair, her red eyes blinking back to the reptilian appearance.

The dragoness tilted her chin upward and started blowing dark smoke rings into the air. She held her finger in front of her mouth, breaking each ring as it came out.

Her attention was drawn when Emilia's voice reappeared. I didn't think she had that disgusting tone in her... Idryth thought, grimacing. With a slight sneer, she got to her feet again, sheathing her sword and ridding herself of the vertical pupils. Now she wants help.

"Come on," she said, sweeping her arm forward. "Lead the way. We need four buckets, or at least three. Where were the servants' quarters?"

Emilia blinked twice. "Shit." She had, of course, been raised to believe that a good servant should go entirely unseen by their employer- she had no idea where the servant's quarters were, or if the citadel even had any.

"Mmm, yes." Emilia said. "Right this way." She'd lead the dragoness deeper into the citadel's maze-like hallways, a confident spring in her step. "We'll find them eventually, no need to tell her anything."
