One day later.

"The first party for the winter season. Do you think it will go smoothly?" Alessandra asked as she and Edgar walked up to the home they were invited to.

"Tobias will be attending with Hazel so anyone would have to be a fool to embarrass themselves in front of royalty. There might be a lot of nasty words said under one's breath and forced smiles but other than that, the party will end well. It is the same every year," Edgar replied.

He held Alessandra's hand to keep her close since Caleb was not there. Invitations to this party were strict and only the names of the people on the letter were allowed in. Guards were present to keep the guests safe but since they weren't his men, Edgar did not trust they would do a good job.
