As Gilmas and Arise entered the palace, they were ushered into a sort of parlour by an attendant.
“Master Alyce will wait here until its time. Guild Master Elmer Horn is being summoned by His Majesty.”
“I understand. I’m sorry, Alise, but you’ll have to wait for me.”
Alise was left alone in the parlour.
Somewhat uncomfortable, Alise sat down on the sofa, but she still felt nervous.
”Thank you for waiting. We’re ready to start, please come this way.”
After what must have been a few dozen minutes of waiting, the same squire as before came to greet Alise.
The squire led Alice to the audience chamber.
The door was opened by the two attendants.
“Please proceed forward and stop at the sign”
“Okay thank you.”
Alise stepped into the audience chamber.
The nobles of the country were lined up on either side.
Other than the lower-ranking nobles, most of them were substitutes, but the Marquis of Odin was properly present.
The marquis signalled with his eyes.
To that, Alise nodded lightly.
As instructed by the squire, there was a mark at her feet, so she stopped there, got down on one knee, and bowed her head.
“Raise your head.”
At his Majesty’s words, Alise looked up.
