Better Left Unsaid

Countess Decara Zhaynd
Countess Decara Zhaynd was shaken awake, her chambermaid nervously apologizing for waking her while handing her a scroll bearing the Inquisitor Aclair’s seal.  Seeing his sigil ran a cold chill down the Countess’ spine but she assured the chamber maid she had acted properly, sitting up in her bed grasping the scroll.  Waiting until her servant’s departure from the room the Countess broke the seal reading of the Duke’s murder and her summons to Bouvet Keep where they would form a council to pick the new Duke. Unspoken but understood by the Countess was the Inquisitors expectation that her vote would be put behind whichever candidate Zaid Aclair supported.
