I moved quickly around the Khelid and knelt beside Aleksander, bowing my head as low as I could without putting it in his lap or his plate. ” “My lord . ” I almost choked on the words that tried to tumble out of my mouth.

As they prodded and poked self-importantly, I heard the disconcert ing sounds of glass breaking and cursing from behind the door.
