Stevan walks through the Bazaar, dodging the strange and shady people as he navigates through the night crowd. He passes a tavern that is known for its 'Boy's nights', he notices Rentris exiting the tavern wiping his brow, sweating profusely. Rentris was acting odd, looking around to see if anyone had noticed him being there. Avail rode by him coughing loudly and snickering, almost as if he were mocking him. The young Red Eagle then turned to a stall where Lea was snoring, half dressed, wrapped in a chainmail shirt. Confused by the actions of his senior officers, he was filled with fear and regret. He then mounted a nearby horse and rode off as quickly as he could, to Emond's Field.
