“Did you come up here to see my son?” the Baroness asked.
Dahlia nodded, even though it wasn’t true. Not that she didn’t like to see him. She came up often enough to do so. But sometimes she had an ulterior motive. And that was the real reason she was up here today. Though she hadn’t expected to be found out so quickly.
“I think he is with Fletcher in his chambers. You know where that is?”
Dahlia nodded again. The Baroness smiled at her, then returned to her drink and papers. Dahlia swallowed.
The woman looked up again. “Would you like some tea, Dahlia? Yellow chrysanthemum.”
Dahlia nodded a third time. Nemissa gestured to another seat as she gave Dahlia her cup.
Completely comfortable, Dahlia took a sip.
