Melody took the key and smiled.
"I have nothing against rules, just surprised is all."
She ascended the stairs and looked for the room that matched the number on her key. She then went in and set her bag down, then pulled out a ribbon and a comb to tie her hair up. Along with that, she also pulled out a small pouch.
Sitting on the bed, she emptied the contents of the pouch: A small wet stone, a couple of bottles, a folded paper containing a reddish chalk, and a cleaning cloth.
She went to work on cleaning and sharpening her dirks, making certain that they were shiny and deadly.
