Lily looked up at the clock that was above the door of the apartment building she lived in. Knowing she only had about 10 minutes to get to the HQ, she took off running, careful not to trip or bump into people. Thankfully, it didn't take her too long to get to the small but well maintained Silver Plum Tea house.
She made her way inside and pulled out the small badge-like pin she had and held it tightly in her right hand, waiting for the hostess to seat her.
"Good morning Lily, would you like a table in the back?"
"Oh, yes please ma'am." She said, nodding. After nearly 6 months, of course the hostess would recognize her, but it still brought her relief to know that she wouldn't get put on the spot and possibly told off for "trying to sneak into the back room." One time of that happening was more than enough for her.
"Right this way."
She followed the middle aged woman to the back room, where there was a small armoire in the corner. She opened up the door and pushed on the false back to reveal a small passageway.
"You'd better hurry. Lady Analea doesn't like it when people are late."
Lily nodded and hurried through, not stopping until she reached the conference hall. She peered inside and saw that Milliam, Lady Analea's Vanguard, was waiting at the end of the long table, in one of the two empty seats at the head.
She walked in and nodded, then quickly took a seat at the long, polished maple table. The walls were stone with purple velvet hangings, and a crested flag hung over the doorway, bearing the symbol of the Soldiers of Soare; A dragonfly with a sword running down the length of it's back.
"Good Morning, Ms. Raine" Lily said, feeling like a school kid.
"Ah, there's no need for such formalities with me. You're Lily, are you not?"
"Well, Analea should be here soon, so just sit tight. Hopefully the others will be here soon as well."
Baa baa black sheep have you any booze? No sir, no sir, I'm a....sheep~
