Yes. A harsh man. It can’t be… Greyfalcon…! Our thieves show up in the very same place Greyfalcon does? Here, of all places? When was he here? And why? Was he hurt? A while ago. Three moons at least. And not hurt. He wanted to see the pigeons. Sir Drake! Y-You’re up late, tumbler. You Caught me red-handed! Just sneaking a bite from the kitchens. It’s hungry work, ours is. And of course there’s that filthy monkey to feed. Ungh... Sir Drake…? You don’t look well. I-I think it’s something I ate. Or maybe… Sir Drake…?

We don’t need any more bouts of conscience interfering with your duties to the throne. Until you can prove that you’re worthy of wearing that uniform, you’ll be confined to the palace. Now be back about your business… All alone, Drake…? Sorry, Majesty? I asked if you were all alone. None of my other Dragons with you this evening? No, sire. They rode out with Master Greyfalcon on some sort of errand. Hm. Did they now? Know what it was about? No, sire. I’m not… trusted… with that kind of information.

Though, try as I might, I haven’t been able to discover where Greyfalcon has it hidden. As you might expect, it’s difficult for me to move around without calling attention to myself. And possibly damaging to me and to the crown. But you… You’re on guard all night. And with Greyfalcon and the other Dragons gone, you could search high and low without risking notice. If the letter still exists, as you suspect, sire, it will be in your hands before sunrise. I’d like to get started right away. It’s… It’s personal.
