"Come on then, let's get you a bowl," Roxanna said, gesturing toward her private quarters. "Let's go, Nazar! If you're feeling up to it and like I'm actually safe inside my own castle, you're free to take this vial to Arkadios."
Roxanna held up the vial, offering it to Nazar if he so chose to give it to Arkadios. It wasn't a command, but if he wanted to feel more helpful than just protecting the Countess, he was welcome to.
It was only a moment after Holly's apology that the sound of glass hitting stone revealed Maximum Sky and Nuala Delmy's little hiding place. Falkor turned to them, a quizzical expression quite visible in his eyes before turning back to Holly. He locked his gaze with hers very strongly.
"It's quite all right, Mystic Holly," Falkor said lightly as he took the vials. It was evident that there was a hint of friendly mockery in his voice. His typically bland eyes were playful and dancing. And then he did something unexpected.
Casting a quick glance at the spot where Max and Nuala where trying to remain hidden (but ultimately failed due to noise and not visibility), he looked back at Holly with an expression never witnessed before on Falkor's face: gentle kindness. And then he asked, "Do you need help distributing the rest of these to those who need them?"
Sabre looked up at Falkor with surprise. She wasn't really sure what to think. In fact, she was so shocked that she just stared at him for a good moment, until Holly replied. And then she shook her head, utter confusion on her face, and walked away.
