The young maiden arrived to the bath set instructed by the other maids. She had several interesting bath salts for the young Alessia. She picked them for their fragrance and what it can do to the skin, some can make her skin smooth, others can help with her skin feel rather very clean. She walked in the bath area which was only restricted for Alessia, it had most of her belongings which suited her needs.
Velayna walked over to a level and pulled it down slowly. A sound of water whooshing from the wall poured like a river, filling the large tub with hot water. Velayna walked over to the tub and examined the bath salts, she poured the one with an interesting fragrance, another with minerals that could help her feel relax and finally, the last set that could help Alessia wih her magic. Velayna looked around and sees none of Alessia's favorite towels were hanging. She takes in a deep breath and exhales slowly. "What kind of housekeeping doesn't know when to leave the young lady's towels in her own bathroom?" She muttered to herself as she walked to Alessia's room.
Knocking on the door three times, she waited until she was allowed. Once she heard a faint voice, she entered and closed the door behind her. "Lady Alessia, you bath is set and ready." She walked over to the linen closest and finds her personal towels inside. She grabbed a few clean ones and waited by the door. "So the Emperor will be arriving today?" She asked curiously of course, and followed the young daughter to the bathing area. "I am sure the Captain of the Guard will keep the perimeter in check, no doubt his experience is quite fascinating." She smiled slightly before tugging the hilt of her sword hanging out. "Just wished I was allowed to wear something more...comfortable." She released a sigh once more. "Well, we better make sure your appearance will be an appealing." She joked of course about how she heard of Alessia's bachelors had tried to ask for her hand.
Hours passed, the rain stopped and soon an army arrived to the region. Marching in a unison and gallantly. The General himself lead the forces of mixed species from other regions. Their armor resembled one another, thought the ranking officers would wear a cape around their armor. Blue for Sergeants, Red for the Lieutenants, and Black for the Captains, but for the Commanders wore white around theirs. They were behind the General, following him on their horses which were armored from head to toe. Once they had entered the Lord's home, the forces stopped and started surrounding the area. Ultimately, formed a line on the side of the road for his Majesty grand entrance.
Another force arrived, but this time. It was the Emperor's royal guards approached head first. The Royal Guard's armor was different, and mostly all women. Their armor was more flexible and were able to use their magic to defend the Emperor from both melee and magic abilities. Between them, in the middle row, was the Emperor. An Elven Emperor. He had a smile on his face once he entered the Lord's home. He looked around and continued to smile, he even kept it on as he sees his old friend. "Artonis Zurbank...my old friend."
The Lord bows in a graceful manner in front of the Emperor, and the others had done the same as well. "It is good to see you as well, old friend." Then the two chuckled. "Welcome to my home, come we have grand feast ready for your arrival."
The Emperor gets off of his mount slowly. Walking to the Lord with posture, "Sounds good." He walked up to the Lord and embraced him a hug. "It is good to see you again." The Lord returned the embrace and smiled, "The feeling is mutual." Once the two had finished with their reunion, the Lord introduced his family and Alessia as last. The Emperor chuckled, "Didn't you break the General's son arm before?" He asked curiously, looking back at the Wolven General, whom growled lowly. "He healed." He said roughly.
