This Malathorn, how deep in your lord's counsel is he? Would we be able to receive an audience without him being present? asks Elmador It'd be easier to just set Mirrin loose on the bastard and have done with it he thinks to himself supressing a sigh for having to take the harder, more moral path.
And where is Malathorn staying should we wish to have a, erm, quiet word with him?
I'll put in a word with Even-The-Stones-Listen and see what he can do to get you that audience, but the King has been rarely sighted without the dark elf in his ear. Last time he walked the town, he even gave Malethorn a tour of our quarry, the armory, and the hall of the gods. If my husband had still been here, he would have argued against that, surely. Malathorn is staying in a house not far from the palace. Harvald can point it out for you."
