Rose petals of all colors fell from the trees as Bellaban and Corvus kissed and the crowd erupted into applause. Mayor Meredith looked up at the sky and wondered where the petals came from. The roses in her hair seemed intact. They fey began partying immediately, and some Satyrs shuffled to Derrik's side of the aisle to see who was in the mood for more personal entertainment. She sighed.
"Just another part of being human, correct?" Meredith turned, startled at the Emissary offering her another cup of tea, which Meredith drank in one shot. "The Queen is growing impatient, but patience is your virtue, Meredith." Meredith notices the Emissary's head has no facial features. "The Queen wishes to meet you. But you will not survive the encounter."
Meredith frowns, unsure of the message. "Didn't I... forgiveness?" She stammers. "What did I miss?" The Emissary strains to turn to her.
"The sooner you shed your humanity and consume me, the sooner we can stop this charade." The Emissary's body withers away into a mass of roses before blowing away across the wind.
