A hand on her shoulder brought her out of her thoughts. She glanced behind her, a pale face dimly lit by the green fires around them. "Sightseeing?" a feminine voice came from the woman behind her, long brown hair in a loose ponytail and a regal black dress worn over her lanky body. "It's been a while, 7 years I suppose." she moved her hand from the flame, which centered itself back into position. "Would you look at that- seems you've turned into an adult while I wasn't looking." The other woman moved towards the balcony door, opening it. "You definitely haven't." See quickly calculated the number in her head- This woman's parent's had died when she was 7, upon which she was forced to take up there duties with help from an adviser. That was also the time the first woman was sent away for her training, making the second one 3 years younger than her. "It would seem you're only 14 yet." she moved into the halls of Magnhildr, the second woman leading her. "Hush Ivory- there's a summit about to take place in the main hall." Ivory followed suit as she was led through the fortress. She always found her name amusing since she was a Blood Born. She looked at the younger girl in front of her- she had upheld her duties and her parent's ideals despite being so young. Working her hardest to make people treat all citizens the same no matter what (a sentiment they shared). She grinned slightly as the girl ordered her to pay attention when they arrived at the summit. "Yes, Duchess Menolia." Ivory walked beside her friend.
