The table stood and bowed to him at once, ”Sir! ”

His blue eyes gleamed in pride. This was the difference between true guards and those kids outside. ”Ease, Im here on official business but the King isn behind me. ” The group laughed and slumped back into their chairs.

”So what brings you here to our lower world? ” Asked Anita. Her light brown eyes alight from the lively banter between fellow guards. She had cut her hair again, it stuck up at odd angles. Clearly she had trimmed it with one of her daggers.

”The Heir. ” All five of them sat up straighter. All the guards knew of the Heir. Many had even seen her while she was out of it. Sila and Sal were twins. Their eyes were an odd brown yellow the only thing that told on them. They were not full Drake. Both had cut their brown black hair into a bob. Their cheekbones were just a little higher than the rest. The other two were Jackson, Jack, and Tim. They both sported light brown hair and had the towering six foot six height common among Drake males. Jackson had blonde highlights and dark brown eyes with hints of red flecks. Tim had plain hair and plain eyes to match but he did not look bad. A few maids had taken him up to the hayloft.

”What about her? ” Tim asked. As plain as he was it was his voice that called the maids from their skirts.

”She is in need of some guards who actually know how to guard. Whos up? ”

The group looked among themselves. One or two would not be enough. Sure there were more guards sleeping in the bunks farther in. Most of them were older though. Or young enough to try and talk the young heir into a roll in the sheets. No one knew how well that would end. While the King would not say anything or even do anything. Fellow guards would find a way to remind them that one should not become a charges plaything. With a sigh they nodded and stood. Grabbing their swords from where they leaned on the walls they asked, ”Where is she?

With a smile Jarmey said, ”Follow me. ”
