Almost a year. It had almost been a year since Ailred and Queen Kay had spoken.... after that... horrible incident. Ailred had thought about the Queen, but there were a number of reasons why he hadn't spoken to her. One of which was... they weren't really friends... and Eddak had a fondness of the Queen, and he just felt it was right not to mix into the situation. Ailred had been pondering what to do, since he had been given ownership of Galderra Royal Treasury and made Regent of Galderra. The decision of how to come to a new ruler was coming soon, so thankfully that responsibility would be over, but he still had two companies and his organization to administrate, and it was hard. His organization had completely halted, MILSERV had near to no activity in growth, and Galderra Royal Treasury was busy keeping the city in order, while Ailred was trying to accommodate the citizens needs. So why now, did Ailred choose to see the Queen? Why when he was so busy trying to juggle responsibilities did he decide to request to see the Queen? Ailred didn't want to dismantle everything Eddak had built with his own two hands, but no one he knew could quite take the task of filling the mans shoes, either. Besides, he felt Eddak would have wanted the Queen to share in his accomplishments. Not to mention, it seemed.... Ailred had come upon a message, of some sort.
Ailred looked up as a helper approached him, asking what his business was here at the Queens palace. He stood up from a bench after pondering to himself, trying to get the energy to speak. "I would like to see the Queen, if she is available. It's quite important, but it is not urgent." He paused, however, as the helper noticed he was wielding a weapon. He grieved for a moment. Ailred wasn't carrying anything with him except that sword. Otherwise he was in a ceremonial robe, befit royalty. "It's.... nothing. It's something I need to give to the Queen. But I also need to speak with her, if she has the time, please."
