(Act 2, Chapter 13)
Cerven managed to convince his guards to allow him a brief bit of time to enjoy a meal and relieve himself before heading off to the ballroom. In truth, he just wanted a moment of privacy between himself and Kuvilo. But he couldn’t keep the trio of guards at bay for long, so off they went to the ballroom.
The ballroom was yet another elaborate room in the imperial palace. It was similar in dimensions to the throne room, though it was built off on the west wing. A series of tables were lined up beside columns on the far sides of the ballroom. The second story had room for more tables, as well as a place for a band to play. A few balconies could be seen on the far corners of the ballroom.
Cerven and Kuvilo strode through the doors, but the three bodyguards came to a stop. Cerve
