- SHIMMER’S POV
- Iris seemed very shocked to see me making some tea in the kitchen. I could not blame the woman, for I hardly ever made anything in the house. Cooking was never my thing; I had neither the time nor interest for it. Four or five of my staff stood by and watched me, with shock and great anticipation written on their faces. Of course it was a rare morning for them all; seeing me making some tea. Iris dismissed them, leaving only the two of us in the kitchen.
- I set the cup and teapot neatly on a tray. I added a teaspoon and some sugar. Gently, I lifted the tray and headed towards Arianna’s bedroom. We were already near her bedroom, for I used a kitchen in Arianna’s wing. Iris knocked a bit before pushing the door open. Looking very pale and sad, Arianna was walking out of her closet. She must have just taken a shower.
