Key walks down the street, head down deep in thought. In spite of her evident disregard to the people around her, she shifts out of others way so as not to jostle anyone. She reaches down and unconsciously fiddles with one of the daggers at her hip.

Anglerond moves up smoothly in front of Key, two steps ahead and two to the left. Once his arrival at that spot Key doesn't have to shift how she moves. He smiles to himself but talks back at her without looking. "You seem agitated, are you ok Key?."
Key watches through her lashes as Anglerond slides into place. She starts to roll her eyes but stops herself, then shakes her head. She darts a glance at Te’Teh and smiles but it doesn’t reach her eyes. She hiffs out a brearh then starts to speak.
“Im agitated by this whole Arthurian thing. I want to get it all done and over with as soon as possible, but Luke is right, we need to be smart about it. It’s making me hyper sensitive to everything. Up to and incuding the thought that I will never again in my life have a moment to myself and it all for my own safety!” She shakes her head again realizing her anger and attempting to get it back in check.
To Te’Teh she says “I need to rush a letter to the library. At least I can do that right now. I figured you guys could have a drink while I write. Maybe after that we can go check to see how the house is coming. I just need to kerp moving.”

Anglerond seems a bit saddened momentarily for Key's plight, that disappears though and a smirk pops up on the left side of his face. "You think right Key, you announced your blood, you probably shouldn't ever be alone again, especially not with Artherien. Once we have in hand you might be able to get some time. You will need to adapt your life to take that into account."
He looks at her from the corner of his eye, as he smoothly 'redirects' others out of Key's way, "May I say something direct Key?"

Te'teh pats Key reassuringly, and points out a cute boy walking the other direction to her friend.
“You have an advantage though. Reginald hasn't left the city yet, he can instantly communicate with the library through his book. Now, do you want to deal with Reggie? That is its own question. Although for a gnome he is kind of cute."

Anglerond falls back so he is walking beside Key, on her left still acting as a shield. "I have helped defend nobles for more than four hundred years. In that time I have found everyone needs to find a way to relax, to blow off steam."
He seems to be watching her from the corner of his eye.

Anglerond listens to his queen, turning to watch her fully and coming to a full stop. As he hears her words, a small tightening at his jaw as he takes a much longer time then normal to answer. His answer seems weighted and measured and something that a guard would say to their ruler. "Do I have an issue with Rabbit?..."
He pauses slightly again, then clearly, calmly and with no emotion says, "No."

Te'teh's eyes narrow. “Actually I was meaning drinking or maybe some drugs. You do realize I only try to rub my groin on things 60% of the time right? Besides, fighting to blow off steam sounds a little too vengeancy, and I think we have all had a little too much violence."
Her anger is betrayed by the wink she gives Key as she bows to her.

Anglerond watches Key, she can see his brain processing the best way to approach this subject. "First, I want you to know I do not doubt why you are loyal to Rabbit. I am not trying to step into that. I even believe she might care as much as she shows."
He pauses again, looks back towards the way they came from before continuing, "I have fought drow for over two hundred years. I admit I hold biases, and it does gladden me that you don't have them. However, something about this situation sits wrong with me. I promise when I realize what I am missing I will tell you. I won't keep that from you at all."
