"Everyone would have been better off if he died in his cell." Lek said. "Next time I meet someone like him I won't give him a chance to hurt someone again."

"And here's the bride and groom." Bai said. "Take your pick; Safety and no food, or feast and risk demons invading the hall. Your idiot uncle distracted me when I was preparing the wards so the kitchen has been cut off."

Millie gasped. "Lek! You cannot act as judge, jury and executioner!"

Sileas looked at Wulfsen and then Bai. "We can't stay in here forever, Bai," Sileas whispered. "Can't they be reset outside the keep?"

"The barrier is just around the Hall, it was supposed to include the stairs down to the kitchen so they could bring the food up." Bai shoved his hair back from his face. "I can try pushing it so they can get down to the kitchen but there's a good chance of the barrier collapsing if I push on it. I was hoping to keep it up until your wedding festivities were over so a bunch of demons wouldn't come in causing mayhem..." He though for a moment. "It would be easier to make a big hole in the floor and have the food brought up through that."

"Someone should have with Jack. We already knew what he was, what he did, what he wanted to do. Instead of executing him he was just held in a cell until he got up and caused even more pain. We would have been better off killing him right away." Lek's eyes teared up.

"How long will it take you to reset your wall of force?" asked Dyfrig, who was thinking about the feast that was ready to be served.

"Or can you extend the existing one so that I can fetch the feast? What is this perceived threat anyway?"

Dyfrig wasn't sure that there even was such a thing as a demon. And anyway, didn't they have guards to protect people within the castle... which itself had walls. That should keep any bogey-man out.

"Resetting the entire barrier can take hours. I can try pushing the barrier to include the stairs but that could cause the whole thing to collapse." Bai said. "It's to keep out the demons that would love to pee on the main course. If your main course is free of demon urine the wards are working."

"I don't think there is enough room for a whole, the people and the tables." She glanced at Wulfsen. "Should he just drop the walls? Can your men hold back magical trouble?"

Millie grew worried. It was one thing for Lek to kill someone in self defense, or to protect another. It was quite another to sound so...bloodthirsty. "Lek. You've changed."

"I could make the hole right here." Bai said. "Only servants come to this part of the hall, and we're right above the stairs here."

"If I have it's for the better." Lek said. "I knew Jack was bad, I had a good idea of what he had done, I knew where to find him. But I didn't do a thing about it. I should have."

Millie wasn't at all certain she liked this change in Lek. He was becoming a completely different person from the brother she knew and loved.

Lek's eyes glistened. "I hate what Jack did to Pinja. Nobody should suffer like that."

"I know and I agree." Millie let out a small sigh and clasped her hands. She couldn't imagine what the delay with the food was. She wanted to get the reception over and back to her room.

Lek wished he could just leave too. He wanted Sileas and Wulfsen to be happy, but this whole thing was miserable for him.

Aislyn glanced over at the twins, then turned to Nelek. "Nelek, our children are miserable. Should we maybe speak with Lysistrata? I think she is still matchmaking."

Nelek frowned. "Didn't she throw herself at your father when he tried to get her to match Aron with someone?"

"Yes, she did. I think she truly loved him. I often wondered if he should have given her a chance. She may have made him happy, unlike Mama." Aislyn glanced at the twins again. "It makes my heart hurt seeing them this way."

"I know." Nelek said, rubbing Aislyn's shoulders. "I guess we can have Lysistrata try."

"If you can make a hole so that we can fetch the food..." said Dyfrig.

"I don't think any demons have pissed on the feast... but right now, it's outside your wall of force, so if such being exist and they have bodily functions, they could have."

"The kitchen is directly below us. The stairs are cut off but not the kitchen." Bai made a large circle on the floor with his staff and rocks began coming out of the floor and neatly piling on the floor beside the hole. There was a sawing noise and a neat circle of wood came from the hole. Bai looked down into the kitchen.

Dyfrig went to peer down the hole.

"I suppose we could improvise some kind of lifting mechanism to get the food up... has anyone got some rope?"

Part of his mind wanted to gibber at this flagrant display of magical force, but his more practical side was taking over.
