Sileas clutched Wulfsen's arm. She hoped the floor around the hole would remain steady. She glanced around to make certain her family and friends were safe.

"I'm done." Bai sunk into a chair. He wanted to crawl into bed but this was the best he could get.

Wulfsen looked down into the kitchen. "Maybe we can use the sashes from the curtains..."

Dyfrig called down the hole.

"Are you all right down there? We shall have to pass the food up through this hole. Have you some rope you can throw up? There may be some in the scullery..."

In reply to Sileas Thornblade (msg # 71):

"Maybe the men can use their shirts to make a rope and sling to bring the food up." Yehudit suggested to Sileas.

Sileas sighed and shook her head. "I suppose they could, but the knots would have to be really secure to support the weight. A solid rope would be much better."

"Unless you brought rope..." Yehudit said, eyeing one muscular wedding guest.

"Why on earth would I bring rope to my wedding?" Sileas replied with exasperation. "What we need are steps."

Lek wanted this to be over so he could be alone while being lonely. He began collecting sashes from the windows.

Sileas turned to look in the direction Questa was. "Lek?" she called out. "What are you doing?"

"Getting sashes to use to bring the food up." Lek said, dropping the sashes on the floor next to the hole. "I think it's enough."

"Excellent idea! Now, who's the best knot tier? We need them very secure so they don't come apart." She looked around the assembled guests.

Yehudit looked at the sashes. They were not very different from the sheets she used to tie together to climb out of windows to escape doing chores at the inn. Several falls into the bushes taught her the best knots. She sat on the floor and began knotting the sashes together.

Sileas blinked in surprise. It all made sense now how Yehudit managed to sneak out of the inn  all of the time. She headed over to Dyfrig. "You'll have ropes shortly."

Lek walked back to one of the windows. He pushed the drape aside so he could look out.

Dyfrig found a bench to act as a platform and attached the sashes to it.

"We just need some stout fellows to haul away, now."

Sileas turned to Wulfsen. "Why don't you and Lek help with that?" She raised up on her toes and whispered in his ear, "I'd like the chance to watch you flex your muscles."

Wulfsen blushed, but he grinned too.

"Lek, come over here and help." Wulfsen called to his page.

He took off his dress jacket and neatly hung it over a chair. He loosened his collar, then removed his cuff links, dropped them in a pocket, and rolled up his sleeves. He stretched his arms and shoulders, flexing his muscles for Sileas's benefit.

Lek wiped his eyes and turned from the window. He had no appetite, but the sooner the feast was served the sooner this could all be over and he could leave. He went over and took up one end of the makeshift rope.

Sileas sat down in the chair and made herself comfortable. She smiled, watching her husband move about, thoroughly enjoying the view.

Yehudit forced herself to look away. This was her best friend's husband- not for her to look at! She knew she should not have come.
