"I doubt there would have been anything you could have done, even if you had been trained. Jack nearly killed Uncle Shawn when Jack came after me." Her voice dropped to a whisper. She hadn't told anyone, not even Lek, about that. And she'd sworn Uncle Shawn to secrecy.

"I see Dyfrig over near Bai, so I don't know what's going on. There seems to be some sort of confusion."

"Why is he looking so angry? Should we be worried?" Wulfsen asked.

Millie nodded. "Uncle Shawn happened to stop in and managed to deflect him, since Jack was very angry still from Uncle Shawn and Uncle Aron keeping him from Pinja when he first arrived."

"Probably. At the very least, we should go find out what's going on."

"I should have killed Jack. Got him when he was being held in the cell." Lek said. "So many could have been spared."

"You're not a killer, Lek. It's not in you. And if you did, then you would be no better than Jack."

"No doubt." She slipped her hand into his larger one. "Let's go."

Wulfsen unhappily walked towards the cook and hedge wizard.

'OH, that's not what I meant. I meant his violent, murderous ways," Millie said, turning red herself.

"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."

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."
