Hagen nodded his head slightly toward the Orphean. “And your hand still holds a place of honor in my home.” A subtle reminder of how much control he had in this meeting never hurt. The hand remained in a locked and hidden vault that not even Albert was aware of. His little collection of bargaining chips had grown quite large over the years and he held its existence close to his chest. “I would have word with you Kassaah. There is something that confuses me and I would like some clarity on the matter.”
“Come with me Dark One. We will speak where more civilized ears need not listen.” Kassaah turned and walked back into the darkness, not waiting to see if Hagen followed.
