I woke up today feeling absolutely dreadful, I don’t think I’ve ever been this sick in my entire life. I wanted nothing more than to stay in bed, but after yesterday I felt my funds dwindling so I staggered to the guardhouse to ask again about my reward. Maybe it was sympathy because I looked on the verge of death, but the finally ponied up, they had made five arrests of well to do tax cheats and handed over quite a sum.
I was so exhausted I hired a coach to take me to the Ground and Potter to check in with Ramos Daval and Gremag. They told me they had more targets for me, I told them once again that I am no assassin but they claimed it was the only way to build trust. Even in my fevered state I was on to their game, they had no intention of doing anything other than using me to eliminate their enemies. I told them I’d think about it and get back to them. Jackanapes. I met up with Augrim to continue my lessons which helped to calm my mind a bit.
I had the coach take me back to the Cardshire where the manager reminded me that my time was up unless I had more money. I said I’d be back later to collect my things, time to find a new place to stay. I used my disguise kit and my ring to take on the appearance of an effeminate theater type – you know the kind I mean – and the paid a visit to the Electrum household. The lady of the house was only too glad to entertain me when I told her I was mounting a production of the Admiral’s Mistress. By the time Rince return home she was in quite a state of excitement about the possibility of a role.
I asked her kindly for more of her wretched tea and when she left the room I leveled with Mr. Electrum – a lead role for his wife if he framed Percy Ringle. When he balked initially I told him the reason I wanted Percy arrested is because he had taken advantage of my sister and then refused to be a man and take her hand in marriage – the cad. With that hook in his mouth he was willing to go along with the idea, for his lovely wife. And for justice.
They insisted that I stay for dinner and by the time I left it was too late to find a new place to stay. When I handed over the coin for another night’s stay at the Cardshire the smug look on the manager’s face was the last thing I needed after a hard day when I wasn’t feeling well.
