It felt like the world was once again much brighter and pleasant place to live in now that her master had managed to survive his illness. It took him weeks to recover fully. But under her gentle care he gained his strength back.
Now he was out so Eire took the chance to commence thorough cleaning in his rooms.
Changing his bedding, sweeping and washing the floors and dusting the furniture and airing the rooms.
Now she was pottering about humming to herself and organizing his desk. She felt so happy and energetic today. Feeling like dancing as she kept doing her chores.

Dymas was finally feeling better, it had been a rough period for him, and he surely enough still felt quite weak, but at least he was finally able to attend his first meeting in weeks. Luckily there had been no urgent matter during his absence. But apparently he had received some news for his so loyal servant, Eire.
As he entered in his room, he could see her dancing round while cleaning. He chuckled: she was surely happy that day...
He approached her silently before calling her name "Eire, my girl, I have some news for you..."

She jumped when she heard him speak behind her. Whirling around and her face blushing deep red. Wondering how long had he been there and what he had seen. Bowing to him deeply, having a chance to hide her face from him. "My lord...." She managed to stammer out.
She stood up straight and brushed some hairs behind her ear, trying desperately to regain composure. "News?? What news my lord?" She was a bit confused. Not remembering she had once asked him to inquire about her sisters. She had been so busy taking care of him of late that it had completely slipped her mind.

He chuckled, amused by her reaction, before he replied to her question "My dear, you asked me to bring you news about your sisters. I have received news about them..." he gestured her to sit down, while he was taking place as well on a chair "Your oldest sister is doing quite fine. Apparently the son of a rich merchant fell in love with her and decided to marry her. She has a child too. Your youngest sister was still working in a brothel, I took the freedom of sending her some money and send her to work as a servant in the palace of a noble man I know, she will be treated fairly." He smiled, hoping she would appreciate that. He still didn't tell about her middle sister though...

"O..oh..." She said in her confusion and relief. She had completely forgotten it. Taking a seat and nervously grasping on to her dress. Squeezing it tightly in her palms to ease her nerves. Wrinkling her dress in the process. "Alright?" She said waiting for him to start.
Relaxing when she heard such great news about her sisters. "That sounds good my lord... I am happy to hear that they are doing well...." But he didn't say anything about her other sister. "A-and what about Mira??" She asked a little hesitant. Was she alright?

He nodded with a small smile at her words, glad that the news pleased her, but he knew that the next news wouldn't have been welcomed with that much joy "I'm sorry." he started replying to her question: even though it pained him to bring such dreadful news, being in charge he was quite used to do so and therefore he didn't hesitate. He knew it would only make things worse "Your sister Mira was caught but this plague that's spreading trough Essos and Westeros... she died a few months ago..."

The news sunk in like a wet blanket. In disbelief she looked up at the older mans face. Blinking her eyes a few times before casting her eyes down at the floor. "Oh....." Just thinking of Mira back when they all were still together. That happy face of hers as they laughed about something. Of how she used to take care of her and her other sisters when they were ill.
And now there had been no one to take care of her when she needed it most.
Eire just felt the tears well up in her eyes. Sniffing slightly and trying to wipe those stubborn things away from running to her cheeks. Bending her head down so she wouldn't make her master uncomfortable with such sight of her tears. "I.... I'm sorry my lord..." She managed to stammer out, not able to make the tears cease.

Dymas had quite expected a similar reaction from the girl, and still and yet he knew she deserved to know. Though, it pained him seeing her like that. Standing up, he moved next to her and put a hand on her shoulder: it's no like he didn't know what loosing a beloved one meant...
"Don't be sorry, my dear. You can cry..." crying was useless, but at least helped coping with the pain...

She wasn't completely sure she was crying just because of her sister. Perhaps she mixed some of the anxiety over her lords illness as well into her emotions. That damned plague almost took two people she cared about instead of one.
The hand on her shoulder felt comforting and yet somehow made her cry harder. It felt safe to cry with him in the same room.
She placed her own hand on top of his so that he wouldn't take his hand back. The gentle but firm touch soothed her.

Dymas limited himself to be close to her, giving her time to digest the news, to finish her tears... He wished he could do more for her, after all she had done for him... after being so nice, singing for him... It really pained him to see her suffering and he was almost tempted to hug her... but that was quite wrong of him, beside he fact that she was just his maid, he didn't want to invade like that her personal space... so he simply limited himself to caress her shoulder and after a short while, with his free hand, he recovered from his pocket a clean handkerchief with his initials embroidered on it and passed it to her

She just sobbed for a while. It felt good to just let the tears come. Sure she was making a spectacle of herself in front of him. She just hoped he didn't think of her as a bad investment.
Taking the offered handkerchief and drying her eyes with it. "Thank you my lord... I really appreciate that you went through the trouble of finding things out for me." She said fiddling with the handkerchief and looking at it. She noticed the embroidery. "I shall wash this and return it back to you..."

He kept staying by her side, letting her vent her sadness. He normally wouldn't have gone trough so much troubles for a simple servant girl... sure, he wasn't a heartless man, he would probably have allowed her to take half a day off or something like that, but he wouldn't have lost his time comforting her himself... then why was he doing it now?

He wasn't sure about that himself... maybe cause he owned her his life, she saved him from an assassination and she nursed him when he was sick... maybe cause he felt like he owned a lot to her... maybe cause when she sang she looked like an angel, and angels shouldn't cry... maybe cause he got so used to have her around, always smiling cheerfully, and he started actually caring about her, quite more than a lord should toward a maid... he tried to shake off those ideas. He didn't really want to dig into those feelings... they could mean troubles and... it was better to stay away from that kind of troubles...

He smiled at her words, pulling a string of hair behind her ear "There's no need to thank me, my dear. I did promise you I would, I'm just sorry I couldn't bring you only good news..." then, as she offered to return him the handkerchief, he shook his head "There's no need, you can keep it..."

She smiled softly still looking at the handkerchief in her hands. Her fingertip tracing his initials. The D and the M entwining into eachother in elegant swirls. "I still am grateful my lord Dymas.... You were not obligated to find out about them." She lifted her gaze up to meet his, a little shocked that he would let her have such a thing.
"Oh.... But I couldn't possibly...." She protested. Although the idea of having something personal from him sort of made her heart flutter.

"I gave you my word, didn't I? I would never break my word, child." he simply replied with a smile. That was a matter of honor, and a matter of respect: everyone, not matter heir origin, deserved respect, amd after she saved him that was the very least she could do for her. It was still not enough to him, though... but the matter wasn't urgent as he could wait to discuss about it with his nephew. As she tried to reject the handkerchief, he put his own hand on her hand, the one that was holding the handkerchief, closing it around the little thing "I insist" he simply replied with a smile, bending just a little bit toward her.

Eire felt a hot wave wash over her when he touched her hands. She just prayed in her head that he wouldn't feel how sweaty her palms were getting.
And her heart was beating in her chest like a drum. It was making it hard for her to listen to her head. Instead she begun to read other signals. The way he smiled to her, how he leaned closer to her. His words. His touch. And she just felt herself lean forward and making their lips meet in a soft kiss. Just a peck really.

Dymas eyes widened in surprise as the girl kissed him: he froze where he was, unable to do anything, or say anything as their brief contact was over. He wasn't even able to process properly what had just happened...
His mouth was open in disbelief, he just didn't know what to say or do...
In that moment a knock at the door made him jerk in surprise, while he regained contact with the real world "Come in" his voice sounded suddenly hoarse.

A servant got in, bowing and giving him a letter before he left. Dymas took in distractedly and distractedly checked he sender, but his focus immediately grew as he noticed from who i was from. Reth... He wanted to read the letter but first he needed to talk to Eire...
"I... " he started, a bit embarrassed, no really sure about what to say "You can go now, Eire... you can take the day off... uhm... I'll see you tomorrow, ok?" he still hadn't fully processed what had just happened... he needed time, and he also needed to focus on the letter...

She parted from the kiss as soon as she noticed that he was tense. And her brains kicked back in. Blushing intensely and getting up when the messenger came in. Pretending to be doing something just to keep the atmosphere at least somewhat normal.
Curtsying to Dymas when he dismissed her for today. "Yes my lord...." She said hurrying out of the room. Beating herself over this embarrassing situation. She wouldn't be surprised if lord Dymas would have her sacked or worse for this.

As soon as Eire was gone, Dymas left himself fall on a chair. Had his maid really just kissed him? That sounded so unreal... so incredible... but he could still feel the sensation of her soft lips on his lips. WIth two fingers he touched his lips... why? Why would she do that? What was that for? Even more... why didn't he just stop her? She hadn't been quick enough not to be stopped, if he wanted to, but he still hadn't stopped her... why? Could it be that he liked he little maid?

He shook those thoughts away: he had other business to take care of now. He quickly opened the letter and read it: it was a short, vague letter, but he got immediately what Reth was actually saying, or better asking. He sighed and rested his back on the backrest. Damn his nephew! What on earth had he done? Now he had to get everything ready... but first thing first... He took a sheet of paper and a pen and started writing

My dear nephew,
I write to you to inform you that I'll send you some more guards and maids, to make you feel more at home in this long period away from Essos and from Kharos.
I hop you'll be happy to know that I myself will accompany them, since I have some important matters that I'd like to discuss in person.
Bring my best regards to the queen of Westeros.
Your uncle
Dymas Montmayeur, regent of Kharos


He took a brief look at the letter he just wrote: yes, that could work, and it was a good enough excuse if his nephew had secret business to talk about. Beside, he could actually bring some paperwork to him...
He sighed, putting his sigil on the closed letter. Now it cam the difficult part: the preparation for the trip...
