You shake your head a little, as if to shake away the curiosity.

On featherlight feet, you hasten to the closet to prepare the blood-red gown the Lady Amaranth chose the night before.

Everything is ready when the Lady awakes.

The Lady appears to be in an excellent mood.

She is all smiles and affection and energy, so much energy.

You help her bathe and dress.

She turns to you, beaming, and says, ‘Take today as a holiday! Go into town to see your mother! I’ll get one of the other maids to help me for the rest of the day.’

Do you:

go directly to your mother’s house?

stop by the stables and say hello to Logan?
