We arrived at Herronhall to find that our plan was foiled by Bronn, who had the opportunity to deliver the news of Orville before us. A nervous and pitiful Maester Tothmure passed along that Lord Whent was refusing to be disturbed after learning of his son's passing, but invited us to eat. I followed Lady Alys into the overwhelming and rich dining hall, and wondered if I should start strategizing ways to flip houses.
After eating together, I stopped in the kitchen and looked for direction about preparing a room for Lady Alys. Jane pointed me towards the guest room, and as I made the bed, that batshit Brynda pokes her head in to remind me of her crazy rambling. Oh great, thanks Brynda, I'll keep my eye open for some glass.
After dinner I caught up with Jane, and we walked together towards her room. She shared that the families that take up in Herronhall seem to be doomed, and noted that she herself has experienced strange happening, but stays because she thinks no one could pay as well as Lord Whent the Wealthy. Is that so, Jane? Tell me more! She assured me that she does not think the house needs further help.
I hope to further explore my financial opportunities here, and perhaps move up in a seemingly equally conflicted and struggling house. In the meantime, I will try to curry favor with those in House Whent.
