Val listened to the arguments in silence, watching the others as they discussed the matter, sometimes heatedly. And who could blame them? Their very lives were at stake, the entire court in danger. Some excellent points were being raised, and it was difficult to choose among them. The arguments against Lord Ryven and Lord Aiden were quite convincing. And of course they might easily both be guilty. It was highly doubtful that the two men were working together in any way, but they did not need to be in league with each other to both be evil. That both made the task of finding the villains more difficult, and helped to save them, for if both groups found a way to work together, there would be no hope of stopping them.
"Lord Aiden," she finally said, reluctantly. She had a horror of mistakenly dooming another, as all the remaining innocents must also have, and this time there was no even remotely clear choice. But as much as she disliked voting this blindly, it seemed worse to do nothing.
