He observed the quarrelsome behavior in silence, standing as a stoic onlooker to the crowd. The room filled with accusations as a swarm of locusts would overtake a field in the height of harvest. It was almost humorous in the way each of them tried to make sense of the situation.
Zhuge "Ryven" Liang cleared his throat softly, letting his eyes flick back and forth between them all. "It seems we have come to an impasse. Votes change like the direction of the wind, and I'm afraid the evidence to support who and how Remiel passed from this plane last night is as transparent as the mountain spring," he spoke while moving back to the table he had sat before the day prior. He took a seat and unrolled a fresh sheet of parchment.
"There is nothing to lead me to believe that Saffron had any ill will toward Remiel. There is a supposed truth that General Weber
is, in fact, the Vermilion General. That then leaves the question of why she revealed herself so early. Did she think she might hide behind her title to protect her act of ill intent or is she simply revealing the truth so early for other reasons? The stars have veiled their secrets from me on this matter, but I do find the nature of the revelation startling and possibly questionable. May destiny reveal itself and lend enlightenment to my troubled mind," he said, picking up a brush once more and beginning to stroke it across the parchment in a graceful motion.
