The lady friar shook her head at her accusers. "It is true I have suspected Remiel from the outset, but when one approaches every person with the same offer, how could one not be suspicious. Ask yourselves my dear friends, who has approached you and who has not. I did indeed vote for people not known the be Capulets, because I did not know if they be Capulets or not.Mostly it was gut feeling and luck of the draw. The unfortunate decision between Beguiles and Josietta was more for the sake of the group, as Beguiles had already outed herself and the lovers were certain to get us all killed."she stood and walked around the room looking at every person level in the eye.
" And now I shall out myself. I am a humble Montague, who has been elected to the position of final decision maker when we as a group come to an impasse.I have no reason to lie. I have asked questions about my suspicions to the person's present. And if you think that makes me your enemy, then cast your vote for my head. Either way, I am certain that my mask having been removed will put me in the line of fire, whether it be by the headman's ax or the dagger of a Capulet. But be warned, should I fall and you must re-elect, you leave your fates into the hands of an enemy, for the Capulet is still at large." having returned to her chair Lady Rapt sat down calmly and placed her hands folded in her lap.
"As for my vote and suspicions, Blythe you make yourself a target of mine and not for the first time" her steel colored eyes narrowed on the gent, not entirely certain of his innocence.
