With a heavy sigh, Mith bowed her head sadly.  "I shall trust the judgment of others and vote for Saffron as well.  I can only pray that we are right."

Friends, at least those of you who are... before I die I will leave you with my suspicions of Xandi and Stattick as those who are disloyal. I wish you luck in pushing out the spies as they have been responsible for not only my death but everyone who has given their lives. Do not believe their lies.

After thinking much about who was a spy, and who voted with them, I have come up with a few problems. A few people that are still in our court have sided with the spies before.

So, my vote is going to have to go with.... Xandi. I am sorry, but my thoughts will not clear until I act on them.

It was clear from the start that Minister Xandi's early accusation had set the tone for the remaining members of the imperial court. Suspicious eyes followed Minister Saffron as she strode through the imperial compound, proclaiming her innocence - but without a strong supporter, and with so many fingers pointed against her, Saffron found herself unable to do anything but leave some last words amidst the surviving officials.

She almost seemed to expect it when she heard a knock to her door, and was surprised instead to see two servants instead of two frightening assassins. She was seated in the receiving hall of her room, calmly sipping a cup of tea; and, preoccupied, she didn't think anything of the pot of tea that the servants replaced before they left again.

Death came quickly; the poisonous, tasteless powder that had been dissolved in her favorite strong brew of tea leaves was nothing if not swift. But alas, Minister Saffron was only a courtier who had only loyalty in her heart. The green jade pendant clasped in her hand was the only calling card of the Wolves of the Wind, who grieved at yet another innocent's death.

Though the loyalists had struck a heavy blow only two days ago when two Wei spies had been caught out and eliminated, it didn't seem as though the remaining courtiers had any idea who the last Wei spy might be; and to make it worse, nobody knew who was masquerading as a courtier, but was in actuality one of the royal twins. Neither had revealed themselves as of yet, and nobody knew if their battle was silent, or being fought in secret.

Regardless, the days looked to be numbered for the innocent members of the Court. In the morning, Remiel was found in the armory, a bloodied sword still loosely held in one of his fists. He had tried to fight back, but unfortunately, he had lost.

The next day, Stattick lit another candle, this time for the loyal Remiel. He spoke quietly to the departed spirit of better times that they had spent together, and set the candle adrift on the pond, another soul lost to the strife in the court. He returned to the court, and quickly drank some wine to give him courage for what he wanted to say.

"I am afraid we have lost another loyal friend last night... and obviously, there is still a spy in our midst. With no evidence in hand, we must choose another of our members, by supposition and intuition, and pray that we choose better today then yesturday.

"I cannot get Ryven's words from last night out of my head, and think that he might have been on to something. I too think that it's suspicious that FallenAngelNajdan voted for Kyrsa after she revealed herself."

"Do not think that you have evaded suspicion, FallenAngelNajdan.  If I recall correctly, you were one of the few who still voted for the later Minister Kyrsa after she had come forward.  That seems quite odd to me."

Imogen meditated on the small terrace overlooking the Lotus Pond and thought of how its dark, mysterious surface resembled the starry sky with all the light adrift between the flowers. She folded her hands in her lap and thought of the fallen and living alike. Too many had died to treacherous hands; but they had found several of the guilty and justice had been served. And still the danger was not past.Speculating in silence, Imogen remained seated by the pool until the sound of voices drifted across the water. She rose and crossed the wooden bridge towards the speakers, folding her hands in the long, draped sleeves.

"I agree." She said quietly. "It was suspicious, but... " Imogen hesitated and looked at the many glittering lights, quiet testimony of their former errors. She mustered her courage and took a deep breath. "I'm not too sure the guilty would have drawn that kind of attention. Yet...." She mused, "it would have gone unnoticed if not for Ryven." Her eyes flitted to the main house and she bowed her head. "Stil, I wonder if the last traitor isn't rather someone quiet and careful not to draw attention. I have always considered Mithlomwen a clever and resourceful woman. Her silence in these past nights worries me."

Mithlomwen regarded Imogen thoughtfully and bowed her head respectfully.  "I can assure you my good lady that it is not I that is the traitor amongst us, a fact that will be proven to all of you ."  She said quietly.  "I shall place my vote on FallenAngelNajden."

As the votes started to come in, he started to become saddened.

"I see that my voting as of late has made people think that I am one of the spies. But if you remember, I have voted for one of the spies in the past. If that does not show that I am not one of the spies, try and remember all my voting, and who I did vote for. You will see that I have voted on my own accord and not with the people that we have come to see as spies.

"Stattick has my vote. If my death does nothing more then show that I am not a spy, then so be it. But my blood will be on your hands, and I will curse you all of killing me."

"That same vote that you speak of, Remiel voted with us, are you saying that he is a Wei spy as well? Because your proof that you have that shows me as a spy is very weak. But I have no fear of dieing to prove that I am not a Wei spy."

He looked around at all the people in the court right now.

"But, if you want to use voting with the spies that have been revealed, then you must be a Wei spy as well. In the first vote, that put Kurzyk to death, you vote along side aymelekT and Iejir, both of the spies that we have found. So, what do you have to say to that?"

"It was the first vote, but, I did not vote with the two known spies. And your "facts" that I am a spy was that I voted once with a known spy. It just seems that your wanting to see what you want to. But that is fine. My life for the Emperor."

"As I leave the court, I want everyone to remember these words. You might not be the one that pushes the blade into my heart, but my blood will be on your hands. Don't think that you can wash clean of this act. How many of our people that were not spies have you put to death? I have never been in the winning vote, so I don't have any blood on my hands. Just remember that."

He leaves the court, and goes to await his fate.

As FallenAngelNajdan paced his room later that afternoon, waiting for the Wolves of the Wind to come for him, an unexpected visitor came, armed with a pot of tea and two cups. Unsure of why someone who had clearly been siding against him wished to chat politics while he was waiting for his death, FallenAngelNajdan reluctantly stepped aside and allowed her in.

The courtier left, and he was left alone again. Not long after he had begun writing some poetry on a fresh scroll, one of the Wolves of the Wind entered. FallenAngelNajdan stiffened, but he stood, unwilling but ready to assume the fate that his fellow courtiers had given him.

But at that very moment, Mithlomwen stepped into the room. FallenAngelNajdan, surprised to see her after their earlier conversation, could do nothing but stare. She, however, wasted no time in pulling out a pendant of the darkest green jade, carved with a
kilin - a unicorn that symbolized longevity for a royal child - and showing it to the Wolf of the Wind, who was utterly in shock at the interruption. She smiled serenely, waiting for the man to kneel at her feet and greet her.

"This man is an innocent member of the Imperial Court," she proclaimed. "There will be no more innocent deaths - at least, not this day."

Due to the Loyal Twin's use of her ability, revealing FallenAngelNajdan to be innocent, there will be no death via the Wolves of the Wind today.

The setback didn't discourage the lone Wei spy from the spree of killings the three of them had begun. That night, careful to avoid the pathway that passed by Mithlomwen's room, the last Wei spy carefully slipped into another of the rooms along the corridor.

The next morning, it was Minister Xandi whose body was cold and still.

The numbers of loyalists had decreased by one yet again, and it was becoming unclear as to whether they would be able to eliminate the last of the Tiger General's supporters from the imperial court.

That evening was the first in many that Imogen did not light a candle before her nightly meditations. She sat at the pool's edge and smiled pensively at its tranquil surface. Today had brought no sorrow, but joy. Not only had a loyal courtier been rescued, the rightful heir to the throne had revealed herself. Thinking that now, at last, she knew who to trust Imogen rose to rest for the night, praying to the small altar inside her chambers that she might live through this night. The morning brought sad news, as Imogen had come to respect Xandi's judgement and she postponed her visit to Mithlomwen to dedicate a candle to the brave Minister.

After performing the sad task, Imogen went in search of the Princess. She bowed and folded her hands within her sleeves. "Your highness, within this court there are few that I can safely trust. You have proven without doubt the honesty of Minister FallenAngelNajdan, and your own status is beyond question. I have my suspicions as to the rat hiding in our midst, but I would value your opinion."

He walked back into the court, and after last night, he thought that he would never see it again. He looked around, and just about wept at just how many people of the court have been claimed by this spy conflict. Even if they got them now, the spies would still have won, having weakened them past repair.

"I will have to say, that in light of what has been said and looking back, I still have my thought about Ryven being a spy. But, that could be just because he was the main person that started the vote that would have killed me. I will put off my thoughts of that until later. But right now I am going to vote for Stattick because that is one that I have a clear head about.
