I dismissed what Edmund said about William, all the while the single question burned in my mind. Why he hasn't told me anything about the upcoming event? His face still hold an unpleased expression, worry, slight grumpiness and something else, but I couldn't get a feeling, what was it. I eyed him for another minute, as he sipped couple spoons of his soup.
"Don't you want to tell me anything?"
His eyes shot up, as if being terribly disturbed. I couldn't help, but flinch.
"Actually, there was, but... but it looks like you already know, what it is about. Am I right?"
So it was all true. I will have to meet other nobles soon and the thought terrified me. Also Edmund seemed not himself, which made me little bit anxious to ask for any kind of support at this moment.
"Don't worry. Everything will be alright."
