After tying Launde and Mr. Tolouse's hands together and securing them together for the moment, Madam Satima searches the room for any valuable she can sell to make a bit more gold off of before she sold them into servitude.
As she searched thier closets finding nothing ...she started to get a bit agitated "What two idiots come out into the wilderness, and dont carry clothing for the trip or for that matter much else for the journey?"
Finding thier packs she finally hit pay dirt "What do we have here?" as she had by luck opened Launde's pack first finding the small lock box, and removing a bobbie pin from her hair started to pick the lock on its latch.
Focusing, she pressed the pin inside the lock's mechanism, turning it gently to the left and releasing one tumbler, and then pressing down and a bit to the right to release another tumbler, and then finally turned the locks latch to open the box revealing the contents to her curious and greedy eyes.
She gently removes the Map, and looking at it, studying it she see that it is leading into the mountain in threw a place which she made the guess was a well know "Entrance" every miner claims is impassible but with a "Legendary Map" will allow you to find "The Great Gem" these are all Old Wife's Tales they are not true.....BUT THE MAP!
Seeing the "Map" she almost forgot the rest of the locked box, until it feel to the floor as she raised the map to the light in the room to see the details better.
"Hmmmmmmmmmmm" she noticed the wrapped "Relic" but felt that it was extreme cold, so cold she could barely hold it, "What... its been with them this whole time how can it be as cold as Rock Ice" so she quickly placed it back into the box touching it as ginerly as she could for its cold tempature, never knowing how close she came to being petrified as Launde's Father and Mr. Krouse his rival had been.
Madam Satima decide to place everything back into the box, including the letter of what sounded like an attempted murder on the part of the Lady in the couple. "Wasnt me so it's not my business to deal with" and put it back in the pack, and then she quickly searched the other pack finding not much else of importance.
"I guess thats all thats worth snitching, out of you two" winking at the two sitting sleeping with thier hands tied together.
"I best get you two squared away and put somewhere safe till your owners come to decide on a price for you two" as she took the packs and carried them away and down the dumb-waiter in thier room to the basement where she could dispose of them.
The bell for the dumb waiter sounded and started its return back to its starting position at the rooms compartment, as Madam Satima took the speaking tube, and called down to the desk and alerted her body-guards to come retrieve the two to carry them out to thier "New Room" near to the site where the "Buyer" would make her a deal on the two.
More coming soon!
