Brand carried in Nox’s satchel, and a small block of ice that encased several firethorns.  “Here are the seeds you requested, Lady Ice.”

A flick of her hand sent an icy breeze across the top of the crypt, sweeping it clean. “Place them on the tomb, please, and I’ll need you to stay and take notes.”

“Of course, my Lady.”

Nox blew into her hands, forming a chain out of ice with the seal of her House hanging on it. She handed it to Loki.  “Congratulations! You are now the acting Ambassador for the House of Ice.  I need to know if any of our allies have been attacked, or need assistance.”

He gave her a wry smile. “And you do not need me anywhere near you when you start dissecting those firethorns.”  He leaned down to give her a kiss. “Be careful, luv.”

“You too. Don’t melt that chain.”

He gave her a wink and collared one of the guards standing outside, waving the chain in front of his nose. “A horse, my good man. The Lady has put me to work.”

“Um, yes sir?”

Nox watched until he disappeared from sight, fervently wishing that he could stay. There was no help for it though, she could not risk any source of heat around the thorns.  She dug out a few boxes from her satchel and handed Brand a notebook and a pen.  “All right, let’s get to work.  Be ready to freeze those nasty little things if they get frisky.”
