"What the...!" Gjurd fell out of bed fast with a heavy naked thud. Ragnhild was looming over him in calculative wait as her irises gleamed with that usual intensity.
"You still sleep too much."
Panting, Gjurd held his blanket around him as he gazed a dazed and confused look to Ragnhild.
"Goddess' mercy, Ragnhild. You too tease-me, so?"
Not responding, she turned her back while walking to her own bunk and with a hidden smirk.
"Get dressed and ready for a mission. The smith has come to public light, as anticipated, and he is now a valuable commodity and a high profile target no doubt. Damned be the dumb & nefarious hands that don't recognize his talents, so the ones that do pay attention are plotting."
Gjurd grunted and took his time to dress leathers and other needs. "So, what then...? Clearly you're not going to be his fan-girl."
Ragnhild rolled her eyes.
"You are to protect him from the shadows. Spy on him, watch him at whatever capacity you can for the next month to make sure he stays safe. There are friends of ours or general allies that may rely on his talent which benefits Cormyr. And if nothing happens: I wasted your time."
Gjurd laughed, "Haw! Why don't we just kidnap him and apply pretty bows on his head in our quarters? Kai has a great many bows she puts in my beard sometimes."
Ragnhild turned to regard Gjurd with a perplexed stare. "Just...get...started..."
