I really need to get on the ball with this book. I've been taking my sweet time (which isn't a bad thing), but I feel this urge to get it finished.
What takes place in this scene:
Andrina has been on the train from Legora to the New World Kingdom (to meet the King). When it says something about "the riders", it's talking about the Black Riders--the King's personal footmen. I searched and searched for a correct term for these guys, and "footmen" kept popping into my brain. So, I pulled up Wikipedia. Here's what it said:
In a larger household, various footmen may be assigned specific duties (for which there may be a traditional sequence), such as the silver specialist, but usually the footmen perform a range of duties which include serving meals, opening and closing doors, carrying heavy items, or moving furniture for the housemaids to clean behind. The footmen may also double as valets, especially for visiting guests.
Strange, huh? Do you see why I need to finish this book?
On to the teaser...
*SNIP* Thanks for stopping by! :)
