Walking through roads and a few side alleys here and there, Maria leads the way to the grand embassy of Iona. She stops just outside a set of large, regal looking gates with a guard either side. Beyond the gates is a rather large building, during the daytime it must be quite a sight with all the flags of the different nations waving in the soft winds, at night however it seems empty, stagnant and rather haunting.
Nodding to the guards, Maria leads the way through the gates up to a set of grand oak doors.
"This way if you please Silas. Oh and Rin?"
"Yes my lady?!?"
The scrawny man squeaks
"Please light a few candles around go ahead and inform the director his guest has arrived?"
Watching him open the doors and run off inside, she turns to Silas and waits a while before saying, begrudgingly
"This way if you please...I don't particularly want to be here...but rules are rules and you must be brought to him. This way please."
Leading inside the dimly lit corridor, paintings and statues of all ages, races and genders can be seen adorned here and there."
"This is the Grand Embassy of Iona, please don't touch anything, Rin get's AWFULLY annoyed if you do that, besides, if anyone's going to annoy him, it's going to be me."
She says with a slight playfully cruel smirk on her face.
"Well, what do you think?"
