    Mhaenal turned around just in time to get the scroll out of her way. "What are you doing?"

    Glink stood straight as a rod and folded both hands behind her back as quickly as she could. She looked up at him with big, innocent eyes.

    She stood that way for several seconds before looking over her shoulder for someone, then back up at him. She pointed a finger at herself, "Who, me?"

    Mhaenal watched her for moment, then mentally shrugged and mounted his horse. "Let's go."

Killroy also mounted his horse. Then offered Glink a hand up.

The two other prisoners got on their respective horses.

     Todd, not noticing the plan hadn't worked, was still screaming and running around his horse.

    Glink accepted the assist.

    "Come on Ted!" She called.

     "Huh? What did you... oh never mind!" Todd looked at the horse he had been yelling at. "Okay Ted, let's go for a walk."

     Surprisingly the horse let him mount, though it was reluctant to move forward.

    It wasn't long before the group arrived at Olavon's house... or rather, they arrived at the massive hill that housed his apparently rather extravagant, multi-story mansion. There was a winding cobblestone path up the hill that'd make the hike less arduous.

    "Wow... he lives here? This is the biggest home I've ever seen." Glink said awfully. As in, she was full of awe, not that her voice was awful... or maybe it was, who really knows...

"Looks like your contact is pretty well to do." Killroy noted in Mhaenal's direction.

    Mhaenal nodded, but didn't comment and continued up the hill.

    Once they made it to the top of the hill and saw the mansion closer, Glink gasped again. "Wait... he has a building too?!"

The two prisoners behind Glink exchanged glances in mild confusion and amusement.

    Mhaenal dismounted, walked up to the front door and knocked loudly.

    After a few moments the door was slowly opened to reveal a tall, muscular orc wearing a suit, scowling down at the door-knocker.

    "Are you Olavan Iver?" Mhaenal asked.

    The orc turned his gaze to each member in the party, then stelled back on Mhaenal for a solid five seconds.

    "Mister Olavon Iver was not expecting visitors."

    "We're not visitors, we're..." Mhaenal glanced behind him at the gang. "...postal service."

    The orc peered blankly past Mhaenal at Todd and Killroy.

    "The last time a human and an elf and a dwarf went postal together, Mister Olavon was lost a limb." He monotoned.

"Is he gonna give us reason to lose him another limb?" Killroy inquired sarcastically.

    Mhaenal ignored Killroy and took the scroll out of his quiver. "I was asked to deliver this to Mr. Iver."

    "Mennfred, what are you doing still at the door? Just tell them I'm out, or I'm dead, or something."

    "I am sorry. Mister Olavon seems to be out and dead." The orc droned.

    The door opened the rest of the way and an old man in red robes appeared next to the hulking green man. He had his right arm wrapped around a bundle of rods, and he had a handful of colorful gems in his left hand, pressed against the side of his head.

    "Who are all these people?" He asked curiously.

    "Postal workers."

    "Oh gods..."

    "He says he was sent to deliver that scroll."

    The old man relaxed, "Oh. That's not so bad then. Uhh..." He looked at all the things in his hands, before simply dropping the rods to the floor and tossing the gems to the side out of sight. A surprised cat yowl erupted from the place the gems were thrown, but the man paid it no heed, instead just reaching out to take the scroll.

    Mhaenal gave Mennfred a confused glanced and handed the scroll to the old man.

    "I find this very suspect." Glink whispered to Todd.

    Or she tried to whisper anyway, in actuality she said it quite loudly.

    "Ah, thank you young sir. This must be Ray'an's painting.." The old man seemed excited as he untied the ribbon. He stopped before unrolling it though. "Oh. Payment. Err, I mean manners." He patted down his pockets. "I seem to have nothing. Have you any coin, Mennfred."

    "No I do not, Mister Olavon."

    "Well stiffles. Wait here a moment."

    Olavon turned around and started down a hallway, while muttering under his breath about something and unrolling the scroll.
