It was depressing to think that he had plotted this reservation as a romantic night for him and Tehodis. Following his meeting with Elias Harel, glowing with success, he had sent a letter commanding it. It was there that he would ask her to marry him, and she would of course say yes, as most women would to a noble, as most women would to Woodrow. Instead, his reservation would be used on someone far less attractive, incredibly less interesting, and all too despicable for Woodrow to imagine having an appetite. Pelagia Xista.
Woodrow had still dressed to the nines. He wasn't going to show himself at such a place as Saveur looking like he had just left work. No, he was in his finest tails, hidden only by his heavy fur coat. He arrived in his personal carriage, and was immediately assisted by the restaurant's staff in stepping out. They lead him across a striking red carpet, took his fur cloak from him, and guided him to the private room. The attorney was already there, and was seated at a separate table with an impressive length of parchment, and an assortment of quills and inks. The man likely thought himself lucky, able to attend such a venue as this. He didn't realize, likely, that he would not be dining tonight. He was simply there to do a job.
He took his seat - there were no chairs at Saveur. Instead, there were cushions to kneel upon. Pelagia would hate it, he knew, which made it all the better. He was almost certain Pelagia would be late, if for no other reason than to spite him for earlier. He supposed it was fair, but it didn't make him hate her less. Instead, it would be another reason to find her a distasteful excuse for an aasimar.
As he waited, he observed the room. Unfortunately the memo had evidently not traveled to Saveur, as rose petals were scattered across the table and the cushions. Signs of romance, which he had no reason to share with the feathered beast he was meeting. If he had been less focused on disliking her, he might have remembered his later plans to surprise Tehodis, might have called someone over to ensure it would not happen... It would be an interesting evening indeed.
