Like a ritual, she entered the palace and approached the king's study.

"Lady Steinhouse arrives!" Announced a manservant as Lady Steinhouse is arrives the king's study.

"Enter." she heard a familiar voice say from inside. The door opened and she walked in swiftly. Pausing, she did a formal cutesy towards the man writing on a scroll. She remained in that posture, awaiting to be told to get up. She neither looked up to know if he had seen her nor stopped.
