Walter had his head bowed from the beginning. Listening, he understood, that they would be letting the minister go later. He had no intention of letting the man recognize him the next day, if this did not work. Hearing the lady's loss of words, he sighed inwardly; as he could tell it was already not going well. She had all the evidence, but could not strike fear in the heart of her hostage.

"The one she must not offend is the queen right?" Walter asked. The minister looked his way with a frown.

"You should be more worried about yourself. We've taken your entire family you know, what will happen to them is entirely up to you." Walter said.

The minister's eyes still devoid of fear as he asked, "Who are you?"

"You miss the point. Not only do we have evidence of your treasonous act, we do of three more ministers." Walter said and the minister turned solemn.

"Of course, you are too worried about the queen to care what we might do. After all, you've got it all planned. Even if you agree to what we say, you will change your mind later and tell the queen. That way, she can return all the money, before we can take the evidence to the king


"What do you want me to do?" the minister asked.

"You will produce evidence of the other three minister to back ours and the one who will take the fall for your incompetence in the ministry. When you have it, you will be the one to take it before the king when we tell you to." Walter said.

"Me?" the minister asked. He was not sure they would win, so putting him out there was a plan he was against.

"How else do you intend to show the king that you are trying to repent for your incompetence? Besides, I assure you, there are layers to this you have not seen. This is but one of many. The queen will fall; that will not change. You have been given a chance by this information, to choose a side." Walter said and the minister's head dropped in surrender.
