"Then call me up a plate," I say, shrugging, "Something indulgent. I'd like a feast."

I can feel my brow furrow at that. I'm unsure what her intent might be. She could do as Richard has done many times before, covering the table in succulent meats and ripe fruits to stuff himself silly, my stomach growling in envy the whole time. Or perhaps she means to be kinder - I don't know.

"Alright," I say anyway as I get to my feet to go to the phone. "What would you like? We usually have good stuffed hen with blackberry sauce this time of year, if you like that sort of thing."

"You know the kitchens better than I do - Order whatever you think is best." I say, pulling the book back into my lap before reaching back for my glasses.

"Meat, fruit, vegetables. You know - the spread."

"As you wish," I frown a bit before picking up the phone. It takes me a moment to remember the number to the kitchens, the old rotary dial ringing into place with each number. I recognize the voice of the servant on the other end instantly, and I can't help but smile at her friendly voice. She's surprised and disappointed to hear my voice, but she says nothing as I give her the order before promising to send it up right away.

"It should be down in just a few minutes," I say as I hang the phone up and return to my seat.

I hum my understanding as I read through the pages of the book, sipping at my whiskey. Only occasionally so I glance up to see Marnin - never straying from his seat, taking tentative drinks as though waiting to be beckoned for another errand.

"Do you have any records?" I ask, never looking up from my book. "I was told I could have run of the room, but I couldn't find them."
