I pull my gaze from him momentarily so I can gather shoes and a proper coat, my attention never leaving him, though. I gather my things quickly, stopping at my altar to adjust some of the items absently before palming a slender obsidian athame. I make no show of hiding it, the blade sticking plainly from my hand as I head for the door. 

"So, did Richard send you to show off, or something?" I ask absently once we're in the hall, "Was I not properly impressed with him on his last visit?"

"No, he actually sent his personal assistant," I respond with an amused smirk as I follow her into the hall, not remotely bothered by her arming herself. Still, I gesture ahead, keeping her either at my side or ahead of me, never at my back. "A tedious woman named Anthea who never looks up from her phone. She was busy, though, and passed the job along to me."

I raise an eyebrow as I glance over at her with a crooked smile. "So I'm 'impressive', am I? Or is that the Pahgish for unnerving?"

"You?" I respond, cocking an eyebrow up at him as I shake my head. "You are unnerving, honestly, but no, I meant impressed... You know, with Richard, and all of his pull."

"Ah," I nod as she clarifies her meaning further. "Apologies, I'm still learning the subtleties of this language."

When we get to the door leading outside, I step ahead of her, turning as though to face her so I can speak as I use my back to push the door open without touching the handle. "Were you impressed, though?" I ask with interest. "Does he need to show off? More than he already is, I should say... sending Anthea to fetch you."

"He's just another person in this city to me," I say simply, not yet walking through the door as I look up at Lavellan. "One who I owe a debt to..."

Sighing, I lean closer, speaking more quietly. "Should I be impressed?"
