Gaius: Father, you worry too much. I'll be fine,
Hulda: Come on in. We got warm food, warm drinks, and warm beds.
Sigurd: I work for Belethor, at the general goods store.
Hulda: Just a reminder, sweetie, the blankets still need to be washed.
Sandia: Oh, yes Miss Hulda.
Gaius: Last mistake.
Sam: You look like someone who can hold--
Gabriella: Ah, at last. I've been anxiously awaiting your return.Yes, I know. As does Astrid. You have done well, and have earned both your reward, and a bonus, as I have mentioned. But you should know that we have a more pressing matter to deal with. It's Cicero. There's been a incident. You should proceed into the sanctuary. I'll let Astrid explain.
Babette: Just try to relax, Veezara. Let the elixir do its work. You'll feel better shortly.
Veezara: Ah. Thank you dear. You are most kind. The jester's cut feels as bad as it looks, I'm afraid
Astrid: Damn it, this never should have happened! We knew better. We knew better, and still we let our guards down. Agh!
Festus Krex: I'll admit, even I'm having a hard time disagreeing with you.
Astrid: Maro is dead, I know. But we've But we've got bigger problems right now! The fool went absolutely berserk! He wounded Veezara. Tried to kill me, and then he fled. I knew that lunatic couldn't be trusted.

Make sure he's all right. After the attack, Arnbjorn flew into a rage. When Cicero left, Arnbjorn went after him. They disappeared into the wild. Search Cicero's room. Maybe there's something in there that sheds some light on where he might have gone. Let me know the minute you find something. I've got to see to Veezara,and calm everyone down.
Veezara: Bested by a fool. Who's the fool now. Hmm?
Babetti: Hush, Veezara. You were very brave. Astrid may well be dead if not for you.
Astrid: She's right. I'll be forever in your debt, dearest brother. Now be quiet. Just, just rest.
