On the cobblestone road ahead of Oralie was a mana-powered coach tilted to the side like a glorious golden-scaled wyvern with a crippled leg. A crisply uniformed man, presumably the driver, was kneeling on the ground, attempting to affix a wheel to a naked axle from which it must have popped right off. Oralie observed this spectacle for a moment, then approached the carriage. She knocked on one of the glass windows.
Someone, a nobleman by the looks of it, cracked the coach door open. His eyes narrowed. "Yes?"
"Hi! Is everything alright here?"
"Does everything look alright here?" he retorted. His voice was dry, but sweat was beading on his forehead. He gave her a once-over. "Hmm. Are you a messenger?"
Oralie snapped into a salute that would make a Regnum commander proud. "Yessir! Lister Delivery, at your service! Our motto is: a Lister always delivers! How may I help you?"
The nobleman nodded his head absently as he bent down, opening a compartment by the door. He retrieved a fancy memo pad and a pen. Oralie stood motionless as he took a minute to scrawl a hurried memo, which he ripped out and folded into a tiny square. He passed it to Oralie. "Take this to the St. Dalliance manor, and do it quick. There's no time to waste."
Oralie tucked the square into one of her messenger bag's many pockets. "No problem! That'll be 25 Florence, please."
The nobleman waved his hand. "Have my butler Octave pay you. Now go."
Oralie summoned her wings and took off. Five straight minutes of flying later, she realized she had no idea where the St. Dalliance manor was.
