Episode 6: Out on the Town – Part 2
House Tuttle is the toast of the Reach, and their fame has reached far and wide – and most notably – to the ears of the other Tuttles. With fame comes responsibilities, and it seems that one of those responsibilities has been lost in Oldtown. Timothee Tuttle, first cousin to Lord Tuttle himself has been lost in Oldtown for the past week, and Lord Tuttle’s other brother’s widow Noamie is desperate, turning to her up-and-coming brother in-law for some aid. But, is all what is seems? Does Noamie have an agenda that includes using House Tuttle? Lord Tuttle sends his children to meet up with their household staff already in Oldtown to discover the truth.
Simon total arrives in old town aboard the Blue Lion. He meets everybody at the doc’s, including Evan Onslow Lord Tuttle’s new hire. Not long after the retainers had left for old town, and no cane informing Lord Tuttle that his nephew Timothy had been kidnapped. Lord Tuttle sister-in-law Naomi was desperate to find her son. Armed with the note and location the he needed to go, Simon gathers everyone and and they go toward the in were Naomi is at.
Lady Noami doesn’t seem very convincing. For a woman who has just lost her child to the streets of Oldtown and the possibility of being lost forever, she is incredibly dry eyed. She also seems evasive when questioned. And on top of that he’s wearing find close and has a servant. This doesn’t ring true with Simon’s memory of his aunt. Although he has misgivings, Simon decides to press on with finding the boy.
Everyone gives their suggestions about where to find the boy. Elyana and Miradora go to the kitchens and inquire if they seen the boy. The cook said that he had left the day that he was kidnapped with a man who was dressed in armor and green a gold clothes. It didn’t seem like a kidnapping to her. Simon went to the some inns in Oldtown and so did Evan.
Simon first goes to the Starry Sept. He talked in old gentleman, who was presumably one of the priests who is there to help worshipers find their way. After some questioning, Simon did not make any headway in finding the young man. Simon then made his way to the inns.
Simon was able to inquire about some things but ultimately came up empty-handed except for some small tidbits of gossip from a rich merchant. Evan wandered around the streets but could not get anyone to talk to him. Dylan decided to go to the bathhouses where he met up with Tyrion Lannister as he was being hauled away by his brother Jamie.
Almost the entire day was spent looking for clues of where the boy was at, but the group only had some speculation of what the boy’s fate may have been. Dylan that that he may have been sold off as a slave and shipped over the narrow sea. Dylan did see a ship that corresponded to the colors on the man’s cloak which was golden and green. He did not get too close to it. Simon decided that he wanted a closer look at the ship. Everyone attempts a plan to try to get onto the ship. It involves ale and one of Meridora’s concoctions to make everyone more susceptible to drunkenness. Meanwhile, Evan decided to go and try to find out more information in the ends.
The plan didn’t go quite as well as everyone hoped. The men guarding the ship with the gold in green sales were highly disciplined troops they would not let anyone on, nor would they invite the drink that was specially made for them. As a matter of fact they insist that Miradora and Elyana both drink from the cask. They wanted to celebrate but they cannot drink while they were on guard duty. All that happened was that Miradora and Elyana got drunk in they were escorted by one of the soldiers back to the blue lion.
Dylan, on the other hand, managed to fall in with a bunch of the soldiers who were wearing the green and gold. They welcome Dylan then has another warrior who has seen a lot of battle. And throughout the night they simply got more and more drunk. Late in the evening or in the morning the soldiers decided to return back to the place that they were staying flophouse that was close to the wall of the Citadel. More drink and more women in then Dylan passed out until the next morning. Then he was roust out of bed by apparently Sgt. that was in command of the troops in the flophouse. Lining his troops up in Dylan to, a man by the name of Lord green came in to inspect who was there. Soon Dylan was found out to be not a soldier and was told to step outlining go away.
Dylan hung around close to the flophouse discovered that the officers of the soldiers were staying at a place called the Inkwell Tavern that was almost right up against the walls of the Citadel. He went there and decided to conduct some surveillance. He noticed that several men seem to go up and down the stairway to the upper rooms in the tavern. He inquired to a serving made about who the men were, but she did know. She didn’t know however that there was a small boy with them that is played down in the common room occasionally. Dylan hung around for a few more hours. In the early afternoon he left for the blue lion. Once at the ship, he was dressed down by both his sister Elyana and Simon. Dylan didn’t let on what he knew except Meridora. He gave her a message that some one at the Inkwell may have the boy and keep an eye up there while he dealt with matters upon the ship. After a time. Dylan asked Evan if he could borrow his horse so he could conduct another search in old town for the missing boy. Simon got suspicious and gathered everyone up and follow Dylan and old town.
When Dylan got to the inkwell he noticed that Miradora was there. She had actually seen the boy playing downstairs along with the gentleman who was nicely dressed. Dylan Miradora above Capt. eye on everybody downstairs within a few short minutes many men came downstairs and that includes the boy. One of the men said something about the mission had gone stale and the other man said will return the boy back. As the boy was rocking past Miradora, she called out to him and called his name. The boy responded Dylan said that he was with Lord Tuttle and he was instructed to bring the boy home. The two men. The dignified themselves as Lord Green and Lord Flowers. And allowed Meridora in Dylan the following toward the docks. Halfway there they met up with Simon and everyone else. Niceties were exchanged and everyone went to the blue lion. Here Lord flowers outlined his proposal. Simon seem interested.
Soon everyone parted ways. Simon and everybody returned to the in to return the boy to his mother. Simon asked if the boy could be a page, and the only agreed. She had a look of relief in her eyes. Soon everyone was board the Blue Lion and it was cast off for thr trip back to Shell Island.
Crossing the Redwine Straits the crew the Blue Lion spot ship that was floundering in the sea, with smoke wafting from it. The sails were burnt and as Blue Lion drew closer, the crew could see dead bodies and arrows everywhere. Closer even, the name of the ship could be seen – Arbor Gold – a Redwyne ship. As a matter fact, the flagship of a Redwyne fleet. Simon ordered that the ship be boarded. It was inspected, with most everyone was dead except for one soul only looked up at Simon and said “beware the ship with the hand” before he also died. Simon took the Arbor Gold in tow and brought it back to the Arbor where he found out that Paxter Redwyne’s wife Mina their infant daughter and her two sons were aboard and are apparently missing.
With some second thoughts about what he had done, Simon set sail for Shell Island. The Blue Lion docks at Shell Island a few hours later. Everyone disembarks. Everything seems changed.
Simon has been left wondering if he made the right choice, or if he struck a deal with The Stranger. Shell Island must be more welcoming now that he is home and away from the political mechanations of the mainland. The question now is – what will happen in the months to come? Will the Tuttles stand fast and keep out of the possible conflicts to come, or will they cast the die and see where fortune lands? He has already given favorable ear to Hugh Gardener, who intends on regaining his family’s position as rulers of Highgarden. Either way, things are changing in the Reach for the good or bad and House Tuttle must cope with what is coming. Meanwhile… it is a nice day in the growing port on Shell Island, a place yet ignorant of what is to come.
