"Would hugs and kisses make it easier to deal with?" Felix offers up a hug and a kiss to make Piper feel better.

"Hugs make everything better," pronounces Piper solemnly. She accepts Felix's affection, wrapping her arms around his neck and keeping them there.

Felix, it appears, has now been designated as the carrier of Piper for the foreseeable future.

"Tally ho, then," Felix says as he sets forth into the castle towards the source of the affliction.

"We've got to save her," says Theresa, as she follows.

--------------

It's not long before Felix (and anyone who decides to accompany him) meets the hunchbacked servant, Ivan, again. He's carrying a mop and a bucket of somewhat soapy water.

"Gentlemen?" he asks. "Is there anything you require?"

Arkady nods to Ivan. "We are taking a walk to get the blood flowing. It helps with sleep. And perhaps we could be returning a visit we got recently from a rider."

"A rider?" The hunchback seems mystified as to the significance of that comment. "If you're looking for no more than to improve the circulation, gentlemen, then please allow me to guide you to the courtyard and the gardens. You can take in the fresh night air, and perhaps enjoy the hedge maze while it is still in good condition." He waves an arm, indicating that the route to the courtyard involves heading back the way you came.

"i'd be happy to take you up on you offer," Felix says. Patting Piper on the hand, Felix mutters, "Perhaps some invisibility to get us past the sentries once we're done satisfying Ivan's curiosity?"

Piper closes her eyes a moment, and takes a deep breath.

"There are no sentries," she whispers, and somehow all the Terrans can hear her as if she was whispering in their ear, personally. "Ivan is the only person standing between us and - where we're going."

"It's probably best not to wander these halls alone, gentlemen," says Ivan, leading the group presumably in the direction of the aforementioned gardens. "There are parts of this Castle that... that it is probably best you don't visit without warning." He turns back to look at the group, briefly, his lantern laying ominous shadows over his face. "I did not speak up earlier, because the tale is an embarrassment to the Count, but - you have a Knight of the Church in your party, and - and the Count and I cannot deal with this on our own. It might be better if you would agree to hear of the Count's woes, of the dark cloud that overhangs this Castle."

"We're listening," Felix says.

"To tell the tale in its shortest form, to compress all the woes of this Castle to their root cause; the Count's sister has gone insane. The Count believes it to be incurable, and fears that the same taint might run through his own blood."

The hunchback takes a deep breath.

"In slightly longer form; the Count's sister was in the habit of leaving the Castle upon errands which she did not disclose to either her brother or myself. One day, she left the Castle - and she was never the most attractive of women, not *un*attractive but she feared that her appearance was..." Ivan pauses a moment to find the right word. "Was somehow inadequate. Yet, one day, she returned to the Castle changed in two ways; first, she had a beauty that would cause any man to look twice, and second, she had fallen into insanity. She - some of the things that she did, I will not recount - they are too horrible to contemplate. Somehow, in some manner unknown to either myself or the Count, she managed to dominate the other servants, force them to join in her - insalubrious activities, though they did not retain any memory of the things they had done. In the end, the Count was forced to turn them all out of the Castle, but two days ago. I stayed only for two reasons; first, because I refused to leave the Count alone with his sister, and secondly, it seems that she was unable to affect me in the manner of the other servants."

"Gentlemen, the route you were travelling would have taken you directly to the chambers in which she is currently imprisoned. I implore you, do not go there; we still do not know how she ruled over the minds of the other servants, and I would rather not give her the chance to claim any further victims."

"I think she might already have," Felix says. He goes about explaining what has happened thus far. "We came here to try and cure our companion and get to the root cause of this mess."

Ivan holds up his lantern, staring upwards at Theresa's face. "Her reach grows longer and more powerfully than we had feared," he says, worriedly. "Gentlemen - if you will give me your word that you will not kill Lady Stokes, then I believe that I can guide you to the place you seek."

"I don't trust him," says Theresa. "He looks shifty. What are you all talking about, anyway? Why's he looking at me like that?"

"You have my word," Felix says. Aside to Theresa, he speaks further. "He says he'll lead us to the lady. We're heading there currently. Please allow us to handle the situation as it develops, in case something or someone tries to intervene. Stand back."
