"I though it'd suit you," Dorothea mused, giving Kassandra the little book. "If you're not used to magic it may be a bit overwhelming...but it's very useful." She sighed, letting her hair down. "I had a wonderful time tonight, Kass. It's nice to just get out and enjoy yourself in the midst of everything."

Kassandra flipped through the book briefly. It all looked quite complicated...but she'd give it a closer look later. "It's the company that makes it, and I had a wonderful time as well. Thank you for showing me around your home. I hope I can return the favor someday."

"I'd like nothing more." Dorothea came up to Kassandra and pulled her into an embrace that only lasted a few seconds before she pulled away. "You might want to get some sleep. I wonder what tomorrow will bring..."

"Knowing what we're involved in, probably trouble," Kassandra quipped. "Perhaps it is time for me to get some rest. Though..." She sniffed the air. "Perhaps I should take a bath before I do. Does the palace have an area to clean yourself?"

"There's a bath on this floor, in the opposite direction of the guest rooms. Both private for one person, or a small community one. I'll have to thank Hapi for finding those restricted blueprints, they've been a lifesaver here."

Kassandra nodded. "Thank you, I'll have to swing by there before bed." The Eagle-Bearer was starting to leave before she turned around and gave Dorothea a kiss on the cheek. "I had fun tonight. Have a good night, and I'll see you in the morning." With that she took her leave and tried to find the baths.

As Dorothea said the baths were right on the other side and hard to miss. Kassandra could easily go and take a private one if she preferred getting clean and going right to bed, or take a chance in the public bathing area and see if anyone else was up this late.

Kassandra had gotten herself ready for a quick soak and going to bed, but she was curious to see if anyone was still awake and instead went into the public bath area got herself ready and went into the bath area.

The steam in the public bath made the the room hot and humid, but at just the right point where it was soothing rather than uncomfortable. Kassandra would find she was not alone, after all: her fellow bounty hunter, Balrog, was currently leaned back in the large community bath, eyes closed and a rare look of pure bliss on his face.

Seeing that Balrog seemed to be lost in thought Kassandra didn't want to bother him and instead slipped quietly into the water and leaned back as well a few bits away from him.

She didn't want to get him into a bad mood after all. Instead, her mind drifted to earlier today and the situation Kassandra now found herself in. She had toppled secret cabals and monsters of myth before but the situation she found herself in now felt overwhelming in how little she actually knew about the situation. The concept of the Mementos and the thefts were clear, but everything else. Plus now she started to second guess herself about revealing the situation to Dorothea. If someone found out...she let out a heavy sigh and dropped her head under the water and stayed there for a moment.

By the time she would get out of the water, she would see Balrog had gotten out (a towel around his waist fortunately) and was pouring himself a glass of wine. "Oh, you didn't drown." He said it in such a way that it sounded like if she had, he wouldn't have done anything about it.

"I did not," She replied back. "Just needed to clear my thoughts. It's bad to leave things to fester before bedtime." She felt it was best to not say more about the matter and changed the subject. "I assume you have had a fulfilling day as well? The way you spoke earlier implied that this place is not like you're used to."

"It sure isn't. But I'll manage." Balrog chuckled to himself. "I dunno anything about the old emperor or that war, but man! Even without wifi this place is fancier than any casino I've seen back in Vegas. I could get used to living here..."

"The well off and upper-class always live lavishly," Kassandra replied in a matter of fact tone. "While the rest live in squalor, but I understand what you mean. Being here has been quite an experience." She shuffled in the water a bit as she leaned over to the edge of the pool. "I've understood the old Emperor was young but wise, I'd much like to meet her if given the opportunity."
