Story description[edit | edit source]

When you enter, the Lady of the Cages is sitting on the window-sill, staring out at her gardens. On the desk is an open casket: within are ten gleaming vials of red honey, carefully packed.

"Freshly harvested by the Melliferous Sisters. Touch them, go on. They're still warm from the honey-spinner!" Zaira turns toward you. "They are for the Merchant Venturer, over in London. You'll take them for me, won't you? Unless you already have? No. Clearly not. No."

Interactions[edit | edit source]

Actions Requirements Effects Notes

You are hardly squeamish about smuggling red honey. If you change your mind, you could always turn the shipment over to the Admiralty instead.

"Do say hello to the Merchant Venturer for me, won't you? He was such a awful child." Zaira's lips curve into something like a smile. "I drank the memories of someone that went to school with him." You must make some sort of sound, because she gives you a little shrug. "I like to know my business partners. It was Leopold's idea, of course. He's very thorough."

You think of lamplighter bees and Cage-Gardens, and your mouth, of its own volition, shapes a refusal.

"You are a smuggler aren't you? Or are you the painter? No, that's someone else." Zaira sighs. "It seems very strange - a smuggler that doesn't want to smuggle. But maybe you - ? No. Oh dear. I've been insensitive, haven't I? I'm terribly sorry. I'm sure you can't help it. The cowardice, I mean."
