Lys: Guidance

Entering the atrium, Aithne found everything ready for breakfast, and some already finding places, but the Guttersnipe was nowhere to be found. It occured to her that perhaps she'd been left with the duty of waking her.

In that case... Portia, ever helpful, was just passing at the time. "Portia, can you tell me the way to Lord Ambrosius's quarters? I'm to wake the Guttersnipe and I've no idea where to go."
