She is interrupted by dame Perla, who notices her eavesdropping. Then Meori talks to Carolandra and James. Carolandra invites Veronica to join them and Meori leaves to inform her.
Cut goes back to the banquet and he “socializes”. He sends a text message to the home base and is soon sought out by the charioteer chick.
