One-half of Deux Lectrices, writing about the things I read.
The Duke of Greythorne just stood there, stoic and expressionless.
Not ringing a bell.
Also, speaking of being seen with this mysterious DUKE, if people know who he was (since he did not introduce himself at the prison), then, if Dalton noticed he was poking around for Jasper, people must've asked for info. Do you remember arriving, with this DUKE, at the hotel? Do you remember Emily's massive mechanical cat that the hotel realistically would not allow on the premises?
Yeah, people would talk about that. "Hey, there's that girl that had the giant cat, who was also seen with that DUKE everyone keeps talking about! Since that Mary Sue character is also with her, I bet they're in leagues with him too!"
