"Best friend?" the first guard says, "Ran away?"

The second says, "Mistress Holordael, your friend can be found 
at the inn beyond the gates. I will escort you to her."

"Hal!" the second guard calls out and a young man trots over.

"Yes Sir?" he asks.

"Keep guard with Billy while I escort this woman to the inn." 
and then the guard leads Jhosne through the gates and toward 
the inn.

Upon reaching the inn, the guard opens the door and says, 
"After you."

Inside the inn, seated at a table with another woman and three 
men, Jhosne sees Dyee. Her friend has been in an animated 
conversation, but everyone stops and looks at the door...and 
Jhosne when she enters.

There is a light of recognition in Dyee's eyes when she sees 
her friend standing in the doorway.
