The Keelish escorted him out of the works and in to the upper city. There, they loaded him on to a secure transport vehicle, they put him in the back, where there were no windows, two benches on each side, and heavy enforced plate walls and doors. Not a moment after he sat down and the back doors closed and locked, the vehicle motioned.
When the doors next open and Felix steps out, he is in a wide open space, inside. There were other similar vehicles parked about the place, and what appeared to be an operating station to service them. One of the cybermancer guards came over to Felix and shoved him forward to get him moving as he was looking around.
He continued to follow the Keelish woman in to a slick circular elevator. They came in, the doors elegantly slid closed from both sides, and it began to ascend. When they next opened, a new image of majesty would appear before Felix’s eyes.
Smooth and shining clean white panels with slick golden frames and accents built a grand hall, with quarts statuettes and a golden monument in the middle of it all. Small blue lights adorned the monument, the doors, bases of pillars, and stairways as bright white lanterns illuminated the room. People were standing about or sitting on elegant white benches, discussing who knows what in the Keelish tongue as guards in pure black and dragon like suits stood guard at every doorway, on each side.
The woman quickly grabbed Felix under one arm and pulled him out of the area before people could get curious and walked him up a flight of stairs to a double door.
She stopped, sighed with relief, and looked at Felix.
’‘There’s someone who is most eager to meet you. Do try to behave this time.’’
She opened the door and motioned Felix to enter.
After him, the others would follow and shut the door behind them.
The room looked like a living room, with three sofas around a central lower table. It was in the same white and gold style as the rest of the building. Across the room opposite the entry point was a wall of glass with a double door which lead to a balcony. An said balcony a Keelish male stood, wearing a white robe, puffing smoke from his herbal stick.
When he heard people enter, he turned around, moved back indoors, and gestured Felix to be seated on a sofa around the low table.
