It had been a busy last several months for Taori, to say the least. There were more than a few social and political problems to be worked out amongst the Saiyans after the war, and a whole lot of meetings that devolved into angry shouting between either locals, nobles, or merchants, to which Taori was forced to try his best to play the mediator - though, to be honest, that was very much not something that was within his skillset. He'd vied for the role of King to end the Saiyan Tuffle War, though, to be honest, he hadn't given a whole lot of thought to the fact that there'd be another sixty or so years left to live as King after that.
So far the plans for the counterattack on Arcose were at something of a standstill, in spite of the preparations that had begun not long after the end of the war against the Tuffles. And, perhaps that was for the best. They still needed to recover and rebuild after their own decades long war, and thrusting the Kingdom straight into another war that could potentially last beyond the current regime's lifetime may have been unwise.
Besides... Azoth was dead, and Taori had to imagine his empire was in something close to shambles. Those ruled by fear and might had no reason to stick around once the source of that fear and might was gone, Taori figured.
But that was enough introspection - too much of that just made his head hurt. There was something else on Taori's mind, and that was, well, something that was on a need to know basis. And it was something he really only felt inclined to trust family with, but Alpinia also recommended letting that 'nice young man from the rubble clearing' join as well, so... Taori had sent out a summons for Delia and Dark, one of which he knew well and one of which he was used to seeing simmer around Sadala every now and then.
He was currently awaiting their arrival in the lobby of the castle, pacing impatiently back and forth as he occasionally glanced up at the clock. In spite of the fact that this was a far more idle summons than usual, Taori was feeling even more nervous about it. So, when would they arrive...?
