Whoops! I put the speech as well as the thoughts in italics. It would be easy to miss the speech marks then. Don't worry, I've just edited and fixed that, sorry for the ambiguity about what Sar'geth was saying and what he was thinking. Thanks for notifying me DDM.
Mal, just to be clear about something I now recognise could be quite ambiguous about my last IC post: Sar'geth is waiting for IC permission from Kourla or Viseryn to take Arkeith's head - unless you want to give me OOC permission here, I don't want to have Sar'geth just get the head - I think its only suitable to his character that he's too afraid of the repercussions of doing it without authorisation. Once I get OOC/Sar'geth gets IC permission, then I'll make my next IC post.
