The carriage eventually rattled to a stop and the door opened, revealing Ronald dressed in a well-worn suit and smiling.

I made a move towards the door but Lilith cleared her throat loudly.

"Ladies first." she reminded, smiling in amusement.

"Oh. Right." 

She stepped delicately out of the carriage and I followed, squinting as the sun hit my eyes.

A building was looming just in front of us, but it wasn't like any building I'd ever seen before. 

It was completely built from grey stone, with one main body and squat, square towers rising above it. Green ivy grew completely up one of the walls, the leaves rippling in the breeze. Something about it exuded an air of aristocracy, but I couldn't put my finger on what it was.

A man in ridiculously ceremonial garb stepped up, took the reins of the horses and another came to escort us in. 

The End
