Grandmother Maiwen has given me a strange task indeed! It seems that she is curious as to the comings and goings at the House of the Harp. I'm not quite sure why..what is the link between Salgant and Maiwen? Surely she doesn't think he might have negative influences on me.
In any case, she is, as everyone knows, interested in everyone else's affairs, and there has been a cloaked stranger who could arouse suspicion in even the most innocent of minds. Like mine, I suppose grandmother meant.
Well, having interrogated a few individuals, it turns out this cloaked stranger arrived one evening, alone, stooped, in blacks and greys... The person I need most to speak to would be Elwen, who is of course in Anghabar (strange place to want to be) Ah! Nessimo might have more information. The steward brings Salgant breakfast in bed sometimes, and shares his problems with him.
Otherwise, I highly doubt this person comes from the House of the Fountain. They tend to flaunt themselves, and wouldn't hide behind a cloak. Likewise, for the House of the Golden Flower, Salgant hasn't been known to dally with any of them, save Glorfindel, but he does not stoop.
In fact, the more I think about, the more it seems this sort of shadowy, cautious, dark behaviour would be more suited to a member of the House of the Mole! Perhaps I should pay them a courtesy visit, I'm sure I could invent a plausible reason to speak to one of the Moles...
