Though none of his business, it did spark an idle curiosity. He laughed at the phrase, a clean and unrestrained noise, and bowed his head to Bethany. "Of course, Commander." When he straightened his neck, his smile twitched upon being contained. "I look forward to speaking to you after your business is concluded."
He stepped back, silently responding to Alistair disengaging from the conversation. "I'm known for asking too many questions, so perhaps if you aren't a concise man- you ought to bring her. At least she'd eventually guide us to one point or another. Maker knows we'd never find it on our own."
