He cackled silently - more in the shoulders, less in the mouth - at her reaction to the spider, but stopped when she actually had something parchment-like in her hands to bargain with! He blew the spider away right off his palm, leaving it to find itself a new crevice for a fresh web, and jogged after his elder sister in indignation.

She came to a stop eventually, engrossed in the papers. He prodded her gently in the back, wishing he were more than an inch taller than her so he could read better over her shoulder, but mouthing at her repeated until she next looked at him. WHO? He had to know who had murdered the kitchen boy as desperately as she did, sure that this must be the footman’s diary, and even surer she had found something. He widened his eyes quizzically: Does it say?

OOC: Oops I missed this and let it die... and just before the murder reveal too! XDD

Eloquence stared at the torn journal entries, transfixed, then turned slowly to regard her brother, who gazed at her with curiosity that demanded to be satisfied. She was done squealing at spiders and giggling over unexpected hiding places; what she clutched in her hand now was serious business.

"It was he — the footman." She stood beside Nelson so they could share in the reading; Loq's dark eyes darted from left to right as she deciphered the footman's handwriting; which was much messier here than it had been in the rest of the journal.

"It seems he had quite the eventful fortnight... he writes of a secret, look here... and a kitchen boy who discovered his secret... the boy walking in on the footman and the lady of the house being — gosh, oh dear..." She couldn't read that surely, but she already had, and it was seared into her mind, which for all its murder mysteries was quite innocent of what the footman and the lady had been up to.

Fingers now pressed to her lips, eyes still wide, she looked to the second piece of parchment once more, concluding in a hushed voice: "the kitchen boy attempted to blackmail him... so the footman... the footman shut him up."
