In all of this madness, there were a few elements that were keeping him sane. For one thing, there was Alva. She'd been there through all of the madness, and neve seemed to object to being his distraction when all else was futile. For another, there was the trouble on Crackclaw point. Kai found that he spent most of his time thinking about it, and that encounter in the tavern. There was no loosely confirmed proof that the bandits had organized. Because of this, they would be harder to handle. If there was any level of loyalty between them, they would be harder to divide. It would be more challenging to get one to turn on the others. The problem in all of this was that Kai didn't want to slaughter them if it wasn't necessary, and he wasn't going to beg or scrape for an alliance. Especially after this tourney, he wasn't going to be able to show that kind of weakness. He was going to be a Targaryen, and a Targaryen didn't beg for loyalty.
The problem with all of this was that there was one glaringly obvious plan that he didn't want to resort to. Matarys might well agree to help - he'd been agreeable every time the pair of them spoke, and Kai had no reason to fear animosity with his Stark-looking brother. Gods would it ever stop being weird to think of them as such? Kai sincerely doubted it. It was that level of weirdness that left him not wanting to ask. Three of his new brothers rode dragons. A dragon would go a long way to gaining the cooperation of the bandits. Sure, he had Aerie now! But she was a baby, and she wouldn't be large enough to be a threat for several years yet. Until then, he would only have manpower - and that hadn't been enough for the past several decades.
Now, what the point needed was change. It needed a new angle that hadn't been approached before. In order to attempt his idea however, he would need help. While he had four options of people to ask, there was only one he dared speak to just now. Of all his new family, Aelix was the one Kai felt the most comfortable with. Aelix was the only one that didn't seem to have a layer of weirdness between them. Maybe it would all smooth out with the others, in time, but Kai wasn't sure he had time. Anyway, Aelix would be perfect! He felt comfortable with the youngest prince, and a boy his age would surely love to be more involved in things. At least Kai could hope as much.
A few people had begun to filter into Summerhall for the event, including Aelix. Surely he couldn't be too hard to find. The guards would constantly be watching him, so someone was bound to be able to point him in the right direction. With Aerehra safely tucked into a cage in his room, Kai set out to find Aelix. He had only to ask around for a moment, before he was pointed in the right direction. He stopped at the doorway of the room, once he spotted Aelix, and knocked on the frame to announce himself. "Do you have a moment? There was something I was hoping you could help me with." Kai offered as way of greeting.
