The wind was rushing through his hair as he stood at the Bough of the ship his arm wrapped around the lion’s head at the front. as his ship along with the two ship escort that his grandfather had insisted on. The moment that they entered Blackwater Bay. Ezekiel gave the signal to raise the Lannister flag on his ship and signaled the other two to raise the banner of the Maegar family with two tigers circling one another. If nothing else this should not make the city raise the alarms or fight him. A couple hours moving at a slower rate as he was sure sentries would report the presence of a Lannister ship. He preferred to be announced. At least his ship as not to worry the people. Especially as looking along the shore lines he saw remnants of a burnt fleet. He and his ships arrived in port not seeing many ships and was beginning to wonder if they had been the ones to lose their fleet. he heard from the shore someone calling out. “The lead vessel indeed bears the Lannister banner. The other are from Volantis.” With that he saw someone get on a horse and head off. Ezekiel thought it was an odd sort of welcome. Then returning to his cabin he put on his best clothes and wearing his father’s sword he grabbed two of his guards and a few of his men and they took a smaller boat into the docks. He gave orders that the men were to come into the city in shifts for leave and to enjoy the pleasures of the city.
Ezekiel was not foolish enough to leave his ships at less than half capacity. Even if his family ruled here it was impossible to trust pirates or anyone else. He made his way meeting mixed reactions from the people. He smiled and waved and for the most part that helped. He leaned over to one of his guards. “Once we meet my family find out what is going on. My father told me last time he was here there was a parade in his honor.” his men nodded and would get more of the crew to talk to the people. After about half an hour he arrived outside the red Keep and the guards seemed concerned as they quickly stood aside.
Walking inside the high ceilings and looking through he realized his father had not done the descriptions justice then seeing the Iron Throne it was a sight to see. Though he heard all the muttered voices as he moved through the crown and saw his nephew on the throne and then saw his cousin Cersei at his side then his uncle on his other side. Ezekiel came forward taking a knee. “It is my honor to be here though I wish….” He could not finish as he was interrupted by his uncle. “Who are you and why did you arrive in my brother’s ship?” The coldness of the voice startled him. “I was about to say I have arrived because my father Gerion Lannister died due to injuries he received in his journey to the Smoking Sea. My name is Ezekiel Lannister. He married my mother before the rebellion. My father told me he did not tell you Lord Tywin that he told his niece and nephews, your children.” He nodded in the direction of Cersei and she seemed startled but she turned her head and nodded at her father. “My father told me of you your grace how he took you out on his ship when you were but a boy with your mother and father. He said that you had quite the sea legs.” Ezekiel noticed the king’s smile and found it to be slightly unnerving. Then he spoke, “I like him grandfather make sure he and some of his men have a place in the city, and send the Silent Sisters to prepare my Great Uncle’s body.” Ezekiel stood “Thank you your grace I would like to send my men back tell my crew.” He smiled waving casually his consent.
Ezekiel stood there not sure what to do as he had finished talking and the room was painfully quiet then he heard another voice and saw it was the queen regent talking to a young woman. He could not fully hear what she was saying but she was speaking to a beautiful dark haired woman. Then he heard the queens voice clearly. “Please go with my daughter whilst we finish here.” Ezekiel bowed and then started moving forward looking at the beautiful young princess. When he got closer to her as guards opened the doors for them. “I am sorry to say I am unsure of your name.”
