Sigrún: If they did catch us spying, it’s likely sir Thorn won’t rent Leif again . . .
Ludolf: He’s already scheduled another order.
All our recordings suggest that Thorn’s attachment to Leif is genuine, and growing. Even if he suspects us, he won’t suspect Leif, and will want to keep seeing him. That’s why I brought this to you in the first place. There has to be a way we can use it.
Sigvard: If this guy won’t suspect your servant is spying on him . . . can’t you just order the servant to spy on him? Then you’d have a backup in case of . . . tech issues.
Ludolf: Pfft. If only it was that easy.
Servants aren’t crystals. You can’t just re-program them so they’re capable of doing anything you need. Even if in some ways Leif is . . . more programmable than most.
