Anass was right at the door when he noticed something.
The central mirror. The mirror directly opposite him. It wasn't showing him, Ismat, and Ode. It was showing the room and surroundings otherwise, but not them.
Instead it showed a different figure. A silvery humanoid clad in a black hooded cloak. The being's face was a featureless silvery mass, completely smooth - not even the suggestion of facial features - unlike the creature that had posed as Lawahiz.
It was watching him and the others. He could feel its gaze on them.
