Medivh, strangely enough, didn't look like he believed either of them. He remained stone-faced through both alibis, only shifting to look from one outworlder to another as they wove their defense. Seeing that Gale had nudged them in the right direction but they still teetered on the knife's edge, Azma went for that last push that would hopefully be all they needed. "We could've made a mess of this entire city block before you even touched down, but instead of that, we agreed to a sit-down with you." He stood back up, spreading his hands plaintively, even if none of that humility showed on his face. "If you still don't believe us, then what's stopping you from making good on your threat and leaving the Little Lion in Stormwind to explain to Mox Nine's leadership why his most trusted adviser and the Guardian of the Realm came to the middle of their city, cast a few killing spells on unknown individuals, and promptly left?" His grin widened. "We
certainly can't stop you, Guardian, from doing whatever you want, but can the Alliance really afford more scrutiny while He Who Sits On the Throne remains silent?"
Rule number one with humans was that if seduction or offering the path of least resistance didn't work, blackmail would most likely suffice.
The Guardian regarded them impassively for several long seconds. "Very well," he finally said carefully, those mana-rich eyes still boring into the couple of infernal miscreants. "I will permit you passage on this plane; be warned, however, that you are being watched, and should either of you prove to be lying to me, then nothing short of the Aurelian leading another of his damned Black Crusades from the tomb of the Mad Titan itself will stop me from finding you and sundering you so utterly that Asmodeus' flesh pits would not use your cursed essence in the reconstitution of a single imp.
" Such was the power put into the threat that even Azma quailed from making a flippant remark in the face it.
For a few seconds, anyway.
"From your lips to Light's ears," the demon half-smiled.
