Lucrezia hid herself partially behind Maria, but was watching Alessandro with a burning interest."That I can do." Maria replies, having concluded that would be the likely response, but warns "But you must be careful. There are many things below the surface of this matter that I do not yet understand, so I must cast my net over those I can perceive for now."
Thus said, she gestures to the stairs down to the garden, and leads Lucrezia (And Lumio as well, after a glance behind her in his direction) to a more challenging artistic pursuit.
Maria's question to Giovanni and Alessandro is rather less courtly in tone, consisting of a terse "So, have we a workable plan to contain the crabs, Signors?" and a casual introduction of "Alessandro, this is Lucrezia. She will be observing and recording the investigation below."
"So far it would be best to use strong nets that can be hung from the ceiling and weighted below, but long enough that they will move a little when pushed into so that it harder to cut through them. Solid obstacles like boxes would tend to be easier to break or displace." Alessandro replies.
Lumio looked at the two men, " Nets....chests...planks.....alright, I will get some men to set those up.....uh....inside the tunnel? On the steps or below them?""Indeed. Though I think we should keep some heavy chests and planks on hand as well, just in case."
