[ if you don't think/feel like y/c would help with these types of things, please don't stress! it's not a requirement <3 have a wonderful day <33 ]
Aleksei had said that she could pick and choose the Trainees as she pleased, but after a while, she feared favoritism. Truly, she had her own favorites and... least favorites, to put nicely. And while Persephone was all for the acceleration of her own career, she wasn't for sabotaging someone else's. So, she sent out a little messenger to each of the Paladin Trainees, that if they wanted to come help with event planning, they were free to. And, if they didn't, they didn't have to show their faces. Simple, really.
She hoped that a few of them would show up soon, as her own uncertainty had cost them a few days of planning by this point.
