“So finally the Lady of the Vale has been summoned by the Joint Investigation Team (JIT) at the tail end of its stipulated time, I mean the Lady was the beneficial owner so why wasn’t she the first one summoned?”

“Lady of the Vale?”

“In the hugely popular Game of Thrones, the Lady of the Vale – her name was Lysa – killed her first husband and was killed by the second husband…”

“And you really think that is an appropriate analogy for Maryam Nawaz?”

“No, I apologize profusely, I meant the Lady of the Lake, ruler of Avalon and the one who gave King Arthur his sword and…”

“Hmmm, that’s more like it, ruler of Aavlon, but that is a legendary island; there is nothing legendary about our Maryam Nawaz.

“I thought PID said they give publicity to the Prime Minister and his cabinet and Maryam Nawaz is not a member of the cabinet, is not part of the federal government so you reckon the PID would not send a report on how brave she was and how…”

“Oh shush”

“Seriously, let’s wait and see what happens on 5 July but I bet you she commands the attendance of a bunch of cabinet members, I don’t recall did any federal minister come with our SS?”

“AID, but I heard during the car drive, Chaudhry Nisar kept talking to SS and Dar sat quietly in the back seat taping the…”

“Oh don’t be facetious.”
