"Is it over?"
"Yes Boris, it is" I said while helping him up. "My bar, just look at it!" Boris wailed. "THis should be enough to fix any damages" THe dark one said while pulling a large back of coins from the belt of the fallen Orlyn, stolen coins no less.
We went outside the pub and discussed where we were going to travel to next.
"So where do your travels take you Milady?" The dark one asked.
"I....." I stuttered, unsure of whether to let them know of my mission. I then realized I would need to trust someone if I were to make it to hidden grove.
"I am traveling to Hidden Grove." I said
"Well, you have quite the journey ahead of you. But, I know I will not mind helping you every step of they way" The tall one said.
"I will have to agree. I will be honored to travel with you till you find your destination," the dark one added.
They mounted their steeds and that's when I relized I had walked to the pub that day. I looked around and noticed a White Stallion tied underneath a tree. It was Orlyn's horse, but now it was mine. I untied it and mounted the great beast.
We rode off while the sun sank past the earth. Traveling far off into the next few towns. It was getting darker and it made it hard for us to keep riding so we stopped at a cozy inn for rest. Dismounting and tying our steeds, I realized I didn't even catch the gentlemens names.
"I just realized something, I didn't catch either of your names."
"I am Josiah" The tall one said.
"And I am Arkham" The dark one answered.
"I see, I am Geneva, very pleased to make your aquaintance. Now that we've had a proper introduction, shall we?" I said, motioning to the inn door.
Upon entering we are greeted by a little old woman with greying hair and a sweet smile.
"How are you three this evening? Must be very weary from your travels."
"I would like a room for the night please kind lady" I asked.
"We would also like a room" Arkham asked.
"A room for the lady and a room for the gentlemen. Right this way". We followed the lady to another side of the inn. Our rooms were side by side, one room, had two beds, the fellows rooms of course.
"Have a lovely nights rest, if you need anything, you can ask me" The old woman said. Thanking her we went to our own rooms. I unhooked my belt and set it on a corner table, along with my arm cuff and sandals. I looked around the room and found a wooden armoire on one side of the wall. To my convenience I found a variety of nightgowns, blankets, and sheets. I pulled out one of the white night gowns and changed out of my armor. I walked over to the window and opened it. I leaned onto the windowsill staring at the night sky. The stars glittered accross the blanket of black that had become the sky.
"Lovely isn't it?" Josiah asked. I turned to see him leaning out of the window to his room. His skin seemed to glow in the moonlight.
"Yes, it is." I turned and looked back up at the sky.
"Milady" I heard a voice say. I turned and noticed Josiah wasn't in the window anymore. "Hello? Who said that?" I turned but still saw nothing.
"Over here milady" I heard the voice say. Out from the shadows Arkham came.
"Why are you out there?" I asked
"I thought I saw something, but I didn't find anything, it must've just been a cat".
"I could barely see you out there"
"Yes, that is one of the advantages I have. Well, goodnight milady"
I tucked into bed and blew out the candle next to me. I lay, feeling my self slowly drift off. I was dreaming soundly when I heard a noise outside the window. I got up and quietly peeked out from behind the curtain. Seeing nothing I opened the window and looked out, noticing that the men's window was wide open. I went out of my room and knocked on the men's door. When nobody answered I tried the knob and it opened. Both men had gone! I ran back to my room and noticed that someone had left a small axe in the wooden table next to my window. I grabbed my daggers and climbed out the window...
