The weather got colder as Darn and Zara walked further from the city, snow drifts piled high along the sides of the road. Icicles hung from trees, and little red snowberries peeked from under dark green leaves. Following the directions on the poster, they turned from the main road and onto a side path. Shattered stone decorated the sides of the path, jagged edges open to the sky. It didn't take long for the forest to be broken up by ice encrusted columns, stone benches and toppled statues
Zara smiles at Darn. "I think we at least went the right way. I don't know how we will find a toy in all this snow though."
Darn shivers pulling his scarf higher above nose "Same..."he mumbles
A large snow man sits atop a chunk of stone, bright red scarf waving in the wind as he watches them with coal eyes.
"I thought this place is abandoned." Darn narrows his eyes at the snowman
Zara points, "Maybe next to that? I don't know what kind of child would come t
Heart and Home Ch 8
The Gallows felt hollow. Vast empty spaces, occupied by ash and blood, charred stone and smoke. Fenris glanced up at the Tevinter statues and shuddered. "We need to move," he hissed. Varric nodded but didn't budge. Hawke was less cautious, striding forward fearlessly. "Wait!" Carver called out, cradling Merrill tightly. His sister turned, blue eyes wide. "What is it?" "I smell lyrium," he replied, looking around. "You can smell it?" the Dalish asked. Carver mumbled a vague reply, cheeks flushed. At least Riese let him catch up, Fenris thought.
Isabela shrugged, "Didn't think we would get out that easy, did you? Id be more surprised not to see someone." Varric nodded, "Wouldn't make for much of a story." Merrill giggled softly, "No it wouldn't. And we all know Hawke is never boring." "Shut up," Fenris told her, stepping close to Riese. A clatter of bootsteps and armor silenced the group. The templars did not run, they marched, coming inexorably closer with
Maiden Fair Epilogue
The wedding the following day was the talk of Neverwinter for weeks after. The groom was splendid in a suit of gold and silver chased plate, looking every inch the towering knight. His lady, the lovely Pikala, and her 4 bridesmaids shone in the winter sun, gowns white and silver glistening like snow. If she was a bit pale, swaying like a branch in heavy wind, who could say? What bride wouldnt be, when marrying into such a prestigious family?
Strangely enough, a little white dog followed the bride down the aisle, connected to the wrist of a bridesmaid by a thin silver chain. It seemed to vanish at some point during the ceremony, and was not scene until the banquet hours later. Several guests complained of missing items, but those were returned by a laughing brother of the bride before the end of the celebrations.
A few days after the wedding Lemuil met with Darn, Zara, and Glory in his tailor shop. Darn took Lem aside, whispering t
Maiden Fair Logs
The story starts exactly where the intro left off, Zara and Darn at the Flagon listening to poor Pika and Lem
Zara glances at Darn and raises an eyebrow, "She sounds as bad off as that poor dwarf."
The man orders a glass of wine, not able to keep up with his sister as she drinks the vile Sundown
"And it sounds like she is willing to give something for ....whatever she wants..." Darn sizes the pair up wondering what they can offer
Zara stands up, "Let's see what we can do to help. Lathander never said good deeds had to go unrewarded."
"So should I be your paladin again?" Darn smirks
Zara grins, "I think you can just be your adorable self on this one." She walks over to the couple and taps the woman on the shoulder
Pika looks up with a tearstained face, eyes unfocused after several glasses of Sundown. "W-what do you want?"
Darn follows Zara looking at the red eyed woman "We noticed you crying, lady..." he looks at her as if he would feel sorry for her plight "..is th
