The city of Kenabres was much quieter the next day. Which unsettled Shayliss to no end. Before it was expected to hear demonic screeching, yells, screams and burning buildings even if what remained in the city was those demons who just want to have fun with their prey. Now, those sounds could still be heard, but they were far off and sparse. Granted that did mean the citizens would be safer and the demons probably had their fill for now. But Shayliss could not help but feel a surge of apprehension shoot down her spine.

18 Arodus, 4692 AR; Horgus’s Manor, Kenabres
The rest of the trip to the Horgus’s Manor was relatively uneventful, not that Shayliss was really paying attention. She watched blindly as the group easily dealt with a couple of robbers and a demon that managed to sneak up on them. Her blade had not risen to do battle but Shadowshine did. Shayliss could feel every impact against flesh vibrate through her body but did not react to it. The thoughts running through her mind were trapped within that square.

Shayliss jolted up and down in the saddle as Shadowshine raced through the debris filled streets of Kenabres. Thankfully the horse directed itself around the obstacles and toward the scream they heard because Shayliss did not think she would be able to with how fast the beast was moving. It took all of her concentration just to keep on the saddle.

Their footsteps thudded against stone as the group marched from the smoldering remains of the Blackwing Library. After two hours of work and tons of magically conjured water, they had all managed to get the building from an inferno to ashes and scarred ruins. Seeing that their work was done, the group had decided that they needed to move on. Horgus had been practically chomping at the bit to get home and Anevia, while not outwardly agitated, kept to herself.

Radiant light erupted from Strune’s blade as she swept it in a horizontal strike aimed right at Chaleb’s head. The attack had nearly been perfect. Wind whistled as Radiance cut through it and Shayliss could feel the power behind the attack. There was no hesitation, no doubt, no loss of purpose. Strune understood and was willing to kill this man, an ex-Crusader and ex-paladin.

Ever since they fell into the tunnels and caverns underneath Kenabres, Shayliss had done her best to make sure she did not think about what may have been happening within the city. It would have been a great distraction to the battles of life and death she had been a part of in the past three or four days. But, since they had left the maze and its horde of mongrelmen and cultists behind, she could not help but put the condition of the city in the forefront of her thoughts.

18 Arodus, 4692 AR; Mongrel Base
The base had grown quiet since the group’s fight with Hosilla, the human cultist. It was as if her death stopped the alarms and fighting all together. Shayliss knew that was not true. The mongrelmen were just waiting for the group to poke their head out from around a corner carelessly. That way they can send arrows into the group’s skulls.

Strune stepped forward and pointed her slightly glowing longsword at the human woman, “Stand down. There has been enough blood drawn.â€

Standing in front of the traitor’s base, Shayliss wondered if ignoring â€~herself’ was such a great idea. The previous night had been hours of fun, laughter and play. They had tasted the exotic drinks the mongrelmen brewed from the biolucent fungus, which managed to give the drinks a strangely sweet taste. They danced the rather awkward and strange dances that the mongrelmen made look elegant and beautiful and they even learned a new card game the mongrelmen had created. Shayliss felt the corner of the massive box the mongrelmen handed her poking at her back through the backpack she had also been given for holding the game’s collection of cards. Even Snaga came from his self-entrapment of a room and observed.

Lann stepped forward and gave the man a very human-like and formal bow. When she saw that Crel, Dyra and Strune were doing the same, Shayliss decided to follow their lead. She was taught that a lady ought to curtsy, bending at the knees with arms out to the sides. Yet, she did not want to offend, so she bent down in a bow. It was very uncomfortable and most likely showed various pieces that should not be shown, but the Chief was pleased anyway.
