HERE is the part before this one if you wish to read it again or havent read it yet ;)
Arrival at Windhelm, Irene and Alana walked straight to the market place.. maybe with luck Nilsine would be there, or if not Irene knew about someone there she could ask.. well, she would ask her anyway cause she didnt even know who Nilsine Shatter-Shield was. Walking through the cold streets of the city, hearing clang from the hammer hitting metal and Alana knew they were close to the market now since the Blacksmith was holding up his forge there. Walking past the Blacksmith, Alana decided to stop by there and have a chat with the fellow with the hammer.. while Irene would have a chat with Niranye. Alana would deffinately talk about daggers, cause now lately she wanted a new one but couldnt afford to an expensive one.. Irene knew that and perhaps she would surprise her one day.
"Hello Miss.. good to see you again, how's business going?" - Irene walked up to Niranye with a smile. She looks up, seeing who it was asking and smiles back to see her long time seen friend.
"Ah, looks who's stumbling back out of the pile of snow!" - the Elf said with a huge grin across her face... "my business is doing good!" ... Irene looked around at her stuff she was selling, yes.. she was a Mercenary gaining more respect from the Nords living in Windhelm than the other Elves.
"Here.. i have some arrows you can have.. see if you can sell them!" - Irene says bringing up some Elven arrows, Iron, Steel and Daedric arrows...
"Daedric arrows??? How the h... have you got these from? ... I thought Daedra's was almost impossible to kill.." - Niranye gasped seeing the arrows..
"They're not from any Daedric Lords or Princes if you think that.. some of the Dwemer Sphere's in a ruin me and my friend was in had it."
"Ah.. i see, thank you nevertheless!" - Niranye smiled, then looked at the other lass coming towards them to look at her wares.
"I see another customer comes.. i wont keep you busy but i have a question if i may?" - Irene asks nicely.
"Do you know anyone called Nilsine Shatter-Shield?" - Irene asks.. and before the Elf could answer, the other lass spoke out quickly without hesitation.. "yes, that would be me in fact!"
"Ah, just want to give you greetings from Muiri!" - Irene says with a smile, not knowing why Muiri want her killed since thats not any of the Dark Brotherhood's business to ask about the contracts given.
"Muiri! That backstabbing bi... Tell her to drown in the river of Markarth!" - Nilsine reacts with anger.
"Woaa.. okay okay.. i didnt know you two had such bad relationship going on.." - Irene looks at her surprised.
"Then.. i have nothing else to say to you.. leave me alone!" - Nilsine said as she wandered off with her basket filled with flowers.
"What was all that about?" - Niranye asked while looking at Nilsine walk down the street.
"Muiri just wanted me to send her greetings to her.. i thought they were friends!" - Irene answered, fully aware that she couldnt tell the Elf that she actually planned to kill her..
"Much has happened in their family.. they dont have it too good after Friga, her twin-sister was killed by the unknown killer you helped out to catch." - Niranye says, looking back at Irene.
"I see.. that explains her mood then perhaps.." - Irene looks at the Elf.. "alright, i'll see you later one day, me and my friend over there will go and have a rest at the Candlehearth Hall." ... Niranye waved her hand and smiled as Irene walked towards Alana who was already interupting the Blacksmith's work too much and dragged her with her.
"Come now, we're going to get some rest at Candlehearth Hall!" - She smiled while grabbing Alana's arm.
Irene and Alana stayed there until it became night, and now it was time to find House of Clan Shatter-Shield. They walked out of Candlehearth and walked around, past guards who had their nightwatch until they found the house.
"Alright, you wait out here while i sneak inside!" - Irene gives her a smile.
"Sure!" - Alana just answers looking after any sign Guards would appear while Irene lockpicked the door, and walked in slowly not to make too much noise.
Inside the house, Irene walked slowly.. trying her best even not to let the floor creak, walking across the room to the other room where Nilsine's mother was sleeping.. carefully turned around and walked upstairs to see her father was snooring like if he was sufficating, then the last room ofcourse lay Nilsine so peacefully in her bed, dreaming about her perfect husband she probably hoped to find in the future.. poor lass if that was true.. Irene lifted up her crossbow slowly, placing a bolt, reloading it then aims dirrectly at her.
"Poor lass!" - Irene thought looking at her peaceful sleepy expression.. then fired the bolt, right into her chest. Nilsine's eyes opened quickly as she saw Irene stand there, she was about to scream and Irene knew it would wake up her parents and all hell would get loose afterwards.. so she quickly leap'd forward placing her hand over her mouth to keep her silent, while moving her crossbow back on her back. Nilsine's eyes looked at Irene's eyes with such sad expression mixed with the pain afflicted by the bolt stuck in her chest.
"I'm.. sorry!" - Irene whispered to her still holding her hand in front of her mouth, and grabbed the bolt stuck in her chest with her other hand, quickly dragging it out. Nilsine struggled and tried to wrench herself out of Irene's grip, but even with her natural strenght, her Vampiric strenght also was mixed into it so it was no chance for her to get loose..
"Talos guide you!" - Irene whispered again, looking into her teary and scared eyes.. then thrusted the bolt into her heart to end her torture in a quick way. Said a final prayer to her and sliding her fingers across her eyes to close them, before pulling out the bolt again and walked out of her room slowly. Bringing the bolt with her to not let that be any help to the Guards to find out who the killer was. Seeing both her father and mother still sleeping, she sneaked out of the house, meeting Alana and then headed dirrectly back to Markarth.
Back in Markarth, Irene changed clothes to her Dark Brotherhood again and told Alana to get something to drink while walking to the room where Muiri was last time.. she wasnt there, so she walked to the room on the other side and there she was, sitting by the table, just finished eating her late dinner.
"You're.. back! Is.. Alain?" - Muiri hesitated to ask with nervousity.. having a member of the Dark Brotherhood with her alone wasnt exactly a comforting thought to her.
"Yes!" - Irene answered and closed the door so they would get interupted.
"And Nilsine?" ... and Irene nodded, then sat down on a chair next to hers.. breatheing out after the long trip back.
"Been a long trip.. this money would become more than handy to get something to drink and eat!" - Muiri says, giving Irene 1200 gold and a enchanted ring.. "thank you, i will never forget you!"
"And neither will i forget you!" - Irene says accepting the money and ring with a nod.. seeing Muiri's expression of concern.. "and dont worry, you dont have any contract over your head so the Dark Brotherhood wont kill you!" ... and Muiri sighted with almost relief, though she knew Irene wouldnt kill her anyway..
"Bye!" - Irene says right after and rose up from the chair.. walked over to where Alana had found a place at a table with food.
"Ah, hungry are you?" - she chuckled while pulling her hood off.
"Yes, i'm not a.. well, i'm not like you so i need food!" - Alana gave her a tease smirk. Irene sat down on the chair next to her to relax while she was eating.. she didnt plan to even drink some of the blood she had in vials right there descreetly cause didnt think Alana would appreciate that while eating.
After she was finished eating, and drank up the rest of her mead.. they headed out of the Silver-Blood Inn, and straight out the gate of Markarth.
"So.. Arkngthamz next, eh?" - Alana looked at Irene.
"Yes, if.. you want ofcourse?" - Irene looks back at Alana.
"Wouldnt dream of missing it! Even after what happened in Raldbthar.." - She smiled at Irene.
"Alright then!" - Irene smiled back as they both continued to walk.
But they didnt get far before something happened... "goddamnit!" - Irene hear Alana swear loudly, and turns around seeing her lying on her stomach facing the road.
"You alright?" - Irene asks as she kneels down to help her up.
"Yep.. just a stupid rock i didnt see.." - Alana murmured, emberrassed that she have trip'd and fell like that.
"Poor rock!" - Irene grins at her.
"Ye ye.. pity the rock.. sure!" - Alana shook her head.
"But i pity you more!" - Irene smiles at Alana... "but i'm sure i just heard wings behind me, just right... now.."
"Maybe you should look behind you and see for yourself!" - Alana looks over Irene's shoulders while unsheathing her dagger. And Irene turns around to see the face of a Dragon swoop down right in front of her, speaking some Dragon tounge words before loading up his breath of frost towards the two ladies.
"Too... cold..." - Alana shivers not knowing where to go, to get away from the steam of frost.. but the Dragon stopped after 2 seconds and Irene cast'd a healing spell on Alana quickly before looking at the Dragon again and brushes some piece of ice off her skin and clothes.
"Huh.. is that all you can give us?" - She shrugs her shoulders and gives the Dragon a taunty grin, then sheathing her sword.. and when the Dragon growls in anger at her, and tries to bite she dodges with quick reflexes and perfect timing, grabbing his ear, takes a professional 360 just for fun before she sits perfectly on his head. The Dragon rise up, shakes his head to make her fall off but with no use.. and right at that moment, her sword goes through his head. The Dragon screams in pain as darkness fills his eyes before falling down on the ground with a loud bang, sending Irene to do a final show, rolling around on the ground while sheathing her sword, stops up and give Alana a smirk.
"That was... actually pretty cool.. and now comes the most faschinating part.." - Alana smiles back while watching the Dragon's soul get absorbed into Irene's body.
"It tickles.. but i still dont know how i do it.." - Irene answers after she have absorbed it all.
"Maybe you should go visit the Greybeards? They might have answers which can help you." - Alana says while sheathing her dagger and starts walking with Irene next to her.
"The Greybeards?" - Irene looks at Alana with a puzzled expression.
"Dont tell me you dont know about them?"
"No.. should i?"
"If i have knew you didnt know about them, i should have told you for long time ago.." - Alana just shook her head.. but right at that moment, a random bear came.. also swooping down the mountainside, trying to give Alana a high-five which he failed because Irene's electricity hits his leg.. and Alana does a quick job ending his life with her dagger.
"Well cooperated battle that was!" - a familiar voice called out after the bear was dead.. and Irene looks to the direction where it came from and see Vilkas coming down the road with Ria on his side.
"Vilkas! A surprise sight to see you here, with Ria too." - Irene says walking towards them closer.
"Likewise!" - Vilkas smiles to her... "been alittle while now.. what you two doing anyway?"
"Right now.. we're going to a Dwemer ruin." - Alana answers.
"Want to come with us?" - Irene asks right after.
"I'm afraid we cant.. are doing some other business at the moment which cant be abandoned!" - Vilkas' expression gets more serious.
"What business then?" - Irene decides to ask with curiousity.
"Some people have sighted two wild Werewolves roaming around the Reach.. asked the Companions to deal with that threat cause they seem to be quite hostile, attacks anyone on sight with pure rage and hatred only to get fresh food." - his serious expression still the same.
"Thats no good..." - Irene around the area for a moment... "I and Alana will keep a look out for them, thanks for the info!"
"Sure thing, and be careful.. they're not just strong.. but hyperactivily fast too, i've been told!" - Vilkas warned, then gave both her and Alana a clap on the shoulders.. and Ria just looked at Irene with a concern expression.
"Its okay i've said.." - Irene gives her a smile then just reach out her hands to give her a hug.. then Ria gives Alana a quick hug too before running after Vilkas who now was many meters ahead.
"She's so cute with her shyness!" - Irene says to Alana while looking at Ria run after Vilkas.
"She sure is!" - Alana just giggled, before they both continued towards Arkngthamz.. running past a Orc Stronghold which they have visited earlier, before seeing the entrence of the Dwemer ruin.
"Whoaa.. did you just feel that?" - Alana regained her balance.
"I sure did... an earthquake? here? ... now thats not really good..." - Irene looks around.
"Should we really go in?" - Alana looks at Irene with abit of concern, seeing her think for a moment..
"It was just a little shake.. perhaps its over now, but for the risk involved, maybe you should stay here?" - Irene looks back at Alana with serious expression.
"No way! I'm going with you!"
"Okay okay.. lets go in then!" - Irene says as she opens the door and walks in.
