Lore

Sore and tired, Shaleigh slumped down on a low stone wall next to her father.  She was exhausted and in no mood to do any more practice today. The sun was setting now, the blue of the clear sky slowly surrendering to shades of orange as it dipped below the horizon.  A gentle breeze blew, the lazy gusts rolling slowly through the grassy fields all around them. It was the most beautiful evening they had seen in some time.

"Shal, you know one day I won't be here to teach you any more of this.  You’ll miss me then, just wait.  You will be on your own to find what the Nine have planned for you." Shaleigh's father smiled and winked at her.

Shaleigh rolled her eyes and muttered, "Yes father ... I've heard this before."  She poked her training sword around in the dirt by her feet, chasing a crawling beetle.  After a few moments of silence, she glanced back over.  Her father was staring off at the setting sun, lost in thought, his humor gone.

Finally he spoke softly, "You know, I really wish you had known your mother.  You remind me of Ilyanna.  Before the fever took her, she made me promise to take her home ... to Skyrim."  Shaleigh could see her father fight away grief as he continued, "I will find us a place while I am there. After I'm done with what Tullius wants, we're going to go home Shal … to Skyrim.  I'll be done with the Legion soon.  I promise."

Shaleigh woke with a start.  The Temple of the Divines was dimly lit and despite the heavy door and shuttered windows, the relentless cold of the evening found a way to creep in.  She had lost track of time and fallen asleep again as she sat, lost in memories.

Her eyes still stung but otherwise seemed to have run dry from tears.  She wiped them with her hand anyway and composed herself.  Inclining her head in the direction of the eight altars arranged neatly in the alcove for worship, she paid her respects to the Nine and prayed to her father.

"Father" she said softly.  "I am sorry ... I could not find you.  The Legion told me you perished and were lost, but I did not believe them.  I came to Skyrim for you, searched and hunted and prayed that you'd return, but to no avail.  I am tired ... please forgive me."  Shaleigh wept as she realized her hope of finding her father was gone. "Father, I am home now.  Even though you are not with me, you brought me here as you had promised.  I hope you have found peace.  I am strong because of you and am ready to see what destiny awaits me in Skyrim.  Soon, I will see you again … in Sovngarde."
