    Re: The Knight's Tale (Huldah)

    The woman walked without comment, following Thomas through the passageways and multiple doors, before they finally started to climb. When they finally reached outside, the sun made her recoil a bit, using her arm to shade her eyes as she glanced around. They were nowhere near where she had originally entered the tunnels. Not too far from home, really. Surprised, she stepped out a little further and turned around, inspecting the passage they had come out of.

    "Would it be a bother if I wished to check the forge, Thomas? We're not that far from it in truth, and... I just have to see." She asked, hesitation colouring her tone. Even if her father was there... what then? How does one even talk about what happened the night before?

      Thomas too had to shade his eyes as they stepped from the passage. After a moment or two he made an effort at stretching his arms and legs while Huldah looked about at their surroundings. The road seemed a rather lonely place at the moment as there was not another person to be seen in either direction.

      At Huldah's query Thomas looked as though he were about to shake his head in the negative. He hesitated before sighing and answering. "Sir Daniel didn't say anything about not visiting the forge but it could be dangerous. We're still not sure who might be working with the cult so we'll be cautious about it. If I say to run you return here and hide in the tunnels. Probably over cautious but you never know when dealing with the supernatural, eh."

      The pair began the short walk toward the forge, after a quarter mile they could clearly see that it appeared empty. Still Thomas did not rush into entering as he looked about at their surroundings before nodding and saying. "It guess it looks safe enough to me, let's go take a closer look."

        The woman nodded, on edge as they began to walk. It wasn't far at all, and all too soon, she could see the forge ahead on the road, the small abode sitting to the side of it. Both seemed empty from where they were. She didn't slow, continuing towards it as Thomas declared it safe enough. It didn't look like the place had been touched since she left it the night before, but she had to look anyways, heading for the forge first and looking inside.

          The forge as she expected was untouched and cold an odd sight for the young blacksmith. It was the first time she had not seen a fire within since she had been very young if she had ever seen the fire completely dead. The room was empty of anything to indicate her father or anyone else had been there though so she made her way slowly inside to the small home she shared with her father.

          Thomas followed a short distance behind seeming perhaps a bit more nervous than she. Though his worries seemed unfounded as entered the home to find it equally untouched from the previous evening. Though the stillness of the room was a bit unnerving Huldah relaxed a bit as did her companion, though his hand never seemed to stray far from the sword at his hip. Finally after looking the room over he said. "I guess there was no reason to be worried after all, though we should head back before too long. Perhaps it would be wise to grab anything you might need while we're here?"

            The woman seemed the opposite, growing more tense as Thomas relaxed. "Yeah. Yeah, i guess so." She responded. There wasn't that much to take, really. Some spare clothes, the hidden pouch of coins they kept their small savings in. Stepping back into the forge, she took a knife and attached it to her belt, then glanced around.

            Without the heat and light from the forge filling the place, it seemed so... cold, lacking. The woman reached down and took the hammer off the bench, feeling the weight. Just yesterday she had been working away with it, and the world had seemed, if not perfect, then right, at least. Sighing, she kept the hammer as well, turning to Thomas and motioning towards the rack of finished and near finished blades and tools. "If there's anything you think we'd need, feel free. I think I have all I need."
