"I'm not a princess though Princesses wish they were like me. But no matter"

She opened the door and was greeting with a similar yet very different scene from her last Inn. While the establishment itself was of similar low quality the patrons were all much more dour and silent (much to her delight). Barely anyone even looked their way as they made their way to the bar, tension thick enough to cut.

There wasn't much being said and what was was subdued and hushed as if trying not to wake someone. But they all picked up what was said: Connin had been burnt down.

Maron maintained her flat expression but the same could not be said for Amelia, whom upon hearing the news moved to one of the tables and asked what had happened.

"Didn't you hear? Connin burned down and not a single soul made it out"

The girl started visibly shaking but kept herself together as Maron started talking to the tender, asking for a room and a meal for three.

Since the captain has gone off to speak with the higher-ranking officers, Amanda tries to look for her squad members. While wandering through the fort, she finds some of her acquaintances. Amanda simply shakes her head, since she remembers about the "milk accident" back in Connin.

Aster approaches Amanda: "There you are. The captain has asked all of us to at least improve our training in magic. Beats waiting."
"Oh, sure." Aster gently grabs Amanda's hand, as they walk towards the fort's training master. Amanda, however, blushes at this.
"Now that you are all here, let's start." the training master from Bazentown started slamming his staff on the ground to show his authority. "Let us start with what you know already. Miss Amanda, show me your power."

Amanda steps forward and takes a long breath, then casts Entangle spell, which binds the training master's legs with grass, roots and flowers.

"Good. Now try this..." the training continued, as Amanda, Logan, Aster and Vladik practiced their spell casting craft. Amanda practiced Elemental, Logan casted Soul, Aster used Healing and Vladik Shadow Magic.

After an hour of training magic, Amanda is exhausted, but feels her spellcasting abilities have been improved.

"Good. With more training you will be able to cast better spells. Now, let me teach you the power of enchanting. Unsheathe your weapon." Amanda took the sword out of her scabbard. "Place your hands on the sword and concentrate on the spell you wish to cast, then grasp the weapon."

Amanda thinks of frost breath spell and strengthens the grasp of her sword. The sword becomes blue colored, but just as Amanda becomes happy at her success, the magic fails.

"Remember, you need to focus. Your happiness caused this failure. Try again."

Amanda repeats the process and as the sword turns blue, Amanda tries to hold her happiness. In a few seconds, the sword becomes blue-colored.

"That was good. But remember not to over-do enchanting, since magic depends on your limited life force. The magic weaved onto any weapon or armor won't stay forever, though. Now, back to training!" Amanda nods and goes back to her squad.

The next morning brought surprises. As Zayl was eating his breakfast consisting of buvkwheat porridge with bacon, a half a loaf of bread and a jug of wine, and waiting for his newfound companion, the inn patrons seemed to buzz with one conversation topic: The town of Connin was razed to the ground by supposedly a detachment of Mebruan military.

Somehow Zayl sensed that this event will be related to his first assignment as mercenary of the Crown of Karston.

After the training was over, everyone went to bed. The next morning, the captain woke everyone up and went off to report something. The rest went to get breakfast. Amanda sat by the table, quite thrilled about the food she was going to eat: bacon, beans, tea, sausages, cheese, pickles and so much more.

Logan noticed this and warned Amanda, but breathed heavily: "You can't... can't... you can't... Miss Amanda..."
"Will you finish the sentence already?" Aster was annoyed and pat Logan on the back.
"...can't... eat this breakfast. It is re-seer-ved for the cap'n."
"Oh yeah, the captain clearly stated the place at the top of the table was his."
"Shoot. Now I got to eat bread made of rocks." Amanda started crunching the bread, which was barely digestible.

"So it is true", Gulston said as he approached Zayl, "I think we might have entered this war a bit overconfident.  Let's check inside the keep and see if we can find out more about the incident at Connin."

- Doubt it- Zayl said as he finished his drink. He stood up from his barstool and left the inn with Gulston.
- The town was poorly defended after the troops moved to this keep. - He continued his thoughts on the way to the castle keep. - It would be easy for a well organised squad of guerillas to sneak in and cause a massive amount of trouble. Such tactics have been used for centuries.

Amanda came back to her squad, all who looked worried. Without further ado, they went back to training until new orders were issued.

"I still can't believe an entire city was destroyed." Aster started shaking, feeling they could be even targeted.
"They may as well have been taken by surprise and the other citizens were slayed as well. I am more concerned how could they have gone to the city unnoticed. There would've been someone that saw them, yes?" Aster stated.
"Whatever it was, they must not go unpunished." Amanda frowned.

Titus' morning prayers were hasty, filled with worry and anticipation.

After getting to know that the only "survivor" of the fire died after  breaking out the news, he remained shocked.

The rest of that day flew by his usual routine of rites, hoping to calm some of the populace.

The morning after he went to Svartalf's quarters to discuss his contribution to his squad, and the times in which he would enlighten the soldiers.

The evening passed uneventfully. The patrons of the inn were too occupied with talk about Connin burning down and even though Maron and Missy stood out like a sore thumb (each for her own reasons) no one paid them much attention. Eventually, Maron managed to get them a room and meals which were delivered to said rooms. After they've all eaten they went to sleep. In the middle of the night Missy woke up. She looked around, made sure everyone's asleep and quietly sneaked out through the window. The streets were mostly empty, but if someone happened to walk through a small grove behind the inn, he might have spotted a little girl talking to someone behind the trees. Only there didn't seem to be anyone or anything, just shadows. This is what she was saying:

"Today was great! I got to a new place. I met some people. I even found two new friends! You should meet them too! Only not now, because they're sleeping. Oh, and I've finally eaten tasty food! It was great! And this time I wasn't hungry even an hour after I finished eating! Maron is really great. She says she's not a Princess, but she dresses really beautifully and she has money and she has a maid and she talks fancy and she insisted she sleeps in a room of her own... even how she said it was royal-like, there we were eating our food and talking, I told her how was my day and what kind of things I like and I told her what I know about Princesses and she really listened, then suddenly she said to Amelia to make sure She sleeps alone. I think she realized that I know about Princesses and I understand she needs to live in big places and she doesn't have to be nice and sleep with me just for my sake. She must have really appreciated me back then. And Amelia said Of course, Miss and went to take care of something. Amelia is nice too. She didn't talk much. But she didn't try to hit me or shout at me. I like her. Well, I should get back, I'll talk to you soon. Bye bye! Goodnight!"

Missy sneaked back into her room, glanced at Amelia to make sure she was still asleep and went back to bed.

Lucy squeezed the bloody rags into the vial, carefully trying to avoid any spillage. Hopefully, she would have around two vials full over the next few days. She washed her hands in a bucket and her mind began to wander. It would be sometime before anyone had any information on exactly what happened at Connin. Of course, that probably meant an extended stay at Geham. The thought irritated her, so much time wasted. She put the vial in her satchel and shoved the rags back down the front of her trousers. She walked over to the window and looked at her reflection. She fastened her ring fingers to both sides of her mouth and pulled forming a deranged smile, before letting them snap back to her unamused expression.

"Maybe it is time I judged the character of our officers, wouldn't be any fun if they remained enigmatic background figures. Perhaps, I may even gain a bit more. That will put a smile on my face."

And behold it was so. She went down stairs to the main room. Nothing like the sight of a shady, gray skinned man eating breakfast to show you the quality of an inn. She sighed audibly.

"I am sure they are all like this", she rationalized mentally.

She walked up to the keep and approached a guard cycling out of his post.

"Excuse me," she said approaching him, "Can I ask something of you."
"What kind of thing."
"Well..."

"Exactly, but there hasn't even been a single clash between the armies earlier.  Mebruans are still in shock, they didn't have time to prepare for this war;  their king was assured that his daughter would marry king Paret.  The way I see it, it would either be that Mebruans tricked Karston into declaring this war, or that a third party, still unknown to us, joined the conflict."


Right in front of the keep, four men stood guard.  "Come back later, mercenaries, the keep is off limits to anyone until further notice", one of them said.

"Right", Gulston said, "What do we do now, Zayl."

- We suggest to follow the pup's advice - Zayl said. - No need to cause trouble before it's necessary... Besides. We do like a good bloodbath from time to time.- He said with a smirk.

Hetania woke up an hour before dawn with by Amelia coming in with a dress and a plate of breakfast. Her face was red, eyes watery and hanging her head. "Do you have the list?"
"Yes miss" She answered and handed the list she had taken from the armoury.

"Excellent. Any problems with Missy?"

"N-no, miss. Uhm, why are we having her here?"

"That I do not know yet but I am certain she will be of use to me down the line"

They finished their usual morning routine as the sun started to come up.

"Go see of Missy is awake. If she is, see if she is willing to follow to see the general. If not, leave a message where we are and that we won't be long"

"Yes miss"

Hetania was dressed in a long, purple dress with a large, circular, spiky collar going up behind her head with black circles. She was also carrying a purple masquerade mask in her left hand.

"Bloodbath..."

Gulston stroke his chin for a moment, then turned towards the guards.
"We're here for the investigation regarding Connin.  With silver and gold badges respectively, I believe we're qualified for such a task, and I'm most certain that your superiors would agree with me."

The guard that spoke before eyed the duo suspiciously.
"I'm not sure, but...  alright.  I don't feel like being assigned to it, anyway.  I'll go and tell the captain about you two.  Wait here till I come back."

With that the guard went inside the keep.  The three remaining guards spread in front of the massive entrance door that stood behind them.


"This is going good, so far."

Amelia opened the door and entered quietly.

"Missy? Missy, are you awake?"

Missy blinked once or twice, stretched and than sat bolt upright.

"Hi, Amelia! Good morning!"

"Yes... good morning. Miss Hetania is going to see the general and I will of course accompany her. Would you like to come too?"

"Ok!" Missy answered cheerfully, her smile never leaving her face. She jumped out of bed, stretched again and came closer to Amelia, "By the way, what's the general? Is it a dress?! Oh, I hope it's a dress!"

- So far, yes. - Zayl said. - Seems paranoia is at an all time high in this castle. At least after what happened to that measly port town. Still, they wouldn't give us these measly trinkets for nothing. - He said while touching the little badge insignia.

"Refused, c'mon who doesn't need one of my wondrous cure alls", Lucy muttered irritated, "I mean I am not daddy but..."

Did the guard really consider letting that shady gray man through?

"I wouldn't let you through if my life depended on it", Lucy said bitterly, walking up to Zayl.

The guard returned after about ten minutes and instructed Gulston and Zayl to follow him.

The inside of the keep looked like a royal palace, with marble floors, pillars with elaborate carvings and various colored curtains and paintings decorating the walls.
The guard led the duo to an office on the second floor.  Inside was the captain, nervously looking at a piece of paper in his hands.


"So, you're the ones?" he said with a hint of fear in his voice, "What could you two possibly do about Connin, that my men could not?"


"Sir captain", Gulston began in a confident manner, "I mean no disrespect, but your men look unfit to carry out these orders.  We're veterans, experienced men, and we'd have far more success than a member of the guard.  Remember that it was them who failed to protect Connin in the first place.  Besides, you're better off having them here, defending Geham, than outside the safety of the walls, left to the mercy of some roaming Mebruan squad."

The captain wasn't happy to be criticized, but realized the truth of Gulston's words before doing anything rash.  "You have a point.  I will have the guards train extra every day."
He opened the top drawer on his desk and took out two papers from there.  "Here you are", he said as he handed the paper to Gulston and Zayl, "Official documents stating that you're to travel to Connin and begin your investigation.  Take a carriage to get there.  I want to know who was behind this attack, how they got there.  I want to know if there were any casualties on their side, the damage they've done to the buildings.  Did they loot the ruins, or did they let everything burn.  All of this, you are to report, do I make myself clear?"

"Yes, captain", both of the mercenaries say at the same time.

"Very well.  Dismissed!"


"That settles that", Gulston said as they left the room, visibly pleased, "I'd like to get some supplies before we leave, though."
