A noble heart chap 3“Not a word?” Dis questioned after Thorin recalled events when he returned that evening. Thorin shook his head as he watched the swirling smoke rise from his pipe. His sister had nearly toppled him over when he returned begging for news on the girl and the fact that he had none seemed to do nothing to kill her curiosity. Thorin would not admit it aloud but he felt the same.A noble heart chap 3 by Adrainna
“One would think after what she must have been through she would be abundant with tales to tell.” She said sitting on her stool by the fire before she lost herself in thought. Thorin watched her brow crease as she gnawed at her lower lip slightly. It was how their mother was whenever something weighed on her mind and Dis looked so much like her now it tugged at his heart. They were half a world away from where the woman who gave them life lay but so much of her heart was scattered across this world.
It pained Thorin to think on it. Of the many that were like his mother, alone in their s
A noble heart chap 2The cold day broke setting the mountain abuzz with life as everyone went about their day’s work. Thorin met with various dwarves to begrudgingly deal with trading contracts, inventory lists and coffer counts. The weight of a crown could seem light to all but who wore it. It didn’t take long for midday to come around, giving him a much needed break from it all. It was in this time away from his duties he chose to keep to his sister’s words and visit the child.A noble heart chap 2 by Adrainna
As he walked Thorin mulled over how to approach the situation at hand. Hoping all it took was his presence to have the matter of her lost state figured out since he wasn’t sure how to handle children. Finding the door he sought Thorin knocked and found it was quickly answered by Óin who ushered him in without a word, knowing why he had come, and then swiftly led him to the child’s room.
There he saw a handsome older woman sitting on the bed humming a soft tune. In one hand she held a comb,
A noble heart chap 1The wind blew rather harshly as it ushered in a chill from the north. The warmth of summer was quickly fading and winter was fast approaching as small party of dwarves moved towards home after trading with nearby humans. Somehow in the drowning howling of it all he had heard the cry and it called to him and without a word he rushed to the source of the sound. A difficult task since the wind cast the sound all around but as if pulled by an invisible force he found the origin.A noble heart chap 1 by Adrainna
The cry came from a small child, curled up in a stone crack they’d managed to crawl into. Immediately his head whipped around looking for their parents or at least the remains of them yet nothing but the rocky plains met his gaze. Attention then returned back to the child still sobbing though when they registered his appearance tried to press farther into the unyielding stone.
At their fear he dropped his pack and squatted offering a hand waiting patiently for them to make the first move. As he waited h
Too Late‘Please no!’ Reni chanted as she crashed into the space only to be greeted by carnage. As if broadsided by a bag of bricks all she crumpled under the weight, knees hitting the red stained floor as she stared in disbelief of what she saw. Time stopped and she was unsure when she started to cry but the warmth dripped down her cheeks and mingled with the dark pool. Eventually people buzzed around, masked faces blank and uncaring trying to coax her out of her state, to no avail.Too Late by Adrainna
The scenery eventually changed yet nothing really registered. Reni was a shell of a woman being poked and prodded, listening to distant voices drowning them out with the imaginings of her mind. Sickly it played out the events of the previous scene in gruesome detail. Crunching of bones, smell of blood and the pleadings of those who left the stains on the floor but it was the sound of her name being cried out over and over again that shot her into awareness with a cry of her own.
