Somewhere in Skyrim...

 

Spoiler

Elder: Orianna, I must say this is quite the surprise.

 

83yquwsv o

 

Orianna: Elder, I-

 

Jcm5fkht o

 

Elder: I know, you want something.

 

Jkq42mbx o

 

Orianna: You're not wrong, I need someone ended.

 

Wro82lgr o

 

Orianna: Ever heard of the term "An eye for an eye?" Someone killed my sister, I want the same.

 

Yxapskvl o

 

Elder: Your sister died months ago, I thought you'd call that in earlier. In fact you should have.

 

Nhxlczp1 o

 

Elder: But anyway, who is it?

 

V1rqmcyr o

 

Orianna: Solomia Lannisdayne. That feisty little bitch.

 

Diit69q4 o

 

Elder: She's holding up at your home right? I have someone there who can deal with her. But maybe I shouldn't. I've overlooked your crimes for too long.

 

8ojqowb7 o

 

Orianna: Yeah, but I've been making sure vampires pay their due to you, you owe me.

 

Qpfunksu o

 

Elder: Fine then Orianna, no need to be a bitch about it, I'll get it done, but don't blame me if her sister turns up at your door!

 

Smuihie1 o

 

Orianna: That's all I wanted, thank you in advance.

 

1mgn6rv6 o

 

Elder: Fuck you.

 

2kghlk4t o

 

 

Meanwhile at Draconham castle...

 

Spoiler

Solomia: I for one am glad you're back, I've missed you.

 

1knngkmm o

 

Shea: Me too, I suppose I've gotten used to princess like pampering.

 

Zqnchdxr o

 

Shea: But I think I'll still prefer the road over anything else.

 

Mzubru0v o

 

Solomia: Well it'd be strange if you didn't. You was always like it, even when we were kids.

 

Tgezhbm9 o

 

Solomia: I still remember that time when you ran away and didn't come back for days. What was the reason why again?

 

Ezzsnfti o

 

Shea: Because I was on my period and I didn't have any towels or spare clothes. Quite an oversight.

 

Ljxh4wdt o

 

Solomia: I remember hugging you as soon as you got back. 

 

Cojx3cos o

 

Shea: I also remember you criticising me straight away. 

 

Rh9f02tj o

 

Solomia: Well I like perfection, what can I say?

 

Q8egx58x o

 

Shea: That was also our first time together in bed wasn't it?

 

Ixt3cbll o

 

Solomia: It sure was, we also learnt period sex wasn't a good idea.

 

Kxdzbjtd o

 

Shea: Glad we don't have to worry about that now at least.

 

Tntvt404 o

 

Solomia: Yeah, good job as well, I couldn't deal with them for thousands of years.

 

Uyz1ycu0 o

 

Shea: We were so innocent then, crazy how this world changes you..

 

Fdavx5nn o

 

Shea: Anyway, I'm heading outside for a minute, coming with?

 

Zf18gibu o

 

Solomia: Sure, maybe I can remind you of our first kiss.

 

N4iwno2w o

 

Shea: You still remember that?

 

Wrvplcet o

 

 

Spoiler

Solomia: Our first kiss was here. Do you remember?

 

Yamqjo0w o

 

Shea: Yeah, why were we here, I can't remember?

 

Zbb9b28h o

 

Solomia: We were fourteen, we were here to celebrate the birth of the Draconham twins. Ilda and Orianna.

 

6uxtcfab o

 

Shea: Oh right, yeah. I forget they were younger than us, still as poor sighted as the generations before, except Orianna, she had one good eye didn't she?

 

Msmvfbq3 o

 

Solomia: This was the night I told you the first thing that made you cry.

 

4k4yerwm o

 

Shea: Don't say it again, I'll just cry a puddle again.

 

Bgy71ldj o

 

Solomia: "When I die I want to be the brightest star in the sky."

 

O8q4o3dx o

 

Shea: Damn, still beautiful. I couldn't believe you were such a poet when you said that.

 

Qq4pkkcu o

 

Solomia: Well you liked to fight, I studied literature, it was destined to be.

 

1yqutjxa o

 

Shea: I was such an idiot then, I didn't do half the things I should have.

 

Idoncika o

 

Solomia: We were barely teenagers, how were we to know in a couple of years we'd end up as vampires?

 

Yzlfik8r o

 

Shea: Thanks, but I'll still hurt myself for it.

 

Sxwpfq0x o

 

Solomia: Well just keep living on, things will get better than this.

 

Brkgh5yv o

 

Shea: You're mistaking me for complaining, with you here, I think it's going to be the best. And I know I haven't been the best to you recently, but I want to change that from now moving forward.

 

Cgkfmsav o

 

Solomia: Then start by holding me Shea, Because I've missed you.

 

Lgvbpeet o

 

Shea: Of course I will.

 

09ymbion o

 

 

The next day...

 

Spoiler

Solomia: Our first kiss was here. Do you remember?

Two days later...

 

Spoiler

Shea: I'm sorry I couldn't bury you at home, but I didn't think you'd like a pile of rubble.

 

Km7sgrcw o

 

Shea: And even if they win, we've had the last laugh.

 

Yacdqo6g o

 

Shea: But most of all I'm sorry for what we didn't do. I remember when we used to promise what we'd do with each other. And we never did any of them.

 

Ihzodpvq o

 

Shea: I remember when I had this made for you, you never used it, but I think you should still have it, you seem to have taken it everywhere. 

 

1yhd3x9q o

 

Shea: I'm sorry, I can't stay not in this place alone. 

 

1kpqtttk o

 

Shea: I...I hope somewhere you can find a way to forgive me, for every time I wronged you and for everything I said I'd do but didn't. I'm sorry for cheating and lying, I...I wish we had more time, even a few more minutes, but I suppose you already know that now. And I'm sorry, I truly am. And I'm sorry for what I'm going to do.

 

Rtdjn8ko o

 

Shea: I'm sorry, for everything.

 

Jaej6hpg o

 

Shea: I don't know what to do now, I've failed you, mother and father.

 

Bhmssj0a o

 

Shea: Sis, I hope you understand...

 

Hqch1vrb o

 

Shea: But I have to leave now, and I don't know if I'm ever going to come back.

 

Hee7i1ep o

 

Shea: Goodbye sis, I'll miss you, even your criticisms and insults, I'll miss them all.

 

Wrqbtbee o

 

A few minutes later...

 

Shea: Why? Wait, what's that?

 

40lqteg1 o

 

Shea: A letter...

 

5osqf6km o

 

Cvmryiic o

 

Shea: Why? Why would he? 

 

L35uzdra o

 

Shea: But I need to leave, I can feel the end of the road approaching and I have a few things I need to finish before I fall off the end.

 

Ciw5jb0u o

 

Spoiler

Orianna: If this isn't done, I swear I'll tear him apart.

 

Tkc2ezn1 o

 

Orianna: So?

 

Pqbiicve o

 

Elder: It's done Orianna. Solomia is dead.Sir Gabriel has left and expects a full pardon for the task and I expect you'll never see me again, or I'll make you answer for your crimes. Do you accept that or not, and you don't have a choice right now?

 

Wlt8u678 o

 

Orianna: You won't see me willingly again Elder, and tell Gabriel he can expect a full pardon once he arrives back to me. He will even be rewarded the highest honour of Zealot. Goodbye, stay well and don't ever see me again. And I won't come and see you.

 

Axnoqgpb o

 

 

That evening...

 

Spoiler

Shea: Damn...she was right...

 

Co5kxit5 o

 

Shea: She's the brightest star, right next to Masser.

 

Tq6eboni o

 

Shea: C'mon girl, it's gonna be a long road to Winterhold.

 

Kpzomgjz o

 

End of Act 2

 

This was a tough one to write, but I hope you found a good read from this. So, feel free to leave feedback and thank you for reading! 

 

Spoiler

I hope the issue with loading is better, I've lowered the quality preset of jpegs to 97 and I hope that makes a big enough difference, it certainly did on file size on my end

It seems to me you doubled the last spoiler of "Meanwhile in Draconham castle" part with the first one of "The next day". As I suppose it was containing something related to Solomia's death, it feels a bit confusing to the reader. That caveheat put aside, you served us a more structured and dramatic chapter than the usual, with a more visible red thread. Nice chapter ! ?

 

PS : and the loading times are indeed better. :classic_wink:

Yep sorry about that, but it will become clearer later...

I'm glad you preferred the structure, I'm also glad the loading times were better.
