Somewhere in Skyrim...

 

Shea: Oh hell! Where am I?

 

Cgqzz0dw o

 

Shea: Somewhere...sheltered at least.

 

Gttaov8l o

 

Shea: Hello?

 

Yyhxowys o

 

Shea: Dammit why do shady places always lead you further ahead?

 

Vnvflm50 o

 

Shea: Hello...you? Sorry I have no idea who you are.

 

6cfqcslu o

 

Kala: Well I'm Kala.

 

Vzsunwes o

 

Kala: Well now that we have a little bit of light, how about you tell me about yourself?

 

Jshllwvd o

 

Shea: Well I'm a vampire. I don't really know what else you need to know.

 

Cm4tmcoc o

 

Kala: A name would be nice. I already knew you were different. Hell I've seen vampires die from that fall.

 

Shea: You want a name. Fine. Shea. Shea of nowhere and nothing.

 

Kala: {Laughing} How naive. You fall once and now you tell everyone you've lost everything. Although admittedly, I think you only held onto life by a thread.

 

1slb3qi6 o

 

Shea: Wait, what?

 

Gii0hhvo o

 

Kala: Your eyes give away a lot you know? In fact when I found you they were fiery red. Now only one holds that ire. In truth, I think you only held on because of hatred.

 

Kmumfsdq o

 

Kala: Well even if you did survive that through hate or just being a vampire, I'd be willing to say that you shouldn't nearly die anytime soon. If you did I think you'd actually die.

 

Mvqhssft o

 

Shea: I've had worse than this.

 

Khkeo4z5 o

 

Kala: You may have, but you can't keep on doing this to yourself. You'll die if you do.

 

Jmt8zr0t o

 

Shea: Trust me I'll be fine! Now if you'll stop lecturing someone who's a couple of millennia older than you, that would be appreciated!

 

Aivsm3fb o

 

Kala: Oh I'm a bit older than you, Shea. I'm a vampire too. I wouldn't have brought you here if I wasn't. I wouldn't have even helped you.

 

P7ofeccr o

 

Kala: So I'd take a minute to listen if I were you.

 

Jmzvo84r o

 

Shea: Fine then. It's not like I have anything better to do.

 

4zrjbcuc o

 

Kala: You have no idea where you are yet you're so intent on leaving. Why?

 

Lnacwtuf o

 

Shea: I thought you were going to tell me something.

 

Ojltuqry o

 

Kala: Well I took the opportunity I made. So why do you want to leave so quickly?

 

27b7neg7 o

 

Shea: Isn't it obvious? I've come to a place I don't know with a person who refuses to show their face to me. Considering you're even older than me, I thought you'd have realised.

 

Kaepejtw o

 

Kala: Oh you don't want to know the story behind this mask.

 

Qwbjuonc o

 

Kala: Just know that underneath it...it isn't pleasant.

 

Ft0urzv4 o

 

 

A day later...

Shea: Gods! She was right about my eyes! Fuck!

 

Vqaiijjs o

 

Shea: And my hair?! Grey! I suppose I'll have to live with it. I don't have much of a choice now.

 

An hour later...

 

Shea: So what do you think she's doing out there?

 

C4rksxqq o

 

Dog: Bark!

 

Pmwdz8pc o

 

Shea: I really don't know why I expected you to speak. Am I going mad?

 

Jmqye6ew o

 

Kala: Shea! I'm home!

 

Va9mx4fa o

 

Shea: About time.

 

9pdzdrwd o

 

Kala: Well I see you found my old things.

 

Shea: Wait these were yours?

 

Kala: Don't worry about I wasn't likely to wear it anyway, as you can tell I'm not a warrior anymore.

 

Shea: Thanks, I guess.

 

Mjehres9 o

 

Shea: But why don't you need it?

 

Kala: I'm a sage of sorts who got tired of fighting. You are clearly still full of fire, so it'd fit you better.

 

Ykb0qnkx o

 

Kala: But perhaps it's time for me to talk to you about the mask.

 

Shea: Oh really? I never thought you'd tell me about it.

 

Kala: I can be reasonable at times, Shea.

 

4hhhygzd o

 

Shea: So are we going to sit by the fire or do you wanna just talk here?

 

Kala: By the fire of course. A story wouldn't be complete without it.

 

J5v8gone o

 

Kala: So do you want the mask off first or the story first?

 

Shea: You know I don't really mind.

 

Kala: Fine, the mask then.

 

3ya9wbfn o

 

Kala: It looks bad doesn't it?

 

Yba6h6yk o

 

Shea: It's not that bad. I've seen a lot worse.

 

Wvaaodn8 o

 

Kala: Really?

 

5s0appxy o

 

Shea: Yeah plenty. So what's the story?

 

E3on3eou o

 

Kala: Well for the longest time I'd earned the name 'The Vampire who couldn't.'

 

Shea: Any reason why?

 

Kala: Well I used to be a warrior like yourself, but then...

 

Shea: You didn't take an arrow to knee did you?

 

Veaeanp6 o

 

Kala: No. Nothing that easy unfortunately. I was cut across my face. I expected it'd clear overnight, but it didn't. Then a week passed and it didn't change. I'd lost my healing factor. So I became known as the vampire who couldn't. Then that was followed by ridicule from other vampires and eventually exile. Then I ended up here. Anyway, that's enough about me. What about you? What's your story?

 

Bwfyv9f8 o

 

Shea: It's a long an unpleasant one. I suppose what really matters happens once I'm out of my tomb. Some lesser vampires tried to make me their thrall. Obviously they failed. I ended up getting to Whiterun where I met a girl called Joanna; we ended up travelling for a while together. We travelled to Bruma and I got a little hungry. She never knew I was a vampire and I'd fed on one of the townspeople. A hunt ensued and I got away. I found a place to stay and ended up getting a letter from my sister. Someone I'd not seen since I'd climbed into my tomb. Somewhere down the line I ended up having to answer for my crimes and I was bound in service to a queen. She'd sent me off to a castle to investigate the murder of some vampires. There I was betrayed and thrown into a prison.

 

Rsdyuwyw o

 

Kala: What happened then?

 

Shea: I didn't think you'd be interested.

 

Kala: I'd like to know you a little better, is that so wrong?

 

Rzsrso4j o

 

Shea: No not really. But you'll understand why I am the way I am. Anyway, I escaped from that prison and vowed I'd have my revenge at some point. I suppose I did get my revenge. I returned home and killed the traitor's sister. Then I let her soldiers take it and find her dead. Orianna, the traitor. She wasn't going to sit by. She had another lord come after me. And I was foolish enough to go to him. Destro, he was holding up at Orianna's home. I was going to take it. I was arrogant and foolhardy. I rushed in and expected him to fall quickly. In truth, I fell. He imprisoned me and...I don't want to talk about that. I eventually escaped and got my revenge. I killed him, but I almost died myself. That's when I awoke in the place. My sister was ruling it and I met a man named Gabriel. That name I've grown to despise. Everything went rather well until he betrayed me as well. He killed my sister, under an order from Orianna. I buried my sister. My twin. Someone I was bound to even from birth and...

 

Rrhqfgp4 o

 

Kala: You don't needn't say anymore if you don't want to.

 

Shea: No I will.

 

Isuve5en o

 

Shea: After I buried her. I remember seeing a new star in the sky. Red like our hair was. I left and set out on finding Gabriel and killing him in the most brutal way I could imagine. I'd found his tracks and almost found him. There was a blizzard though and I didn't really want to be in the cold, if any travellers came along they also wouldn't suspect I was a vampire. Then I came across Orianna. That bitch. We fought, I had the upper hand. I lost it. She stabbed me and I fell backwards. Then I wake up here. I will have my final vengeance. On the one who caused everything, the one who ruined my life and killed my closest friend and who took everything from me. That's why I want to leave this place.

 

Qf6qm8hp o

 

Kala: I'm so sorry, that's...awful.

 

Km7kbta2 o

 

Shea: But that's life. Well if you want to call it that.

 

Tz076uw1 o

 

Kala: And I'm sorry for acting as if my tragedy was the worst thing to ever happen to someone.

 

Wcxtdr1s o

 

Shea: You didn't know and what could you have expected?

 

Kala: I could've been a bit more empathetic.

 

Shea: Perhaps but-

 

Pcq3rjwg o

 

????: I KNOW YOU'RE IN THERE KALA!

 

Sfstarh2 o

 

Shea: Who in Daedra's name is that?

 

H5fhyldu o

 

Kala: Just leave it they'll leave soon enough.

 

Shea: No, something tells me they won't just go.

 

Ls7tn8jg o

 

Shea: I'm gonna solve the problem whether you like it or not. I'm not gonna back down.

 

Fpn5hmdg o

 

Kala: Well if you must, just be careful you aren't in peak condition.

 

Shea: I'll be fine, don't worry.

 

Q1xg3kmm o

 

A few moments later...

 

Vampire: Wait you're not Kala.

 

Wd87bayv o

 

Shea: Yeah no shit ice for brains.

 

Vampire: How dare you talk to a member of the Volkihar clan like that!

 

Shea: Oh come on, you have the lesser vampire eyes. So shut up and go!

 

3zky9fc7 o

 

Shea: Before I cut you down!

 

Pzxkjotv o

 

Vampire: You think you can beat me mortal? How funny.

 

Xlm6iiwe o

 

Shea: Mortal? I guess your senses really aren't in tune. You're about to make the biggest mistake of your miserable life!

 

Vpzqsz6d o

 

Shea: Come on then! If you're so great, then show me.

 

Uldi8vxy o

30fnv6bd o

 

A moment later...

 

Vampire: No please... I...

 

Pkbypccm o

 

Shea: Not in peak condition? What on Nirn was Kala talking about?

 

T1zhpkwb o

 

Later...

 

Shea: C'mon why are you scared of them?

 

4emzomnf o

 

Kala: Because they're part of the Volkihar clan. They're higher vampires.

 

Shea: Well if that's what higher vampire means now, I'm rather disappointed.

 

Wsmfxi5v o

 

Kala: Wait you killed them?

 

Qu8ir8z5 o

 

Kala: Dammit we're on an island! They'll come for us both! You're going to have to see Lord Harkon and fix this!

 

Jftikgsb o

 

Shea: Oh come on I can face up to him. If he's as bad as that vampire was I'm sure it'll be easy.

 

Tomf60p8 o

 

Kala: You do realise he is the only one who lets people off the island? I only got off because I sneak away and then I had to come back with you as well.

 

Shea: Well looks like I'm off to see the lord then, aren't I?

 

Wohlj2mo o
