Allison came out of her room. She definitely didn't care if she looked like a tramp. She didn't look too bad, but one could definitely tell that she had just gotten out of bed. Her hair was a little messy and her eyes still had some sleep in them. It was better then Evin had expected though. It was good that she looked presentable too, because Evin was sure that the person that they were going to see would prefer to talk to someone who looked good, especially at this time of day. Evin hoped that she would understand.
"Where are we going then?" Allison asked.
Evin started to walk. "We are going to see a person I know. It is very early in the morning, I know, but she wont mind in this situation. Her name is Lorin and I met her a few years back when I was on mission in the around that clearing where the fight is taking place. That isn't the reason why we are going to meet her though. She has the ability to create illusions and she also knows about some of the area really well. I think that she could be really good for our fight. She owes me a few favors anyways." He stopped for a second and smirked and then said to himself, "Who said breaking rules never helped? Anyways, she will be a valuable weapon in our arsenal. Well here we are!"
The distance from the inn to her house wasn't that far and they were already there. The guards that they did see were too distracted by other things to see them. It was a good thing too, because during the entire time, Evin had kept a dagger in his hand in case anything happened. Of course nothing did happen.
He opened the door to the house. He knew that she wouldn't mind if he just walked in, even at this time of day. What he saw when he walked in was definitely not what he expected. He was expecting to see the typical boring white paint and dull white love seat that welcomed anyone coming in, but it wasn't white. It was covered in blood and very fresh blood at that. He gripped his dagger a little bit tighter as he walked in a little more.
"Wait outside. If you can get onto the roof, see if you can see anyone who might have done the attack." He whispered so quietly, that only a person within a meter of him would be able to hear. Now understanding was another thing.
Evin started to walk closer to the couch. Behind the couch was a man. He couldn't see who it was under the cloak, but he was stabbing Lorin who was already clearly dead. It didn't make any sense, but he knew that he had just found the murderer that the King wanted. Evin jumped over the couch and lunged at the man. The man was prepared though and threw a smoke bomb in Evin's face. Evin didn't flinch though, he was to concentrated on finding out where the man was. He tried to use some of his other senses to figure out what he had done since he threw the bomb, but he gave nothing away. It wasn't natural, it was almost like the man was an assassin himself. When Evin had gotten out of the smoke, the man was already at the door and taking off. How didn't Evin even hear the man run away?
Evin ran after the man. Hopefully Allison had seen the man take off.
