Marius had awoken with a nightmare, his heart pounding furiously and drenched with sweat. It wasn't from his Joining. This nightmare was about Miri and templars. About losing her to them. About being unable to save her. He sat up in bed, cradling his head in his hands and slowed his breathing as much as he could. He had to get out of his room. He had to do something.
He changed out of his sweat-drenched clothes and tossed on a fresh tunic and trousers. He slipped on his boots and he left his room, not sure where he was going to go but knowing that he had to go somewhere.
He walked the compound with his hands shoved in his pockets. It was too late to go see Miriam. She would welcome him, but he didn't want to worry her. Soon, he found himself in the training yard. It was too late for that and he wasn't wearing his armor, but it was a nice enough night. Marius sat heavily on a bench and leaned his head up against the cold stone wall behind him. He just needed to clear his head.
After that didn't work he hopped back to his feet and started stalking around the compound again. It was going to be a long night.
Tanidahl was still getting used to the compounds layout. She had decided it would be best to take one of her first shifts on the night watch so she could meander around without getting in anyone’s way, and it would help her figure out the grounds both in daylight and in the dark.
She liked the night too. The silence -- or as silent as a compound inside a city could get -- was welcome after spending time in the markets and a few of the taverns over the last week. People chattered on too much for her liking, and the markets alone were enough to give her a headache.
She was still waiting on her issued armor. They’d have to make something special for her size, which made her feel kind of bad. Cauthrien was putting a lot of trust in her. Trust that she would stick around. Trust that she’d be able to do a good job. She had no intention of breaking that trust.
That’s why when she noticed movement near the practice yard she came to full attention. While whoever it was slipped around a corner, she was determined to find out who exactly thought they could wander into the compound without notice.
She trotted until she reached where she had saw the figure, and looked around the corner. The man was moving slowly, and she wasn’t sure if he was stalking the grounds trying not to be seen, or if he was just moving at a casual pace.
Better to err on the side of caution, she thought as she stepped out and began moving towards him at a clipped walk. She wasn’t silent, but she also wasn’t running at him at a full charge. She had her hammer at the ready in case he decided to turn and fight, and finally called out. “Halt!”
