It was closing time for those who did not have a room, so UrShak stepped out the darkening inn. The streets were particularly empty in this town and the few that were out included a few town guards and members of ONE (Ordo Negrum Equites). UrShak made his way down the street. UrShak dusted off his black robe, in return rubbing his hands together to remove the dirt from them. It was a bit cold out so he put his hood up and shoved his hands in his pockets.

He was on his way to hang out to … not do much really. Ever since he got back from England, he wasn’t the same anymore. Out of the corner of his eye he saw a shade of something moving in an alley. “What was that?” He leaned and squinted in the direction of the alley so he could see better, but it was dark so he gave up. He continued on and tried to put it out of his mind.

The county wasn't exactly the best. There was a lot of crime and revolts, but a lot of the other counties where he had been before did also. For him it wasn't that unusual, though in the past he would have been surely participating. As UrShak walked on he kept seeing things popping in and out of the shadows. After a bit he started to get a bit nervous. He took his hands out of his pockets and made fists so he would be ready for anything. Then it came out of nowhere, out of the shadow …

“Oh... just a stray cat,” he murmered. UrShak was in no hurry to get anywhere. Looking back up to the street before him, his eyes shifted around, seemingly trying to find something of assistance. Not finding anything to give to it, his eyes drifted back down to the black cat. It was fairly obvious to him that the cat wanted some food, so he dug deep into his pockets, but he couldn’t find anything but a slightly broken shell.

As the cat started to understand that UrShak had no food, it walked away from him. As it left, it took only a few moments before it disappeared again in the dark of the alley just as it had appeared. Soon it was only UrShak standing there, alone. Biting his lip, he looked at the shell in his hand, trying to remember that night... but more specific the few hours he had spent together with Inanna in the inn before he had to leave back to Ireland…

The inn had been quiet when they arrived late that night, the only light coming from the glow of a dying fire in the hearth of the common room. Behind a tidy bar the innkeeper dozed, his feet up on the table in front of him as he leaned back in his chair, mouth open and snoring loudly. Leading UrShak by the hand she pulled him towards the stairs at the back that led to her room, vivid memories of another set of stairs in another inn long ago in Cornwall clouded her vision and now it was Inanna that swooned momentarily, clutching the rail briefly to steady herself. Her other hand went to her eyes briefly, rubbing across them and pushing her dark curls out of her face. She only needed to hold herself together a while longer, then they would be in the privacy of her chamber, and well...there was no need to hide things from him, and no point in trying. He knew her far too well.

In some ways, his surprise arrival at the wedding was the best thing that could have happened to her. In some ways the worst. She had so little willpower left now anyhow, so little motivation. Her life had become a charade over the past few months, but a fragile one. Daily she continued to smile and chat, plot and scheme, recruit and negotiate, all that was expected of her as leader of the Wolves, but her heart had left the role long ago. She could continue to fool herself, perhaps, but she knew she wouldn't be able to fool him and if she didn't tread carefully now, this whole illusion would be shattered beyond repair. Perhaps that would be more honest, but she wasn't sure she could take it at this point. Tonight though, as she had done back in Cornwall, she would live only for the moment. Decisions like that were for daylight, not the darkened shadows of a soft fire at midnight.

One hand on the railing to keep her balance, the other sought his in the dark as she continued to make her way to her room, if only for a few precious hours.
