Traude was awoken by Brianna and Bertha’s argument but pretty much missed the entire thing. But when she opened her eyes she noticed something about the sandy cave floor. It was seemingly slipping into the floor and she suddenly felt as if she was sinking. She propped herself up but instead of feeling sand or dirt she felt…wood. It took only seconds for the gears to start turning her head before she figured what her group was in.
They were on top of a trap door.
“W-Wake up!” she yelled “WAKE UP GIRLS!!!”
Everyone suddenly woke up and noticed what she noticed. But without warning the entire floor of the cave suddenly collapsed from under them and down they all fell (Brianna and Bertha included) into the darkness as the trap door closed behind them. She bounced and slid their way through the jet black tunnel with positively no idea where they were going or what was even happening. But what they did know, or rather feel, were a rocks they bumped into ev

“I thought you said the rain would pass!” Ottilie exclaimed.
“Okay, well I’m allowed to be wrong!” Brianna yelled back.
The group had found themselves caught up in a savage storm that had overtaken them faster than expected. They couldn’t tell what time it was and even if they knew the sky was so shrouded in clouds that they couldn’t tell how much time was passing. Their raincoats helped keep them slightly dry but some water managed to leak onto their dresses. And this was on an average storm in the Misty Mountains.
The girls were barely hanging on to the pathway without slipping and falling. Yet they went on, driven by the hope that the storm would stop soon.
“Be careful where you step!” Traude called out from in front of the group “We must find shelter!”
Brianna in the meantime was right in the middle of the group with Ottilie, Dorothea and Nadja. Dorothea and Nadja were in front and behind her so that in case s

Gillian rubbed her forehead in order to clear her mind. She’d been up pretty much the entire night and felt exhausted. Not exactly the right-frame of mind to be having a meeting. Silvana thought otherwise.
“Tell me, Gillian.” she said sternly “Did you honestly think these mad schemes of yours would go unnoticed?”
Gillian sighed and put her hands on the arms of the chair.
“Is helping these dwarves so bad?” Gillian said “From what I understand these young women need my help.”
“The dragon has long been on your mind.” Gerwazy said.
Gerwazy was currently right behind Gillian leaning on a pillar whist Edyta was across from her just standing around listening in. Gillian turned around to look at Gerwazy.
“It’s true, Gerwazy.” Gillian said as she turned back to Silvana “But if Smaug were to ally with the enemy, a dragon could be used to horrifying effect.”
Silvana blinked in surprise. “What ene

Around mid-afternoon, Edyta had decided to take a walk with her children in order to relax herself and take her mind off her guests. Unfortunately, her children were busy discussing the guests and Edyta felt rather aggravated. It seemed she couldn’t get any time alone with her children.
“I don’t know why you have to be so negative about our guests.” Elizaveta protested “They all seem very nice.”
“Did you see what they did at dinner yesterday?” Estera responded “They threw all our food about! They stained my dress and I don’t even want to tell you the state of the wine cellar. When the servants told me, I thought they were exaggerating.”
“Mother, I don’t usually agree with Estera but she might have a point.” Alfonso piped up “They are rather messy.”
“I’m aware of that son.” Edyta said “But they’re still our guests. And while they’re here, we will respect th
