Skin You Alive by ChloexBowie Skin You Alive by ChloexBowie
"The moving torches inside the complex showed her the position of the patrolling guards, making it easy to avoid them. Gulum-Ei was limping his way up in the direction of the dry-dock. Aronansa followed him, silently making her way between the many barrels and crates that were stacked on the top rack. She could not resist the temptation to remove the lid from some of the crates; wine, books, wine, spices, clothes and more wine… Nothing worth the effort of taking it with her.

As she turned herself to put the lid back on one of the crates she could feel it slip through her fingers… Her heart skipped a few beats as she watched the wooden lid falling down to the ground. A loud bang could be heard throughout the warehouse as it slammed on the floor!

“What was that?!”

Aronansa could see two of the guards hasten themselves to the storage rack she was hiding. Why did she had be so reckless?! Taking such a stupid risk!

“I swear I heard something here… look there!” The Orc warehouse guard picked up the lid from the floor.

“It must have fallen of the top.” The other guard stated.

“Here hold this, I am going to check it out.” The Orc handed over his torch to the other guard as he drew his blade and pulled himself up at the rack. Aronansa pushed herself as close to the crate as possible. She could not stay here! But there was no way she could move without them spotting her. She felt him climb up the second level; just one more…!


I high pitched scream echoed through the warehouse… followed by a loud, frenzied hissing. “Damn it! That foul thing scratched me!” The Orc looked at his bleeding hand; four even cuts marked' His tusks were visible as his face showed rage. “I am going to skin you alive!” 

As he attempted to pull himself up the top level again his fellow guard shouted at him. “Leave that cat alone! We have too many rats here as we speak. You probably already scared the thing away, with that ugly face of yours! “

The Orc mumbled a list of insults as he lowered himself down on the floorboards again. ‘I’ll tell you, the first cat I’ll see walking up to me is going to end up a rug!”

Aronansa took a deep breath as she heard the men walk away. She looked at her left hand. “Disgusting…” she whispered as she removed the pieces of dark green skin from underneath her fingernails."

I used to love sneaking around here, a natural cave turned into a dock. Just loved its atmosphere. I'd swap that place for my apartment anyday! Although... the moisture in the air probably wouldn't be great for all my books an electronics!

That reminds me of that bandit hideout that's north of Solitude. Kharjo's amulet is almost always in there. Definitely a cool place!
