"Hear ye! Hear ye! Strange Hirelings seen near Castle Blackthorn! Travel with Caution!" The Man stood in the shadows listening to the echo's of the criers, a hint of a cruel smile forming on his face. Making his way through the darkness, the man returned to the altar where The Stranger stood, absorbing the energies that coursed back and forth as they pulsated and twittered in excitment. "You have done your first assignment well", the man said. "This will put them on the defense. They will not know who the target is." The Stranger stood with red eyes gleaming. As the dark orbs passed through her body, her strength grew stronger. And a new plan formed..one in her own mind. The man would find out soon enough..closing her eyes, she rested.
