Aria was perched in the shadows, behind a young bush. She looked ahead, at the bank of the river Anduin, scanning the banks for a young man she had to meet. The Lady of the Woods had told her something about him; he was and elf. Aria could have figured out that much for herself. It wasn't safe for anything else to enter the woods. She also know that his weapon of choice was a massive, long-bow, that could use masterfully. But Aria was not here for that.
She was here for the item he had. The Lady had been vague, not telling her much. All what she had said was that it was an item, filled with darkness, corrupting the holder to a point where every single bone in the holders body was nothing but evil. She did not know why she had been chosen to take it away, but she must obey. The Lady, unfortunately, had said nothing to her about getting rid of it. Aria assumed that the man she would meet would have those answers.
The journey here had been relatively easy. She lived in a village, not to far from the river. The journey would have been a joke, if she was not to reveal herself to anybody, but the man with the item.
Suddenly Aria spotted someone. A very handsome looking Elf, holding a majestic long-bow stood a couple yards downstream. She knew instantly that this was the man that she had been looking for. He was playing with something in his hand. Something small and delicate.
"This must be the Item!" she hissed, and she disappeared into the trees, getting ready to meet the man.
She swiftly maneuvered herself around the trees, directly behind the man. Looking around Aria saw, nor sensed, no other living being. She had been told that the man was friendly, but she did not take any chances. Pulling one of her knives out from its resting place on her sash she approached the man, and said loudly, "Stranger, do you have the item?"
