As the sun drifted below the horizon, doors slammed shut, locks clicked into place and villagers huddled in the security of their houses. Once again, shadows flittered through the village square. Without any hesitation, the figures moved towards one door and found it to be less secure that was needed. Sweeping into the house, they attacked the individual within, howling in delight as they revelled in the violence.
Their evil activities over, they loped back into the darkness to enjoy the rest of the night. Inattention failed them this night as they failed to spot the figure hiding in an alleyway. They failed to hear the faint footsteps as the individual hurried into the house and collapsed to the floor beside the occupant - an occupant perilously close to death. Their work was deft, their skills unmatched and by the next morning... as everyone massed in the village square, noone was missing. The village has a very good healer indeed.
The howling during the night had not gone unheard however and, once again, accusations start to fly. Who will pay for the death of Ladysky? For the unnecessary death of Rafufu?
