Lièrén watched Shie coming up the steps, finding it a little bit of a struggle because she had obviously had more than one cup of sake, he smiled and stopped his work for the evening, walking over to Shie and picking her up in his arms, carrying her to her room and placing her gently onto her bed.
"You did well Shie, now it is time for you to rest, sleep well"
Lièrén then exited her room and closed the door behind him, then he walked downstairs and took the sword out from behind the counter again to have a better look at it. It was a plain enough sword, with a strong and sharp blade, well balanced, then he noticed a little symbol near the pommel, it was small and Lièrén was only just able to make it out, it looked to be a rune of some kind, a magical symbol, which raised more questions but it also answered how it was able to kill demons, it was enchanted with a spell which killed demons.
"What have I walked into here?"
He asked himself and then placed the sword back and headed up to his room, where he sat on his bed topless, and for the first time in many years, he prayed to The Gods for the strength to protect the village from harm.
