Lièrén took his pack off and dropped it onto the ground without stopping, he picked up speed and drew his sword, heading into the town, there were no guards and it was deathly quiet, he ran further into the town, to the town centre and in the middle, there was a huge fire burning, he stopped running, he was breathing heavily.
Walking up to the fire he stopped a short way and cursed, then he ran back to Shie.
"We have to get out of here right now, the fire, someone or something has killed all of the people here and piled them up and set them on fire, we have to get back to the village right now"
He picked up his pack and hers and put them on his shoulders, then he waited for her to put her overclothes back on.
"Please Shie, we need to go before we join that pile, there is evil here, I can feel it in the air"
He looked around for signs of demons or humans on the rampage.
Oh damn, I need to run back in for a moment, please, stay here where it is safe, I will be one minute"
He dropped the packs again and ran into the town, he soon found the building he was looking for; the blacksmiths. He ran in and grabbed the first sword he could find, one would have to be enough for now, he could make more once he got back to the village.
Wielding both of the swords, he then ran to another building and found wrappings that contained meat, meat that could be taken back to the village for the inn, it would have to do for now, he could return later for more if need be.
He was about to exit the building when his blood turned cold as he heard a low hissing noise, he dropped the wrapped meat and turned, holding both swords in one hand each. When he had turned fully, he saw the one thing he didn't want to see; a demon staring right back at him with blood red eyes and teeth as sharp as razors.
"God save me" He muttered under his breath and then prepared to defend himself.
