Subject: Evil Beware Part I
I knew it was a mistake.
Like the time I was drunk and assaulted the elderly man, I
got caught up in the moment.
By the time I got to the church, I was quite irritated
from having to deal with some invisible attackers. Then,
to top it off, I was unable to practice my craft.
I got into the church, and there it was. I could not even
tell how much was in there, and that made me even more
mad. He kept an eye on me, but not like he was watching
a thief. He noticed my scratches and healed them. He was
silent. Every time moved to take what I came for,
something stopped me. He just kept smiling at me, and I
became more and more irritated. Finally I snapped.
I did not even bother with a back stab. No, acting as if
I were a obnoxious warrior instead of a stealty thief, I
went for the angry, frontal assault. My blade was drawing
blood before even I knew what was happening. I saw red
and was in a bezerked frenzy. In spite of his pleas and
his efforts to teleport me away, he died that day.
I knew it was a mistake the moment I took what I came for. In my battle drunken
state I had not seen it. But the
moment I touched the cash, I realized I
had done the wrong thing. This was a good man. I had
shed innocent blood.
I have tried to wash the stains off my hands for months,
but I still see them sometimes.
I wandered south, unsure of my destination. I believe I
was moaning Robert Johnson’s "Walking Blues" or it was at
least going through my mind. I was at a loss.
I felt tainted. I was tainted. My soul had shifted
towards the evil I so despised. I had behaved as a crude, evil warrior instead of
a good thief with honor.
I was still in a fog while slinking down the Southern Road
when I heard her. Barely audible at first. But as I came
closer, I saw her grief and experienced her weeping.
Seeing her suffering roused my curiosity and took my mind
off of my own misery for a few moments.
"My baby" is what she cried when her eyes met mine. I
looked around and saw no child. "They took my baby." My
jaw clenched as and I started feeling that warmth again.
"A couple of elves, and a woman. They knocked me down,and
took my Charlie." After getting a description of the
child and the threesome,I told her that I would do my best
to retrieve her son.
I was not sure of where to start. She thought that they
headed further south, so I traveled that direction. I had
heard about some elves to the east, so when I found
a path to my left, I took it.
The hooker was not helpful at first. She just kept trying
to proposition me, and initially said that she had not
seen any elves carrying a red haired child. But as I was
leaving, in an effort to entice me further she said,
"Well, I may know of a wood elf that handles babies a
lot." I gave her back one of the coins I had stolen from
her and said, "Tell me more." "Well, there is an elf that
hangs out at the bar down the road a bit. He is the one I
go to when I get pregnant. He takes care of me and my
little problems." "What are you talking about?," I asked,
not yet seeing the picture clearly." "I sell him my
babies, silly. Do you think I want a dozen rug rats
hanging around interfering with my business?" hanging
around interfering with my business?"
I have not ever felt bad about having her blood on my
I sat down in the corner, with a glass of something they
called "Blossom" in front of me.
I was just about to take my first drink when he walked in.
I could tell he was bad news from the moment I laid eyes
on him. The arrogant fool was throwing around gold like
it was sawdust, he bought a drink for the lady and even
one for the drunken idiot. I sat and I listened. I could not hear everything they
murmured, but when the woman
whispered,"I can’t believe they gave us 900 for that red
haired brat," I knew that I had found at least two of the
