Sorry this Chapter took so long to get out. Laziness combined with computer problems and sickness got the best of me. I promise to the next Chapter out sooner. Also sorry this one is short, but I'm planning on the next one to be a lot longer.

Training slowed down after a few weeks after that. As I
expected, my talent with a bow was nowhere to be found. Meanwhile, Lucia would
be gone three of the six days we spend training. She says she goes to Whiterun,
but that's all she'll say. I don't question it much, mostly since I didn't
care, at least at first. I enjoyed the break I got throughout the week, but I'm
not one to sit on my but all day doing nothing. Over the last week was when I
started to question her more about the visits. Surprising enough, she seemed to
answer rather fine.
"I go for money, mostly. And supplies occasionally, though
Riverwood and hunting usually keep me stocked." I could tell she was lying, or
at least, not telling the whole truth.
"No other reason?" I asked.
"None I'd share with you," She said, letting me know I
shouldn't keep prying.
I took the hint with a grain of salt.
"Maybe you should take me with one day; I'd love to see the
city. I've heard it's quite a sight to see."
She raised her eyebrows unexpectedly "You wouldn't be amazed
by it, I'm sure. It's large, but still smaller than Solitude."
"But that's not the point," I replied. "You've been gone too
much, leaving me with nothing to do! You can only have so many conversations
with a guy like Eric before you get bored. Besides, I quite enjoyed the
She laughed, "Is it the training, or my company?"
Instantly I could feel my face turn bright red. It was
something she was quite good at; to be honest, probably better than she is with
"I'll consider it. I have to leave again the day after
tomorrow. I'll take you with me if I feel the need. Until then, you'll stay. I
know it gets in the way of you training, but I can't do anything about it. I
have business I must attend to there, and it's been getting even worse lately,
but you might be able to help with that. We'll just have to see." She walked
out of the house, probably to get her, or maybe it was mine at this point in
time, bow ready.
I followed her slowly, but not before thinking more of her
remark about me enjoying her company. It was true, I had grown a bit attached
to her, though it's hard not to when you've spent nearly a month with that
person. However, it was obvious she meant romantically. Normally I'd deny it,
but the more I thought about, the more I started to question whether or not
that she was right.
I decided to shake the idea out of my head. It was clear she
did it to mess with me, and nothing else. No other reason behind it. I hope.
