9. Chapter 7

They walked to the main square where there are many shops and people. Alar spotted an inn nearby. When they went to check it out, the innkeeper informed them that there is only one free room and he asked if it's ok for them to share it.

"Well, I think we don't have a choice" Said Iryn while looking at Amaya whose cheeks became slightly red.

"Is there a problem Amaya? Do you want to have a room of your own?" She asked

"What? Oh... no.. I mean.. no problem, we can share the room.. this way is... umm..cheaper"

"Yeah you're right" then she turned to the innkeeper " we'll take it"

"Alright, I will bring an extra bed to the room in a while" he handed her the room key and showed them the way.

They entered the room and put their things on the floor.

"I wanna go explore the city, wanna come Amaya?"

"No, I need to rest for a while"

"Don't stay out late and don't cause any problems." Alar said.

"Ok, let's have dinner together when I come back" She said and walked out the door.

The sun is already setting, but the roads are still crowded.

"Orwyn is a very active city"

She stopped in front of a clothing shop "This is very... elegant for my taste, wait what?!" She noticed that it has to prices, one for Moon elves and one for "The others" that is three times more expensive!

"You've gotta be kidding me!"

She walked to another shop and noticed the same thing, even restaurants menus have two prices.

"The Moon elves have some big issues!"

It's dark already, but she continued walking until she stopped in front of a tavern named "The others tavern"

"Well that a strange name, I wonder if it has also that stupid two prices rule" she walked in and found that the customers are all humans, the workers are humans too.

"Maybe it doesn't, seeing all these humans gathering here"

She sat and ordered beer.

"Ahhh! Delicious!"

She drank a few beers and she started to feel a little light headed, when a man came and sat in her table.

"Hello pretty"

"Get lost"

"Ouch.. that's harsh"

She ignored him and continued drinking.

"You're new, never saw you before, wanna hang out?"

"Which part of get lost you didn't understand?"

"Oh come one, let's have fun!" He put his hand on her knee.

"The hell? Hands off you pig!" She reached for her dagger when she heard another man's voice

"You heard the lady" She looked up and saw a tall good looking Moon elf standing next to the man in front of her.

The man got angry and looked at the elf "That's not your..." The elf gave him one piercing gaze, the man tried to back off that he almost fell down from his chair, then he stood up and left.

"Can I sit down?" The elf asked Iryn.

"You chased him off to take his place? Funny, didn't need your help by the way. I can take care of myself just fine" She drew her dagger.

"Dangerous" The elf said with a blank expression. He continued "That's fine, keep your dagger near, you'll need it if that guy or someone else tried to do something funny." He started to walk away.

"Wait..." she called, he stopped and turned his face to look at her.

" You can sit... with me"

He turned around and sat. "Thank you".

In the inn, Alar was lying down on his back on one of the beds, his arm covered his eyes. Amaya was sitting uncomfortably on the side of another bed, feeling nervous being left alone with Alar.

“Why am I nervous? He’s not gonna eat me or anything. But, he got this frightening vibes coming from him that makes me scared. Maybe because I don’t know him or because I’ve never been alone with him.” She let out a small sigh “I know he’s a good guy, he’s Iryn’s father after all. I just have to get used to him being around” She looked at him while he was lying on the other bed. “He’s probably tired, I’m sure he didn’t sleep last night in the forest, who knows maybe he was thinking too much that he couldn’t sleep even the night before at Aldbridge.” She stood up and went to the bathroom “Oh, there is a bathtub, I’ll take a bath then to get rid of this fatigue”

She filled the tub, removed her clothes and stepped inside.

“Ah, feels good… This city is very weird. Why they didn’t let us use the library? I really had great hopes to find information about the keys locations in some book, what to do now? We have to think of another solution, I don’t want to give up so easily. Iryn said she will find a way but… ” She sighed.

“I was surprised that Alar didn’t drag us back to the port the moment that library girl kicked us out, I wonder why? He opposed to the idea of coming, and he claims that he came only to protect us. I don’t know, I feel like he’s hiding something.”

She stepped out of the tub “Or maybe it’s just my imagination.”

*click* The bathroom door suddenly opened, and Alar was standing at the doorway. Amaya stood shocked, totally naked and water drops running down her hair and body.

“There is something on the door called lock, use it next time” Said Alar with a blank expression, then he closed the door.

Amaya stood like that for a moment then she screamed “Aaaaaah!”

 

*****

Iryn looked at the elf sitting in front of her “Why are you here? I mean… You are an elf, and this is ‘The Others tavern’, It supposed to have only us, the others...”

“I think you are drinking too much, miss”

“None of your business. I allowed you to sit not to control my drinking.” She downed her cup and asked for another.

“Are you drinking because something is upsetting you?” the elf asked.

“Something? Everything is upsetting me, this is an upsetting land, it seems” She took a sip then continued “You people are weird, crazy and disgusting. Yeah …. weird-crazy-disgusting-moon-elves…. that’s right … you are all...” She took another sip, the elf was looking at her, his face betrayed no emotion.

“You see… I am on a quest with my friends… we came here…. because… we heard that Orwyn’s library hosts lots of books…. and we need some … information… but that …. bitch in the library ….” She wanted to drink but found the cup is already empty “another one please...” She drank and continued “What was I saying… Oh yeah… The library bitch kicked us out because… we are not elves… nor students in Orwyn academies… What a stupid rule… I thought everyone has the right to learn….” She paused for a while “Well it’s not like you people know anything…. about .. rights… seeing that you … think that… you are superior to other races …”

“I think you drank a lot, maybe you should stop” the elf said.

“Maybe you’re right… I … need to go...” She stood up, but her knees couldn’t carry her, she lost her balance, the elf reached to her and caught her before she hit the ground. He looked at her face, she had red cheeks and her eyes were closed. She lost her consciousness. He left money on the table, then put an arm on her back and the other under her knees, and he carried her.
