Aela went down the hall when she noticed that her parent's bedroom door was wide open. she rushed over worried and frightened. on the floor lay the bruised and bloodied body of her mother. Everything in the room was destroyed and her father no where to be found. Aela felt hot tears run down her face as she knelt beside her dead mother.
