Shanna_redwind | 598 comments Lady Shanna's Blueberry Adventure- Gathering Berries

The sky was darkening when I finally arrived in the city. My feet hurt, and I was pretty sure that my blisters had developed blisters, but despite the pain, I felt exhilarated.

I'd left the whole mess behind me, and no one had a hold on me anymore. Rather short on coin, I bypassed the first few inns that I came across without even checking the prices. They were obviously out of my reach. Finally I saw a small place off of a side street that didn't look expensive, but also didn't appear to be a place that I'd have to watch my back all the time.

The front was homey looking. Clean, but worn and a bit run down. Over the door read a sign simply saying Sasha's Place. I stepped through the door and into the welcome warmth of a small dining room. The hearth was crackling merrily and there were several patrons eating meals. They glanced up with mild interest when I walked in and quickly went back to their meals.

A middle aged lady with a red face and black hair up in a bun that was beginning to come undone bustled in. "Have a seat, dearie and I'll bring you a bowl of stew."

"I'd like to rent a room," I reply.

The lady glanced me over with a shrewd gleam in her eye. "I imagine that you're looking to pinch your coins?"

I gave a one shouldered shrug. "Who isn't these days?" I asked.

"Well," the lady said slowly. "I can give you the room for 5 silvers if you can do me a favour."

I nodded, for this seemed a very good price.

"I need some blueberries picked for me." She left for a moment and returned with a map. "I need them to come from here." She handed the parchemnt to me. "Don't try to get away with picking them elsewhere, or I'll know."

So after tucking in a bowl of stew, I settled in for the night. I'd been looking for adventure. Picking berries wasn't exactly that, but it was saving me on my bill at the Inn.

In the morning I set out to find the berries. As I drew closer to the location marked, I noticed that there seemed to be more people dressed in grey and bright white. And the horses were a bright white too, with too-intelligent blue eyes.

I felt very out of place in my grubby adventuring clothing as I arrived at a fenced in area. The gates were odd, with ropes on the latches. As I stepped through the gate, I fervently hoped that the innkeep had permission to be here. I'd assumed that she had but...

A white horse suddenly stood in my path. :Just what do you think you're doing?: came a stern bell-like voice in my head.

I stood frozen. "Uh," I managed, putting the most intelligent inflection I could on the grunted syllable.

The white creature held its stern stance for a moment longer, then the bell-tone sounded again in my head, this time overlayed with amusement. :I'm sure you've been sent by Sasha. She's always sending new adventurers this way. She claims that the berries in our pen have magical qualitys due to the...fertilizer that they grow in, but secretly I think that she's hoping one of her new duckies will get Chosen. Sorry it's not you, but I will take you to the berries:

So I followed the gleaming white creature over to a small patch of blueberries, picked all the ripe ones and headed back to Sasha's Place. She took the bucket of berries. "Excellent," she said. "They're just what I was looking for. Here's a map to the next patch."

She handed over another parchment and I took it, then settled down to eat my meal.

Shanna_redwind | 598 comments "Whoa!" I mutter under my breath as I stumble out into the glaring sun with the feeling that a great deal of time has passed. I lift my hand to shade my eyes and notice just a hint of fading blue. "What the....?" And that horrible bloated feeling.... Thank goodness it was fading.

My last memory was of eating some sort of berry....

I spin as I hear a sound behind me. Sasha bustles up. "I'm so glad you're feeling better. I should have warned you about them berries, but I never got the chance. You've been in my inn for almost a year now. I've covered yer costs, but now that yer feeling better ye can get out questing again."

Shanna_redwind | 598 comments With the sighting of the Great White Dragon, my time to leisurely shop for a dog was over. We needed everyone that we could hunting for those Merely Kats, and there weren't very many trained dogs about. It was my turn to get a dog and get through the training as quickly as possible.

I stepped into the shop with everything ready, though I was shamed to admit I'd had to purchase a couple of the necessary items.

Right next to the door, there was a cage with a dog in it. Stuck to the front of the cage was a sign that read, "My name is Cooper and I've been here for long enough. I'm on sale for a special rate."

I glanced down the room at the other cages, and could see that all of the other available dogs cost much more. I knelt down in front of the cage, and a sleek tan and white shape moved forward, tail wagging in a friendly manner.

The shopkeeper, seeing my interest hurried over. "That's a fine dog he is. Why don't we get him out for you to have a better look?" Quickly he pulled the door open and invited the dog out. He came out of the cage, tail wagging furiously.

"Friendly," I commented.

"He is that," the shopkeeper replied. "And he has the makings of a good hunter. In fact he's best in wide open areas." After letting the dog sniff me and then look around for a couple of minutes, he asked, "So what do you think?"

He seemed to be in an awful hurry for me to take the animal, and that made me rather suspicious, so I asked, "Does he have any bad habits?"

The shopkeeper shook his head. "Nothing, really. Nothing that every puppy doesn't have. I've been working with him, and he learns quickly and behaves well. If behaviour or health is a problem in the first two weeks, I can offer a money back guarantee.

Well, that seemed reasonable, and despite the shopkeeper's badly hidden haste to get the dog gone, he was the only one I could afford. So we completed the transaction, and I had my dog.

When I stopped to look at a display, the shopkeeper held the door open. "You'll want to hurry along and get Cooper settled in at your lodgings." With a curious backward glance at him, I allowed the shopkeeper to hurry me out.

Only a few feet from the shop, the rank smell of a swamp assaulted my nose and I almost gagged at its intensity. I wondered if the sewers were backed up, but I was soon distracted from the now fading smell by the eager animal that danced along beside me on the lead. He would dash to my left, eagerly sniffing at a pot left by the side of the road, then almost tripping me, dash to the right and sniff at a clump of grass. He seemed an absolutely delightful animal.

When I was almost back to the boarding house, the same stench almost closed my throat. I moved quickly away from a nearby sewer opening, thinking that we would have to complain about the condition of the sewers. It seemed odd though, that I'd smelled nothing on my way to get my new companion.

Finally back, I set a bowl of food and water down for Cooper who, after making a through examination of his surroundings, gobbled the food down, had a long drink of water, and flopped down to sleep with the intensity that only puppies have.

I had just settled down to my own meal of bread and meat, when suddenly I couldn't breath. The aroma in the room was the same as what I'd smelled outside, but inside the intensity was so strong that my eyes watered. I quickly swallowed the mouthful of food, then almost heaved it back up again as I dashed for my window. I swear I could see tendrils of noxious green gas hanging in the room. After sticking my head out the window and desperately gasping for fresh air, I took a deep breath, pulled my head back in and glared at the innocently sleeping puppy. "Ye gods, animal. No wonder he wanted you out of there."
