Music: My Quiet Forest Home

Here's a side story from Chapter 1 that I never got around to until now.

But the way there passes through dangerous woods, and I daren't go alone. If only I could find a kind soul to escort me there.

Before we do so, let's visit her husband first.

My work's not done here, an' can't spare the time to meet her. I pray to the gods she finds honest company to travel with...

I...guess they're perfect for each other? They both seem a bit unhealthy in their obsession for each other, though.

Anyway, with fast travel this is trivial.

Music: Enveloped in Kindness

But why risk the journey, love? Just a few more weeks an' my work would've been done here...
Forgive me. I had a gift for you, and I just couldn't wait...

I ordered them special, from the cobbler. I thought they'd help you at work. I knew you would like them, and I just couldn't wait to give them to you.
You bring joy to my heart, my love! And to see you safe and sound is the greatest joy of all...

You're...welcome? All we did was bring your wife here, she's the one who got the shoes and all.

It's all thanks to you.

Looks like the happy couple are going to work together so they can stay together. If it works for them, it works for me!

Short and simple. I'll do another pair of side stories before we tackle the next character. Until next time!
