    With a blade slammed close enough for her to reach, Keyleth did not need to be told another time. Snarling, she snatched the dagger from the stone and lunged forward, slashing at his throat. A feral scream clawed its way free from her. She drove her knee towards his gut, trying to drive him...

    She flinched as Nasir came to press against her form. Her breath froze in her lungs and she stared up at the drow's face. She swallowed once, leaning back slightly into the table. The knife she carried was in a difficult position to reach in her boot. But with him pressed against her, she...

    He was so much taller than her and she had to tilt her head back to meet his gaze. It was intimidating, there was no other way to describe his presence.

    "Wouldn't do me any good. The villagers outside ... I don't know how these ruins work... So it doesn't do me any good to kill you." She answered simply, turning a little when she noticed that he had taken a step closer to her. "What... Do you want?" She said in a low voice, almost defeated.

    She moved away from him when he took on the stern tone with her, shaking her head. Her arms folded over her chest as she wandered around the room in which she found herself. "Safe is up for debate." She retorted quietly. "My memory isn't gone. I remember what happened... What you and your...

    She walked over to Nasir, looking over her shoulder at the tablet he'd set back down on table. There were no dwarves in Minaris, she had no knowledge of their language or culture. "Can they get through that door?" She asked quietly, looking over her own shoulder towards the entrance. Her...

    Keyleth turned, but it took her eyes a few moments to adjust to the Stark darkness. She was breathing heavily, the only sound that echoed through ruins. "Why... Are you protecting me?" She demanded, seeing Nasir's silhouette by the door. She tucked the dagger she carried into her boot...

    She turned to follow Nasir's guidance, racing towards the cliffside with the stairs. Her heart was pounding in her chest, afraid of what would happen if the murderous townspeople caught her. Taking the steps two at a time, she swiftly moved towards the doors that loomed ahead. "What the hell...

    She knew that Nasir meant the rest of his men would soon descend upon the village of murderers and show them a taste of their own medicine. Until then, however, the two of them needed to survive. Instinct was a powerful motivator when it came down to it. Keyleth shook her head and moved to...

    As his hand came to rest on her waist, Keyleth returned to her senses and she quickly pulled herself back. Disgust surged in her stomach, followed shortly by a powerful wave of nausea. She didn't feel like herself anymore, she didn't know who she was anymore. Her life as she'd known it was...
