Slowly turning into the alley way along side the vented building before she came to a stop at the back. Fola dismounted from the horse, clanking heavily in her armor. Leading Suciche by his reins to a fence that lined the open back of the building and tied him to a post.
She straddled the fence and leaned over to look into the building. "Ye there Dean?" she called from the fence. After waiting several minutes with no answer she jumped down and walked inside. "Where are ya?" calling again, this time with a hint of agitation. Scanning the spacious but cluttered hall.
She walked past shelves and tables littered with miscellaneous scraps of metal and leather. While stopping to inspect a half finished set of scale-mail ; she heard a gruff yawn followed by several clanging noises.

A small caravan peacefully moved through brisk winter air. Around the travelers were tall, almost ominous trees. It was dim but not yet dark and enough light to illuminate the snow.
Amidst the dark of looming trees and almost blue hued snow came the thunder of hurried hooves. Horses and dogs within the caravan became nervous. Horses that were harnessed to the wagons jerked and reared up on their hind legs. Dogs that skirted the wagons growled and bared their fangs.
The travelers struggled to steady their horses and tripping over themselves to silence the dogs. Soon even they heard the heavy pounding of hooves. Finally getting their animals under some control, their eyes looked for the source of the noise.
