Mica fell in behind and followed the group without speaking. If the dog's trail was lost then the easiest way would be to ask gnome to pick up the trail for us, but doing so may alert Kiran to our following him. If not him, one of the two other dark elven women, one being that wretched whore Thiana. If we could make it seem natural, follow them with just a single gnomish spirit, it might be easier to track them. However, there is still the matter of whether or not they would manipulate it to give false information. It depended solely on our control of the spirit. If we exerted a certain amount of force to get it to work for us and only us, than there's a slim chance... Mica's thoughts continued to follow whether or not to bring up the subject of using the spirits to track them, at least a little.

As Sythenra tracked on, the sun fell in the sky until they were in the dark. Luckily, dark elves could see better in the darkness than humans, so Sythenra could continue tracking. As they came to a road breaking off from the main, the ranger went to investigate. The group paused while she examined the ground, and she soon found the signs of passage. "They went this way!" she announced, excitedly.

"Great news." Mica exclaimed. "We should make haste." The half-elf said with moderate enthusiasm. He was used to working nights as it was, the cover of the night was better for an assassin in anyway.

Adriel made a quick turn down the new road, following Mica and Sythenra with determination. Was there another village? What if they actually found Kiran up ahead? The young dark elf was ready to face his father, and hopefully Mica would let him get his licks in.

As the group continued on, they arrived in a small village. It was dark and quiet as most of the residents were sleeping. A single inn was near the center of town. "An inn," he pointed out. "We should investigate it."

Yrsanne's eyes skimmed over the building. "Investigate?" she asked, an eye brow quirking. "This isn't a murder scene..." Yrsanne took a sideways glance at Mica. "Not yet, at least."

"Planning another attempt at murdering some poor yokel?" Mica asked, not bothering to look back at Yrsanne. Not giving her the time to respond, Mica answered Adriel. "Yeah, we should go investigate the inn."

"That's cute," Yrsanne said with a snake-like grin to Adriel. "He insults himself for me. It gets easier and easier."

Adriel refrained from making a reaction to Yrsanne's statement. The last thing he wanted to do was pick a side in the conflict, let alone allude to it. The dark elf went to the door of the inn and tested the handle, finding it locked. "Locked. How should we proceed?" Adriel asked. "I do not want to arouse suspicion by trying to knock on the door. Can any one pick a lock?"

"I can." Mica stated. He hadn't picked locks since he was a child, but it was something he was good at. "I need a hairpin." he admitted. "Either that or a needle."

Adriel considered what he may have, and realized the jewelry that he had brought for trade. The dark elves didn't exactly use money, except in dealing with humans. Only so much had been given to him, and to make up for that, his mother had given him a few pieces of her jewelry to trade. Slipping his pack off his shoulder, Adriel dropped it to the ground and knelt to rummage inside it. Once he found his collection, he searched for a long enough piece of metal and came across a set of silvered hairpins his mother once wore. "Perfect," he said, then handed them over to Mica.

Mica took the pins silently and slid up near the door. Gently working them into the lock he pressed his ear against the door and closed his eyes. Luckily the lock was pretty simple, four small tumblers in the internal mechanism, a common configuration for house door locks. With a small click from each tumbler that was worked into place with the two hairpins, Mica tried the door again, not to jostle it too hard. With one more final click the door opened slightly with just Mica's weight on it. He retrieved the hairpins and returned them to Adriel.

Adriel tucked the pins into his coat pocket and secured his traveling pack on his back again. With the door open, Adriel peeked in through the crack and saw the common room empty. Quietly, he pushed open the door and stepped around Mica. Walking carefully on the floorboards, he tried not to make a sound, but despite that, they were discovered. The innkeeper in bed clothes stepped out of the kitchen with what looked to be a club in his hand, and made a dash for Adriel. The dark elf quickly whipped his rapier out and had it at the man's throat, stopping him in midstride.

"Don't hurt me...take what ye want!" the innkeeper pleaded, seeing that he was no match for the dark elf. He dropped his club--which appeared to be a leg from a broken chair that had been sanded down into a weapon--and raised his hands.

"All I want is information," Adriel spoke softly. "We are seeking a dark elven man. He should have a dark elf woman with a large black dog in his company."

"And there may possibly be a third woman," Sythenra interjected as she stepped up alongside Adriel, hand on the hilt of her sword defensively.

"F...first room on the left," he said, pointing to the stairs.

Mica nodded and strode past Adriel and the innkeeper. Going to the room silently, the half-elven assassin felt the brush of the cold night air on his legs. He pressed his ear to the door and listened for a moment. No sounds other than the curtains in the wind came from his listening. With a gentle push against the door he made it make a sound, to see if anyone made a motion in the room. So far, all he was greeted with was silence.

"I don't think they're in there anymore Adriel." Mica stated. "Inn keep, do you have a spare key for this room? We would be so inclined to search the room for a moment."

With a shaky hand, the innkeeper took his keys out of the pocket of his night clothes and offered it to Adriel, who had yet to relax his stance. After he found the correct key, Adriel took them with his free and held them behind him. "Sythenra, please take these to Mica," he said to the ranger. "I have a few questions for the innkeeper."

The ranger quickly snatched the keys from Adriel and hurried upstairs to where Mica waited.

"Now, were there two women with him?" Adriel asked.

The innkeeper nodded. "I only saw the one first, a beautiful dark elf in purple, she rented a room alone," he explained. "I went up to check on her at night, and the other two and their dog were sharing the room with her. The fellow said she was his daughter."

Mica took the key graciously from Sythenra with a small nod of appreciation. Fitting the key into the lock he worked it open, and pushed open the door with a heavy hand. There was not much inside, mussed beds from people woken early and an open window for which they made their escape. "Help me look for clues please." Mica asked of Sy as he wandered into the room.
