Love Gone Wrong

Chapter 3

What's up guys? Here's #3!

Bryan was sitting at a Campfire he made in the forest, east of Markarth, looking at Muiri's ring, examining it.

He couldn't help, but feel sorry for the girl. She was going through a hard time, finds a man, and he uses her. Breaking her heart. It filled him with rage, but he controlled it.

He couldn't get her image out of his head either. Her beautiful blue eyes, her facial painting, her looks, yet, she looked so...defenseless. He saw the vulnerable look in her eyes. The bottom of the barrel she was in, the abyss she seems to can't climb out of, the memories of a broken heart.

The Dragonborn hope to restore her heart, somehow, perhaps by friendship. To let her know he was there with a shoulder to cry, a heart to rely, and a soul to trust. He didn't plan on doing the same as the bastard before.

He will stand his ground when she cannot, he will carry her, when she couldn't carry herself, and lead her through the darkness to the light.

He felt...attached, to the ring before him. The Sapphire shined in the moonlight that can peek through the limbs and leaves of the trees above. The silver left a lingering dim.

"Hm." He said to himself, putting the ring on his finger.

Side-Swing made it to Markarth the next morning. He spotted Muiri going towards the inn, and she entered.

He followed. He made his way to and inside the inn.

He looked past the busybody of the bar, and saw her in front of the fireplace, sitting down in a chair on the right.

Bryan walked around and to her.

"Hey," he greeted her.

She looked and saw him, then got up to face him, "Oh, you're here," she said with a smile.

"I told you I was coming to visit, did I not?" He asked with a grin.

"Yes, you did," she replied.

"Want to go somewhere else? Perhaps outside the city walls?" He asked.

"Sure," she said to him.

He nodded, then turned to walk. She followed.

They found a cozy spot on a stone wall sticking out, buried in the ground, outside Markarth.

"How have you been doing?" He asked.

"I've been trying to get by."

"Is it hard for you?"

"Not really."

He nodded, "How's your heart?" He asked, looking at her.

"It's...aching, from...loneliness," she admitted, looking back at him with a saddened look.

"Well, I'm here," he said as he chuckled.

She gave a short laugh, "You are."

"Is there anything I can do to help?"

"You being here is helping," she said to him.

"I hope so, there a way to restore your heart?" He asked.

She was taken aback from the question, was he asking what she thought he's asking?

"I...don't know, is there?"

"I'm sure there is," he said with a smile.

She smiled back, but with uncertainty.

Her smile faded as she got into thinking. Doubts were eating at her, and she wasn't sure if she was ready...

"If you want to give it some time, we can," he told her.

"I think that would be best," she said to him.

He nodded, but with a little bit of disappointment. He shrugged mentally, he was going to need time as well.

They spent the rest of the morning talking about a variety of subjects, such as Childhood, experiences, things like that.


I couldn't figure out how to make this one progress. I think I have something for the next chapter that will determine their future.
