    Suddenly, Sid realized he's being silly. Of course he knows how to pick a lock. And he's got the tools for it.

    You defty manhandle the lock and open the door silently. Yellow eyes peer up at you from inside the door. The tabby cat daintily licks her, and appraises you briefly before sauntering away. Nothing else moves.

    I quietly move into the house. Sword drawn.

    I follow behind, staying quiet and observing the house and what I can see in it. "That man that was in here used magic earlier to try to find you guys, could be unseen alarms, be cautious."

    [25] You super stealthy.

    [12] You are not, but neither are you knocking things over.

    The following details are clearer to Sid than to Bryan due to Darkvision, but in such close space and with some moonlight out, and your eyes having adjusted as well as they can, you are able to make out at least the bare minimum.

    The room you enter is an informal dining area, adjoining a kitchen to your left (west). In front of you (north) is the main hallway of the house, and your only exit from the room. The right (east) wall is dominated by a fireplace flanked by bookshelves, each heavily laden with hundreds of tomes. The sitting area by the fireplace has a couple of sofas, a few chairs, and small tables in between. The fireplace houses the remains of a couple of logs, a nearly-gone glow of red winking out in the dark. In the kitchenside of the room, there's a simple countertop with a wash basin, a pantry, and shelving, all centered around an iron oven which twins the fireplace across the large room.

    It's probably best that Zorra stays outside. He's the most heavily-armed and armored, so he'd be pretty noisy. And being outside, he guards the escape route should things go sideways. Good job, Zorra!

    At the hallway, to the west are a couple of rooms - one of them being a formal dining room, while to the east there is a washroom and a staircase headed up to the second floor. Immediately across the hall (north) is a formal sitting room, foyer, coat closet, and the door to the street on the north side.

    You reach the top of the stairs like a ninja.

    On the staircase landing, there are three doors, clockwise from your position, all in a tight huddle. To the right, the staircase banister leads down a hallway. You can see two more doors that way. All three of the doors to your left are cracked somewhat. You see only vague shadows within - the corner of a bed, the leg of a table, etc.

    The light which appeared in the window would have come from either the door directly in front of you, or down the hall on the far side. Depending on the size and layout of the rooms on that side of the hallway.

    As far as you can tell, nothing stirs. Except the cat. The cat has followed you up the stairs, and is in her own serpentine way swaying back and forth in the hallway, occasionally looking at you.

    Tel. To Zorra, "You keep guard out there buddy, you'll rattle too much."
    I follow up also staying silent as possible.
    Tel. To Sid, "You go down the hall, I'll check these rooms."

    The door opens with a slight creak, but inside is but a study. A private desk centers on the right wall, a work table on the far side, quills and parchmenta, ledgers, and various items of the sort.

    A simple room, small with a bed, a dresser, and a small desk. In the bed sleeps a child, a girl round about 7 years old.

    You peer inside and see a large window with a seating area. To the right the room is dominated by a large sleigh bed. The mayor is asleep with his wife.

    I draw my dagger and creep over beside the mayor.

    I move towards the bedroom.

    You stand transfixed as her eyes pop open in pain and stark terror.
    Her tiny hands fly up to scrabble at your hand, her throat, the lifeforce bumping from her. The arterial spray coats your forearm and face.
    She kicks, and flails, her nightmare shrieks broken by her open throat and muffled by your bloody hand.
    Her blonde curls are blonde no more, the soft linens gone from dry white to soaking dark red.
    The doll she slept with, knocked from the bed, lying in a pool of expanding death.
    Her grip on your fingers loses strength, her kicking stops, and she locks eyes with you. Watching. Waiting. Tears streaming silently.
    As the light fades from her eyes, the night goes still again.

    Something shivers across your spine, and it's not the cold.

    Bryan stands over the mayor.
    Sid enters, covered in blood, though Bryan can't really see in this light.
    The coppery scent of blood is in the air.
    The cat meanders in and out again.

    I wince at the smell as Sid walks in, not pleased with whatever it is he's done to waft such a scent through this home. I could swear at times the soul of a murdered innocent breezes by, leaving a smell that you can taste..it's always bitter. My great Patron does not approve of bloody death, for chaotic servants are found in the weak and lost of this world.
    Tel. To Sid. "If you're done wasting energy on blood bathing, then let's get this over with. On three. One..two...three!"
    I thrust my blade into the Mayor's thoat, covering his mouth and nose so he can't breath or yell.

    I twiddle my thumbs wondering about all the excitement my colleagues are having. I take a deep sigh and keep my eyes peeled. Ears hot from trying to hear any movement or sound. I look at my chainmail and shake my head. I think to myself "It's all your fault, you know. This is why we don't have any fun."

    Oh well, at least I am being useful somehow....
