PostSubject: The Pale Rider and The Wicked Witch (tag:Ulric)   Fri Dec 19, 2014 4:43 am

It was a dark night, hard winds blew in it was cold... she could feel the wind go right through her, the wagon held no bars but it was a cage. She was an import, simply cargo the men were drunk and reaked of many smells that offended the nose but she didn't care she stayed in the eyrie silence she had been known for. Other girls cried, wept, begged for help but she was utterly silent and it unnerved them.

It was a caravan of misery, girls to be taken and moved around Westeros from place to place it was a profitable business but they had been getting bold and boisterous using the coasts of the Seagard to operate. Anthy was away from the others on the cart, they were scared of her to for her hands were bound along with her ankles even her mouth gagged. For they thought her a servant of the devils, ever since she slipped something into a mans drink and watched as he sputtered out bile. A witch they called her, and wished to be rid of her as fast as possible she would gone by morning.

But for now she sat in silence listening as the men boasted and cheered at their labour laughing as they sang songs of pillaging and gold.

Ulrick had never cared for cold nights like that one. The winds numbed flesh and bone, chilled his very blood. He hoped the slavers' victims had adequate clothing or the maesters would be busy removing frostbitten limbs. He pulled his hood further down, grasping the reins of his pale horse. "Aethan, take your men and flank them. Make sure to stay hidden. Daryn, cover the charge with your archers and don't let any of the slavers flee." He commanded, adding, "This must be quick and without innocent blood spilled."

Once both groups were in place, Ulrick unsheathed his sword, and spurred his steed on. Most of the slaves were huddled in the middle, so their captors would spot any trying to flee if they managed that. There had been a couple of dead girls found as his men tracked them along the coast (after the initial reports had gotten to Ulrick). The slavers were too busy being loud to notice the steady approach of the horses. It was only when the firelight caught in the dark metal of Ulrick's armor that they realized they were under attack. By then, Ulrick had taken one man's head and another man's arm, and Aethan and his men had closed in on the other side. Ulrick heard the whizzing of arrows, and was confident that they would find their mark. Glancing around, he saw his men make quick work of the slavers, and dismounted to free the girls cowering in the center of the skirmish. One seemed to be more heavily restrained than the others. He strode over, reaching out for the cloth that gagged her. "Are you hurt, my lady?" he inquired, shouting over the din of the fight.

The fighting had started abruptly all in a flash it had wrecked through her serene silence. When she opened her eyes everyone was in a panic. The other girls trying to hide from the fighting, one had even slipped off and went running.

Anathia had only to blink before her vision was filled with the image of a pale man in dark armor, he looked almost like some kind of spirit or spectre his skin was so pale. Her eyes went side at the sight of him for she had never heard of the west having men like him. Such a pallor seemed reserved for gods demons and great sorcerers. When he spoke she understood the words and held the meaning, he was setting her free.

When the gag was removed she gave him a soft smile before leaning in to speak softly "Valar morghulis..." giving her savior a soft kiss upon the lips before withdrawing to bow her head. Then her serenity was broken as she set upon her bonds using her teeth to pull the ropes and free a hand.

Ulrick froze when the strange woman kissed him. He'd thought there would be spoken thanks, maybe a clasped hand or two, but never would he have guessed that someone would be so forward! He didn't understand what she said, but it sounded like a tongue from Essos. Perhaps the kiss was their way of thanks. Strange custom, that. "Let me." he said, untangling the other part of the knotted rope, pulling the frayed line from her wrists. He checked her over for wounds he could see in the firelight, but saw nothing. Hopefully she would tell someone if she was wounded, if she had the words.

"That's the last of them, my lord!" Aethan called out, the sounds of the fight now reduced to the whimpering of dying and doomed men, and the sobbing of the frightened slaves.

"Very well. See that the slaves are freed and on the horses immediately." Ulrick ordered, "I do not want them out in this godsforsaken weather any longer than is necessary." He looked back at the foreign woman next to him, and extended a hand to help her up. "You're safe now, my lady." he told her with a smile, hoping she might still understand his words in a way. He'd have to see if his maester knew what language she spoke so that they might return her home.

She watched him resuming her placid serene gaze while the other girls were freed happily though they began whispering to the soldiers. Anthy knew that soon enough she would more then likely be cast out as quickly as possible but perhaps her fate could be changed if a man such as him was here than there was hope for a trick.

She gently took his hand standing though quickly 'tripped' over her own ankle bindings putting her arms around Ulric to stop herself from falling over instead falling into him. Holding unto him tightly as she looked up into his eyes, what was probably once lovely hair and skin covered with dirt, half dressed in unsuitable clothing for a lady but those great pools that were her eyes stared into him. His armor was cold but the cloak about him was warm she could not help but shiver at another blast of wind.

Ulrick quickly caught her, and he wrapped his arm around her waist to make sure she was supported. "I've got you." he said, wrapping his cloak around her shoulders. She was a pitiful sight, in desperate need of better clothes and good food. He could not stand someone being so wrongfully treated. "Come, follow me." Ulrick told her, easing her towards his horse. The others were seen to his mens' horses as well, and they would all be underway in a moment. He hoisted her up onto the saddle and took his place behind her, making sure that she was well covered with his cloak against the wind. "We move out!" he shouted, tugging on his steed's reins.

Anthy could not help but blush softly as he caught her and put his cloak around her, this was a good man so far no stares or leers and he had saved her. She made no move to protest as she was guided to and placed gently upon the horse, gently running her fingers over the creature before leaning back into the lord. She didnt even flinch when he shouted, calm and serene unlike the other women, but finally that lyrical soft voice spoke again only after they had taken off on their way by horseback ".... thank you" as she snuggled into him using him as a shield against the battering winds.
