Peace could be found in the silence of the fallen ruins. There was a stillness in the air that always seemed to calm Adrian's soul and clear his mind. He would be heading to Aelfmenn Kingdom for a week to then return home. His horse had been tied to a tree nearby and he planned to go back to get her, however he wanted to explore some of the more stable buildings. He had only been to the site a handful of times before now, and was usually on a strict time restriction. This time, he had no such time constraints and he was free to look around. He was cautious with what he stood on however, checking the stability of the walls and ceiling before he entered. If he was to be crushed here, he would die and he body might not be recovered for many months, maybe even years. These thoughts were enough to make him quite sensible in his decision making.
His eyes scanned across the rubble and debris, his shoulders relaxed as a lazy breeze brushed passed his hair. The air was chilly, but there was no snow on the ground, only puddles on the uneven ground. Adrian quietly pondered on the downfall of the city, the real history lost in time. He looked up to the tallest standing building, trying to imagine what it used to look like. It probably wouldn't be too accurate but it was nice to just think about silly things like that. He ignored his stomach that growled hungrily, knowing that he had chewed through the last of his money buying a better fitting saddle for his mare as it had started to hurt her as well as giving the last of his meat to Leon. He sighed and whistled loudly.
In about half a minute, a English Settler came racing up. Adrian smiled down at Leon, praising him softly. He crouched down to pat the dog but froze when he heard someone approaching. He narrowed his eyes at the person approaching and stood up again. Leon leaned against his leg, unbothered by the presence of a new person.
