Location: Padraith's House, outside of Scaltown.
The sky above was dark, and all across the island, fire burned to keep the shadows of Cylus at bay. Kura ignored them, instead focused on making the trek from her house to Padraig and Faith's house. It was cold as Faldrun's burned out heart, but Kura's furs kept her nice and warm, so she was able to ignore it. Under normal circumstances, the council member would have been out among the commoners at the bonfires mingling and getting a feel for the island. However, Faith had given birth while Kura had been up around Darbyton, and from the sounds of things it had been a damned mess. Plus she hadn't had the chance to speak to Padraig about his trip since he had returned, only hearing some rumors about barriers at the end of the world.
When she got to their house, and the adjoining house for Katie and Cyrus, Kura had a moment to wonder why she hadn't built her own home closer to her friends houses. It would have made visiting significantly easier, especially in the cold. However, she had wanted to live as close to the forest as she possibly could, so she wound up living a goodly distance away from the rest of the town. Still, she liked her house and was contemplating adding a library to it once she had her current debt paid off.
Pausing once she got to the porch, Kura took a look around, looking for anything odd. She had heard about the wild carriage ride through the town, and she had a guess as to who had been responsible for that from conversations with the others. Still, everything seemed quiet, and her familiars, who followed her out of the darkness at different points of entry, all agreed with her. After a moment, she nodded and knocked on her friends door, quietly so as not to wake the twins she had heard her friends now had. "Faith, Padriag? It's Kura." she said, keeping her voice low.
