    Godrick moved cautiously over to Silas.

    He lowered the torch so he could see the bone shards on the floor.

    “B-by the Light… do not d-disturb the bones.” Godrick said not angrily but firmly.

    “The Shadow protects”, mumbled Silas as he moved forward, and stopped suddenly. “Shadow Dwellers, show yourselves!” shouted the Highwayman. Moments later, a handful of Shadow Spirits, angry to be called.

    "Frometh ashes thou were borneth, and to ashes thou shall be returneth, for thou art the Chosen Undead."

    The musician blinked in surprise as he held up his sickle and dagger while shielding Godrick.

    “Shadow what?”

    "Ack! Pulled a muscle!"

    My art!

    Gah! What in the Weald!?”

    Godrick’s eyes hummed with some nameless blue energy, the light intensified further.

    Silas engaged the conversation with the spirits in the language of the Ancient Empire, strict and military sounding. Moments later, the Spirits made the gesture of hitting their armor with their closed fist, thanking Silas. They then marched out of the catacombs, Silas having gave them info about the path to take. They walked like legionnaries, and were soon out of view. “They told me all they know about this place”, said Silas simply. “They have been trapped here since twenty years, unable to leave. But since the entry is open, I told them to get to the Graveyard.”

    "Frometh ashes thou were borneth, and to ashes thou shall be returneth, for thou art the Chosen Undead."

    Godrick was uncomfortable to put it mildly.

    “You spoke to the spirits of the dead?” His hand tightened around his mourning star.

    “Shadow Spirits”, corrected Silas. “The Shadow is my religion, even if I gave up my powers a week ago.”

    “Shadow, Light or Darkness. It m-makes no difference… spirits are t-the remains of the dead r-regardless of w-what faith you follow.”

    Godrick looked angry. “O-only necromancers and mediums c-can commune with t-the dead.”

    Silas shrugged. “Not in the Shadow. When a follower of our religion dies, his spirit must find a Shadow temple to be safe and take the choice of going to Oblivion or staying in this realm to guide the apprentices. I’m not a medium, and not a Necromancer anymore.”

    “So you admit that the spirits are the spirits of the dead…”

    “Wait… did you say anymore!?”

    Silas sighed and facepalmed. “Please, don’t be as blind as Grace. I know my mistakes and already accomplished my Redemption by slaying a Necromancer in the Ruins. Ask Bonel, if you don’t trust me. It’s how I met this good lad.” He hoped the young boy wouldn’t be as blind as the Vestal. Damned Light servants and their xenophobia!

    Evelyn followed the group’s trail through the catacombs. She would soon catch up to them. This is my second chance. I have to prove myself. She thought about the last time she was in a dungeon, in the warrens. The trinket she found sparkled so beautifully, almost alive. It made her feel love. It drove her to kill. She could still hear the disturbing sounds from the highwayman as she plunged her dagger into his spine. She felt as though it was only moments ago that she threw the knife into Courcy’s back, and clobbered Baignard over the head with her pickaxe. She still felt the idol’s maddening caress, that somehow soothed her.

    “You’re gone now!” Evelyn cried. “I don’t need you!” As she shouted this, she noticed a flickering light ahead.

    The silver lining seldom lies in sight too plain to see
    But trust our story's end can bring redemption for the pain endured

    “Bonel?” Godrick said pressing his lover for answers.

    Godrick managed to swallow his anger, this man hadn’t earned the right to call him ‘blind.’

    He did however correct Silas on one thing. “What I said has nothing to do with what country you are from, don’t call me xenophobic.”

    (The xenophobia comment was a inner through.)
