Mountain of Ordeals - Calling Winds
Bleak ENB by trustinall
Once exiting the monastery the Greybeards shouted to the sky calming the winds and snow fall and the Sun shined on the gathering grounds where Julien was to learn more about the Dragon's language.
"Come Young Dovahkiin, Borri shall teach you the word of Wind, the way of the Whirlwind Sprint."
Borri's silence was broken by a soft whisper to the ground "Wuld . . ." Like before the word glowed on the ground written in a foreign language that Julien somehow recognized despite never seeing it or studying it...
"We'll wait and stay out of the way, I am here if you need me though," Stenvar attempted to comfort Julien.
"Go on, I want to see what this new word will do," Marcurio was fascinated by this skill.
Slowly stepping closer to the alit words on the ground, with each step he could hear the chanting of the words in his head again. He could feel the power encircle him and fill him with the knowledge.
Borri offered a dragon soul for Julien to test his new skill with as well. The test was a little different this time. The shout would call for winds send you forward along the path ahead so to test the speed Julien was to rush through a gate before it closed. Stenvar and Marcurio stood behind for support.
Borri demonstrated first with his shout.
The old mans sealed lips parted and bellowed "Wuld, Nah, Kest." Before Julien could even react Borri was flying by the gates, going so fast he worried Borri couldn't stop.
"Heh, the old man can certainly move," Marcurio chuckled.
"Now, your turn."
Taking a deep breath, the priest called to the winds just as Borri did.
He was carried by the winds and sped across the snow covered ground right through the closing gate. He hadn't even realized he completed his test, everything was so fast. Julien was left slightly confused.
Arngier, congratulated Julien for his feat and understanding of the dragon's voice, the other greybeards quickly returned to their meditation inside the temple. The test was done, trials complete and the ordeal was dealt with. The wise elder sent the traveling trio on another quest but their short visit to High Hrothgar was over.
"Hmmhmm, yes we are."
"Good, I could really go for some ale and a nice meal."
"Let's head back and stay in Ivarstead for the night."
"That's it? We're done? We didn't find any treasure and you learned how to yell... Ugh, waste of time, my talents can be used elsewhere. Let's leave this dull place."
Ignoring Marcurio's gripes, Julien and Stenvar made their way to the door and were headed for Ivarstead and a well deserved rest.
