To be falsely accused yet again… What a dismal world we live in.
To your petty indignation however, my intentions were translucent as a bird’s warble all along. You’ve sagged deeper than you fathom, stranger.
Still, I bet all of this this isn’t enough to satiate your queries. You wish to know what happened in the alleyway, am I right? Well heed the truth you longed for! Nothing, if I were to cut straight to the point. Not a single thing worth noting took place there. And if there was a thing, it masterfully eluded my eyes.
There was something that kept prying my mind ever since I bid farewell to that officer in the forest. I shall omit the details not to feed your ignorance even further, but regardless, this thought of mine was what brought me to the deadly alleyway. I know they exist, everyone knows. I had to find them. It was my vocation to find them.
When I passed through, I left the poor bastard wobbling in the corner. As for that deputy figure though, I struggle to recall anyone fitting his constitution. Moreover, no other man was there besides the local.
After my search yielded no results, I returned to the Blackfeather street, right by the alleyway’s gate. I gazed inside slightly, and believe it or not but the scenery remained just as I left it. A slumped man wallowing in self-pity on the ground and not a single soul around to console him. Aside from that, he looked pretty sound and unscathed to me.
Just like our dear Jester, I stood there through the whole night, surrounded by the thick stone of that hopeless city. No man walked by me. No man entered any of the buildings adjacent to the alleyway. Nothing. A peculiar case you have on your hands, stranger. A peculiar case indeed.
Inadvertently, my glance roamed along the empty street. I couldn’t procure even a single feather in the end. I know they exist, everyone knows. But could it all be a lie?
Everything said here adheres the rules of the gameboard. There is no deceit.
Looks like you've been gifted with yet another perfectly sealed alleyway, dear readers.
