She sat on a tree stump right off the side of the road. No traveler leaving or entering town could miss her. Often she would lure naive wayfarers to her cabin, which was buried some ways into the woods. Any person who had ever been back there never left with the same amount of money they came in with; that is, if they left with any money at all. But of course they never found this out until much later. She saw two cloaked figures trotting up the road on horses. She waited patiently for them to come close enough so that she might make a little more money. The horses stopped right in front of her and one of the figures’ hooded heads turned her way. She knew that they were looking at her, she could feel their gaze but she could not see a face. “Good Evening” the woman on the stump greeted. “Good Evening to you “ a female voice responded “Could you direct us to the Town of Raico, please?” The woman on the Stump smiled. ”It’s about 5 miles up this road. About 2 miles in you’ll come to a fork, take the right path and that’ll take you straight into town. If you ride hard you can make it before nightfall.” The hard shadows that the setting sun cast made it extremely hard to make out the cloaked woman’s face, She squinted attempting to get a better look but to no avail. “Thank you, we shall be on our way then.” “Wait a minute. It would be a bit easier and less dangerous than traveling at night if you’d just stayed in my cabin...Just for tonight...” The cloaked figures exchanged a look. “Alright…” a deep, male voice came from the other She smiled “Okay then… Follow me. My name’s Niyati, by the way” “Nice to meet you, Niyati.” The male replied “Do the two of you have names?” Niyati inquired with a raised eyebrow and a hint of sarcasm in her voice. “Yes” Niyati waited for him to say his name but…he didn’t. It didn’t matter anyway. She didn’t need to know the name of whom she was robbing. I'm a terrible writer but yes there is a story and yes this long thing is just a small excerpt.Its a really long story ...o.o Oh and i didnt have room for horses, sorry.
