Rahka, Leya and Vule stared at the blue haired gnome across the fire. They were still in the crypt hallways, it was very cramped but the trio still kept their distance. Ruth was about three feet high with pale freckled skin. Her hair was blue and stuck out in all angles as if it has not been brushed ever. Her pink dyed cat purred in her lap as she stroke it. She wore brown roughspun breeches, soft shoes and a green dyed tunic.
Vule stayed silent as he studied the gnome. Rashka was rather angry that she would interrupt his sleep. Leya did all of the talking.
“Who are you?” asked Leya, she brushed a lock of blonde hair past and behind her pointed ear. Ruth seemed eager to answer, “Ruth Timble is my name and this is my cat John he is my familiar and I can do magic and..” Leya jumped in, it was obvious that Ruth could speak without pause. “Okay, can you please slow down, Rash here isnt that bright” she gestured to the orc to her right. Vule smirked. Leya continued “What do you want?.”
Ruth’s eyes brightened “Rashka… such a nice name…” she stared at Rashka, and he shifted under her gaze. “I want to join your group, I can be oh so helpful. Me and John get so lonely.” John only opened an eye at his name, the green one.
Vule ran his tattooed hand through his brown hair, his purple eyes deep in thought. “You said you can do magic”, his voice was smoothe as silk, the words glided to the ears of the others. “Yes, yes I can, I am not a wizard. I am a sorcerer, but I am very good. I promise.” Ruth spoke not to Vule, who asked the question, but to all of them. Vules gaze never shifted.
Rashka spoke up, his voice was tired and irritated. “I have no problem with you coming with us. But dont sit on my chest again.” Ruth only smiled, “I cant promise anything Rashka”.
“Then its agreed”, said Leya. “Welcome to the party.”
Ruth clapped her hands excitedly “Yay, we are going to hae so much fun together!” As they all settled down to sleep, John curled up under Ruth’s arm. Rashka curled up, to make sure nothing can climb on top of his chest. Vule fell asleep standing, as he always does and Leya fell asleep content with herself.
