Day 3

Today was odd. Very odd.
I woke up to a loud shaking roar. I jumped out of my bed and left my room. Everyone in the room looked confused. I left the inn and looked around, saw nothing, and went back in.
"What was it?" The bard asked me.
"I don't know." I answered.
I went to Brienda's door and knocked. After a few seconds she opened it,"What's wrong?"
"Nothing," I answered, "Just checking."
She opened the door fully and came out. She gathered her things and I did as well. We said goodbye to the inn keeper and left the building.
"Where should we go?" Brienda asked.
"Head north," I answered, "By the way, how much coin did you spend?"
"Not much," She handed me the sack,"Just bought some bread before sleep."
"Oh, alright."
We headed north and walked across a stone bridge over the fast water. We saw the crashing waves of the waterfall as we went up the swiveling cobble path. As we were traveling we met an injured Argonian.
"Are you alright?" Brienda rushed over to him.
"I need help..." He muttered, he looked sickly.
"He looks sick." I told Brienda.
"I need..." He swallowed,"need..."
A few seconds later he collapsed.
"What was wrong with him?" Brienda yelped.
"I don't know, but let's search him." I suggested.
"He's clearly dead. Whatever he had could help us out."
We looked through his knapsack and found some coin. We also found a ring that lit blue.
"What is that?" Brienda asked.
"Looks like a magical ring." I pondered, holding it.
"Looks valuable."
"Maybe we should sell it whenever we find a place."
I took the ring and placed it in my sack. I moved my hand slowly across his face, shutting his eyes. Whatever happened to him wasn't pretty.
We continued on the cobble path and saw a very very odd thing. Deja vu.
"Hey! Are you alright?" Brienda screamed dashing over to another injured argonain, her tail swinging.
"Huh, is he alive?" I asked.
"Let's move then, it's starting to get a little dark. I hope to find a town before night."
"No more caves." She chuckled, glancing at the dead argonian.
After a few more hours of walking the cobble path we saw giant walls in the distance.
"What's that?" Brienda asked.
"It should be Whiterun." I answered. I had read of Dragonsreach before and the giant tower in the walls seemed to fit the description. Dragonsreach was apparently the trap for dragons in the legends.
We kept walking toward the hold. On our path, we saw a nord with war paint sprawled across her face walk by. She said nothing, and just kept walking.
We saw a few buildings on the outside of Whiterun, but everyone was inside. We approached the gates and were halted by a guard.
"No one comes in without a reason!" He yelled, up top on the walls.
"We're looking for a place to stay for a night," I told him,"Can we?"
"We're gonna search you both! Khajiit can't be trusted."
He lowered the gate and let us in. We were on a slight hump of a stone bridge first in town.
"Alright, let me see that sack, khajiit," He pointed. I gave it to him,"Alright, you seem alright, follow the path until the market and you'll see a big building, The Bannered Mare, you can get a room there."
"Thank you." I took the sack back and we went walking. The people of the town seemed to be heading for sleep. We saw the building and went inside.
"Welcome, need a room?" A nord greeted us from the counter.
"Yes, any available?" Brienda asked.
"We got one for thirty coin."
"Alright, we have enough," I handed her the gold,"Where is it?"
"Up those stairs." She pointed.
We walked and saw a few nords sitting, singing songs.
"Never seen a cat folk before,"A nord said,"Where you two from?"
"Nowhere, really. we just roam." I answered.
"Don't cause trouble." He warned and ended the conversation.
We found the stairs and went up. We saw double doors and opened them...
but... we found ourselves at the entrance to the inn again.
"Welcome, need a room?" The nord greeted us again.
"Yes, any available?" Brienda asked.  She didn't seem confused.
"We got one for thirty coin."
I paused for a moment," Uh, yes. We have it." I handed her the coin. Again.
"Alright, your room'll be up those stairs" She pointed.
We walked and saw the same few nords sitting, singing songs.
"Never seen a cat folk before,"The nord said again,"Where you two from?"
"Nowhere." I answered, quickly and continued to the room.
"Don't cause trouble!" He raised his voice,"We don't need theivin' cats 'round here".
We found the stairs and went up. We saw double doors and opened them. I was nervous.
"J'zeshi? Are you alright?" Brienda asked,"Open your eyes silly, it's just a room."
I opened my eyes and saw a normal room, a double bed, some tables, decoration...
"I need sleep." I said, and went to the bed.
"Wait," She threw my journal at my head, "Every day, remember?"

Time to sleep. Today was too weird.
