Einar was quite surprised to see Riverwood seemed to have frozen in time while he was in that strange tavern talking with women from other worlds and men from the past; it was really easy to think it was all an hallucination, or a dream, if it were not for the missing septims and the pleasing warmth of tipsiness.

Regardless, the Nord made his way to Gerdur's house and collapsed on the guest bed to sleep off his weariness.

Sigrid has noticed a certain amount of...interest from the male stranger. Not surprising, of course, she's a good looking woman.

As they finish loading the rented horse she chuckles softly. "I'm spoken for, you know, so don't get any ideas."

Sigrid chuckles again. "You remind me of Alvor, all those years ago. I suppose young men haven't changed too much, hm?"

Not that Alvor was courting her all that many years ago, Dorthe only looks to be about 10 years old or so.

She smiles at him, eyes sparkling with pleasure. "It's not the years that count, but the miles traveled," she teases. "But the only woman who doesn't appreciate a little flattery is a dead one," she adds with a wink.

Sigrid shakes her head. "That bit of road is past for me, and you have quite a bit of road to cover before dark." She smiles wryly at him. "Or before anyone comes looking for you." He DID come into town with Ralof...

That would be when Svanna, the rented horse, decides for some equine reason to stand on Einar's foot.

>.< Thank goodness Nord boots are sturdy, eh?

Sigrid makes chiding noises at the horse and moves to encourage her to relocate that hoof somewhere other than Einar's foot.

"Not from me," she replies with a snort at his persistence. "Although I think Svanna owes you a kiss of apology for standing on your foot like that," she adds with a grin.

She smiles. "I have a cousin in Solitude, Illdi. It might take someone like you to get her away from that flute of hers for a while."

"A tumble or two with a handsome fellow like you might be good inspiration for a Bard," she adds with a wink.

"Divines watch over you as well," Sigrid says with a smile. "and try not to get in too much trouble."

Aela, one of the aforementioned Companions, chuckles."It means resting your haunches in Whiterun more than I care to, for one."

Then she grins, her fierce smile pulling at the lines of warpaint streaked darkly across her face. "But when it comes time to draw blood, there's no one in Skyrim I'd rather have at my back than my shield siblings."

"Being a Companion means waking up every day knowing that you could die, and having to earn your life by clawing for every breath."

She snorts in derision. "I don't know how those cozy lords manage to drag themselves out of bed every day. Why bother if you're not living?"

"Kodlak says not to worry about it." She frowns a bit. "Imperials, Stormcloaks, I just worry that a bunch of snowberries are out there earning glory while we stay out of it."

"But I will follow the old man's lead. As ever." She might not be happy his decision, but it's clear that she respects his leadership.

Aela gives a bark of a laugh at that. "Aye, battle is the best test of the mettle of men and steel."

"Mayhap Kodlak will have changed his mind by then and we can both find out."

The three Companions bid Einar farewell and head toward the city gates.
