Milliways, Einar decided, was much superior to the Bannered Mare.

Oh, Whiterun's inn was a fine place, but could not really compete with a magical bar's facilities. Regardless, he had slept well, and now it was time to break fast and take to the road before the sun was too high.

As Einar comes down the stairs, someone is waiting for him. His Housecarl Lydia, to be precise, whom he has apparently forgotten about?

Lydia nods a greeting. "Honor to you, my Thane." She's a bit in awe of him, but she's doing her best to conceal it. It's hard, suddenly being a Housecarl to the DRAGONBORN of all people.

"Of course, my Thane," Lydia replies, moving over to the table.

The Dragonborn seems on edge about something, which puzzles her. Surely dealing with one Housecarl is nothing to a man who devours the souls of dragons!

Lydia nods. "I suspected as much, my Thane." Since all of Skyrim heard the Greybeards' call, it wasn't exactly a difficult deduction. "I am already packed for the journey."

Lydia frowns back at him. Does he doubt her courage, her honor? "I am your sword and your shield, my Thane. Whether it be against men, beasts, or dragons."

She pauses, gathering her thoughts to address someone who is her social superior. "The world holds a thousand deaths, my Thane. I would fight to save my homeland at your side, whatever the price of that may be. I know that I may die in your service, but I will go to Sovngarde with my head held high."

Lydia smiles, also amused. "A hero is defined by his deeds, not his birth. You survived, my Thane. You slew a dragon, a beast out of legend, and took its power for your own. The Greybeards called for YOU, as they have not called for anyone since Tiber Septim."

"A little rudeness can be forgiven, my Thane," Lydia replies with a twinkle in her eye. "Perhaps we will get the chance to apologize to the dragon in person." Lydia is joking too.

Lydia nods. "I as well, my Thane."

She makes a face at the mention of mosquitoes. "They are voracious yes, even to getting underneath one's armor."

Time to get on the road.

Lydia acknowledges his statement with a nod. Now that her first impression is made, she can afford to wear something lighter.

"I will meet you there shortly, my Thane."

Lydia is waiting for him at the gate in more sensible traveling gear than her heavy armor of earlier.

She smiles when she sees him, eager to get on the road.

Lydia keeps pace with him. "I'm not sure I'd count on luck in this age, but the towers sound worth a visit."

And if there ARE bandits, well, they can do a bit of community service.

"Sensible of you," Lydia replies with a grin. "Walls to cut the wind and snow and cut down on ways that trouble can approach in the night."

Her stride isn't quite as practiced as his, but it's clear she's traveled on foot before.

"Aye, plenty of it," Lydia agrees, looking toward the mountain. "I've never made the pilgrimage there before, have you?"

"Well then, we'll both get the pilgrimage done and won't have to worry about trying it later when we're older and greyer," she teases.

Lydia flushes a little. "It seemed to...bother you when I addressed you formally earlier."
