The plagued city of West Ardougne!

While making my rounds in East Ardougne visiting friends and such, I stopped on the side of the road to admire such a beautiful garden. Sunflowers and other different flowers could be seen opening up as the sun slowly began to rise over the city. Suddenly, an older looking bald bloke approached me from the side of his home.

"Well, hello there adventurer. It's a lovely garden isn't it?" the man asked, looking quite pleased with himself. "Yes, it's certainly lovely. I would hate for anything to happen to it."

The man's mood quickly changed just as I had said that. He started staring at the ground, almost ready to cry.

"Why are you suddenly sad sir? Is everything alright? I asked calmly.

"I have a daughter named Elena, she went off to research this "plague" that she thinks is happening. It's been days and she should have at least returned by now or at least wrote a letter. Sadly, we haven't received anything. My wife and I are terrible worried about her" the man said as tears streamed quickly down his face. I hugged the man tightly to comfort him, which seemed to help slightly. It was at that moment that I had an excellent idea pop into my head.

"I shall help you in any way possible!" I said reassuringly. Suddenly, the man's wife came running out of the house crying tears of joy as she hugged me. "Man, you people must be all about hugging huh?" I said to myself smirking.

"Please allow me to introduce ourselves. I'm Edmond, and this is my wife, Alrena. We feel so blessed that you are willing to help us. See, because of the plague we are unable to walk through the entrance of West Ardougne. It's quite heavily guarded, even as we speak. I had an idea just to dig up the garden and use a secret entrance to get into the city." Edmond explained.

I nodded in agreement as I found a spade lying against the house and began helping Edmond dig up the garden. Within minutes, we dug deep enough to find a rough patch of earth that could be slid down to access a tunnel below. With solid footing, we managed to climb down.

The tunnel turned out to be a timeworn sewer that was built many years ago. Edmond was quick to light a lantern so we could expand our sight. Along the end of the sewer was a pipe that seemed to lead to West Ardogune. Upon further inspection, it appeared that a large grill was covering it. I attempted to pull it off but had no luck.

"Hmm Devon, I think we could both use our strength to pull this off. Do you have a rope?" Edmond inquired. I reached inside my bag and dug around until I found a rope. I tied it to the grill and passed Edmond a piece of the rope. With a mighty tug, the grill instantly came off, flying to the other side of the sewer.

"Thanks for the help Edmond. I should be good to go from here. You would think with my incredible strength level I would have been able to pull that off myself." I said jokingly. Edmond shook my hand and laughed as he traveled back up the rough earth and went out of sight. I turned around and took a deep breath as I ventured inside the dark pipe to West Ardogune.



Within seconds, daylight was visible to me as I inched my way closer to the end of the pipe. Another grill sealed the exit to the pipe as well but thankfully this one came off with ease as I lifted it up and pushed it to the side.

As I exited the pipe, the community was an entirely different feeling. People wore gas masks to protect themselves and their children. I stood and examined each I saw carefully. My eyes quickly lit up as one person I saw was human. I ran over and tapped him on the shoulder.

"Pardon me, sir; I hope you will be able to help me. I am looking for a woman by the name of Elena. Have you any idea of where she may be?" The man shook his head. "Do you at least have a picture of the lady? That might help you know...oh wait, I see a picture attached to your bag. I saw this woman before; she was taken to a small house just south of here." the man said.

I patted his back in thanks as I made my way south towards a group of smaller homes. Along majority of the doors were marked with a big black "x" which meant the plague was already inside. Two guards stood outside one home in particular, which I found very suspicious. I found an empty barrel nearby and managed to kick the bottom off. With precision timing, I jumped out of the barrel and hurried my way inside the home.

Many crates and barrels were scattered along the floor of the home. I saw the doorknob slowly turning on the other door, so I quickly dashed down the stairs and into the basement.

I bent over trying to catch my breath from racing down the stairs so fast. My heart was already racing like crazy but what I saw next made it race even more. A large jail cell with a woman inside, which matched the picture attached to my bag. Looking quite startled at the sight of another human, the woman rose up and firmly grasped the metal bars of the cell.

"Hello sir, please help me! Some strange beings kidnaped me. My parents must be worried sick of me. Can you try and get me out of here? I saw the guards hide the key somewhere in this room" the woman pleaded.

I quickly looked around the room before I began opening the few barrels and crates, frantically searching for the key. Underneath the stairs was my last place to check. As I walked over, I could feel a loose board underneath. I bent over and tore off the board as a small key was the only object to be seen. I grabbed it and opened the jail cell.

"Thank for so much for letting me out of here! I will be sure to let my parents know I am safe as I'm headed back home right now. Please come and see my father to be rewarded" Elana said as she hugged me tightly and kissed me on the cheek. I smiled back and said "I don't need any reward. I was more than happy to help! Well, it's time I took my leave. I shall come check with you soon regarding your plague research."
THE END!


Author notes:

Hi, all! This week I decided to begin the elf series with a story based on Plague City. Granted, this is not the entire quest, but just small bits that I felt were important.

I am doing an exclusive Christmas story this coming Sunday so make sure you keep your eyes peeled for that one.

Until next time friends!
