Displeasing the master

Liliana gazed only a second longer before reaching a hand and teleporting both women away. She memorized everything she saw at that moment. She would remember this day.

It was Gelt who greeted her. He arrived as the snap of reality reverberated around the room. He paused in the doorway, teleportation circle slowly shedding its glow. His gaze was heavy upon the two. "You have returned and yet I see you in such a state. Speak."

Lenora spat out a large proportion of blood, she wouldn't allow Liliana to take the blame. "I failed you. I was near seconds away from completing my mission, then Draken and a horde of demons arrived. They captured me, and tormented me. By the point Liliana arrived, the enemy had rallied up. Draken led the charge, he fought with Liliana. The kragan are slaughtered, we are what remain." She crawled her way towards him, her bloodied body dragging across the flood, smearing her blood.

"It was my fault we failed, I accept my punishment. It was due to me that Liliana and the Kragan failed. Just get it over with." She fell to her side, splattering more blood on the floor. Nearly a few feet from Gelt, "I have only one last piece of information before you destroy me, the nobles at Soldor's Bastion saw Draken's victory, they wish to make him king." Her wounds were healing, but it looked like she wouldn't be healed until the end of the day, "That's all I have my lord. Please do what you wish now I have told you about this information." She laid her head on the floor, breathing slowly.
