The Damned Church

“I am Brother Judas, a traveling Monk, and I came to pray and at the altar and do Adoration. I truly mean you no harm! May I come in and do that?” He asked as he moved a bit closer. He did not need to yell.

He lifted his hands and turned around showing he had his prayer book, wooden beaded Rosary, and his walking staff.

In his left sleeve he did have the lock picks and a dagger, some old habits are hard to get rid of.

As he got closer he called out, “Is the priest here?” He called in a pleasant tone.

He was worried that the tabernacle would be in disrepair.

An old wizen faced peered from one of the window cracks, "The Emperor sent you? Apologizes, give me a moment."

The man disappeared behind the shadows, Judas could hear the front door being unlocked, multiple clicks and clacks sounded, before the door finally cracked open. Father Andreas stepped out, a dagger in hand, he checked around the church before looking at the man before him. "Apologies brother for the state we are in, please come in." The old priest welcomed the man in, once the monk enter the church, he could see the state of the church inside wasn't as bad on the outside. It seemed that this priest was fortifying the place, to make sure nothing could enter it, the question was what was trying to break in?
