The younger, daughter of the house, was 14 at the time of her death, apparently by poisoning, a few days prior. However, she lies here, with a dagger wound through the stomach, and enough blood to indicate she was alive when stabbed. Her hands are on the hilt of the blade. Lying next to her is a young man, son of a rival house, whose face is ashen, and whose breath smells of almonds. A small bottle lies on the floor nearby.
(Gotta throw one out there for the Bard...)
Not gonna miss the young man, he was fat and scant of breath, now he's fat and really scant of breath.
91.) The two bodies are entwined as lovers, but tight ligatures upon their limbs and about their throats show that the embrace was not of their own choosing.
92.) The corpse is emaciated, and pale - seated in the lotus position, hands lying palms up. Beside the body are an untouched loaf of bread and a bottle of sweet wine, its stopper coated with an unbroken wax seal. A gentle smile adorns the cadaver's face, and a faint odor of uncooked dough rises from the flesh.
93.) The richly dressed body rests in a coffin, laid across two sawhorses. silver pieces weight down the eyelids and the odor of the corpse is masked with floral scents. Powdery makeup breaths false life into the face, while the smile is maintained with deft stitches at the corners of its mouth. Rings adorn two of the fingers, and a thin band of gold is placed above slightly pointed ears. The lid of the coffin rests against the wall, and it is obvious that there was intended to be a name plaque upon its surface, but only four freshly drilled holes remain.
