"That is a good idea" Hollí agreed, seeing her chance. "Still, I don't think we should limit ourselves to just one source. So, Krystia and I"---she pulled the young (and still annoyingly taller) half-elf close---"will go speak to the guards. And the rest of you can speak to the commoners who originally reported the sounds... or you could even try asking a noble if you can stomach it. Agreed? Good!" she said before anyone else could give their input, immediately setting out, dragging young Krystia after her.
It was either a blessing of some divine, or sheer luck that Hollí pulled Krystia away. Auric returned a quick nod to Hollí; he'd remember this in future. With the group officially split, he found the nearest guard and started his investigation.
"Excuse me sir," he started as he approached a guard, "have you heard any strange noises around these parts or seen anything out of the ordinary?"
