The two companions slowly descended down into the darkness. The old wooden stairs creaked underneath Beors travelling boots as he wagered another step further down. The cellar door was closed shut behind them and everything around them was pitch black. The young Nord tried to make out the interior of the space that they were in - but with no success. Beor swallowed and slowly moved his hand towards the hilt of his sword and gripped it. He hated it when he had no vision.

"What do you see?" Beor hissed at his companion who was a few steps further downards than him.

"Nothing, I don't know. It's too damn dark in here." He heard Balgir whispering back.

They wagered another few step downwards as they continued peering into the darkness.

"Piss!" Balgir cried out as he tripped over something and fell.

Lots of banging, rumbling and grunting was heard as Balgir thundered down the stairs. Beor tensed as the noise suddenly filled the place. With a final thump his friend reached the end and landed on the floor. A moment of silence and then a groan escaped Balgir as he lay there on the ground.

"You alright?" Beor asked his friend in a whisper. Another grunt was heard and Beor could make out Balgir on the floor, who was slowly getting into a sitting position.

"Ugh, yeah... I'm great, thanks.." Balgir grumbled as he got up. ".. What does it look like..." he added in a sarcastic tone.

A flash of Beors white teeth was seen in the dark as he grinned at Balgir. He carefully went down the stairs aswell and joined Balgirs side. Their eyes slowly adjusted to the darkness and they finally started making out their surroundings.

"Well, this is definitely the cellar alright.'' Beor muttered as he pointed to the big barrels aligning the walls.

Balgir chuckled as he went looking for a torch. The two had been on the road for hours and hours without any rest, drink or food. All of their provisions had been stolen by a sly little Wood Elf by the name of Cingor Willowbrook. It all had happened the night before and the two men were desperate to quench their thirst and sate their appetite.

Beor went over to one of the big mead barrels and started studying it. A strike of some flint and tinder was heard and all of the sudden a torch lit up. It was Balgir who had found a torch and managed to light it.

"Haha, now that was what I looking for." the big Nord laughed as he started lighting up the other torches in the basement.

The two had a look around and soon they had uncorked a few bottles of strong fig ale. Hunger and thirst overtook them and they couldn't help but helping themselves to food and lots and lots of ale. It wasn't long for they got piss drunk. They sat there on the floor. Drinking bottle after bottle. They were laughing and reminiscing adventures of theirs in the past. All in all the two were having a great time. As the ale started to flow they got louder and louder and it wasn't long till they heard someone at the cellar door that lead to the actual inn.

Loud banging on the door was heard, and then a muted voice: "Who is down there?!"

Errrrr...They are drinking ale in the mead cellar. Disgraceful!

Otherwise, good read as always, Beor. Looking forward to the next installment.

A great story as always, love the character of Balgir and nice cliff hanger makes me want to see or rather read the reaction of the innkeeper.

Thank you very much @Thorfinn

I appreciate it that you are enjoying these stories!

And to comment on the ale, haha.. Well I wanted to mix things up. They always drink mead and I thought it was probably more interesting if they uncorked a few bottles of fig ale.
