Saphorria stepped outside. It was still raining. The cobblestone streets were slick and cold as her claws dug in to maintain her careful walking pace. The storm had churned relentlessly for the last three days giving a dreary cast to the city of Norgolis. Storms like this left little visibility for travelers in the forests outside of the city.
