I Must Go, Talos Needs Me
Once I was on my way to Windhelm. I got to the stables and dismounted from my horse. Barely as soon as my feet hit the ground she slingshotted through the air and flew off across the horizon.
She was my first horse, the black mare from the Whiterun stables; she had followed me everywhere in-game for more than 100 days, no death and reloads. I fucking loved that horse. So naturally, when she flew off into the air as if grabbed bodily by Meridia herself I was pissed. I saw the direction she flew and I damn well ran after her.
Now, this is where it gets fun. I lost sight of her but, figuring that because she didn’t fly up straight into the sky but flew sideways instead she might land somewhere, I didn’t give up. On a hunch I went to the place that seemed most in line to her trajectory.
Sure enough, A few clicks from the Windhelm Stables, I reached the Talos statue on that cliff - finding her not only alive and well - but walking back towards Windhelm as if nothing had fucking happened.
Oh my god i am laughing so fucking hard!! I love your determination hahaha
