Baker's Dozen: From the Cauldron and into the Fire

Or how to properly salt and cook Mountain Lion, Wolf, and Weasels

Vesnah awoke with sunlight pouring into the room, She turned over to see Black Walder snoring in the bed next to her. She arose dressed in riding clothes and walked downstairs with a pounding in her head. The dining hall was being clean by retainers of Houses Frey and Baker. Ser Steveron Frey and Lord Tristifer Baker Sat at the head table breaking their fast over bread and milk. Vesnah sat at her usual seat and Lyanna “Snow” and Kara were soon to follow. Wotan Spoke to his eldist daughter and soon Aigne Rivers and Shiel Rivers brought Ser Jonathan Baker to their usual seats. Ser Steveron rose cleared his throat “The Lord Paramount Hoster Tully has commanded my father Lord Walder Frey to end a squable between Lord Dunstan Tullyson and Lord Harald Dulver. Lord Walder Says that since Lord Dunstan and the heir of House Baker both have Frey Mothers and Lord Dunstan’s grandmother was Lord Tristifer’s]] elder sister. My lord Father thinks those facts make ”/wikis/house-baker" class=“wiki-page-link”> House Baker is posed to help settle this dispute." with that Ser Steveron sat back down. Lord Tristifer cleared his throught and said " I will send my son and heir Ser Jonathan Baker, his shadows, Lyanna “Snow”, and my houses’ personal mason Vesnah to The Mountain’s reach to maintain the King’s peace. That is my command and I shall not hear it questioned, You will leave with the hour." within an hour Ser Jonathan, Lyanna Snow, Vesnah, Shiel & Aigne Rivers were on the King’s road, Lyanna was on a borrowed Frey horse, Ser Jonathan riding Ballbreaker, Vesnah on her own horse and Ser Jonathan’s retainers on the wagon. On the wagon Vesnah brought Salt, tea leaves, Cinammon, Silk, three Sheep, and some pieces of elm.

The party travelled along the King’s Road passing open plains, rolling hills, and sparse woods before making camp by the road. That night Lyanna dreamt that she was running through fields, then she smelt it prey. Lyanna bounded off on all fours towards the smell, then she saw the rabbit with its brown and grey fur, it looked up too late the pink nose twitching as the plump rabbit started to run Lyanna grabbed it in her powerful snout and gave a mighty shake, and audible crack was heard as the rabbit’s body went limp, its nose still twitching. Vesnah was on watch consulting star charts when she looked over and saw Kara striding back with a half eaten Rabbit in its jaws. As dawn approached Vesnah thought that she should get something other the jerky and bread that had been packed. and so she grabbed her hunting bow and for about a half an hour she tracked paw prints of a pack of weasels. then she came across it, a dying mountain lion and wolf barely breathing with half a dozen weasels dead around the animals, an older looking weasel snarled at Vesnah. She pinned the elder weasel with an arrow through the skull. Vesnah for a moment dreaded what ill omen this scene could portend as the remaining weasels fled. She laughed thinking what a fool she would seem as she tied and then hoisted up the dead weasles, mountain lion, and wolf and carried them back to camp.

The next day was similarly uneventful as the part left the King’s road to head to the Mountain’s Reach. The party camped were a grove once stood, with the same three taking watch. Ser Jonathan Baker slept in his tent while Kara and Lyanna drifted off resting their heads on a white stump. Lyanna Karstark found herself walking down a hallway with no sources of light but illuminated none the less, as she walked she heard singers to each side, small people with golden eyes with cat like pupils and green skin. Lyanna continued down the hallway when the hallway stopped she saw two people conversing in a language that sounded familiar yet she did not know. Another one of the singers stood before the weirwood throne, the singer reminded Lyanna of someone she knew. It was then that she saw him, a man in black armor with a white dragon on it roots growing through out him “How have come here dreamer?” Lyanna was startled when the corpse on the Weirwood throne spoke to her, " I… I… I don’t know I was sleeping then I found myself here and" Lyanna silenced herself when the thing on the throne rose its hand “now child you must fly.” the roots beneath Lyanna open up and she began to fall. Blackness and an uncountable amount of Stars shone above her with Planetos seeming like some great disk beneath her. As the ground came rushing up to great her she saw a great many things, in Sunspear a man in a chair talking with a man who looked his brother and a man who looked like a loving grandfather dressed like a Maester without his chain, In King’s Landing Lyanna saw a man with a falcon and moon on hid doublet pouring over a ponderous tome in a tower a man with golden hair laid with a woman who also had golden hair, further up the King’s Road Lyanna saw her party’s camp, Vesnah Shiel Kara and herself were asleep with Aigne eating some of the left over weasel, even further north Lyanna saw her father praying in the Karhold Godswood in front of the weirwood tree, Her gaze rested upon where she would fall far north of the wall upon spikes with hundreds of fellow dreamers. Lyanna desperately flapped her arms screaming as the ground flew closer and closer, “that’s no way to fly.” Squawked a Raven next to her. “I AM NOT FLYING I’M FALLINGLyanna yelled desperately flapping her arms even harder. The Raven began to peck at her shoulder blades causing her Karstark cape to begin to fray apart. “here is where you fly or you die” the three eyed raven cawed. Lyanna focused on the pain in her back and pulled up. the wind rose beneath her as Lyanna Karstark flew towards the white sun against a black starless sky. Lyanna sprung up covered in sweat as everyone else was beginning to break down camp.

On the road Vesnah looked up from the bow she was finishing seeing Lyanna Snow talking with Shiel Rivers. about the dream she had earlier, she jessed that maybe it was the wine.
