13th day of Rain's Hand, Nightingale hall.
The moment has come. Caelya and Ingrid meet the Daedric Princess of Darkness, Nocturnal...
Caelya: ''Why have you brought us here?''
Ingrid: ''Let me go, or I will kill you... I have no fear of you and your little birds...!''
Nocturnal: ''Fine, we are finally complete now... You two are here, because this world is in big danger. The Imperials know from the Skeleton Key and its power.
Ingrid: ''I heard from this Key... It's just a simple unbreakable lockpick... What's so dangerous about it...?!''
Nocturnal: ''It's not only a simple lockpick, like you call it..., it is much more. This Key keeps Ebonmere, the well of luck, open. Without it, the well will close and no luck will flow to this world anymore.
Caelya: ''Why you took me and Ingrid? I'm an Imperial General... I could betray you!''
Nocturnal: ''Look into your heart Caelya... You belong to us. You got Julia's blood in your veins. All this here, the Thieves Guild is a part of Julia's work. Do you really want to let us down?''
Ingrid: ''Oohhh, great words... And what about me... Why am I here, oh great Princess?''
Nocturnal: ''You are a fearless warrior, and you know this land better than anyone of us... You fought for freedom, but when the Skeleton Key once is in the hands of the enemy, there never will be freedom anymore.''
Ingrid: ''And why are you so sure, that I'll not take this thing and bring it to the Stormcloaks?''
Nocturnal: ''You are an honorable warrior and not a betrayer...''
Ingrid: ''Yes that's true... You've convinced me... I'll help you, but I'm not a filthy thieve! I love my country and I'll do anything to kill Imperials...'' *looks to Caelya*
Nocturnal: ''What about you, Caelya?''
Caelya: ''All right, I'll help you! You know, that I'm a Dovahkiin. I'll never use my power to hurt or kill someone... I have a lot of friends in the Legion. I don't want to hurt them...
Ingrid: ''I'll do it for you...'' *laughs*
Nocturnal: ''To test your loyalty, I'll send you two out for a first quest. Bring me a Dragon-Egg!''
Caelya: 'What, together with her? No way!''
Ingrid: ''I guess one of us will not return!'' *Looks again to Caelya*
Nocturnal: ''I give you two days... Good luck, my new Nightingales...''
