"Do you realize how much damage you have caused Dragonborn? We needed new recruits and now they in no condition to fight!"
"I kind of like the stormcloaks better general Tullius, and you told me to get able men! What better way to see if they're able than to shoot then in the knee! Now they can annoy future generations and say, I used to be an adventure like you, until some crazy bitch shot me in the knee with an arrow and made me a guard!"
~earlier at the guard barracks~
"Hello I'm Craig, I took an arrow to the knee! I can join the imperials now right?" Craig said pointing at the arrow lodge in his knee.
"I'm sorry Craig but the imperials have no need for a wounded man, how about becoming a guard instead?"
"But the Dragonborn said!"
"Look Craig" looks behind Craig to see all the men behind him, they all seemed to have arrows in their knees "oh dear Talos" he stood up"ANYONE WITH ARROWS IN THEIR KNEES YOU ARE NOW GAURDS ANYONE WHO DOESN'T STAY IN THE LINE!" The only one left was a kid "sorry kid you are too young!"
"Don't make me fight you!"
"Okay look how about you train the new recruits."
"I'll do that later, I'm the Dragonborn! I have to slay" you trailed of as you spotted a nice looking man. "He's gorgeous!" You said before running off to meet this man.
"Where could he have gone...?" Mumbled the man. "What if something bad happened to him? I would never be able to forgive myself..."
"Excuse me, sir. May I ask what's troubling you?" The man looked towards you.
"Hmm? Oh hello, what is it you need?"
"I noticed something is troubling you, anything I can help you with?"
"My only friend, Feliciano, and I got attacked by bandits on our way here, he took of running. I'm not sure where he could have gone, I looked around for him after I took care of the bandits but I... I couldn't find him. I'm really worried about him."
"I can find him! I am the Dragonborn after all!"
"Your the Dragonborn?"
"I excepted the Dragonborn to be, well, a man"
"Well I'm obviously not now am I? So I guess once I find your friend I will meet you back here right?"
"I'm going with you!"
"Alright! Lets go! Oh by the way my name is -name-! And you are?"
"So how far from solitude did you loose your friend?"
"We were not too far, about an hour worth of walking on foot."
"You don't have a horse?"
"Well I'm not walking, today is your lucky day Ludwig, your getting a horse!"
"What? But horses are 1000 septims! Where am I going to get that kind of money?"
"You act like that is a lot!"
"It is a lot!"
"Well it's not like your paying for one yourself"
"You mean you are?"
"Yeah!" You pulled out your bag with your money and carefully counted out 1000 septims.
"How did you get so many septims?" Ludwig asked, shocked by your wealth.
"Uh... Hard work! Yes hard work can really pay off. We should really be going" you said, trying to avoid what his next question would be. Which would have been, most likely, what kind of hard work.
