If she were to defeat Alduin she had to ground him to do so, which is what she intended to do. As soon as the dragon flew close enough Aurida used the Dragonrend shout, directly hitting Alduin as it forced him to land, causing him to slam down with a tremendous force that shook the ground. This gave Aurida the chance to attack as she ran towards the downed dragon, having to act quickly before Alduin could become airborne again.
He saw the Khajiit running towards him and growled. "How dare you hold the title of Dovahkiin! You are nothing more than a pitiful abomination that should be put out of its misery!" he roared, letting out a pillar of fire from his jaws right at the Dovakhiin.
Aurida barely had time to dodge the stream of fire, quickly tucking and rolling to the right to avoid being burned to ashes. The heat of the fire was intense and it even singed her fur and scales of her tail, causing her to wince from the burning pain she felt. She glared at Alduin and gave a snarl as she ran at him, swords raised as she moved around him and swung her blades at the dragon, the metal slashing at the dragon's leathery armored hide. Alduin barely flinched and gave a wicked chuckle before knocking Aurida back with one swift motion of his tail.
Needless to say it knocked the wind out of her as she landed a few feet away on her back, letting out a cough of pain. /Damned dragon! I will kill you and make a nice chest plate with your hide!/ She took the time to notice that her Dragonrend shout was beginning to wear off. The last thing she wanted was to give Alduin the advantage of flight to use against her. Aurida quickly stood up and sheathed her swords, readying herself to use the Dragonrend shout again.
Alduin noticed this as well and glared at the Khajiit, his red eyes watching her. He could tell she was about to use a shout, no doubt the same one she had used to force him to land. He reared his head and let out his Unrelenting Force shout just at the same time Aurida released her Dragonrend shout. Both shouts collided with each other, causing the ground to shake from the force of the collision.
Unfortunately it did not end there.
The aura from both shouts swirled around in the air until they became one, creating a small black dot in the center from the swirls of color. Both Aurida and Alduin stared at the small black dot in fascination, both questioning on what it was and why it was there. The dot soon began to grow with each second, the wind picking up as it was pulled towards the hole.
It was similar to a conjuration portal, but instead of something stepping out of the portal it seemed to be pulling everything towards it instead. Aurida took a few steps back as the pulling force from the portal slowly grew stronger and stronger as the portal continued to become bigger. The sky above became dark and cloudy as bolts of lightning struck the ground around the portal, making it larger and larger. Aurida took off running, seeking shelter behind a nice sized boulder as Alduin tried to fly away from the mysterious portal.
Unfortunately for the dragon it was too late for him as he was pulled towards the black swirling portal, the force stronger than him as he was slowly pulled into the portal, disappearing as he let out one final roar. However the portal did not stop there as everything around it was continued to be pulled in, including the boulder Aurida was hiding behind. Once that was gone the Khajiit was quickly pulled in, being lifted off the ground as she disappeared into complete darkness.
The portal then disappeared as if nothing had happened, leaving nothing behind.
A sudden light pierced her vision as Aurida regained consciousness, feeling as though she had been asleep forever. She struggled to her feet, feeling a bit nauseous and woozy as she stood up. The Khajiit quickly checked over herself, making sure she had not lost any limbs from what ever she had been in. So far everything was okay and she still had her weapons and armor, although she caught a glimpse of her half-torn cowl of her Nightingale armor, making her growl. /It'll take me forever to fix that./
She turned around.
Her attention was drawn to the blade of a golden scepter with a blue glowing orb in the center where the blade met with the hilt of the scepter. The blade was sharp and dangerously close to her chest just over her heart. The owner of the scepter was a man with a young face and black hair that reached his shoulders. His eyes were a bright green and his clothes were green and black with a bit of gold in some areas. /Is that armor? Very interesting design. I think I'll take that after I kill him./
Unfortunately he wasn't alone.
There were four others as well, one of them wore a black patch over his eye and didn't seem too happy of the man with the scepter, holding some type metal satchel in his hand that he seemed very protective of. Aurida was unsure of who was friend and who was foe, but her thoughts were interrupted when the man with the eye patch fell to the floor, dropping the metal satchel. Something about the satchel seemed important, she could feel it and she wanted to know what was hidden inside it.
Without hesitation the Khajiit kicked the man holding the scepter right in his chest before taking off, grabbing the satchel as she ran past it. Of course she did not get very far after feeling a sudden burst of pain in her back and in her leg, causing her to stumble and fall to the floor. Despite the immense pain she felt Aurida managed to get up and continue running, using her Whirlwind Sprint to distance herself with her attackers.
Only to be met with more enemies in front of her.
The next several seconds were absolute chaos.
Bullets whizzed past Aurida as she continued running, heading down a long concrete tunnel that hopefully would lead her out of this place. More pain erupted from her back and legs but she did not dare stop running. She did not have enough arrows to take out all of these enemies and whatever kind of weapons they were using outmatched her swords and daggers. Growling in frustration Aurida halted in the middle of the tunnel, raising her hand in front of her as she used what magic she knew to summon the skeletal horse known as Arvak. Without further hesitation Aurida quickly mounted Arvak and held on as the skeletal horse galloped out of the tunnel.
The tunnel itself seemed to stretch on forever as Arvak galloped fast until Aurida could finally see a way out of the tunnel, smiling and sighing in relief as they finally exited out into the night. But there was a problem. Aurida did not see any landmarks of Skyrim or any plant and wildlife that lived in Skyrim. /Where am I?/ It would be a question to answer later as Arvak continued to gallop through the barren land, his eyes and mane glowing brightly in the darkness of the night.
Her thoughts were interrupted when she glanced behind her in time to see a large explosion of the strange building she had been inside of. Her night vision was very helpful when she noticed a large and strange creature flying in the sky. /Is that a dragon? Maybe the dragons are different here...where ever 'here' is./ Her attention was drawn to the large creatures traveling on the ground, carrying several people, some that Aurida could recognize.
Steering Arvak in the opposite direction Aurida took the time to take a look at her new prize, her hands feeling the metal briefcase for a way to open it. Her claws traced the edges until they stopped near the handle, her eyes narrowing as she observed the locks on the case while grinning. /Nothing the Skeleton Key can't open./ Aurida reached into her satchel and felt around until her hand grabbed hold of the Skeleton Key, pulling it out as she went to work on picking the locks of the case.
It took a few minutes for the Khajiit to finally open the case, revealing a blue glowing square nestled in the center. /This is definitely mine now./ If there was anything Aurida enjoyed more in life it was stealing anything shiny or anything she deemed interesting, and this thing was certainly both. She could feel a strange source of power surging from the cube as she held it before putting it in her satchel. The Khajiit closed the metal briefcase and tossed it behind her, no longer needing it. /Now to return home and rest. I could use some mead right about now./
Unfortunately for Aurida there would be no rest for her.
The vehicle that Loki resided in was following after Aurida, catching up very quickly.
