Elia, Aegon, and Oberyn had been travelling for two fortnights before they finally got to Myr. According to reliable sources this was where the Golden Company was currently being hired out.
Elia had always wondered why Jon Connington had joined them. He was an honorable man once, even if he looked at her with jealousy in his eyes. Elia had heard rumors about his relationship with Rhaegar, and did not hate him for falling in love with him.
"Everyone who loved Rhaegar at one point or another got hurt in the end." She thought. "My children and I lost a home, Jon Connington his livelihood, Jaeharys a father, and Lyanna her childhood."
Elia didn't know what happened to Lyanna, but she thought of her often. She didn't blame the girl for running away with Rhaegar. He was handsome and the Crown Prince, how could a girl of 14 say no?
"Wherever she is, I hope she is well" she thought as they approached the gates of Myr.
"This is it." Said Oberyn
"It is" Elia replied. Aegon looked nervous.
"Are you okay my son?" She asked him.
"Yeah. I'm just nervous." He replied. Elia wasn't convinced. He had seemed different over the past few days, and was acting as he did after the Fire at Winterfell. The gates opened and Elia braced herself. Oberyn had sent a few soldiers a few days ahead of them, and Elia prayed that they weren't dead. She clutched the bag with the yellow egg close as they entered. Their plan was to find the head of the Golden Company and bribe him with the egg. At least it was until one of Oberyn's soldiers walked up to them. He whispered something in her brother's ear, and Oberyn looked surprised.
"Are you sure?" asked Oberyn
"Saw it myself" replied the soldier
"What is it?" asked Elia
"The man we're looking for gave Harry Strickland an egg as payment for their services." said the soldier. "It's dark shade of green, yet when held up to the light, turns emerald."
"Where in seven hells did Jon Connington get a dragon egg?" asked Oberyn
"We do not know" said the soldier. Just then, Elia spotted a child running away from them. She got Oberyn's attention and pointed out the child. He ordered another soldier to follow the child, then report back to him.
A few hours later the soldier came back.
"They know" Said the soldier before dropping dead.
