Ruilsara Moonheart huddles in the back of a cart heading for Nandine. The traces of the many tears she has shed are clearly visible on her pale face as she sits by the covered body of Zemepatis, one hand gripping his shield, the other clutching on her lap a container holding shattered diamonds.

Images flit through Rilla's mind of Zemepatis; courageous, devoted, stubborn, and at times, one of the most frustrating people she had ever known, he remained in her heart one of the best friends she could ever have hoped to have. His steadfastness, dogged persistence and common sense had helped her on more occasions than she could name.

He should have been sad, but he was not. He was empty. Reuben walked beside the cart that Rilla sat in, carrying the body of Zemepatis. He reached over and took the box from her, opening it and calling forth the magics of the feywilds - repairing and healing the body of his first 'friend.' Once the body is whole again, he looks over to Rilla.

"We have his body back. And now you can say goodbye."

Reuben thought he should say goodbye too. But why?


"I'm not going to let them hurt you..."

"If I should fall, take this..."

"A new technique of fighting, that is..."


Memories of the diamond elf flooded through him, the first person to ever give him something and not ask for something in return.

Reuben knew that if he still had a soul, he would be sad for Zemepatis.

Zemepatis was lovely...We were going to Nomad together, and he tought me lots of spells, and he made Rilla happy. We'll miss him. Sorry you're dead, Zem...

I wish I could have gotten to know you better. You were a great man, and did well in your duty as a protector of the people.
