(Placing his hand on K’ain’s shoulder)
Thank you for telling me this. I thought perhaps that you just didn’t want to share too much about yourself to us…to me…but I see now how difficult the words were to begin with. I know there is still a lot to learn about each other, but I believe fighting for the Children will further tear down those barriers between us.
I understand your reticence about entering the monastery. When spreading the news about the Mapmaker to these people, I, myself, have been finding words escaping me. Particularly knowing our part in his scheme to be released.
(Thinking of the children)
But if there may be clues to any weaknesses of the Mapmaker or, powerful relics or weapons that we may wield in our fight against him, this journey will be worth it…for Arboraas…for all four of them.
(Smiling, blinking rapidly to fight back a tear)
