"I showed Tharaja how I created the tracking spell. She doesn’t know Regina, so there were no way she could initiate the spell with thoughts of her. But she was able to light it with a blue flame that kept it afloat. I’m so glad to have met someone who didn’t judge me, even after admitting I betrayed my best friend. I don’t think I’m ready to tell her I turned her into a direloom and that I’m inhibiting Regina’s body, but maybe that’s something I won’t ever tell anyone.
I remember how bright the sun bounced off of it, how much the forest around us glimmered as the sun rose. It’s so funny, how something so deadly also happens to be warm and beautiful all the same.
I’ve been back home for a month or so now since the festival. It seems so… lonely here now that I’ve experienced the company of so many others.
Maybe I’ll visit Tharaja again. But Sensei wants me to catch up on the training I missed while I was gone. I don’t know if I’ll be able to go out for some time.
