Revel arrives only moments after Time departed, appearing magically before me, making me yelp.
“Where are we going?” I question, having to use all my effort to speak, suddenly all my energy and desire to get this over with now having since vanished. Time has left me with a lot to think about. I can hardly believe I’m having to rethink my moral choices upon Time’s recommendation...He’s not exactly an outstanding citizen.
“We are meeting in a neutral place,” Revel explains. We are meeting the virtue already, hardly giving me enough time to come up with an alternative plan in time. “Micah thinks you’re looking into his head to help him.”
¬LuellaHis eyes sweep over me, the silver of his irises turned milky under the moonlight, an ethereal hint to it.I’m ready for him to be angry at me, to wonder what I’m doing out here, in the middle of nowhere in almost complete darkness. He doesn’t look angry, as he looks over me intently, likely looking to ensure I’m safe and okay. I’m perfectly healthy, yet utterly mortified that Thought found me...I shouldn’t be surprised, I mean he is far more powerful than me, and possibly knew all along.“Don’t be mad at me,” I say carefully, holding my hands up defensively.

Eyes do linger on Thought though, even if he has a hood pulled over his head, trying to hide his face from everyone.
¬LuellaI stare out into the distance, watching the dark clouds shift and crawl along the sky, seeing the shadows tinting the treetop.“It feels strange being home,” I mutter, glancing up at Thought, who stands behind me. We made it back only today from Karma’s Province. Everything feels eerily quiet here, almost peacefully if I didn’t know what had to happen to make it that way. We haven't heard from Stace, which I can’t decide is a good thing or not. He is still a threat, but for now, we might be okay. “I’m glad you consider this your home now, despite everything that has happened here,” Thought admits, smiling down at me.
