Uriel opened the door, hoping to see Eyrmysse. Instead he found Arhyvhynne and admitted the High Witch. "I apologize for the long wait. I know it must have been difficult for you, waiting like this. But I assure you it could not be avoided."

Uriel closed the door and they both moved to the center of the room. "I understand." Actually, he didn't. He felt that she could have at least permitted him to attend the Closing Ceremonies. "Are you able to tell me what's going on now?"

"Yes, I can." Arhyvhynne hesitated, then said with a smile, "There is an old saying among the peasants. 'With the beauty of the moons also lurks the darkness.'"

"Which means?"

"I have some good news but I am afraid I have some unfortunate news as well."

A thousand possibilities rushed through Uriel's mind. "Go on."

"You will not have to go through a mind scan, at least not in the immediate future."


The High Witch moved to the window and gazed at the approaching clouds. "We have received some communication from Bhel'Ehzz, the capital of Khaballe." Arhyvhynne turned around to face him. "King Nherycyn wishes to speak to us concerning the disappearance of the Rune."
