Kore: You've seen those eyes, Di.

Kore: They know all my weaknesses. They make my back ache and my face sting.

Narration (Kore): My fingers hurt so badly. All my blood turns to fire inside.

Kore: He's going to say that there's nothing left to debate. No arguments left to be made.

Narration (Kore): And he's so close to being right...I don't want to think about it. If I did...

Di: Well, even better! Cut the fluff and get right down to looking awesome! I've been studying some really impressive grimoire spells to cast...

Di: You could both just go pow! smash! everyone will be hoping for it, you know!

Narration (Kore): Why does he treat them so well when all I can feel from them is...negative? I need a reason to face him again. He's trying so hard...

Narration (Kore): I should ignore him, everything. I don't have to give in to this. I should just leave. Walk away and never look back. He might even let me.

Narration (Kore): And the star in my mind flares crimson in the distance.

Di: O my dear, you can face him again! You're so strong!

Narration (Kore): She jumps to the wrong conclusion.

Di: Your face might not even scar! You could bring true liberation to everyone on the island! Do you know how historic and important that would be?

Kore: It hurts to smile. Fortunately there's not much to smile about today.

Narration (Kore): I remembered something important last night.

Narration (Kore): By now Barazza is on his way, and I'll have to be ready when he gets here. I'm not leaving without the bodyguard.

Narration (Kore): The main thing is to say those few words to Ves Xander....le mot juste...

Narration (Kore): and when I leave give myself some reason not to forget I ever met him. He doesn't deserve to be forgotten.

Author Notes:

Yeah...that ring.
