The sorrow she felt lingering in the air, and the Gods speaking in such hushed voices that she only caught pieces of were enough to know his Fate was cruel.

Too cruel, for someone so kind.

He smiled at her, as if knowing what they were saying.

Can you hear them? Mei wondered.

She closed her eyes, opening them to see a flash of yellow vanish into the forest.
