Her song comes to an end.

Kalasin steps onto the railing, feeling for the last time, the sun on her face, the wind in her hair. She looks at the lowlanders, staring at her in shock and uncertainty. And then at her own people, watching silently from the back. They know what she is going to do. They are not going to stop her. But their eyes show their gratitude. And their grief.

Kalasin closes her eyes and thinks only of the fall.

Adigun arrives too late. By the time he reaches the tower, there is nothing left to see but a body.
