Life
It can twist your heart
Put you in the dark

"What do you fear?"

Doubt
It can close you in
Build the walls within

"You fear yourself..."

"...you fear you're not enough..."

"...you fear failure..."

I let fear control me
I let go
Didn't know
Where you answer would be…

"You fear death."

Right in front of you
Right in front of me
We were looking
But some how, someway
We couldn't see
That the love was always there
It's been around us everywhere
I had to fall to finally see

"You're truly not afraid?" Arokh asked.

Rynn turned her head slightly to look into one of his eyes. "Not when you're here."

He watched her silently for a second, then smiled. "Then we will face it together."

"Together." She leaned back against his neck and watched the storm rage. "As always, Arokh." More softly... "Head high..."

That you were right in front of me

Faith
It can lift you up
And we've got enough
To reach a new beginning
Love
Can withstand a storm
In the final hour
We'll find the joy of living
Don't let go

"Think we can do it again?" Arokh asked her with a grin.

"For the Great Spell of Protection?" Rynn pulled away for a second and thought back to Shiv'arass.

But it's hard to be afraid of failure when you've just seen how successful you can be.

Rynn looked up at Arokh and nodded. "Yes. Yes, I think we can."

"Think?" he repeated, raising an eyeridge.

Rynn smiled. "Fine. I know we can. Now our only problem is Navaros."

Right in front of you
Right in front of me
We were looking
But some how, someway
We couldn't see
That the love was always there
It's been around us everywhere
I had to fall to finally see
You were right in front of me

"No!" she wailed, her voice sounding oddly distant to her own ears. "Arokh!" She grabbed for their Bond, relieved to find it as strongly linked to herself as ever. "Arokh! Help me!"

"I'm here," the dragon's thought-voice replied.

Together, they plunged back into her body.

Blackness.

You are my tomorrow
There's safety in your arms
Where you go, I'll follow
'Cause you're the world where I belong

Rynn glanced down as Delon came to her side and grinned up at her. She put an arm around his shoulders wordlessly and they both turned their eyes to the flames again, waiting in silence as first Gholek, then Ebontyne and Morghus, Star and Nashiva, then Glaive and Kang-shi came forward with them into the circle of warmth and light.

Right in front of you
Right in front of me
We were looking
But some how, someway
We couldn't see
That the love was always there
It's been around us everywhere
I had to fall to finally see

"And so," Arokh rumbled, "it begins."

You were right in front of me
