Final Fantasy – Crystal Beacon #12

“We’ll see what we can do, miss Ailred,” Nora replied after a moment of silence among the group, “but if Volkmarr is around, we cannot just leave him be.”

Ailred looked about the group. “You all look like capable folk, why are you so afraid of one person?”

“This ‘single person’ destroyed a city which was far greater than Luthadale,” Deormund replied matter-of-factly, “So we cannot just leave him to his devices while we search a forest for some petulant spirit.”

The woman paled slightly at Deormunds tone but her own remained resolute. “If he truly is as dangerous as you say, then surely you also cannot ignore the traces of his passing.”

The knight held up a hand in front of him in a placating gesture. “We already said we would help, miss Ailred, we just need to find out what form our help will take. Mages do not just pull solutions out of their petticoats.”

Ailred glared at Deormund for a moment then relented, bowing slightly towards the knight and the rest of them. “I suppose I am not offering much as recompense, so I cannot rightly ask the heavens. Thank you all the same.”
