Alex does not know why but she quickly writes down the name of 'Temple
of Rath-iren' although she does not really know why. Clearly seen in her
eyes are tears. Her hands shake as she goes to touch his face and closes
his eyes slowly. She brushes his hair away away from his forehead and
kisses him on the forehead. Her tears drip down onto him. She sobs, "So
far and so much fighting and we lose him."
"He that would make his own liberty secure must guard
even his enemy from oppression; for if he violates
this duty, he establishes a precedent that will
reach to himself."
