“Please let me depart now via the Elevated Pathway to re-join my Temple’s Keeper–the bird companion who was separated from me when I dropped from the stone bridge.”
Smiling, Trieste motions to Elista, who picks up your pack and hands it to you with a slight grimace on her face. They both proceed to the entrance for the pathway, then stand guard as you climb upwards.
Halfway up, you turn to wave goodbye to Elista, then lose your footing and slip. This time, you are not so lucky in falling, ending up propelling downward head first. This only lasts a moment as you lose consciousness when you crash into the ground.
Trieste turns to Elista as the sisters stand over your lifeless body. “We are lucky this human didn’t survive the climb. I suspect he would have told others about us, and father would have had a hunting party track him down in the morning anyway.”
