“…Belka, when the earth around it has dried too completely to sustain it, the stone fern gathers up its leaves close and pulls up its own roots from the earth – we cannot hear the cries of plants, but we must assume that it hurts it some to do so – but still it does so, and it lets the winds take it with them until it finds what it is looking for. And perhaps it settles there or moves on again and again, but each time it must it takes the risk – because staying where the dry stone sucks the life away from it is undoubtedly the worst fate it can imagine”
– Karuum, the Heart of Growth
Belka, following Duier’s request, arrives at the top of Carn Vers. There they meet the remnant formed of fog and mist, grief and memory. There Belka gets a glimpse of Corpus’ dark path. There Belka hears Duier’s final words.
Belka meets an old friend, sort of.
