âWhere is Apep? Have you seen her?â
âNot after she saved us. I felt that I needed to find you first, and from what Iâve seen, we are the only two that are unharmed,â he answered.
âIâm sure she is out here somewhere. She wouldnât have taken off without us,â I said as I turned, attempting to locate her amongst the smoke and embers. Nothing. âApep!â I cried. âApep!â
I turned and settled on a direction to begin moving to find her. From what I could tell, this destruction went on in every direction for at least a quarter of a mile, the fires still burning in the distance and overtaking the forest around us. Her fire had created a massive clearing in the middle of the forest once she had unleashed it, obliterating everything except those who she loved. I walked past Victor, jerking my arm away from him when he tried to hold me there.
âWhere are you going? Thereâs nothing else we can do here. We have to get back to Archerâs State and report this to the Sentinelâs Council.â
âThen go, Victor, but Iâm not leaving without her.â
âThis is crazy,â he said.
I had only made it a few paces before I turned back to him, rage filling me, and stalked toward him. He didnât move or even flinch despite my anger.
âYou can turn back and report this without me if you want, but I am not leaving without Apep. When she chose me, we made a vow that we would never leave one another, and I will not break it now. She trusts me.â
