Chapter 6: The Price of Redemption

        Rilyn sat up all night with Father Achilleos. They talked till the sun rose and Caden descended from the tower with the young woman behind him. Rilyn watched as they walked into the temple. Caden's face looked like it was carved from wax. He stood there, staring forward, not blinking. The woman kissed him on the cheek.

        "Thanks," she said. She walked out of the temple.
        "Well, looks like that worked out for the best," Father Achilleos said. He stood up, and took Rilyn by the hand. "Remember what I said. And come back to see me after you've finished your errand with the Dragon Knights. May the sages guide you on your journey."
        Rilyn walked over next to Caden. "What happened up there?"
       "I don't want to talk about it." Caden walked to the door. "Let's depart."
       Father Achilleos watched them leave. "That boy." Father Coteson walked to his study, and pulled an ancient book from the shelf.

I know this is by far the shortest post to date. Yet, I'm focusing on writing the important points of the chapter sections. And this was the focus of the section. Come back tomorrow for the start of Chapter 7.
