The tower head rested in the clouds and there lay the answer to her quest. Something to save her country, to save herself and those like her.
She shifted and took flight. Against the winds she flew till she reached her destination.
Inside she returned to her shape. Nothing or no one guarded the precious gem. But when she made to seize it a voice rose. A warning; the one who selfishly seeks this power will pay the highest price. What must she do?
Look into your heart
Why do you want this power?
Take it if you dare.
