Before returning to the inn for the night, Odus makes his way to stand on one of the town walls. From there, he looks out into the night to reflect on the events which have passed, and have yet to come, and the deaths of his two friends. Images of his friends’ bloodied, lifeless bodies are still very vivid, and fresh in his mind. Odus closes his eyes, and enters deep prayer.
“Rao, I see the path which you
have laid before me, and I accept. I understand that there will be more
suffering, more pain, and more dark times to come, and that it is in
those times where it’s most important to shine brightly, to be strong,
and stay the path. I trust in thee. Lord, may you bring us the
strength, the will, and the hope to do your work. I thank you for
watching over myself, and my friends, and although Sir Keegen and Bahamut were the ones whose power
returned my friends from the dead, I know it was you who worked through
me to make it so. I am your servant. I shall fear no evil, whether
living or supernatural, because you walk with me. May you watch over
Delphina and the old man, and
the others who have been enslaved ’til we get there to do your work.
This I ask of you, lord. Thanks be to Rao.”
Odus opens his eyes and says to himself, “Tomorrow’s a new day but, first a drink. My ass needs one.”
Odus makes his way back to the inn to have a drink with the people of Winterhaven, and rocks the house with songs of victory for today, and hope for tomorrow.
