"My friend's name was Liss, from the village of Kennet. She and I went to Vengard for education when we were young, like so many of our people had gone before us." She takes a deep breath. "We learned from your kind, Blessed, and we saw the advantages of your ways. Liss learned the ways of the body and healing, and I helped her study the plants we use here. How we can extract what is good for medicine." There is a small, nostalgic smile on her face as she recalls happier times. "But in the end, I grew tired of the city and I went home to Kennet. But Liss stayed. She wrote to me, telling me of the things she was still learning."
