she heard the voice. His voice. Singing from one of the gardens behind her
house.The beautiful tenor voice called to her. She wandered outside tosee
who it was. She hid behind a large modwir tree and peeked around it to see
the handsome human bard who was playing a lute.
He was singing a song about love, and how it hits
you when you least expect it. He finished the song and looked up to
see Veritatia peeking at him.They both stood still for a minute and simply
gazed into each other's eyes.When they finally spoke, they told each other
about who they were and what they did. Veritatia asked Patrem to take her
