"Not badly, no. A couple burns and bruises, but I'm a lot tougher than you'd think. The medicine I came for earlier helped. Thank you both." you say, slowly sitting up. Elana releases you to allow you to your feet, smiling broadly. When she notices the crystal strapped to your pack, she leans in to examine it.
"What's this?" she asks, looking over the gem curiously.
"The spoils of war." you say, grinning. "And there's more where that came from."
You reach into your bag, handing each of them a shining sapphire. They both gasp, though Elana slightly louder than her master. "As thanks for the supplies, and the support."
The Healer just smiles, giving you an odd look. Elana is enraptured by the gem, turning it over and over in her hands.
"If you're not busy tomorrow, Elana, maybe we could go gather some Whint Blooms tomorrow. Assuming the rain's let up. I'm sorry I missed out on it today, but-"
You stop as she clamps you in another fierce hug, nodding. "That sounds great, Osyki. I'll see you tomorrow."
You smile, returning the hug. As you do, a sharp spark appears in the back of your mind.

You look around, confused. Neither the Healer nor Elana seem to have noticed the voice.
