damn her head hurt. her eyes finally opened. she looked around at the ashes of her uo life. she glanced across to zofinur's ea life to see it just smouldering. the temptation was to simply close her eyes as she felt so tired of ea, so easy to do. there are other lands far afield to inspect. but here in her life it seemed so hard. she felt dirty from the accusations of ea and ashamed of herself. best just to close her eyes and fall asleep for ever. but there was a nagging thing. it came to her time after time after time. every time she closed her eyes it was like people refused to let her sleep. a flowing power, a just power, jeez wont they give up she thought but seemingly no they wouldnt. it was the sound, now what is that sound? ahhh at last she identified it. it was the sound of friendship. it said 'rise up lucy of kenton' ' do not be ashamed as ye have nothing to be ashamed of' lucy stood up, examined the ashes, she was in alot of pain, she glanced across to zofinur's ashes once more and thought of the injustice. ok she thought, for me, for zofinur and for the friendship that ea could not tear from her. FOR ALL THAT IS GOOD she proclaimed 'i will return' hopefully with zofinur at my side or i at his. as a postscript, dear ea, you can take the girl from uo but not the uo from the girl though im sure in a not too distant future you may try. may i ask that if you are making a char in the near future that maybe name it 'lucy of Kenton'
