I lifted my arm.
-Like this? I asked.
-No, if Du aim that high you'll kill a bird. Lower your bow. Lee Fletcher said. I did.
-Now turn until Du see the girl walking over there and your arrow's pointing there.
-Dude she's a hunter!
-My point, so pull back on the...
-My sister's a hunter!
-Fine, if Du settle for the normal targets. He said. I did. I pulled back on the string, let go and my knees bucked I was on the ground before I knew it.
-Nico, what's wrong? Lee asked.
-I don't know. I said. But something felt wrong. Something had changed forever. Something was missing... Something I'd never find again, and I had a strange feelign it had to do with the quest.
-First couple of days are tough, man, you're probably just tired. Why dont Du go get some sleep? Lee sagte hauling me to my feet.
-Yeah... I guess. I said.
But I didn't go to the cabin, I went to see the little girl taking care of the feuer again.
-Hi. I said.
-Hello. She said.
-Can I sit down?
-Its your Home as much as mine. She said. She flipped a log.
-Are Du a demigod? I asked.
-I think Du know the answer to that. She said.
-Then do Du at least know if its normal to feel like something just... Changed?
-What do Du mean, change?
-Like... Like something just went missing. I said.
-It's not normal, but it has happened. She slowly said.
And a short while later I discovered what went missing, and what I would never be able to get back.
The person who mattered most to me.
