From the minute Tandor sees Nadina tossing colorful leaves gathered from the forest floor, he vows to add her to his harem. His partner Zack is not so certain the decision is a good one. The fact that she can fly on her own, is cause for serious doubt.
The woman in the vermillion scarf did not retreat or hesitate. She came rushing to him, and stopped only a foot away. She reached out her hand and placed it over his chest. He felt a slight tingling sensation at her touch. His mind whirled. A vagueness overcame him and calmed his beating heart. She took his hand and drew him farther into the woods. Together they neared the edge of a dark vortex. Without warning, the woman embraced him tightly and they leaped into the abyss together. His vision blurred and every thought winked out briefly.
