Kvasir caught Emelia hugging the stuffed bear Athena had given her that first night so long ago.
“I am trying to get you home. I promise.”
“That’s why I’m afraid. Here, I have you and Athena that care for me. Caledon and Dominic are infuriating but are like brothers. Back home…There is nothing and no one.” She hugged her bear again. “I can help Athena save the world. I know I can. And… I don’t want to be alone again.”
