I woke up with a pulsing headache. Groaning I sat up and saw faces staring at me. Here is a short description of their faces. Farid: Anger, Meggie: Relief, Mo: Relief/Worry, Mom: Relief/Worry, Roxanne: Hate/Anger/Confusion/did I mention hate. I blinked rapidly, trying to adjust to the light.

"What happened?" I asked, scared of the answers though.

Roxanne spoke first, "You, You kissed my husband and then killed him!"

Furrowing my eyebrows I looked at her, "Technically, He kissed me, two, you two aren't married, and three, What the hell are you talking about you psycotic woman."

Mo stepped up then stepped back as my mother sat next to me and looked pointedly at the people who filed out.

"Mom, what happened?"

"Basta, dear. He threw a knife at you. It struck you through the heart, killing you."

"But, I'm here." I said. Then I remembered an old legend. About the white women and fire. I gulped and looked at my mom who nodded sadly. Turning next to me, I saw Dustfinger's body laying there, cold and lifeless. Both Sahana and Gwin layed between us. I don't remember the last time I cried but I did now. I cried for my lost friend. The friendship that could've been something much more. I loved him to say the least. There, I said it. Or at least admitted it. I loved him with all my heart. And now, he's dead.

I learned a lot after that. I had gotten the man I loved and then had him snatched from my grasp. However, I learned that even heros must fall sometimes, but you have to fight like hell to get them back. I would find a way to get Dusty back, I would. Even if it ment I had to fight like SpitFire.
