What's a clever, handsome plantshaper to do when he Recognizes the Isle's only Healer? Why, enjoy it, of course. And this obviously isn't just any Recognition -- not when the pair of you have for offspring one of the strongest rock-shapers in the Isle, and one of the strongest and fastest lads in the Isle, and the most beautiful maiden.

Oh, yes, life is very good to Zarill. Perhaps too good. Perhaps Zarill forgets that life is change, at least on the World with Two Moons.
