The Conclusion

As the witch Qunal’s ashes lay burning in the field, what was left of the rescue party found it bittersweet. The wicked witch was dead; no longer to bring death and destruction to the countryside of the Elves, but the endeavor took its toll. Many in the party were dead from the spells that were cast by the now deceased witch, but mostly the Huntress was gone the very person they wanted to rescue was dead. The Bowman asked again, “Whose arrow was it, which struck the witch’s heart?” “It looked like the same arrow that the Huntress used, it had her markings!” he exclaimed. As they pondered on the subject the Warrior and the Bowman looked toward the path that lead into the woods, they both gasped, for there before them was the image of the Huntress and her bird companion, as they both glared the Huntress gave a small nod and waved as the bird encircled her, then quickly as the Huntress appeared, she then disappeared into the morning mist. “What does this mean?” The Bowman questioned. Holding back her tears the Warrior said; so very softly, “It means that she will always be protecting and watching over us.” So as the morning light was coming up over the forest, they both knew that the quest was finally over.
