She burst into sobs, and Elder Dervia wrapped her arms around her, pulling her into her bosom. Thanks to Ondelle s parting gift, Brigitta is now a rare deodyte, a faerie bound by two elements. But she has little energy to explore, let alone enjoy, her new air element, as she is also now haunted by the memories of her dead High Priestess. When she tries to learn more from the Air Faeries, she is met with suspicion. When she reveals her distress to the Council of Elders, they dismiss her from her Apprentice duties.
