~As the winds toss the devastating waves against the island, Phoenixes struggle to save the histories of the past. Hosetu stands outside the Library with fifty other Phoenixes, each using up far too uch power to try to subdue the waves enough to give the rest time.~
~She turns to Carina, yelling to be heard over the cacaphony.~
"Omnes liberos in Aradnii cupio! NUNC!"
~The order sends the Princess hurrying, dodging wind, into the Library to tell the others where to take the precious tomes. Hosetu turns to face the wave, the salty wind whipping at her face, the sea spray mingling with her tears. This island had been safe haven for so many, and it was sinking into the ocean. Her home. Her hard won refuge from the world's troubles. SINKING. She shook her head and gave the order.~
"Let it sink. If you do not, we shall all die here."
Do not blink them away,
these tears that blind,
for they are the only truth.
Fate itself never remains
constant--never ceases to change.
Rhi Anai, "My Inconstance"
