Too concerned about hurting Nature, Red ran toward her and forced them all to stop their attacks on the cloud. They feared they would hit Red with their spells. But the arrows, fireballs and frost bolts still lingered in the air, on a collision course with him.
“No!” Silvor screamed. He ran between Red and one of his own fire balls.
A loud cry pierced through the air when a fireball exploded. Then, a massive billow of smoke consumed the dust cloud, Nature, Red and Silvor. Everyone else ran for cover, and each lost sight of the others in the havoc. Another horrific cry of pain and agony came from nearby. When they composed themselves, they saw Halli fall to her knees on the ground. She dropped her mace and shield beside her, and covered her face with her hands, which muffled some of her cries.
“She’s hurt!” Kaidyla rushed to her side. But when she got to her, she didn’t see a single mark on Halli and couldn’t figure out what caused her friend to scream. Then, she looked in front of her. When the smoke cleared, she saw Red, Silvor and Nature lay motionless on the ground. “Halli, heal them!”
But the young dwarf couldn’t move through her fear. She knew she had just watched her husband die right in front of her eyes.
“Halli! You need to get to them immediately and resurrect them before it’s too late!” Still no response. Kaidyla took her friend by her shoulders and shook her gently until Halli finally looked at her, and she saw tears streaming down her face.
“Go! Now!” commanded Kaidyla.
Halli rushed to the group and immediately saw Red and Nature’s chests rise and fall with breath while they lied unconscious. When she got to Silvor, he lay motionless in the snow. She started to shake, afraid she didn’t get to him in time. She kissed his face, stood up, and closed her eyes. Taking a deep breath, she summoned all of the love she felt for him, while she cast her resurrection spell – and prayed it would work. The rest of the group watched her silently and held their breath. Halli’s arms stretched out to her sides and her braids twisted around behind her head as they did each time she summoned a heal. Only this spell lasted much longer than any of her previous heals had.
After she cast the spell, Halli leaned back over her husband, and gently kissed his face. “Silvor! Please, come back to me! Come back to me!” But he remained still.
