Chay looked up, her whole body trembling, her eyes barely focused. Rob's words rang in her ears and a voice that came from far away echoed in her head
"Arise, Chay. Show us the meaning of Love."
Slowly Chay lurched to her feet. A flicker sparked behind her eyes, a fuse that had smouldered in her heart, unseen, eternal, for far beyond the measure of time. Her eyes grew bright, shone with pure energy, blazed with a fervent repudiation of the defeat of Love. Standing upright, the searing purity of her emotion cascaded like clean bright water into the room.
