There was comforting warmth in Vedleese’s voice as she replied, “She can use your trust to great advantage. She is on her cennia quest and has a clearer sense of direction than even she knows. There is promise for many in what she is doing.”
Caldenia swallowed. “I see,” she said reluctantly.
“However,” the voice continued, “you do have resources still.”
Caldenia listened for more, but the sense of Vedleese’s presence was gone, and the room remained silent.
