Laurylhee, back in Highfolk after a long absence, meets Anariel, the daughter of Faerynn and Elaïda. She was touched by the striking likeness with her defunct mother, her friend. in mere ten years, Anariel has grown with the disturbing speed of the half elves, and was rather cold at first. She seems to barely remember her. To break the ice, Laurylhee challenged her to a mock duel, as she has learned from Faerynn the young girl was fond of swordplay. Of course, Laurylhee does not fight by the rules, and Anariel, despite all her skill, will soon learn something about the true nature of fight.
